Communicating with Traumatised Children & Young People
Richard Rose 2020 Australian Tour
- 21 February 2020
- 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Berry Street is proud to present Richard Rose's 2020 Australian Tour. From February to October, Richard Rose will deliver a series of workshops across Australia in Adelaide, Brisbane, Cairns, Canberra, Darwin, Hobart, Launceston, Melbourne, Morwell, Mount Gambier, Perth, Shepparton and Sydney (see all available dates).
As an Honorary Associate of Berry Street, Director of Child Trauma Intervention Services (UK), Professor of Social Work and Social Policy at Latrobe University and Honorary Associate at the Institute for Open Adoption Studies, University of Sydney, Richard Rose is a leading expert on Therapeutic Life Story Work and working with 'hard to reach' children and young people.
During his Australian Tour, Richard will work with practitioners to enhance their engagement with children and young people affected by early life trauma. Through his innovative and creative techniques, Richard will demonstrate ways of working that enable placements to become healthy and nurturing through enhanced understanding of attachment and trauma, with the ultimate goal of helping these young people achieve their full potential.
If you are a professional working with children and young people affected by early life trauma in child protection, out of home care, youth work, education or involved in recovery work with children and families in need, this is a wonderful opportunity not to be missed.
This workshop will introduce theories as well as 20 different approaches and techniques that can be used in everyday practice. The day will be practical, provide practice-rich examples and invite group contribution and engagement. Those that attend will have the opportunity to try out these techniques and to actively consider their current work and evaluate how these approaches might benefit the young people they work with.
Please note that there is some overlap in content between this workshop and the Introduction to Therapeutic Life Story Work workshop.
Participants will learn:
- Techniques for working with the ‘hard to reach’ child
- Listening and interpretive skills
- The significance of feelings and ‘magical thinking’
- Trauma and recovery
- Techniques for communicating and recording
- Issues of confidentiality
- Addressing sensitive issues and providing appropriate responses
