Judith is a Senior Lecturer in Counselling at the University of Wales, Newport, running the MA in Counselling Children and Young People programme there and taking a strategic lead for the Schools Counselling Project in Newport. The hour long interview explores many of the complexities of working with children and young people, and Peter conveys some key messages about the value of this counselling with force and clarity. The interview covers a broad range of issues which will be of direct value to practitioners in this challenging field, whether as therapists, trainers, lecturers, managers or supervisors.
Peter provides a strong case for building and maintaining high levels of confidentiality in therapeutic work with children and young people, based on research findings and on recent case law. The DVD also includes discussion of three realistic case examples, provided by Blanka Hubena, which are drawn from counseling practice. The cases relate to the following areas: Assessing risk and making referrals to mental health services, The rights of children and young people to confidentiality and privacy and Parents' rights to access confidential school counselling records. The accompanying booklet also includes detailed background discussion of the theory and of the legal issues referred to in the interview, with full references and sources of further information. Below you'll find a three minute clip from the dvd.
