Wait! Can I work with an adult who was adopted?
CPD adoption workshop
Online training, delivered via Zoom.
NESTT is delighted to announce a new CPD workshop for therapists who want to know more about working with adoption.
In 2010, the law changed so that only counsellors and psychotherapists registered as an adoption support agency with Ofsted are able to offer therapeutic support in certain circumstances. Many therapists are not aware of this legal change, and others think that they cannot work with anyone adopted. An interesting polarised position!
The first of our adoption series supports practitioners to understand the legal framework and requirements to work with adults who have been adopted.
This training for counsellors, psychotherapeutic counsellors and psychotherapists will enable participants to:
• Have an understanding of the legal framework.
• Know what is allowed under the Children’s Act (2002) 2010 amendment and what is prosecutable.
• Consider when to accept a referral, when to refer on and when to continue working with a client who discloses being adopted.
• Develop an insight into the adult’s lived experience of adoption.
• Gain an introductory understanding of how to work therapeutically with an adult who has been adopted.
This CPD is the first of a series of workshops on adoption related themes.
