Selective Mutism Workshop 2018 : 8-9 March 2018 (Thu to Fri)
Venue : Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups Building (Quarry Bay MTR Exit C)
This intensive two-day workshop aims to prepare therapists to understand and effectively treat children and teens suffering from Selective Mutism (SM). Evidence-based treatment protocols will be presented. The treatment is based largely on cognitive behavioral premises and techniques, and has been proven to be effective in treating thousands of children with SM both in research and in the clinical setting.
Upon successful completion, participants will receive the treatment manual and two other treatment protocols, which provide clear steps to implement the treatment. A certificate for completion and eligibility to use the manual will also be awarded. Following the course, there will be the option of receiving continuous supervision for hands-on treatment of SM.
