Adolescence to Adulthood
Formulating our responses to emotional disconnection and "acting out" on the body and on the outside world.
This programme provides an effective framework for anyone working with adolescents and the networks around them from puberty through to early adulthood. It is particularly aimed at addressing gaps in provision for families with increased vulnerability due to factors such as parental mental illness, deprivation and trauma.
The 12 week course is delivered in two five week blocks plus two revision/consultation sessions to help embed the learning into practice, which take place in week 6 and week 12.
The course aim is to deepen the participant’s understanding of conscious and unconscious factors involved in adolescent developmental processes. To recognise
the ways in which our understanding of adolescent development builds on our thinking about younger children, and how it can inform work with children of all ages.
We are not currently recruiting for this programme but are gathering expressions of interest with regards to a future course. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest.
