In this training we will focus on the phenomenon of Failure to Launch which is experienced during late adolescence. As young people move gradually towards the next stage of Emerging Adulthood (approximately 18-25 years) they can present with classical adolescent behaviour. Their behaviour and attitude indicate that they are failing to take themselves seriously in the world and /or are hindered by overwhelming levels of shame and breakdown. This workshop will offer an in-depth, understanding of how to support these young adults gain insight and transcend the complications which may thwart their developmental path

This workshop is suitable for psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists and other professionals working with approximately 18-25 year olds.                                                                                               There is no restriction for trainees/pre-accredited  professionals
