How to work effectively with troubled teenagers (live online training)

The programme is varied and intensive, yet lively with a strong focus on gaining skills. It clarifies what healthy teenage development looks like, why things can go wrong and the best ways to help young people overcome obstacles and begin to create lives for themselves that work well.

Richard also shows how, by working with the ‘givens’ of human nature, and ensuring that sound knowledge of how people really function is applied intelligently to teenagers, you can speed up progress, reduce anti-social behaviour and teen depression, and bring young people real benefits.

At the end of the day you will find yourself more empowered to respond effectively to each individual’s needs, temperament and learning style, whilst avoiding the emotional pitfalls of working in stressful situations.

NB The training will be recorded and made available for 2 weeks afterwards – in case anyone experiences technical difficulties on the day.

How to avoid burnout: Self-care for helping professionals

To help others effectively we need to have enough ‘spare capacity’ – which means looking after our own wellbeing too – new research shows us how.

When our day-to-day jobs involve continually listening to other people’s emotional difficulties, how do we avoid being overwhelmed by them ourselves or succumbing to compassion fatigue? We are the ‘tool’ of our trade. It could be argued that we have a duty to those we work with to prioritise our own mental health and wellbeing so that we can give them the best possible service. This workshop shows you how.
