Working therapeutically with children is very different to working with adults, each worker beginning this vocational endeavour should first have appropriate training. This course aims to deliver the foundations for any worker to become proficient in working with children. After working with children in Sydney in various capacities, I have discovered the basic precepts to connecting and managing work with children and young people. We will cover theoretical underpinnings of therapy including experiential therapies such as art, play and sand therapy. We will explore managing the self as an effective worker and the differences to working with adults. Finally we will use a developmental lens to understand the different ways to work with children and young people of all ages, including the young person in side all of us.
I can tailor this package to suit any vocational application and also offer clinical supervision under ACA and AASW registrations.
