May 16-17 Using supervision effectively: Elise & Caroline
All counsellors and psychotherapists are professionally required to be in supervision in order to review their work and develop their awareness and skills. This weekend workshop will look at different modes of supervision, drawing on students own experiences as well as theoretical models, and will explore how counsellors can best prepare for their own work with supervisors.
May 18-21 Therapy in a Difficult Age: Liz & Caroline
We live in times of turbulence and anxiety. With increasing awareness of climate change and environmental degradation, and the many global trends towards nationalism, political extremism, conflict and corporate interests, people are impacted both consciously and consciously and may experience feelings such as fear, helplessness and dread. For a therapy world which has in the past focused on individual trauma and personal stories, how do we address these elements from the ‘bigger picture’ which infect the therapy room? How do these issues impact on us personally? What can we learn from our own responses?
May 22 Boundaries and leakage: Jeff & Caroline
what is meant by therapeutic boundaries in groups and individual work? How are boundaries created and maintained and what effect do different kinds of approach have? What happens when material from other sources leaks into the therapeutic process, and can this ever be helpful?
May 23-24 Addictive Process: Jeff & Caroline
Buddhist psychology seeing much human process as driven by addictive patterns of response. Grasping at ‘objects’ to create a semblance of stability in a world where we are not in control, we create the illusion of identity and permanence. This process of grasping is, for most people psychological and diverse, but for some people it becomes fixed on certain things – food, drugs, alcohol, gambling for example. In this weekend we will explore some of the underlying patterns of addiction as they manifest in human psychology everywhere and will look specifically at working with people who have addictive behaviours.
