Working ethically with risk in children and young people

26th July 2024, 10.00am - 4.30pm
Counsellors and trainees

The sensitive topic of risk is one of the areas that can cause anxiety in the therapist, especially when working with young people.

​The workshop explores:

  • understanding what we mean by risk
  • understanding our own frame of reference when working with self-harm and suicidal clients
  • how to assess risk in a young person
  • how to work effectively with a young client that presents with self-harm or suicidal ideation
  • when and how to break confidentiality
  • when and how to refer to keep the client safe and ensure ethical professional practice
  • the different referral pathways and possible consequences of referral
  • self-care of the therapist

Due to the sensitive nature of the subject, we also look at the impact on the practitioner and how to manage our own well-being.
