Description de l'évenement

Many adolescent girls today are in a crisis of rage and despair. Some try to disappear through starvation, others carve indecipherable symbols onto their arms or run away from home, still others bully and get bullied, hide weeping in their rooms, or attempt suicide. How can practitioners become more effective with this volatile population?

This highly practical workshop will explore essential principles underlying effective practice with adolescent girls ages 11-22. It will offer concrete strategies and methods for helping girls in crisis, and examine the limitations of old standards of care, such as self-harm contracts, and confidentiality rules. You’ll learn what questions to ask and how to rally support for the girls from their extended family, and relationship networks. You’ll also find out about a variety of practical strategies that help, including persona work, harm reduction, inviting resistance, fostering co-regulation, and developing a protective circle of adults.

You’ll hear about interventions specifically addressing two of the most vexing problems encountered by all practitioners working with adolescent girls: self-harm and social aggression, and learn how to include girls’ voices in discussions of sex and sexuality. You’ll find out what it takes to stay connected to these struggling adolescents as you help them become competent, inter-dependent young women.
