Meeting the challenges of undertaking therapeutic work in a school setting
Ros will talk about her experience as a school counsellor, and of working psychodynamically with young people in a Catholic secondary school. She will focus primarily on the tensions which exist within the institution, and on her efforts to provide, and maintain, a good enough therapeutic space in which to enable the counselling relationship to develop.
