Dr Louise Hayes is thrilled to offer this workshop after years of building on the DNA-V model, a developmentally solid Acceptance and Commitment Therapy approach to working with young people. The DNA-V model allows you to target specific life issues that young people face — for example, anxiety, depression, low self confidence and bullying. It is now being used in schools, clinics and everywhere that young people seek help.
In this workshop, you will learn how to use the model DNA-V easily and effectively. Louise will get straight into working with young people with a focus on practical applications. Louise will demonstrate how to use the model to build your skills with young people in a workshop that is suitable for all professionals who work with young people, including psychologists, counsellors, social workers and teachers, using techniques that work individually with young people in therapy, and scale this up to groups in classrooms.
The workshop is fun, creative and will focus on teaching you how to be experiential with young people, using a full range of techniques that go beyond talking at them, to make your sessions alive and engaging.
Comes with a FREE copy of her new book, Your Life, Your Way: ACT Skills to help teens manage emotions & build resilience!

• How to help young people build strong relationships,
