Grief, loss, transition and change: Creative ways of working with children, adolescents and adults to promote mental health


DUE TO CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES WE ARE LOOKING AT AN ALTERNATIVE TO FACE TO FACE.

PLEASE CONTACT US FOR AN UPDATE

A two-day experiential course

Presenter: Anthony Hillin

This popular two-day experiential workshop invites you to undertake for yourself a range of creative techniques for working with loss. Experiential learning in this context has the dual purpose of:

  1. giving you direct experience of the potential power and subtleties of these techniques to inform your work with clients
  2. increase awareness of ways in which your own experience of loss may influence you when working professionally on issues of loss and transition, eg in terms of countertransference and self-care.
    Anthony has delivered this workshop to over 100 audiences in Europe and Australasia.

Learning objectives
By the end of the course participants will have:

  • Reviewed and developed their skills in working with children, adolescents and adults who are bereaved or experiencing loss resulting from transition or change
  • Gained confidence in using a range of creative ways for working with young people and adults including story telling, art, writing, salt sculptures and other experiential approaches
  • Explored how these techniques can be used in individual, family and group contexts
  • Developed skills in assessing when normal grief reactions become disorder and choosing appropriately from a spectrum of interventions
  • Considered approaches to working on loss from a number of treatment perspectives including Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Mindfulness
  • Identified social, cultural, psychological, spiritual and biological factors in grief and loss work
  • Explored how the theory of grief and loss can inform their work in practical ways
  • Considered risk and protective factors (including attachment style), resilience and the evidence of effectiveness for interventions
  • Increased their awareness of the possible impact of this work on themselves as workers and developed strategies for coping with this.
