(London) Guided imagery and visualisation

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Tuesday, 16 January 2018 @ 09:30 to Tuesday, 16 January 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A one-day course with: Sue Saunders Strong emotions focus and lock attention – keeping people trapped in problem behaviours. Therapeutic change cannot happen until the emotional arousal is reduced. This is why healthcare professionals need to know how to induce the relaxation response in patients. Guided imagery and visualisation not only reduce emotional arousal quickly but can be used to reframe life circumstances through metaphor and to rehearse in the imagination any required changed behaviours and/or feelings. Among other things, guided imagery is an essential skill required for removing phobias, curing PTSD, lifting depression and raising self-confidence. When you become confident in using these skills, you can begin to bring patients out of the emotionally-driven trance states of a wide range of conditions such as anxiety disorders, addiction, anger, stress overload, depression and chronic pain. That is why guided imagery is one of the most powerful psychotherapeutic tools known. This course is suitable for anyone interested in gaining these invaluable skills but those involved in mental and physical healthcare in particular would benefit from attending. The information and skills taught are extremely useful for dealing with: Stress; addictions; agoraphobia; allergies; anorexia; anger; asthma; bed wetting; blood pressure; bulimia; depression; lack of confidence; chronic pain; eczema; frustration; guilt; grief; hay fever; inhibition; insomnia; irritable bowel (IBS); relationship/marital difficulties; migraine; nightmares; obsessions (OCD); pain control; panic attacks; phobias (all kinds); sexual difficulties (impotence, premature ejaculation and vaginismus); shyness; skin disorders and trauma (PTSD); flashbacks; ulcers; warts and worrying. You can also control blood pressure, stimulate the immune system, promote healing of damaged skin tissue and bones and give birth easier using guided imagery and visualisation.

(London) The Fast Trauma (PTSD) and Phobia Cure

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 17 January 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 17 January 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A two-day master course with tutor: Sue Saunders This intense two-day training proceeds through a blend of talks, live demonstrations, skill-developing exercises, practice sessions (under careful guidance) and deconstruction of a filmed example of the technique being used with a severely traumatised young woman. There is also plenty of opportunity for networking and discussion during the breaks. Even the most severe phobic and post-traumatic stress (PTSD) symptoms can be quickly and safely treated with the precisely targeted skills of the refined version of the rewind technique taught on this two-day course. This refined version of the rewind technique is the most reliably successful psychological treatment available for removing even the severest phobias and detraumatising people – it is easy to learn and one of the most important skills you need when working with any anxiety disorder. Using it you can, in often as little as one or two sessions, detraumatise bad memories, stop flashbacks, cure phobias, banish nightmares and reduce anxiety so you can help the victims of abuse, rape, violence, car accidents, fire, terrorism and panic attacks, heart attacks and other life-threatening experiences. It is also invaluable for helping people with phobias, those who have suffered persistent physical or sexual abuse, and people with OCD. Some people suffering from depression have experienced a traumatic experience which needs to be detraumatised in order for them to move on with their lives. The technique has the added benefit of being non-intrusive – there is no need for individuals to go into the details of the events which have traumatised them with the therapist. Those who have already done this course have brought relief to thousands.

Description:
Have you worked with an individual or couple for whom yearning and pining for love, either lost or never found is a significant part of the work? What meaning does an individual’s preoccupation with a search for a soulmate have for their therapy? What are the clinical and technical issues for the therapist? What theoretical understanding can we use to help understand the work? Using a variety of learning styles including video work, case discussion, theoretical thinking participants will explore: How cases with a preoccupation with a search for the beloved may present in a clinical setting. What theoretical understanding can we use to understand this/help us to explore meaning with the client? How do we work with this material in the room? What clinical and technical impact might there be on the therapy as these relationships develop, or flounder? How gender, culture, sexuality and other difference may impact on the transference and counter transferences in the therapy. There will be an opportunity for the group to apply the learning to their own casework.

(Bristol) How to Control Chronic Anxiety - the practical skills you need

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 24 January 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 24 January 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A NEW one-day course with tutor: Denise Winn. Anxiety blights the lives of increasingly large numbers of people. It may initially be focused on realistic concerns – such as financial difficulties, health, job insecurity or unemployment, relationship problems (particularly complex in blended families) and fears about the future in an increasingly uncertain world – but then spiral out of control. Or it may have no clear cause and manifests as an ever-present feeling of being ‘wired’, tense or vulnerable, very often accompanied by out-of-control thoughts. Left unaddressed, over-anxiety can badly affect sleep and physical, as well as mental, health. This highly practical course focuses on the key information and practical skills you need to be able to lower anxiety levels and you will have many opportunities to practise the new skills and techniques yourself. It concentrates on generalised anxiety (including generalised anxiety disorder – GAD), social anxiety and panic attacks. 10% OFF when you book How to Control Chronic Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - understanding OCD and how best to treat it courses together - Call 01323 811690 for more information.

(Bristol) Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - understanding OCD and how best to treat it

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Thursday, 25 January 2018 @ 09:30 to Thursday, 25 January 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A NEW one-day course with tutor: Miriam Chachamu. Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is distressing not just for those suffering from OCD but also for family members and friends. Contrary to the popular view of OCD as being harmless over-cleanliness or simply checking things over and over again, OCD sufferers experience a high level of anxiety – and the condition can damage their relationships, social and work lives, and physical health. Many sufferers are ashamed of their problem and hide it. Sometimes therapists fail to recognise the rarer forms of OCD and therefore fail to offer effective treatment. And many people with milder forms of OCD do not realise that they can be helped, and do not seek help until their condition becomes much more severe. This workshop offers an in-depth look at OCD in all its guises and focuses on practical and effective methods of treatment – OCD recovery is possible in most cases. The day is interactive and includes demonstration videos of therapy sessions, short video clips, in-depth discussions and case studies. This course complements our 1-day course: How to Control Severe Anxiety - the practical skills you need: http://www.humangivenscollege.com/courses/severe-anxiety.html 10% OFF when you book Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - understanding OCD and how best to treat it and How to Control Chronic Anxiety courses together - Call 01323 811690 for more information.

