This course caters for psychotherapists or counsellors and other professionals working with adolescents in a therapeutic/pastoral capacity. The course draws on the approaches of Gestalt therapists Mark McConville and Violet Oaklander, Attachment and Family Systems theories and Playback Theatre. This course combines experiential learning with direct teaching. We will use role-play to explore engaging adolescents and their families. Participants will explore approaches that enable teenagers to rework their relationship boundaries whilst supporting self-ownership. We will review our own teen experiences and consider how adolescents can be helped to discover their abilities, develop life- skills and access support.
