￼“Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children ￼to be always and forever explaining things to them.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery
￼Family systems are the weft and weave of all human life. Understanding family systems has ￼significance for all clinical work and especially when relating to children.
Over the weekend we are likely to focus on the following areas:
- Working with families, young people and children
- Looking through the eyes of a child or young person
- Making interventions and the rationale for them
- Family systems; ancestral, original and co-created
- Play therapy for adults
- Rejuvenation and self-care of therapists
Learning gained through your own family system experiences and other study will be built on. We will work with a light-hearted touch and aim for increased spontaneity and capacity for playfulness. We will learn through dramatic enactments, sharing, playing, drawing, singing, being in nature and teaching.