Therapy Marathon (9 hours)

Organisation: The Link Centre
First date and time: From Friday, 26 January 2018 @ 18:00 to Friday, 26 January 2018 @ 21:00

Description:
Participating in a therapy marathon can be seen as a kind of brief encounter. As we meet with the group, we come into contact with others, and in so doing, we come into contact with ourselves again. The time-limited nature of the frame can give rise to intense experiences of self and others, which may be supportive and nourishing, or challenging and provocative. As the group moves through its lifespan there is great potential for interaction, exploration, reflection and learning. We can ask: “What do I/we do, between saying Hello and saying Goodbye?” We can view the experience as a representation of life itself; asking ourselves how we use it, and whether we make healthy or unhealthy decisions within its time-frame. The format will be largely organic, allowing for the participation of all and flexibility of focus. Group members will be invited simply to engage, thoughtfully and authentically, with the flow. In amongst this, we will take time to consider how we make sense of things using a TA framework, and deepen our understanding in this way also. Therapist: Ian Argent MSc (TA Psychotherapy), CTA (P), Dip. Clinical Supervision Ian is a UKCP registered psychotherapist, practicing privately in Colchester (Essex) and Central London. He has worked in the field of palliative/end-of-life care, supporting patients and families as they face death. He has also worked at a specialist psychosexual clinic within an NHS Trust, helping people with difficulties of sex and intimacy. He is a supervisor to counsellors and psychotherapists from within and outside the TA tradition. Ian is Chair of UKATA’s Ethics & Professional Practice Committee, and is a UKCP ‘rep’ for UKATA. He sits on the Steering Committee (Executive) of the HIPC College of UKCP, helping to run the College’s professional and regulatory functions.

(London) Who Am I Being When I Am Being Here With You?

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
First date and time: From Saturday, 27 January 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 27 January 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
The Workshop: Existential therapy proposes a particular set of philosophical ideas that are radically different to most espoused by other Western forms of psychotherapy. What is probably the most critical of these is the principle of relatedness or inter-relation which is so pivotal to the whole rationale of existential thought in general and existential therapy in particular that its presence resonates throughout every point and argument presented by the approach. Relatedness argues that we cannot understand nor make sense of human beings - our selves included - on their own or in isolation, but always and only in and through their inter-relational context. Relatedness directs the existential therapist toward such questions as: What is it like for you, the client, to be as you are being in my presence? What is it like for me, the therapist, to be as I am being in the presence of this other? Such questions, in turn, focus upon a recurring challenge for both client and therapist: "who I am being when I am being here with this other?" In doing so, they provoke an immediacy and uniqueness to each therapeutic encounter. This seminar provides participants with the opportunity to explore the impact and implications of practising existential therapy from standpoints that are attuned to relatedness. It will focus on the therapists' interactions with their clients and will argue that different emphases and points of focus can be identified and contrasted with one another as the therapeutic encounter proceeds from its beginning to its ending. It is presented by one of the foremost teachers in and practitioners of the approach and is derived from his latest textbook Practising Existential Psychotherapy: The Relational World, 2nd edition (Sage, 2015). Format: Participants will learn through lecture, discussion, experiential exercises, and exploration of case material that they bring to the seminars. The Trainer: Professor Ernesto Spinelli has gained an international reputation as one of the leading contemporary trainers and theorists of existential therapy and, more recently, the related arenas of coaching and conflict mediation. He is a Fellow of both the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a UKCP registered existential psychotherapist and an APECS accredited executive coach and coaching supervisor. In 1999, Ernesto was awarded a Personal Chair as Professor of psychotherapy, counselling and counselling psychology and in 2000 was awarded the a BPS Division of Counselling Psychology Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Advancement of the Profession. Ernesto is Director of ES Associates, an organisation dedicated to the advancement of psychotherapy, coaching, and supervision through specialist seminars and training programmes. His most recent book, Practising Existential Psychotherapy: The Relational World 2nd ed (Sage, 2015) has been widely praised as a major contribution to the advancement of existential theory and practice. His previous books include: The Interpreted World: an introduction to phenomenological psychology, 2nd ed (Sage, 2005); Demystifying Therapy (PCCS, 2006); Tales of Un-knowing (PCCS, 2006); and The Mirror and The Hammer: challenging therapeutic orthodoxies (Sage, 2001).

(Edinburgh) Couples therapy - A Practical Masterclass

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 31 January 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 31 January 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A one-day counselling course with tutor: Véronique Chown or Jennifer Broadley. Every relationship has its ups and downs, but sometimes these become too difficult for a couple to manage on their own. Véronique Chown's one-day couples counselling course draws on pioneering research that reveals what makes relationships flourish and she shares the practical guidelines and skills she has acquired over many years of successfully helping couples using the human givens approach to build and maintain supportive and mutually rewarding relationships. Presented without psychobabble, and making good use of insightful case histories, Véronique demystifies an area of counselling that many find daunting or fear is complicated. The day covers: the most effective ways to help and build rapport with couples in conflicted relationships; the sex differences in processing emotions; non-blame talking styles; the long-term impact of parenting; past conditioning, including psychological traumas, that can give clues about why difficulties arose; and what we can learn from the way successful couples facilitate mutual needs satisfaction. Please note: Relationship issues are one of the most common causes of emotional distress and often the reason people seek help – a solid understanding of why difficulties arise and what can be done about them is extremely useful therefore for all caring professionals – even those not specifically working with couples.

(Edinburgh) Building a Thriving Therapy Practice

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Thursday, 1 February 2018 @ 09:30 to Thursday, 1 February 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A NEW one-day course with tutor: Jennifer Broadley. Great therapy has never been so in demand. Having your style of counselling (whether Human Givens or any other) stand out, is about knowing how quickly and effectively you can guide a client through their changes to reach where they want to be. And then using that story (throughout all of your marketing) to encourage others to contact you to get the same results. Jennifer Broadley has been a qualified and practicing Human Givens Therapist for nearly 5 years. She has been in business for herself for over 15 years and brings the ups and downs of that – both personal and professional stories – to life in this practical and motivating day. Jennifer built her business, Healthy Chat, from no clients to full practice within 2 years. She has tried-and-tested marketing strategies and will share with you the ones that have worked for her and the ones that haven’t (saving you from spending money unnecessarily). She is fully transparent with her client numbers, systems and finances so that you will leave the course clear about whether a full-time or part-time therapy practice is for you.

