Noel Giblett is a Clinical Social Worker with 30 years as a relationship counsellor and 40 years of Marriage. His book titled ‘Marriage is for Grown Ups’ is for those Relationships and Marriages that are strongly committed and into enriching their relationships. Noel has provided the reader with a mix of his professional experience with personal insights and wisdom. There are some very interesting chapter titles such as ‘Men are from Earth, Women are from Earth,’ a play on ‘Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus’.
The title of the book portrays Marriage as two people who are equal and bring with them their perfections and imperfections. At the same time, he recognises gender differences as in the chapter on ‘Sex and other mysteries’ (another great title). Noel also brings a systemic and developmental perspective as he includes the change in the relationship with the birth of children, teenage years and extended family that all influence and impact the marital journey. It is an excellent self-help book and the reflecting questions at the end of chapters may be beneficial for professionals to utilise in their practice.

Maurizio Andolf: “Anorexia, Bulimia & Obesity: Understanding the Body Language of Problematic Adolescents”
ONE-DAY WORKSHOP (20 October 2018)
The William Street Family Therapy Centre is proud to offer this one-day Workshop by a world-famous Master Family Therapist & Master Teacher:
In this workshop, Maurizio Andolfi will demonstrate how to use a multigenerational-systemic approach in treating severe eating disorders in adolescents. Instead of focusing on food issues and correcting wrong eating habits, Andolfi’s approach aims to understand the body language of frail adolescents. They generally present with a distorted self-image, low self-esteem and fear of the outside world. At the same time, their dysfunctional and self-destructive behaviour can be seen as a form of extreme adolescent rebelliousness and an exasperated search for love and care.
Family therapy is the best treatment modality to restore positive connections and harmony within distressed families and to help problematic adolescents grow without fear of emotional refusal inside and outside the home and of peer group exclusion. Inviting the family of origin allows us to work on long term traumas and losses, and inviting adolescent friends in special session increases peer support. This is a workshop not to be missed!!

Participants will have the opportunity to practice and observe deep joining and challenging
