Course Description

Young people are endlessly diagnosing themselves with ‘anxiety’ and ‘depression’. But what do we mean by anxiety and depression? How do we contain anxiety? How do we respond to existential anxiety? How do we understand depression? How do we support young people, many of whom are experiencing developmental crises rather than mental health issues?

This workshop will look at theory and practice. It will be an opportunity to share our experiences of work with young people who are ‘anxious’ or ‘depressed’, an opportunity to learn from past work and practise for future work.
