Vulnerable and troubled children and young people are easily triggered into feelings that are overwhelming. By exploring different ways of communicating about these big feelings, difficult questions and worrying behaviours, we can support and empower our children to express themselves in a more positive and safer way. This practical workshop will introduce easy ideas as an alternative to stand alone talking, helping a child or young person to integrate the information more deeply. It will offer the attendee a creative response when faced with difficult and challenging conversations.
