This full day workshop will introduce you to working with children and teenagers through the lens of child psychologists Jean Piaget, Erik Erikson, John Bowlby, David Elkind and others. We will look at various aspects of child development including how their thinking develops; how drawing can provide us with an insight into the child’s mind; why teenagers take risks; and why young people develop low self-esteem and experience anxiety and low-mood.
Taking a solution-focused approach to this work, we will gain a greater understanding of why children and teens see the world the way that they do and discover how to work more effectively with young people in a therapeutic context.
This CPD will provide you with the evidence base to understanding children and teenagers, useful hints and tips for providing an effective therapeutic environment and a handy workbook of activities you can use that is authorised by the NSPCC for solution focused therapists. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and to create your own child and teen-friendly therapeutic session guide.
