The Conference provides participants the opportunity to:

  • hear national & local speakers
  • build networks
  • share information & ideas
  • discover root causes
  • find solutions
  • engage a modern approach to working with men in our local community

Primer for one Session:
Shame, blame and nothing to gain? Forming therapeutic partnerships with young men and adolescents as involuntary clients.

by Russ Pratt, DPsych, Forensic Psychologist, Director, Prime Forensic Psychology

Working with adolescent males and young men when they are involuntary clients can present challenges for services and therapists alike. Getting the client in the room is one thing, then doing anything with them is sometimes another.

How can we give ourselves the best chance of meaningful connection with our young male clients, and thus provide the client with the opportunity to do something meaningful during their time with us (and who should decide what is meaningful anyway?).

In this one-hour session, the presenter will provide some strategies and ideas that take into account the theory of what we know about young males, and what the presenter has learnt in over 20 years of working with young men in involuntary settings (for example youth in residential settings, young people who sexually abuse others, youth with impulse control issues). Practice stories, as well as practice strategies will be presented and discussed. Audience input and participation is not just welcomed, but is expected!
