The MWC course was developed for ADR practitioners interested in child inclusive practice. Meeting with Children – A Child-Centred Approach focuses on learning the process and procedures for child meetings. The course introduces play-based and expressive approaches to meeting with children. Participants learn about 6 different child and youth focused activities (four of which practitioners choose when meeting with a child over 2 one-hour meetings). As part of this course, practitioners study video examples of a 7, 9 and 14- year- old and later make use of the play-based materials to practice exercises as outlined in the MWC manual. The Child and Youth Concerns Scale (designed to assist the practitioner to gather and organize feedback to parents) is a main tool utilized during the training. Additionally, three other practitioner tools are presented and utilized. Participants follow the case of “Lilly and Kyle” from start to finish.
Lilly is a 7-year old girl whose parents are divorced. In this video series you will see Lilly engage in 4 different projective activities.
