Present a Workshop: Therapeutic Interventions with Adolescents - A Relational Approach.

Presenter Bio: Bronagh Starrs is Founder & Director of Black fort Adolescent Gestalt Institute and is Programme Director for the MSc Adolescent Psychotherapy in Dublin Counselling & Therapy Centre, in partnership with the University of Northampton, UK. She maintains a private practice in Omagh, Northern Ireland, as a psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, writer, presenter and trainer, specialising in working with adolescents. As well as her work as a parenting consultant with many families, schools and agencies, she is also an experienced therapist working with children, adults and groups. Bronagh is a renowned adolescent development specialist and has considerable experience teaching and presenting throughout Ireland and internationally on the developmental implication of trauma on the adolescent journey. Her approach to therapeutic intervention with adolescents is both innovative and deeply relational

Workshop Outline:  The practitioners art is not of technique; it is an art born of authenticity, openness to the present moment and creative improvisation. Therapeutic moments don't "just happen", particularly with adolescent clients. And they most certainly are not the product of a formulaic application of technique. The therapeutic moment grows out of the structured ground of the therapy.

The structured ground has at least two critical dimensions: the relational (i.e. the fostering of supportive connections) and the strategic (i.e. assessment of developmental status & formulation of praxis strategy for promoting new development).

During this 1 day intensive training programme, we will attend to both the relational and the strategic grounds of adolescent psychotherapy. This training workshop introduces topics such as;

- A Theoretical Framework for Adolescent Development

- Contact Assessment

- Development of the Therapeutic Alliance with the Adolescent

- Self Symbolism of Creativity: Gaining Access to the Adolescent's

  Phenomenological Experience

- The Impact of Shame on the Adolescent Journey

 

Training Level: All Levels.

 

CPD certificates will be emailed to participants after attendance at the Workshop.
