Separation & Complex Family Configuration: Meaning-Making & Identity Formation In Adolescence Two Day Training Workshop.
The structure of family systems has changed and very often these complex dynamics of family experience create additional challenge for the adolescent as s/he attempts to find a newly emerging sense of belonging and identity in the world.
In this two-day workshop we will explore the impact of separation and complex family configuration for the adolescent, paying particular attention to the adolescent’s first-person experience.
A clear relational framework for organising therapeutic intervention will be presented as participants learn about:
- The legacy of childhood separation
- Managing the assessment process
- Intervening with warring parents
- Identifying child protection issues as a result of parental hostility
- Supporting parents to attune to their adolescent
- Supporting the adolescent to make meaning of and navigate a complex family field
