Youth in Mind offer a variety of different therapeutic courses for children and young people. The courses we offer can vary depending on where you access. When you attend a drop-in appointment, your practitioner will let you know which courses are available at that hub.

Each course is made up of one 60 minute session per week for 4 weeks, and each aims to help you learn about different mental health issues by discussing and sharing experiences within a group of up to 8 young people.

 

Like our Early Intervention service, we class our therapeutic courses as “guided self-help”, which means that all young people who attend have a responsibility to try new tools and techniques in between sessions. Young people who attend courses also have the responsibility to contribute to group discussions and activities in a productive way, which helps create a therapeutic environment in which we all learn and grow from the experiences of each other.

 

We offer both junior and senior group courses to ensure that young people are working with others their own age.

 

Please see below for details of our courses:

Anger Course

Our group courses consist of one 60-minute session a week for 4 weeks. The groups have capacity for up to 8 young people with one practitioner. We offer both junior and senior group courses to ensure that young people are working with others their own age.

 

In this course you will explore the triggers, symptoms and coping strategies to help manage your feelings of anger in an effective and productive way through activities and discussion. Emphasis is put on sharing experiences and exploring alternatives together in a non-judgemental environment where we can learn and reflect with the help of a practitioner.

 

The group courses are classed as ‘guided self-help’ services, so commitment from young people to attempting strategies and helping themselves outside of the sessions (in addition to contributing to the group discussions and activities in a productive way) is required.
