There is in every child at every stage a new miracle of vigorous unfolding.
This 3-hour online training is designed for those in child counselling and mental health services who want to ‘hear the voice of the child’. Learn how to therapeutically and playfully engage with young clients for assessment, intervention and outcome evaluation.
Hear about creative child counselling interventions, imaginative play-based engagement and assessment tools that have been used effectively by the presenter for over 12 years in managing family violence, significant losses and trauma. Inspired by Narrative Therapy’s playfulness and inventiveness, gain understanding about responding to problems and collaborative identity restoration.
This training will assist you to develop simple, respectful ways to establish boundaries, explain confidentiality and assess risk with clients 5-17 years old. It will incorporate a range of engaging, imaginative activities to invite connection, foster enjoyable participation and help a child both explore their current problems, and reveal and name their resourcefulness, strengths, hopes and values.
The training has a child-centred approach, but is not about ‘child-directed play.’ The smorgasbord of inventive, evidence-based practices are informed by the principles of Narrative Therapy, Play Therapy, Mindfulness, Brief Solution-focused, Strengths-based, Systems Theory, Single Session Therapy and a sprinkling of Mary Poppins’ magic.
All those working with children and young people in a counselling or case work capacity who want to work in more engaging, strength based and creative ways. Psychologists, school counsellors, social workers, counsellors, youth workers, case workers, pastoral workers, other allied health professionals and students of these disciplines working with children and young people.
