'From bicycle wheel to bedspring' - relational approaches to working with complexity and trauma
45 Thomas Street
Carol Jolliffe has worked for Child and Family Training since 2000 and is accredited as a trainer for a range of assessment and intervention tools. She has trained for child and family training in a range of social care and health settings in the UK, Ireland, Egypt, Cyprus, Sweden, Germany, and Hong Kong. She is currently involved in developing their family work-focused training courses. She has worked with children and families in social work and children’s mental health services since 1979. She qualified as a social worker in 1986 and has worked as a practitioner and manager in children’s residential and community settings, including a duty and assessment service and a national therapeutic residential resource. Carol additionally trained as a family therapist (and is also a qualified systemic supervisor) as part of her move to children’s mental health services. She now works as a consultant systemic psychotherapist and as clinical lead for family therapy in an NHS trust. She has a private clinical practice, offering family therapy and assessments for prospective adopters and foster carers. She teaches on family therapy and clinical psychology training courses for the Tavistock Centre and Canterbury Christchurch University.
Carol will focus on the development of systemic skills and approaches for application in counselling practice including an introduction to a range of systemic ideas and models, such as Karl Tomm's interventive interviewing, solution-focused practice, working with genograms, and using contexts creatively. Carol will share relevant examples from her own practice, but the emphasis will be on participants practising and developing skills for use in their own work. Participants will be able to discuss their own cases and to consider how learning from the workshop may be applied.
The workshop will use presentations, DVD material, small and large group exercises, and (hopefully!) lively discussion!
This weekend event will finish at 5 pm on Saturday and 3.30 pm on Sunday.
