In 2016, BACP created Basic competences for practitioners working with children and young people (CYP). These were designed for students on adult client oriented training courses who began working with CYP on placement to practice safely and ethically.

This 2 day workshop aims to offer an experiential space to explore these competences using case examples, creative media, skills practice and large group discussion.

Day One will cover the following topics:

  • Child and adolescent development and transitions
  • Communication with children and young people
  • Working within the context of the counselling setting
  • Risk assessments with children and young people

Day Two will cover the following topics:

  • Mental health and Young People
  • Developing a contract for therapeutic work with Young People
  • Ethical and legal issues and professional practice
