Speaker: Angelique Foran, Clinical Psychologist
Angelique has been registered as a psychologist for over 18 years. Her presentations have covered children's anxiety and, more recently, incorporating resources into evidence-based therapy. She has worked in a variety of settings including roles such as school psychologist for Education Queensland, member of an adult community mental health team and an adolescent outpatient mental health program. She has also worked in private practice for over 10 years along with providing clinical supervision to Masters Psychology students.
Currently, Angelique combines her private practice work in Adelaide with her on-line business Therapy Tools. Angelique’s special interest is in helping anxious children and teens and she has now helped hundreds of children and teens manage their fears and worries. As a clinical psychologist she assists children, adolescents and their families with a wide range of issues including sleep, depression, personal problems, grief and loss, behavioural challenges, coping with a parent with a mental illness and divorce and separation
If you have never incorporated technology into therapy or have only used a few apps this is the workshop for you. Angelique will be presenting a practical workshop that will have you walking away feeling confident and inspired.
You will leave with
Ø a list of apps to download,
Ø YouTube videos to show, and
Ø Websites to visit with young people.
We will cover preschool, primary and adolescent age groups.
Engaging children and young people with technology makes sense in the digital age. Using apps, websites and YouTube can provide you with greater access to evidence based therapy and help with homework compliance. Come along and learn about the benefits and potential pitfalls. You will be using the apps and checking out websites that you can start using in your own work.
Be ready for a presentation where you will find ideas to add to your therapy repertoire that children will love (and ask to do again!).
