A Confidential Space
The latest DVD, "A Confidential Space - Ethical Considerations when Counselling Children and Young People" is now on the market and it looks as if it's going to be well received. The DVD features an interview with Peter Jenkins (by Judith Mulcahy) on the issues relating to confidentiality in therapeutic work with children and young people. This is a complex topic, but Peter conveys some key messages about the value of this counselling with force and clarity. The interview covers a broad range of issues which will be of direct value to practitioners in this challenging field, whether as therapists, trainers, lecturers, managers or supervisors. Peter provides a strong case for building and maintaining high levels of confidentiality in therapeutic work with children and young people, based on research findings and on recent case law.
The DVD is available from our online shop but, as ever, students at the University of Wales, Newport, will be able to take out a copy from the library.
