⭐ 2nd February 2019 (1 days) – Working with Children and Families

CPD Event title: Working with Children and Families

Brief Description Of Event: Research is showing that 1 in 5 children will experience mental health issues before the age of 18. Having seen a dramatic increase in the number of children coming for hypnotherapy in my practice over last 3 years. I have found myself increasingly specialising in this area. Working with children is not just about the symptoms of the child but it is about working with families. A much different dynamic than working 1-2-1 with an adult.
Techniques for working with children are different and a comprehensive intervention is imperative as well as a sensitive empathy towards the parents and carers who are often under enormous stress when things are not going well with their little ones.
This 1 day workshop will take you through the initial consultation process that I have developed over the last 8 years in practice. The workshop will cover the regulations for working with children and give you a session by session plan for working with conditions such as anxiety, pooing/bed wetting and selective eating. All of which are common problems presented with at our clinic.

Learning Objectives: • On the workshop you will learn:
• What has changed in society to cause increasing problems for children (social media, gaming)
• How to do a child focus intervention. Adult pre-talk and rapport building
• Legal and ethical requirements for working with children
• Other agencies – what other help is there available for children
• 3 step approach to intervention covering appropriate induction, deepeners and intervention for some of the most
common problem such as: Anxiety, Encopresis (pooing)/bed wetting (enuresis) and selective eating
• Working with additional needs ASD, ADHD