(Wimbledon) One Day Conference - Adoption & Attachment

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
First date and time: From Saturday, 3 February 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 3 February 2018 @ 16:30

Description:
Dr Graham Music,Linda Cundy UKCP, BACP,Karen Carberry, MSc, Dip.Psych, Jenny Riddell UKCP, BACP Saturday 3rd February 2018 – 10:00am- 4:30pm St Marks Church, St Marks Place, Wimbledon, SW19 7ND Conference cost: £130 / 10% discount for Wimbledon Guild counsellors. Tea & biscuits provided. Please confirm your full name for your CPD certificate if it differs from the name on your PayPal account to: counsellingtraining@wimbledonguild.co.uk The day’s programme presentations: Black, Multi-racial and Trans-racial Adoptive Families: A journey of hope: Karen Carberry All families have a desire for a happy and contented family life, and although there are many hurdles and paths to navigate for adoptive families, Black, Multi-racial and Trans-racially adoptive families are no exception in their bi-cultural quest. Areas to be covered within this talk will include the adoption triangle; the idealised child exercise; attachment cycle; adaptive grieving; working with the adoptive and cultural/racial identity and the journey of hope. This strategy of hope has been used in her work as a family therapist in an inpatient Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service; as an Associate Partner in SLACCS, an Adoption Support Agency; Manager of Family Centres and a Child Contact Centre; and also a school counsellor. Couples and adoption: Jenny Riddell This presentation will explore how adoption comes into therapeutic work with couples, often not as the presenting problem but emerging during an ongoing therapy. Drawing on clinical examples from casework as well as personal stories from other settings, such as teaching, we will explore how couples and therapist manage the challenges. These include the journey through selection and placement of a child with the couple. Adaptations to a disappeared world: Graham Music This talk looks at how adopted children have often adapted to extremely traumatising and neglectful early environments. When they arrive in adoptive placements they rarely experience adopters for what they are, as benign or potentially supportive. This then gives rise to a 'double deprivation' as they cannot make use of the potentially good relationships that are on offer. This talk will examine these issues using the perspectives of attachment theory, neurobiology and psychoanalysis, using clinical fragments, interviews with young people and carers and video clips. Blood and Water: Attachment, Adoption, Identity and Belonging: Linda Cundy Adoption isn’t always the presenting issue in therapy but may emerge as a thread in the client’s narrative. The capacity to tell a coherent story of one’s life and the forces that shaped it is a hallmark of secure attachment, but adoption can rob individuals of meaningful information about themselves. This talk will explore some of the issues that emerge in therapy for clients whose lives have been touched by adoption, including the search for birth fathers and a mother’s relationships with her “natural” and adopted children. Speakers Graham Music Graham Music is Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist at the Tavistock and Portman Clinics and an adult psychotherapist in private practice. His publications include Nurturing Natures 2017, Attachment and Children's Emotional, Sociocultural and Brain Development (2011), Affect and Emotion (2001), and The Good Life: Wellbeing and the new science of altruism, selfishness and Immorality (2014). He has a particular interest in exploring the interface between developmental findings, clinical work and their social implications. Formerly Associate Clinical Director of the Tavistock's child and family department, he has worked therapeutically with maltreated children for over two decades, has managed a range of services concerned with the aftermath of child maltreatment and neglect and organised many community based psychotherapy services Graham currently works clinically at the Portman clinic with forensic cases and he also teaches, lectures and supervises on the Tavistock Child Psychotherapy course, and other trainings in Britain and abroad. Linda Cundy Linda Cundy is an attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer in private practice. She has run courses on attachment at the Wimbledon Guild for sixteen years, and is lead tutor for the Post Graduate Diploma in Attachment-Based Therapy. She has taught at a number of psychotherapy organisations. A book, Love in the Age of the Internet: Attachment in the Digital Era was written / edited by Linda and published by Karnac in 2015. She is also editor of the Wimbledon Guild conference monographs, Anxiously Attached: Understanding and Working with Preoccupied Attachment (Karnac, 2017), and Attachment and the Defence against Intimacy: Understanding and Working with Avoidant Attachment, Self-Hatred, and Shame (Karnac 2018, in press).

(London) Jeremy Holmes: Attachment for 21st Century Therapists

Organisation: The Minster Centre
First date and time: From Tuesday, 13 February 2018 @ 18:00 to Tuesday, 13 February 2018 @ 20:00

Description:
How biobehavioural synchrony, embodied mentalising, and predictive coding help us understand what therapists do (and don’t do). The integrative framework of contemporary attachment theory provides a meta-perspective that transcends therapists' model-allegiance. In this talk I outline aspects of affective neuroscience with its evidence-based underpinning. Within the rubric of therapeutic relationship, explanatory language, and change promotion I'll try to show how biobehavioural synchrony, embodied mentalising and Friston’s free energy/surprise model can illuminate the everyday work of psychotherapists, and even improve outcomes!

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Thursday, 22 February 2018 @ 09:30 to Thursday, 22 February 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A NEW one-day course with tutor: Miriam Chachamu. Many OCD sufferers are ashamed of their problem and hide it. Sometimes therapists fail to recognise the rarer forms of OCD and therefore fail to offer effective treatment. And many people with milder forms of OCD do not realise that they can be helped, and do not seek help until their condition becomes much more severe. This workshop offers an in-depth look at OCD in all its guises and focuses on practical and effective methods of treatment – OCD recovery is possible in most cases. The day is interactive and includes demonstration videos of therapy sessions, short video clips, in-depth discussions and case studies. 10% OFF when you book Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - understanding OCD and how best to treat it and How to Control Chronic Anxiety courses together - Call 01323 811690 for more information.

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Friday, 23 February 2018 @ 09:30 to Friday, 23 February 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
Tutor Richard Brook brings a practical and humorous approach to the bewildering array of models currently directed at front-line workers. The programme is varied and intensive, yet lively with a strong focus on gaining skills. It clarifies what healthy teenage development looks like, why things can go wrong and the best ways to help young people overcome obstacles and begin to create lives for themselves that work well. Richard also shows how, by working with the 'givens' of human nature, and ensuring that sound knowledge of how people really function is applied intelligently to teenagers, you can speed up progress and bring them real benefits. At the end of the day you will find yourself more empowered to respond effectively to each individual’s needs, temperament and learning style, whilst avoiding the emotional pitfalls of working in stressful situations.

