Friday Lunchtime Reading Group, 26 August 2016
Psychodrama with adolescent sexual offenders.

(Reference: Psychodrama with trauma survivors. Chapter 8, pp. 137 - 154) Jessica Kingsley Publishers. PA, USA. Editors: Peter Felix Kellerman and MK Hudgins, 2000).
Gavin says, "Adolescents serious offenders are a difficult group to assist using action methods in groups, it has been my understanding, and sexual offenders perhaps more so. This chapter from Psychodrama with Trauma Survivors is a valuable insight into how this work may be approached. I worked in Youth Justice for many years and I am aware of the approach that has been used in Victoria wih this group of offenders. This chapter also has good content to refresh our knowledge of psychodrama ideas more generally."
Gavin O'Loughlin will lead the August Lunchtime Reading Group in a discussion on working with adolescents.
