Working Therapeutically With People Experiencing Family Estrangement
Time & Location
About The Event
This training is for psychological therapists, clinical social workers, and trainees seeking a deeper understanding of family estrangement. Stand Alone is the leading organisation working in this field in the UK. We offer innovative support services for all people experiencing estrangement. We help people of all ages who feel they have been cut off as well as those who have walked away.
The two days will provide a thorough grounding on the theory and practice of working therapeutically with the under-tackled issue of family estrangement. The training encompasses experiential and theoretical aspects including self-reflective group work and case discussion.
The content of the two days includes:
- Examination of the theoretical knowledge base on this subject and an opportunity to thoroughly mine this in order to develop best practice.
- Exploration of our own fears and biases regarding family estrangement.
- Reflection on approaches and challenges in working with someone experiencing family estrangement.
- An opportunity to meet and discuss theoretical, clinical and pragmatic issues with leading researchers and practitioners in the field.
Tickets are available for single days or both days. Day two will build on the work of day one but can be attended as a standalone event.
Day One: Friday 8 Feb Registration from 9.30am Starts at 10am and ends at 4:30pm
Day Two: Sat 9 Feb Registration from 9.30am Starts at 10am and ends at 4:30pm
