FPYN Presents: De-construct and Discuss Counselling Youth- Tues Oct 6

Whether you are a counsellor, social worker, youth and child worker, outreach worker or someone involved in the front lines, please join us for a monthly discussion group.

We will continue conversations from an anti-oppressive framework that we started earlier such as reflecting and discussing our youth engagement, community development, supportive services and clinical/therapeuticcounselling practices.  Hope you will join us to keep these conversations going.

Narrative Training Follow-Up Discussion

FPYN hosted a Narrative Training Workshop in April 2009.  This workshop was run by Susan Allen from CAMH and Susan is kindly facilitating a follow-up discussion for those who previously attended or for anyone interested in discussing Narrative Therapy techniques. A great opportunity to discuss how you have integrated these techniques into your daily work, ask more questions and revisit Narrative concepts.

Professional Poison: How Professionals Sabotage Social Movements, and Why Workers Should Lead Our Fight

 

Explains how professionals promote passivity and pessimism and why workers must lead the fight for a better world.

Excerpt:

"Professionals dominate social change organizations and also hold them back. Despite their good intentions, professionals are a conservative force.