We are all becoming more aware that gender diversity is not limited to a binary definition of male and female. Gender is much more complicated. In our current culture there is more and more fluidity around gender and yet at the same time we are being faced with prejudice and fear. This workshop is an opportunity to explore the area of gender diversity, including our own relationships to gender, in a safe and supportive environment. What does ‘gender diversity’ mean? How comfortable are you with your own gender and that of your clients? Do you feel comfortable and knowledgeable about working with clients who identify as gender diverse? How do you work with the fear and threat that people in this community are feeling at the moment? What is the role of shame?

Organisation: INTEGRA CPD
First date and time: From Saturday, 24 February 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 24 February 2018 @ 16:30

Description:
The rise of body-oriented approaches to psychotherapy has seen the discipline shift from being the kooky poor relation of psychoanalysis in the 1970s and 1980s to a vital component in the therapeutic understanding of all therapists over the course of the last 20 years or so. An increased understanding and appreciation of neuroscience alongside the development of effective approaches to treating trauma have shown that being able to work effectively with embodied presentations and communications will increase our effectiveness as therapists and offer greater and safer choices for our clients and patients, particularly for those who are struggling with traumatic experiences or somatic symptoms. In this one-day conference with three leading experts in the field of body-mind psychotherapy - Margaret Landale, Ewa Robertson, and Michael Soth - we will explore ways in which to attune to the embodied presence of both ourselves and our clients and how to facilitate body-mind communication and dialogue. There will be particular attention paid in our final presentation of the day to the skills required by non-body psychotherapists who might wish to respond to embodied moments that occur in the process of talking therapy. A Q&A Panel Discussion will round off the day.

(London) The Mind-Body Connection: How to help people improve their mental and physical health

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 28 February 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 28 February 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A one-day course with tutor: Dr Andrew Morrice. Dr Andrew Morrice's fascinating day explores the many reasons for this (for instance, much of our collective thinking and advice about health is contradictory and distorted by vested interests and preconception) – and what can be done about them. Human givens therapy is a truly bio-psycho-social model of emotional and mental wellbeing, which draws much of its strength from brain-science, but there is more – there are also physical benefits to be had from good therapy and education. The day looks at these too and at how 'physical' factors can help create emotional and mental challenges. By demonstrating how thoroughly interconnected the mind and body are in the way they react to the world around us, and giving you new information and ways to incorporate this latest mind-body knowlege into your practice, he sifts the sense from the nonsense, making it easier to think clearly about our own health as well as that of our patients. And when we can think more clearly about health this creates more opportunities to help people thrive in the modern world...

(London) Understanding and improving children's difficult behaviour

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 7 March 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 7 March 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A one-day course with tutor: Miriam Chachamu - Best-selling author of "How to calm a challenging child". For children to be able to flourish and behave well, they need to feel secure, be given and receive appropriate attention, be able to delay gratification, take increasing levels of responsibility for their own behaviour, be stretched, develop a sense of autonomy and, of course, have fun! For all this to happen they also need to be emotionally well connected to their family, peers, school and the wider community; and be given a sense of status that reflects their effort and achievements. Miriam Chachamu’s wide-reaching training day, which focuses mainly on pre-eleven year-old children, clarifies how this can be done and gives you practical tools for meeting these needs and managing and preventing challenging behaviour. It also shows how we can create an environment in which not only children but also the rest of the family can thrive and be better equipped to fulfil their potential.

(London) From Self-Harm... to Self-Belief

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Thursday, 8 March 2018 @ 09:30 to Thursday, 8 March 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A one-day course with tutor: Emily Gajewski... Self-harming is on the increase at an alarming rate – particularly among young people – and it is one of the behaviours many find hard to treat. Emily Gajewski's inspiring training day demystifies self-harming and its causes and shows why we should not give up on people — even in the most apparently hopeless situations. It is common to feel powerless in the face of such wilful self-destruction – and many also find such behaviour difficult to understand or sympathise with – but armed with the clear, research-based framework and practical skills taught on this course, you needn’t feel that way again. Its wealth of information and useful tips will ensure you give sufferers the best chance of moving on in their lives – you will hear from people who have completely stopped (or dramatically reduced) self-harming and are now living fulfilled lives.

Organisation: Tavistock Relationships
First date and time: From Saturday, 10 March 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 10 March 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
Envy can be difficult to work with and, perhaps because of this, it can be easy to overlook in the consulting room. This study day will explore envy as an intrinsic component of intimate relationships - including the therapeutic one. It has been 60 years since Melanie Klein’s Envy and Gratitude was published. Her concept of primary envy saw the roots of envy lying in the inevitably unequal relationship between mother and infant. Envy, with its links with the projective system, repetition, destructiveness and potential reparation, still remains at the heart of psychoanalytically- oriented work with couples and individuals.

(London) Sophia Prevezanou: 'Working with Transference in the Supervisory Relationship'

Organisation: The Minster Centre
First date and time: From Saturday, 10 March 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 10 March 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
One of the aims of integrative supervision is the exploration and making sense of the client's transference and the therapist's countertransference. Supervision training teaches us that supervision is not therapy. Supervisors are warned about the pitfalls of turning the supervisory relationship into a therapeutic one. It is a reality, however, that transferential dynamics do arise within the supervisory relationship itself. Such dynamics are often hard to identify and stay hidden within the unconscious dynamics between therapist and client. If not addressed, transference can undermine the supervisory relationship and may have a knock on effect on therapists’ work with their clients. This workshop will be primarily experiential and will be examining how we can navigate this fine line between therapy and supervision without ignoring the transference and without engaging in working with it therapeutically. This workshop is for qualified practitioners only.

Organisation: WPF Therapy
First date and time: From Saturday, 17 March 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 17 March 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
This workshop will help guide participants through the difficult area of countertransference and provide an opportunity to link a deeper understanding to everyday clinical practice. Although originally seen as an unhelpful manifestation of the therapist’s own feelings, Paula Heimann’s (1950) ground-breaking paper ‘On Countertransference’ was the beginning of this concept becoming a vital instrument in contemporary analytic and psychodynamic clinical work. Early moments of trauma are encoded as body memories rather than words and the therapist’s countertransference is essential for conceptualizing pre-verbal sensory communication from patients or clients. It needs however to be handled with care. This requires the clinician to use their embodied, subjective knowledge empathically and appropriately in order to help the patient or client to start to feel safer with unmentalised primary experiences.

(London) Margaret Landale 'Trauma and the Therapeutic Relationship: Exploring the subtle processes of embodied attunement, empathy and integration.'

