Pre-trial therapy: working therapeutically with clients involved in the criminal justice system.
Empowering or silencing the client?
Wednesday November 2nd 2016, 10am - 4pm
Training is £70 for voluntary organisations and £90 for statutory and private individuals.
This training asks:
- How much do you know about supporting clients involved in the criminal justice system?
- Do you have a fear of silencing the client?
- Or a fear around the confidentiality of sessions?
- Are you concerned about whether clients’ notes end up in court?
Exploring the myths around pre-trial therapy, this one-day workshop will provide an overview of:
- the context of counselling within the criminal justice system
- experiential sessions
- case studies
- note taking
- practice issues for offering pre-trial therapy
Who is the course for?
Practitioners working in a professional or voluntary capacity who may be likely to work with clients who are involved in the criminal justice system. Clients can present with a history of childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault, or rape in any clinical context. Clients who are the victims of any crime may become part of a criminal investigation. Counsellors in any clinical setting therefore need to be aware of how to work within the context of the criminal justice system.
To develop the knowledge and confidence in supporting clients who are going through the criminal justice system.
