This training course deals with current issues affecting young people such as: isolation, homophobic bullying, specific learning difficulties, racism, violence, post-traumatic stress, young carers and substance use.
‘Mad’ ‘Bad’ or Misunderstood? Is a unique training course in that it offers an opportunity to reflect on and gain an understanding of how young people’s behaviour can act as communication while also hearing from the professionals and young people themselves through the DVD workshops presented throughout the training day.
Each Participant will take a copy of the DVD along with the training book away with them for future reference for themselves and the people they work with.
Any train or bus that comes into the city centre. We are on Hanover street not far from central station, Paradise Street bus station and Liverpool One.