Organisation: The Minster Centre
First date and time: From Saturday, 24 March 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 24 March 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
There have been significant advances in the understanding and treatment of trauma in recent years, which has led to the development of a range of effective trauma processing models. However, these models have their limitations when we are faced with complex trauma issues, which may have their roots in early childhood and represent unstable, neglectful or abusive attachment scenarios. This workshop will offer an opportunity for participants to reflect deeply on the complex dynamics and processes we encounter when working with early trauma issues. We will draw on relevant clinical material and vignettes to illustrate processes of enquiry into complex trauma identity. We will consider issues of building trust, developing embodied empathic attunement, reading the ‘body’s language’ of trauma, engaging with dissociative processes and helping our client develop their capacity for embodied awareness, self-reflection and stabilisation. The day will have a practical clinical focus throughout, and there will also be opportunities for participants to bring their own clinical material and reflect on specific clinical dilemmas they might be facing.

(London) Sasha Bates: 'Therapists and Self Care'

Organisation: The Minster Centre
First date and time: From Saturday, 7 April 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 7 April 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
Recent research suggests that caring for others can impact on health - your own and that of your clients. This workshop will explore the science behind this claim, whilst also offering opportunities to experience the counterbalancing effects of self-care. Self-care can be an alien concept to those whose empathic temperaments have led them to a career in which they prioritise others at the expense of themselves. Compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, emotional contagion or burnout can result and lead to depression, anxiety, addiction and physical illness. As a therapist, it can feel shameful and might even suggest that we can no longer do our jobs. We often ignore our own needs and feel guilty at saying no to others and yes to ourselves. Neuroscience, polyvagal theory, right brain to right brain communication and much of the current research is showing that our bodyminds and nervous systems non-verbally communicate our lack of self-care to our clients, affecting their ability to experience us as a safe, holding, regulated presence. This workshop will enable you to: • Discuss the somatic consequences of your self- care choices on you and your clients; • Explore the impact on your health, happiness and career longevity; • Engage in experiential exercises - how effective is your current self-care; • Influence your nervous system, improve polyvagal tone, and learn to ground with yoga, breathing and meditation practices - all proven methods of self-regulation. Please bring a yoga mat and, if possible, a blanket and wear loose clothing. Most injuries and ailments can be adapted for, just let us know in advance.

(London) How to tell stories that heal A masterclass in therapeutic storytelling

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Thursday, 12 April 2018 @ 09:30 to Thursday, 12 April 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A one-day course with tutor: Pat Williams or Denise Winn... This popular and empowering day explores stories that have a powerful beneficial effect on the mind/body system and teaches you how to source and tell such therapeutic tales yourself. All successful psychotherapy and counselling involves storytelling and the appropriate use of metaphor, tapping into the natural way our brains work. We cannot know what goes on in another person’s mind but, if you perceive the ‘pattern’ of a story and understand that it could be useful to them at a specific point in their life, that is reason enough to tell it. Their unconscious, creative imagination will seek and find the ‘meaning’ relevant to their situation. No explanation, no direct statement of a story’s meaning can substitute for the way it acts on the hearer’s mind.

(London) Neurosomatic Therapy - Giving Voice to the Silenced Self

Organisation: WPF Therapy
First date and time: From Saturday, 14 April 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 14 April 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
- Are you working with clients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), ME or fibromyalgia? - Would you like to learn about the neurobiological evidence that may help explain these conditions? - Are you interested in learning about how to work with these difficult conditions in the consulting room? - Is there a link between these illnesses and early trauma and impaired attachment? - How can your clients work towards a recovery? Workshop Aims 1. An understanding of the overall principles and practice of neurosomatic therapy for working with clients who have a medically unexplained somatoform disorder, with our emphasis on helping clients to resolve their inner emotional conflict between the beliefs and rules of their fear-based, defensive Survival Mind (False Self) that has silenced awareness and expression of their authentic, spontaneous emotions and the emotional needs of their True Self. 2. An understanding of how the body holds the key to discovering both the root cause of neurosomatic illness and the steps that clients need to take to make a full recovery from their illness. 3. Greater confidence in helping clients (and ourselves) safely to use somatic signals as a means of discovering some of their blocked emotions and unrecognised emotional needs, and of becoming more aware of their once protective but now harmful survival strategies. 4. Greater confidence in helping clients to take authentic action to resolve their inner emotional conflict, by guiding clients through specific ‘evocation’ states and supporting them to apply their new experiential learning in their day-to-day life. 5. An understanding of the emotional factors that can enhance or hinder recovery and how to address energy-depleting blocks to recovery. Recovery comes when clients can understand the neurosomatic roots of their illness, can more fully express the needs of their True Self, through a combination of increased self-awareness and belief in their own self-agency through engaging in new energy-enhancing and authentic forms of self-expression. We will look at unconscious resistance to relinquishing the secondary gains of illness and addressing the unacknowledged fears of making a recovery that can block clients’ progress. Outline This workshop will use experiential exercises as well as theoretical presentations, clinical examples, role play and discussions.

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 18 April 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 18 April 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A two-day master course with tutor: Sue Saunders... Even the most severe phobic and post-traumatic stress (PTSD) symptoms can be quickly and safely treated with the precisely targeted skills of the refined version of the rewind technique taught on this two-day course. This refined version of the rewind technique is the most reliably successful psychological treatment available for removing even the severest phobias and detraumatising people – it is easy to learn and one of the most important skills you need when working with any anxiety disorder. Using it you can, in often as little as one or two sessions, detraumatise bad memories, stop flashbacks, cure phobias, banish nightmares and reduce anxiety so you can help the victims of abuse, rape, violence, car accidents, fire, terrorism and panic attacks, heart attacks and other life-threatening experiences. It is also invaluable for helping people with phobias, those who have suffered persistent physical or sexual abuse, and people with OCD. Some people suffering from depression have experienced a traumatic experience which needs to be detraumatised in order for them to move on with their lives. The technique has the added benefit of being non-intrusive – there is no need for individuals to go into the details of the events which have traumatised them with the therapist. Those who have already done this course have brought relief to thousands.

