CSA - An Introduction for Counsellors and Support Professionals
Fri 7 April 2017, 09:30 – 16:30 BST
A one day workshop aimed at counsellors, therapists, social workers, healthcare professionals, youth workers, criminal justice system professionals, and others who support survivors of child sexual abuse (CSA) as part of their professional role.
The training draws on research into CSA and aims to provide professionals with greater awareness of the global context and prevalence of CSA, and to highlight the psychological, physical and behavioural impact it has on victims.
Key theories and definitions of paedophilia and sex offending are explored, as are the profiles of perpetrators.
For counsellors the training will illustrate the counteractive/corrective potency of the ‘person-centered’ approach in sex abuse counselling, and demonstrate the effective application of current theories and models to counselling practice through a process of observation and participation based on triad work. This practice can also benefit any support professional to reflect on and improve their communications with survivors.
