Event Overview

Join Dr Penny Utton for this 2-day workshop designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills for working with young people.

What will I learn?

This course looks at what depression is and how to differentiate between, and thus work with, the various types of depression disorders.
It explores several techniques and skills that are helpful when working with this specific population and also discuss ways of managing common difficulties associated with this work e.g. anger, silence, non-committal responses and considers why there seems to be a rise in depression in children and young people and ways of working with or alongside parents of children with depression. We will also discuss self-harm and suicide risk and ways of managing this with young clients.