Organisation: WPF Therapy
First date and time: From Saturday, 21 April 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 21 April 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
- Are you new to working with groups? - Would you like to improve your skills when working with groups? - Are you thinking about further training in working with groups? This workshop will help participants to gain a sense of what happens within a group and the role as group conductor. Attending the workshop will help to identify and manage all the conflicting dynamics that can happen within a group. This workshop takes place over two consecutive Saturdays. Groups should be easy and straightforward, after all we grew up in one; spend nearly all our time in groups and rarely find ourselves alone. But they are demanding, frustrating, challenging and often full of conflict. Many organisations ask counsellors and therapists to run groups even though they do not specific training in working with groups. This can be a challenging, but rewarding experience. However, sometimes it can feel overwhelming. During this intensive, two day workshop, you will begin to make sense of what is happening in the group and your role. This workshop will help you make sense of groups and inspire you to train and develop your groupwork skills. This is an intense, challenging, stimulating and exciting two day workshop. Previous participants have been inspired and surprised by the intimacy generated in a group over such a short period of time. Participants will be introduced to working with therapeutic groups from a process oriented perspective. The day will revolve around discussion, theoretical input, video triggers, and small experiential groups designed so that participants can better understand what it is like to be in a group and observe process in the ‘here and now’. Topics covered will include the function of therapeutic groups, role of the conductor, whole group process, the ‘here and now’, dealing with difficult group members. One of the goals of this introduction is to provide direct experience for every participant of the difference in the approaches between the mean theoreticians. This will be achieved through an experiential group component. Participants will be involved in groups reflecting both approaches, with opportunity afterwards to discuss their impression of the approaches and methods.

(Stroud) Oedipus is Alive and Well and Living in Gloucestershire presented by Michael Jacobs

Organisation: Gloucestershire Counselling Service
First date and time: From Saturday, 28 April 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 28 April 2018 @ 16:30

Description:
Freud's Oedipus Complex is one of four cornerstones of psychoanalytic theory. But is Freud's interpretation of the original Sophocles play the only one? Is the complex really a universal phenomenon or was it his own problem? The day, based on Michael's book Illusion (2000) starts with the background to the play itself that includes a film-viewing, followed by a discussion drawing out different possibilities exploring how Freud's initial theory has changed over the years. In asking whether the complex has not outlived its usefulness, Michael examines the continuing relevance of the oedipal triangle in our work, inviting participants to see how important the symbol of the triangle is for their understanding of personal and couple dynamics. Michael Jacobs is a psychodynamic and integrative psychotherapist and visiting Professor at Bournemouth University and the University of Leeds. His seminal books are key texts on many training programmes and include; The Presenting Past (2012, 4th edition, Open University Press) and Psychodynamic Counselling In Action (2017, 5th edition Sage). January 2018 sees the launch of his professional autobiography, Fifty Years of Counselling: My Presenting Past (Open University Press).

Description:
Veronica Gioscia BSc. M.Sc Saturday 28th April 2018 10:00 – 16:00 Drake House, 44 St Georges Road, London SW19 4ED Workshop cost: £120/ 10% discount for Wimbledon Guild counsellors/ Limited Early-bird discount of 15% available until 21st Feb 2018 SPACES LIMITED TO 30 ONLY The Workshop Following last year’s workshop with Veronica “CBT for beginners” this workshop will focus specifically on CBT techniques and problem solving. The aim of the workshop will be to provide an overview of the basic principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours are linked together and influence us. Cognition is a key activity in our brain that helps us overcome difficulties, but sometimes traps us in rigid thinking patterns. CBT aims to alleviate emotional distress by helping patients to identify and modify distorted patterns of thinking. CBT therapists teach clients to do things differently and help them to change cognitions and affect via planned experiential activities and homework. Client and therapist are encouraged to view the client’s belief as hypothesis to be evaluated in terms of their consistency with available data and to test these hypothesis, investigating their validity through practical exercises. This practical workshop will teach therapists how to help the client to identify circular thoughts and recognise maladaptive and safety behaviours, how to structure the therapeutic session with specific goals and how to agree on appropriate homework and how to explain the importance of trying these techniques in vivo. The focus will be on specific tools such as exposure for anxiety disorders, behavioural activation for depression and behavioural experiments. Behavioural experiments have been defined as the evolution and revolution of CBT, they give clients virtually irrefutable evidence to discredit maladaptive thoughts and beliefs. New cognitions derived from experiments are more likely to be believed and accepted (I experience it, therefore it must be true). The key objective is to teach practical techniques that transform emotional states and facilitate problem solving. The Trainer Veronica Gioscia is a Counselling Psychologist in private practice working with adults and the main private health insurance companies since 2012. She is currently part of the IPTT Lambeth (Integrated Psychological Therapy Team) MBT (Mentalization Based Theory) team at the Maudsley NHS foundation trust working with borderline personality disorder patients. She is a supervisor at the Wimbledon Guild. Veronica started her career as a Criminal Lawyer in Italy working daily with people with extremely stressful psychological conditions. In 1998 Veronica moved in the UK and obtained a degree in Psychology and a post MSc in Counselling Psychology. From 2009 to 2011 she received specialist training from the Institute of Psychiatry and the Maudsley NHS foundation trust in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). In 2012 she obtained a Psychodynamic Psychotherapy MA from the University of Essex Tavistock and Portman NHS trust. She has worked for the NHS in various capacities. From 2005 to 2008 she was a member of Lambeth Primary Care Team working in various GP surgeries. From 2008 to 2011 she was a member of the first Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Service Team in the South London and the Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.

(London) Anxiety and Learning: How to Boost Students' Abilities

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 2 May 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 2 May 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
Anxiety massively inhibits academic learning and performance – for some this may present as general anxiety and low motivation. Others experience anxiety in relation to specific tasks, such as taking exams, giving presentations or writing (often developing writer’s block). By pushing more and more of our young people towards anxiety, depression or self-harming – in some cases even suicide – we are undermining the fabric of our country's future. This is not currently well understood. However, research has continually demonstrated that it is possible to eliminate these types of anxiety, quickly and effectively – if the right approach is taken. This wide ranging training day leads the way. As well as examining the various causes of anxiety in young people today, it looks at the crucial links between our emotions and learning and provides you with a range of simple, clear and practical strategies (that Gareth uses with great success in his own work at the University of Derby) to: lower students’ anxiety generally, boost motivation, help students overcome exam anxiety and be able to present well in public, and conquer writer’s block and more...

