Training

Welcome to Fegans Training. Our informative and affordable training benefits a range of professionals that support families and young children, including counsellors, teachers, social workers, refuge works, foster and adoption parents, and family support  workers. Occasionally, specific topics or approaches may mean that the training is suitable for delegates working within a therapeutic environment.

Our ‘Working with Children’ course welcomes counsellors who have trained in different modalities and will encourage participants to share their own experience and theoretical bias, methodologies and insights. The content tends towards integrative,person-centred and psychodynamic principles; however there is no expectation of prior knowledge or understanding of any one of these modalities.

WORKSHOP:
Christiane Sanderson: Working with survivors of domestic abuse; from coercive control through to physical and sexual violence

 


Friday 9th March, 9.30am-4.30pm
COURSE INFORMATION

This workshop will increase our understanding of Domestic Abuse (DA), and its impact and long term effects on survivors. It will also help us understand how, as practitioners, we can work confidently and effectively, with a range of therapeutic skills, using the principles of safe trauma therapy, psychoeducation and stabilisation. Conceptualising DA within the complex trauma framework, we consider the processing of the DA narrative and the facilitation of post traumatic growth. We also look at the importance of the therapeutic relationship in restoring relational worth, mitigating the dehumanising effects of DA and restoring autonomy and self-agency.


REF code: DSM18

Cost: Early bird £75 (£85 after 7th February)

WORKSHOP:
Chris Brown: Working with diversity

 


Friday 22nd June, 9.30am-4.30pm
COURSE INFORMATION

This workshop will take you from ‘talking the talk of equality’ to ‘walking the walk of equality’. Sometimes this intrapersonal and interpersonal work can painful. Chris facilitates a respectful learning environment in which counsellors can be open to exploring honest trans-diversity, transcultural and trans-racial communication. Such an environment acknowledges the differences and similarities between people and provides the equality of opportunity to own, explore and then potentially minimise the impact the roles of ‘oppressed’ and ‘oppressor’ society has imposed upon us as groups and individuals; that we may better understand ourselves and our clients. This training day will benefit a variety of therapeutic and interpersonal disciplines.

Testimonials

An excellent mix of theory, practice, interaction, and

real life examples which has led to me feeling well equipped to launch out and work in a child-led way.

Also excellent and very detailed notes were provided.

After four training days with Fegans, I feel like I

really know what I’m getting. They were really good days,

with very strong teaching. Thank you.

The combination of theory and opportunity to experience role play and practice for me was very helpful.

Open discussion within the group and time to process was also really helpful. There was plenty of time and

it was not rushed.
