Meandering in the forest – A case study of the beginnings of two journeys

In this paper, the presenter explores the workings of the therapeutic relationship created between twin boys and himself while working with them in a group, together and separately. He considers the underpinning theories of his approach (Attachment Theory and Contemporary Trauma Theory with strong consideration of the Emotional Intelligence competencies), and his observations and results and explores the question of how best to support their passage in an ambiguous existence. 

Presenter: Peter McKay
