Therapy Ideas in Practice Series

Brought to you by Robert Jenkinson, this series of online courses is based on 1 day workshops, designed to give counsellors practical way of working with clients, and filmed for those who are unable to attend live. As everyone cannot attend the live events, we have turned these recorded workshops into a series of online courses available to everyone. Robert comments that a large proportion of his clients who are receiving treatment as sexual abuse survivors, will at some stage disclose that they too have offended against others. For this reason he believes that to offer effective therapy for survivors it is necessary also to understand the dynamics of offending. Accordingly, 'Working with Sexual Abuse' is a workshop created in two parts, and both parts are co-requisite in order to receive a certificate.

Learn more about what you will learn in part one of 'Working with Sexual Abuse' and about Robert Jenkinson below.
