Working with adverse childhood experiences

27th September 2024, 10.00am - 4.30pm
Counsellors and trainees

The phrase adverse childhood experience (ACE) is a current ‘buzzword’ but what does it mean?

How might this affect the development and mental health of children and young people?

In this workshop, we explore ACEs and examine their impact on the young client, from attachment issues to behavioural issues.

The workshop looks at how to help the client to tell and process their story safely, avoiding re-traumatisation.

​Using case studies and practical activities, we look at how to develop a therapeutic relationship to benefit the young client who has adverse childhood experiences, while understanding the therapist's frame of reference and taking into account the impact on the therapist.

​The workshop is suitable for any practitioner looking to work with children and young people, or wishing to develop and enhance their knowledge and skill set for any of their client work or support ethical practice.

​A certificate of attendance will be provided showing six hours of CPD.
