Am I good? Am I bad? Am I mad?

This day workshop is led by Nick Luxmoore who is a trainer, previous school counsellor, teacher, youth worker and psychodrama psychotherapist (UKCP registered). He has over 38 years’ experience of working with young people and the professionals supporting them.

About the workshop: Identifying the therapeutic task in counselling with young people who are angry, anxious, chaotic, stuck or acting out in a thousand ways. With this young person, what’s really going on? What’s at the heart of it? We haven’t got long, so where does our conversation need to go? Beyond listening and empathising, what’s going to make this therapeutic? How do we work with a young person’s internal world?

There will be some theoretical input, but the emphasis of this workshop will be practical and experiential. We will share ideas, experiences and learn together.

Date: Saturday 24th March 2018, 9.30am to 5.00pm

Venue: The Trinity CE Primary Academy, Quakers Road, Devizes, Wiltshire, SN10 2FH
