Working with Offenders CPD ( 6 hours ) Counsellors, Counselling | The Listening Post C.I.C | Sunday, 12. July 2020

Offenders are often vilified and considered dangerous, however these offenders don’t often present in private practice, the victims or those who have offended but serve community sentences are the ones we meet.
Sentences can seem mysterious and sometimes frustrating for the unknowing. Sometimes the unknown causes a great deal of fear and questioning about the ability to work with certain groups. Sometimes however we can be a little over confident and say one thing but really mean another.
This day course will enable practitioners to look at their true feelings and assess what they are really comfortable with.
