Aim of Workshop:
To help participants work with anger in the room; to not dismiss it or ignore it, but to help the client find ways to communicate and to be heard in a non-threatening way. This will be an interactive day with the opportunity for participants to share their experiences of working with anger. A facilitated space will be given to look at the different reactions and responses from the perspective of both sides (Clients and Participants). Let’s look at any related challenges and see what those challenges might be?
Will support participants to:
- Give the client tools to express their anger where anger might be part of a presenting issue.
- Give participants tools to help facilitate space with their client.
- Find ways of helping clients express their emotions in a non-threatening way.