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Thursday, 3 May 2018 @ 09:30 to Thursday, 3 May 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
Tutor Richard Brook brings a practical and humorous approach to the bewildering array of models currently directed at front-line workers. The programme is varied and intensive, yet lively with a strong focus on gaining skills. It clarifies what healthy teenage development looks like, why things can go wrong and the best ways to help young people overcome obstacles and begin to create lives for themselves that work well. Richard also shows how, by working with the 'givens' of human nature, and ensuring that sound knowledge of how people really function is applied intelligently to teenagers, you can speed up progress and bring them real benefits. At the end of the day you will find yourself more empowered to respond effectively to each individual’s needs, temperament and learning style, whilst avoiding the emotional pitfalls of working in stressful situations.

(Edinburgh) Workplace Stress: The real causes and what you can do about them

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Thursday, 10 May 2018 @ 09:30 to Thursday, 10 May 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A one-day training course with tutors: Julia Welstead or Jennifer Broadley... This course looks at the root causes of stress and at the difference between being healthily stretched and unhealthily stressed. It explores the human givens perspective on why stress levels can become chronic and dangerous and cause a whole range of symptoms such as exhaustion, back pain, headaches, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, anger disorders, heart disease and alcohol or drug dependency. Any of these symptoms will undermine motivation, ensure poor performance, lower productivity, sour colleague relationships and increase absenteeism and staff turnover. For most of us, work takes up a significant proportion of our life. Nobody sets out to deliberately raise their stress levels at work or anywhere else, and yet for many of us chronic stress caused by our working life can get in the way of our enjoyment, performance and overall sense of achievement. Jennifer Broadley outlines what is needed to tackle these problems: how to stay calm and build emotional resilience whilst developing a working environment that enhances wellbeing as well as profitable performance. She shows how a ‘pulling together’ effect takes hold when all levels of the company can see the broader context of their work and appreciate others’ perspectives. As a result, efficiency improves, sick leave and staff turnover are reduced and overall productivity and profit are optimised: a win-win situation.

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Tuesday, 5 June 2018 @ 09:30 to Tuesday, 5 June 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A two-day course with tutor: Véronique Chown or Denise Winn. This invigorating course will arm you with a powerful toolkit of precisely-targeted therapeutic skills and strategies for successfully helping people resolve emotional turmoil, mood disorders and psychological trauma, as quickly as possible. Despite more and more effort and resources being put into helping people in distress, the numbers of people suffering mental health problems continues to rise. In addition, the continuing cost constraints put upon the medical and caring professions and the increasing realisation of the risks associated with drug treatments, mean there is an ever increasing demand for better outcomes from brief, psychological treatments for emotional problems. But – as more and more people are discovering – by distilling the essence of proven brief therapy approaches and working with the givens of human nature through the APET™ model, outcomes can be dramatically improved and suffering successfully reduced. This lively two-day workshop shows you how to do this and gives you a solid foundation in the most effective brief solution-focused strategies and language skills – these are essential if you want to be able to help people as quickly as possible. It also shows you how any team of professional healthcare workers can safely incorporate brief therapy techniques into their work with patients suffering from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, anger, OCD, eating disorders, addiction and relationship/marital/family problems, thereby improving outcomes and reducing suffering on an even wider scale.

Description:
A one-day counselling course with tutor: Véronique Chown or Jennifer Broadley... Every relationship has its ups and downs, but sometimes these become too difficult for a couple to manage on their own. Véronique Chown's one-day couples counselling course draws on pioneering research that reveals what makes relationships flourish and she shares the practical guidelines and skills she has acquired over many years of successfully helping couples using the human givens approach to build and maintain supportive and mutually rewarding relationships. Presented without psychobabble, and making good use of insightful case histories, Véronique demystifies an area of counselling that many find daunting or fear is complicated. The day covers: the most effective ways to help and build rapport with couples in conflicted relationships; the sex differences in processing emotions; non-blame talking styles; the long-term impact of parenting; past conditioning, including psychological traumas, that can give clues about why difficulties arose; and what we can learn from the way successful couples facilitate mutual needs satisfaction.

Description:
A one-day course with tutor: Dr Andrew Morrice... Dr Andrew Morrice's fascinating day explores the many reasons for this (for instance, much of our collective thinking and advice about health is contradictory and distorted by vested interests and preconception) – and what can be done about them. Human givens therapy is a truly bio-psycho-social model of emotional and mental wellbeing, which draws much of its strength from brain-science, but there is more – there are also physical benefits to be had from good therapy and education. The day looks at these too and at how 'physical' factors can help create emotional and mental challenges. By demonstrating how thoroughly interconnected the mind and body are in the way they react to the world around us, and giving you new information and ways to incorporate this latest mind-body knowlege into your practice, he sifts the sense from the nonsense, making it easier to think clearly about our own health as well as that of our patients. And when we can think more clearly about health this creates more opportunities to help people thrive in the modern world...

(London) The shame of being oneself: Internalised homophobia and shame within sexual identity

Organisation: WPF Therapy
First date and time: From Saturday, 16 June 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 16 June 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
This workshop will explore the concept of internalised homophobia and its relevance as an idea for both LGB (lesbian, gay and bisexual) and heterosexual people. It can be understood as a process whereby negative social and environmental beliefs and attitudes about homosexuality and same sex attraction are taken in by the individual and experienced as part of the self. This can lead to shameful feelings affecting both individual and relational life, and cause internal suffering which may be extremely difficult to acknowledge or articulate. The aim of this workshop is to increase knowledge and awareness of the meaning and impact of internalised homophobia as a concept relevant to clinical practice. This workshop will also help participants develop self-awareness around attitudes to do with sexual orientation and the existence of internalised homophobia, and to address challenges of working with such shame in the consulting room. The workshop will include presentation and discussion of theoretical ideas, clinical reflection, and experiential components. In particular we will explore the impact on the therapist in working with such shame in the consulting room. It will be valuable for participants to bring examples of their own clinical work and experience to discuss.

Organisation: Gloucestershire Counselling Service
First date and time: From Saturday, 16 June 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 16 June 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
The workshop will explore the sexual relationship in couples. The sexual relationship will be considered as an expression of conscious and unconscious processes within the couple relationship; 'body talk' could be seen as enactments of the repressed/denied. Key areas of exploration will include: Intimacy and the fear it can provoke, attachment development in conjunction with sexual development, the place of desire/lack of desire in individuals and within relationships, is desire the same as arousal? The day will explore ways of working with a couple's sexual relationship, bringing theories together, case studies and how to talk about sex. Suzanna McKenzie is a BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist and holds an MSc. in psychosexual therapy. She is a visiting clinician at Tavistock Relations, London and a supervisor as well as a trainer for couples' counsellors at GCS. Madeleine Woof has a private practice working with individuals, couples and families and has for the past 25 years worked as a therapist at the Bridge Foundation for Psychotherapy in Bristol.

