Nick Luxmoore CPD Workshop 'Young People, Anger, Hatred & Disappointment'
Sat 6 May 2017, 10:00 – 16:30 BST
‘Young People, Anger, Hatred and Disappointment’
CPD workshop - presented by Nick Luxmoore
Designed for counsellors and counsellors-in-training
Some young people seem stuck as ‘the angry person’ while, for others, anger would be an achievement. Working with young people involves working constantly with anger, our own as well as that of young people and their institutions. How should we respond? Should we be trying to manage anger away or encouraging it?
And what about when young people say that they hate someone or something or themselves? Is hatred normal? Is it evil? Is it related to love? Or is it part of a more profound disappointment that all young people experience and, with our support, must learn to bear?
In this workshop we’ll explore some theoretical understandings of anger, hatred and disappointment. We’ll share experiences and practise ways of working effectively with young people who regularly confront us with these powerful feelings.
