A systemic approach to family relationships and the positive management of children’s behaviour
Peter Brown works as a Family Therapist in Greenwich Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, South London. He originally trained as a social worker before re-training as a family therapist.
He has an interest in promoting children’s voices in therapy and has written papers for The Psychotherapist and Context magazine about the use of glove puppets to help capture the interest of children. He also coordinated a project in 2010 which led to a BBC documentary showing how family therapy works with families. His latest project has been co-editing an edition of Context magazine, with the theme ‘tools & techniques for working with children’ (June 2016). He also runs and supervises parenting courses in CAMHS. These includes the Non Violent Resistance course which has a proven track record for improving outcomes for children and young people with serious behaviour issues. He is a member of the Association for Family Therapy & Systemic Practice and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. He also maintains a small private practice in South London.
