SRC - Therapeutic Intervention with Adolescents - with Bronagh Starrs Two Day Event  27th & 28th Feb 2021

Presenters Bio:

Bronagh Starrs is Founder & Director of Blackfort Adolescent Gestalt Institute and Programme Director for the MSc Adolescent Psychotherapy in Dublin Counselling & Therapy Centre in partnership with University of Northampton. She maintains a private practice in Omagh, Northern Ireland, as a psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, writer 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:

The practitioner’s art is not an art 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.  This 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 2-day virtual training experience, we will attend to both the relational and the strategic grounds of adolescent psychotherapy.
This training programme introduces topics such as: 

- A Theoretical Framework for Adolescent Development •

-  Contact Assessment • - 

- Development of the Therapeutic Alliance with the Adolescent & his/her Parents • - 

- Self-Symbolism & Creativity: Gaining Access to the Adolescent’s Phenomenological Experience 

- The Impact of Shame on the Adolescent Journey

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