Adolescence Now: Understanding and Supporting Today’s Adolescent

Saturday 22nd June 9.30am - 5:15pm

Westminster School and the Brent Centre are pleased to be holding a joint conference on Adolescence.

Using a psychoanalytic lens, the conference will seek to examine the themes, preoccupations, and clinical considerations of adolescence today. Presentations will explore themes such as race, the virtual world, the gendered body, fostering development in adolescents with autism and learning difficulties and assessing adolescent difficulties.

The conference will be of interest to therapists/counsellors working with young people, school therapists/counsellors, SENDCOs, Head Teachers, DSLs, or anyone responsible for supporting the wellbeing of young people who are trained in, or interested in, psychoanalytic models of therapy.
