Anxiety Explained, Kids Empowered

Based on the best selling book this hugely popular workshop, explores why anxiety is a very normal human response but for as many as 1 in 5 young people, the symptoms become so intrusive, they significantly interfere with day to day living. The effects can steal into families, classrooms and friendships. They can undermine the way children see themselves and shrink their world – but it doesn’t have to be this way. Anxiety is very manageable when it is recognised and properly managed. With the right support children can be empowered with the skills and knowledge to manage anxiety and move forward with courage and resilience.

Presenter: Karen Young

 

Duration: 7 hours (1 day) workshop to professionals.Along with shorter versions for parents, schools and young people.

Harnessing the Therapeutic Power of Genograms

This workshop will open up the enormous possibilities and potential of the genogram as a process for both assessment, and intervention. Widely used by family therapists and all health care professionals, the genogram is a graphic way of organising the mass of information gathered during a family assessment and finding patterns in the family system for more targeted treatment. Done correctly a genogram interview is a powerful assessment tool giving more detailed understanding of case presentations and how to plan targeted interventions.

ACCESSABILITY 

Adapting Therapy for Children and Adolescents with Intellectual Disabilities

Nearly half of all children and adolescents with an Intellectual Disability (ID) have co-morbid mental health disorders along with elevated rates of both externalising and internalising problem behaviours compared to their typically developing peers, with anxiety reported as the most prevalent mood disorder in young people with ID. The added impact of mental health difficulties on the lives of young people with ID is substantial. Once mental health problems emerge, young people with ID are likely to suffer from them for a long time and significantly impact educational, vocational and social opportunities.

Recent research supports the use of psychological therapies among young people with mild to moderate ID. Despite this, rates of mental illness remain high and access to mental health services is low. One identified barrier to people with ID accessing psychological treatments is the confidence of practitioners in working with this population.

This is a workshop for professionals who work with children and adolescents with ID. The presentation will provide an understanding of how Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) can be adapted for the unique needs of children and adolescents with ID and used as an effective intervention. In addition, the workshop will provide a better understanding of the components of CBT and how to use the materials in a way that is most clinically relevant for this population.

Trainer: Dr Anastasis Hronis

Duration: 7 hours (1 day) workshop to professionals
