About the training:

This highly interactive and experiential workshop focuses primarily on the differences between working with adults and working with young people, helping you make the necessary cognitive and emotional adjustments between working with these two very different client groups.  It is constructed on the very clear evidence-based competences that the BACP have identified and is designed to complement and extend the training offered in courses aimed at working with adults.
