If you’ve been under the impression that therapy with children and teenagers always needs to be serious business, be prepared to change your mind. In this workshop, we’ll explore Kids’ Skills, a systemic approach that offers a solution-focused, fun way of helping children and teens who suffer from behavioral problems, anxieties, and other psychosocial issues.
The key is the provocative notion that children don’t have any problems—they have incipient skills they need to improve with the support of those around them.
