Using Play and Creative Approaches when Working with Adolescents

This workshop is part of a series of training events which support this diversification of practice by play therapists and other suitably qualified professionals, including teachers, psychotherapists, social workers, psychologists, early years teachers, family support workers and project workers.

This experiential training focuses on engaging adolescents in play and creative activities. The teenage years can be very challenging, so too can working with adolescents. It can be difficult to find suitable, engaging, developmentally appropriate activities and techniques to use in our work with adolescents, and indeed pre-teens. This interactive workshop is designed for professionals working with adolescents who are interested in developing their skills for engaging adolescents in playful, creative, activities which are designed to meet developmental and relationship-based needs. A variety of play and creative approaches and techniques, will be explored as a means to engage teenagers and address those needs.
