This training workshop is open to those offering supervision to counsellors/psychotherapists working with adolescent clients. The course will address the principal therapeutic considerations specific to working with this age group including how the adolescent’s developmental limitations and evolving capacity for contact shapes the therapeutic field. We will also examine transference issues specific to the adolescent process, together with the dynamics which emerge through parental involvement in the work.
In addition, case management dilemmas will be identified and explored including assessment, multi-disciplinary contact, child protection, legal and ethical issues pertaining to the work. Learning style will include didactic input, experiential component, demonstration, and practicum work.
Dates: Friday 1st June 2018
Time: 10 am – 5 pm
Venue: Dublin Counselling & Therapy Centre, 41 Upper Gardiner St, Dublin 1
