Event- Working with Children in Mental Health:
Children are not mini adults, and specific considerations need to be made before deciding to work with this population.
In this introductory workshop you will be given an overview of these key considerations when moving into work with children in mental health, which includes unique modalities, differences in interpersonal neurobiology, seeing your client through an attachment lens, setting up an appropriate treatment space, and guidelines to working with parents and systems.
