Summary:

As Selekman (1997) noted, it is rare to hear stories of botched treatment as workshops or to read about therapeutic failures. We speak of our grand interventions, we write of our magical moments. But the truth is that therapy particularly with children and adolescents, is rarely a tidy affair. Talking to our colleagues one theme often submerge; boys and therapy make an odd and uneasy couple. This poor fit can perpetuate treatment failure and lead to therapists
making erroneous conclusions about boys, particularly that they are resistant, unemotional and unmotivated to change.

 

Certain situations will be looked at in depth, such as working with angry and aggressive boys, body-based treatment approaches for young boys diagnosed with ADHD, addressing self-regulation and relationship issues in boys with sexual behavioural difficulties, and attachment therapy approaches in strengthening attachments between fathers and sons to reduce or prevent risky behaviours.


During this workshop we will specifically look at creative approaches. Different therapeutic interventions will be presented to the delegates which will be practiced during the workshop.

Summary:

Therapists can play a broad role in supporting children and youth with social skills deficits and their families. It is beneficial to work with a therapist that has an understanding of the characteristics and gifts of children struggling on a social level. There are different reasons why children may have difficulty with social interaction. They may be diagnosed with a condition like Asperger's Syndrome, or their struggles may be due to temperament. Case examples will be used to help the delegates understand how social skills problems present themselves during daily interaction, as well as understand the impact on the general functioning of the child and family.

Children with social challenges usually find it difficult to master skills that are necessary for successful interaction by observing typically developing peers in the classroom or other environments. More direct instructions on how to socially interact is needed in order for them to learn these abstract skills.

The aim of this workshop is to present different practical tools to help the child with social difficulties. The delegates will get the opportunity to practice some of the tools during the training to be able to use it effectively in practice. Role play will also be used to assist the delegates in the practical facilitation of the different techniques.
