Presenter Dr Margot Sunderland
Without organising painful memories into narrative form, too many children
and young people are held hostage to frightening emotions and debilitating mental health issues, often for years and sometimes for life. It really doesn’t have to be this way. This presentation is about how we can support children and young people to tell their story about key events in their life, to someone trained in active listening. The webinar will focus on the power of using images and art media as a hugely effective and psychologically protective way of collaborative sense-making. Case material will be used throughout to illustrate the healing power of, sandplay, art, emotion cards and big empathy drawings as communicative tools. The interventions discussed are all evidence-based, namely mentalisation-based treatment (MBT) (Peter Fonagy), emotion-focused counselling (EFC) (Leslie Greenberg), Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) (Dan Hughes), psychological formulation (British Psychological Society, Clinical Psychology Division).
