The straight talking un-PC Guide to working with Suicidal Youth.
Francis Jamieson, private practice Psychotherapist/Supervisor/Professional trainer, HOD Counsellor East Auckland School and author of "A Practical Guide to Working with Suicidal Youth, A New Zealand Perspective" 2013 presents a one-day workshop which will demonstrate the power of potent relationship building and the importance of this in keeping our suicidal tamariki safe and alive. An in-vivo role play will model style/interventions and strategies that promote the vital connection that is needed to change the minds of those determined to die by suicide - to seeing the point of living.
The workshop aims to model experiential psychotherapeutic techniques that can pull young people back from the brink. It focuses on what you as a therapist can do and how you can make the difference.
