Nick Luxmoore - young people, attachment, dependence, aloneness and death
Why is life so unfair? What’s going to happen to me? Will I always be on my own? Why should I care about other people? What’s the point of living if we’re all going to die anyway? Is it possible to cheat the system?
Young people are always on a continuum between dependence and independence, attaching to stay safe while separating in order to take personal responsibility. So much of their behaviour and so much of their distress is powered by anxiety about these and other existential issues.
This day workshop will explore ways in which counsellors might understand and work with these issues, both theoretically and practically. We’ll share ideas, experiences and learn together.
