Conceptualising, Applying & Integrating Systemic Therapy in Child Sexual Abuse : Workshop with Diane Hanly

24th November 2017

 

Family Therapy understands the benefits of therapeutically supported dialogue amongst family members when challenging issues and difficulties need to be discussed. Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) might be considered one of the most challenging, distressing and direction-changing issues that a family has to contend with. In the Irish context the majority of cases of alleged sexual abuse do not go to court therefore there is significantly more pressure on social and therapeutic services to address the needs of the young people and their families.  Different reactions and coping mechanisms mean that services privilege meeting with children, siblings and parents separately in order to address their competing needs.  CSA can also be an evocative and difficult area .  For further details on this workshop and booking form, please click on link below.
