Updated on Sep, 2023
Language - English
Communicating with children in general is skilled work, but when children have been abused, the challenges of effective communication can be much greater. In this course, highly experienced childhood trauma expert Mary Walsh offers useful insights to serve as the basis of high-quality professional practice.
This is one of three courses presented by Mary Walsh based on her extensive experience of working with young children traumatized by abuse. Together the three courses offer a basis and framework for rising to the many challenges involved in working with children traumatized by abuse.
A key part of the course is an explanation and demonstration of her renowned toybox method of direct work. This course highlights Mary Walsh’s pioneering approach. It will be of value to anyone involved in – or training to be involved in – working with abused children by offering not only useful ideas, but also a helpful method for direct work.
We are unlikely to make real progress in helping abused children to recover from abuse-related trauma if we are not effective in communicating with children. There are no magic answers to getting it right, but there is much that we can learn from highly skilled and experienced experts like Mary.
This course will be of value to anyone working with children, especially those that have been subjected to abuse.
