“Imagine, Create, Belong”: a new intervention for adolescents with social difficulties (2 Day Workshop) 23-24 Jan 2020

January 23, 2020 @ 9:00 am - January 24, 2020 @ 4:30 pm


Research using Learn to Play Therapy has been extended to work with adolescents who experience social difficulties. This workshop introduces the play assessment for young people called the Animated Movie Test. This is an age appropriate assessment suitable for young people aged 8 – 15 years. The new intervention called Imagine, Create, Belong will also be explained. This new 8 week intervention for young people who are neurodiverse who attend mainstream high schools has been trialled in two research studies and found to increase young people’s self-insight into their social ability, maintain their flexible thinking and increase their narrative thinking. This results in more competence in their social ability. The manual also includes 16 Sessions for adolescents who attend special school and have challenging developmental issues.

This workshop would be valuable for those working with young adolescents who have social difficulties including social workers, occupational therapists, specialist teachers of young adolescents, psychologists and play therapists.
