SRC - Therapeutic Intervention with Adolescents - 4th & 5th April 2020

Presenters Bio: 

Bronagh Starrs is Programme Director for the MSc Adolescent Psychotherapy in Dublin Counselling & Therapy Centre in partnership with University of Northampton and Founder & Director of Blackfort Adolescent Gestalt Institute. She maintains a private practice in Omagh, Northern Ireland, as a psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, academic and trainer, specialising in working with adolescents. Bronagh is an 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 book Adolescent Psychotherapy - A Radical Relational Approach (Routledge, London) has received international acclaim.

Workshop Outline: 

This workshop aims to offer an alternative to the typical treatment approaches which are available to clinicians who work with an adolescent client population. In the last number of years schools, counselling organisations and those in private practice have experienced a notable increase in both referrals and direct requests for therapeutic support for adolescents. Professionals can feel out of their depth with the complexity of the work with adolescent clients.Establishing relationally meaningful therapeutic alliances with the adolescent and securing the young person’s commitment to engaging with a supportive adult in the first place requires rich appreciation and close attention to nuanced contact episodes from the outset. During the training, emphasis is placed on development of the therapeutic relationship and commitment to the adolescent’s first person experience.

CPD Certs will be emailed to participants after attendance at the Workshop
