To work with troubled and traumatized adolescents, it’s crucial for therapists to first foster their own capacity for self-awareness and self-regulation. It’s not easy, especially when our young clients’ extreme reactions-ranging from angry arousal to frozen shutting down-can trigger our own sense of helplessness, failure, dissociation, and rejection. In this workshop, you’ll discover how to get unhooked from this nonfunctional cycle by exploring:
Specific adolescent attachment styles that interact with or trigger our own
How to apply the React, Reflect, and Respond model to best help your clients
The Four M’s-mirroring, mentalizing, mindfulness, and modulation-to increase connection and mood regulation
How to use attunement - including strategies of validation, self-disclosure, and the compassionate sharing of adult feelings and opinions-to bring traumatized teens back into relationships with themselves and you
