Richard Rose 2020 Australian Tour
- 20 May 2020

Course also available in: Adelaide
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 and attachment, 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 provide participants with an introduction to the Life Story process and how this work helps children make sense of the past, so that what has happened to them does not dominate, control or inhibit the present. Based on Richard's book 'Life Story Therapy with Traumatised Children - A Model for Practice', attendees will be shown techniques that have been successfully utilised to assist children to communicate their trauma.
Please note that there is some overlap in content between this workshop and the Communicating with Traumatised Children and Young People workshop.
Participants will learn:
- Gathering and collating information
- The importance of interpretive skills
- The significance of 'magical thinking'
- Working with the 'stuck' child
- Techniques for producing the Life Story book
Who Should Attend
Life Story Therapy will greatly benefit all those working with children affected by early life trauma including: those working with children in care; teachers; youth workers; therapists; and those who are involved in recovery work with children and families in need.
