May 5 - 10:00 am - May 6 - 6:00 pm
Two days postgraduate course by Trisha Caetano
The internal Teenager
When we became teenagers our interaction with our family is changed, often dramatically, and our feelings and social priorities were different. A teenagers response is different than a child’s and different therapeutic methods must be used when encountering the “Inner” teenager. Body changes, hormones, alienation from the family all occur during the teenage years. How do we talk with a client regressed into a teenager? How do we negotiate the energy of that time and place?
When doing Inner Child work, we have to be able to work with how the internal teenager interacts with the inner children. How to avoid inner abuse or over protectiveness of the inner teenager must be handled. These interpersonal interactions must be resolved to create harmony.
Sibling Relationships, Sibling Abuse
We too often overlook the impact siblings have on each other, in both positive and negative ways. How to work with the dynamics of the different interrelationships children have with other in one family, what to expect in working with the child who protected or abused or bonded in negative ways.
