The Drama of Being an Adolescent: A Gestalt Approach
with Jon Blend
Mar 21, Apr 25, May 30, Jun 27 & Jul 18 (attendance all dates required)
Adolescence can be a turbulent journey to emergent adulthood; a successful transition requires relationships that offer a good enough mix of support and challenge.
For some teenagers however coping with personal and social changes encountered en route is made more difficult by experiences of bullying, family breakdown or loss, ‘othering’ and identity shaming, even violence. Confronted with such pain some may withdraw whilst others engage in anti- social or hazardous contact styles.
This course caters for psychotherapists / counsellors and other professionals working with adolescents in a therapeutic/pastoral capacity. The course draws on the approaches of Gestalt therapists Mark McConville and Violet Oaklander, Attachment, Family Systems & composer Rod Paton’s Lifemusic.
