Teachers, Psychologists, Counsellors, Youth Workers, Health workers..and other professionals who work with kids and teens
It takes a village to raise a child...
Do you work with kids or teens in a school, therapy room or other professional context? If the answer is yes - first of all - THANKYOU!
Professionals who care for young people are a special kind of person. I really believe they have the potential to change the world. When kids and teens have adults in their life who care for them, treat them respectfully and help them to solve problems and cope with life - they do significantly better than other more isolated kids.
Can we support you?
At Developing Minds our 14 child and adolescent psychologists have had a combined over 65 years experience in providing counselling and therapy services in clinics, schools, community centres and private practices - to many thousands of children and teens. We know both the joys and the challenges of this work. If you are a professional working with children and teens, we can support you in several different ways.
Hitting a brick wall with a child/teen you are working with? We can provide you with hourly supervision to help you feel more confident managing specific "tricky" children/teens or situations in the classroom/therapy room, or safely navigate professional issues (managing difficult ethical, professional or therapeutic situations). This supervision is provided either face to face at one of our South Australian based clinics, via skype or if it is supervision specifically regarding 5 to 12 year olds, you can also use our online "professionals only" question centre. Click here to find out more about our professional supervision.
Need a speaker or professional trainer? We provide workshops and training for you and your organisation, to help you know more about and feel more confident in managing the mental, emotional and behavioural well being of kids and teens. Click here to find out more about our training and seminars.
Just want brief new ideas or help in working more effectively with young people? Each fortnight we send an article to professionals on issues related to working with kids and teens in classrooms or therapy rooms.