(Bristol) ACPP: Relational dynamics in body-oriented psychotherapy

Organisation: INTEGRA CPD
First date and time: From Sunday, 17 June 2018 @ 10:00 to Sunday, 17 June 2018 @ 16:30

Description:
This workshop is an ideal opportunity for an introduction to Michael’s work, and specifically how he approaches the integration of the paradigm clash between the humanistic and psychodynamic traditions. It is an affordable workshop on a crucial topic, as many integrative therapists struggle to integrate these paradigms rather than oscillate between them, both in their work and in supervision. There are still a few places (at this time: about 6) left on this workshop, which was initiated by the Association for Core Process Psychotherapy. Most participants, therefore, will be Core Process therapists, which will give the day an emphasis on the body-mind and psychosomatic connection, and how attention to the two bodies in the therapeutic relationship (or better: the two ‘bodyminds’) can provide the experiential foundation for the integration of paradigms. In the lineage of Body Psychotherapy, we come across a set of diverse and to some extent confusing and contradictory assumptions as to what we mean by therapeutic relating and the therapeutic relationship. On the whole, the whole range of body-oriented work as practised today clearly belongs to the humanistic tradition, with its emphasis on authentic/dialogical and empathic/reparative relating. This sits alongside influences from the psychoanalytic tradition, notably the work of Reich and his ideas about working with transference, as well as his quasi-medical and scientific attitude to treatment (which he shared with Freud). These different paradigms of relating are quite difficult to integrate and bring together, as they are based on polarised attitudes and stances in terms of one-person and two-person psychologies. That raises the question as to what we mean by being ‘relational', especially in recent years, when that notion has become increasingly fashionable, and is in danger of becoming diluted. As psychotherapists working in the body-oriented traditions, we have the potential to bring a more substantial, embodied and complex notion of relating to the talking therapies. This workshop is an opportunity to explore your own experience of the tensions between the polarised humanistic and psychoanalytic traditions, and how you integrate them. This tension hinges around the essential conflict between ‘authentic relating’ and 'working with the transference' - two principles which many of us find equally valid and want to equally do justice to in our work. It has been understood and acknowledged for decades that any direct and directive work with the body, especially if it includes touch, intensifies the transference. However, psychoanalysts have contested that by using directive body-oriented interventions, body-oriented therapists are minimising and sidestepping the transference. In fact, all therapies that are relying exclusively on an empathic, attuned, heartfelt connection are open to that psychoanalytic challenge (keeping things too cosy, encouraging regression or over-dependency, avoiding the negative transference) and to the question of whether this is in the client's best interests. When our intention is to work with the client’s ‘character’, i.e. with all the embodied levels of developmental injury, across the whole bodymind, how do these different traditions and paradigms of relating get in each other's way or complement each other and how might they create an integrative synergy?

(London) Effective Pain Management Psychological Techniques for Reducing Persistent Pain and Accelerating Healing

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 27 June 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 27 June 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
Pain is endemic in our society and whatever the cause – back pain, migraine, arthritic pain, dental pain, irritable bowel (IBS), labour/menstrual pain, cancer pain, psychogenic pain, psychosomatic pain – it can be incapacitating...but this suffering can be reduced. This workshop – with leading pain and musculoskeletal medicine consultant Dr Grahame Brown – gives you important new information about how we experience pain – derived from the latest neuroscience – and a powerful range of psychological techniques for managing pain naturally, preventing it from escalating and speeding up healing. You will discover how people can be helped out of the vicious cycle of chronic pain and how, by working holistically through the bio-psycho-social model, suffering can be dramatically reduced. You don't need to have any prior medical knowledge to learn from and enjoy the day – you will leave with a much clearer understanding of what is going on in the mind/body system, what you can do to reduce suffering when pain persists and ways to prevent chronic ongoing pain from developing. It is a key event if you work with people suffering from pain at any stage (from recent onset, recurrent to persistent) or if you would like to find out how to successfully manage pain without medication. You will learn a wide variety of pain management techniques, which can easily be integrated into your work, to help relieve pain and promote recovery – often in just one session.

(Bristol) How to tell stories that heal A masterclass in therapeutic storytelling

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Tuesday, 18 September 2018 @ 09:30 to Tuesday, 18 September 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A one-day course with tutor: Pat Williams or Denise Winn... This popular and empowering day explores stories that have a powerful beneficial effect on the mind/body system and teaches you how to source and tell such therapeutic tales yourself. All successful psychotherapy and counselling involves storytelling and the appropriate use of metaphor, tapping into the natural way our brains work. We cannot know what goes on in another person’s mind but, if you perceive the ‘pattern’ of a story and understand that it could be useful to them at a specific point in their life, that is reason enough to tell it. Their unconscious, creative imagination will seek and find the ‘meaning’ relevant to their situation. No explanation, no direct statement of a story’s meaning can substitute for the way it acts on the hearer’s mind.

This workshop has saved lives. Until recently, depression was little understood, but now you can absorb the easy-to-learn psychological techniques that lift it quickly ... even in the severest cases. Antidepressants (though dangerous) can play a role in reducing symptoms, but research shows that appropriate counselling is the most effective way to lift even the most severe depression, and has a much lower rate of relapse.

(Edinburgh) Guided imagery and visualisation

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Tuesday, 25 September 2018 @ 09:30 to Tuesday, 25 September 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A one-day course with: Sue Saunders... trong emotions focus and lock attention – keeping people trapped in problem behaviours. Therapeutic change cannot happen until the emotional arousal is reduced. This is why healthcare professionals need to know how to induce the relaxation response in patients. Guided imagery and visualisation not only reduce emotional arousal quickly but can be used to reframe life circumstances through metaphor and to rehearse in the imagination any required changed behaviours and/or feelings. Among other things, guided imagery is an essential skill required for removing phobias, curing PTSD, lifting depression and raising self-confidence. When you become confident in using these skills, you can begin to bring patients out of the emotionally-driven trance states of a wide range of conditions such as anxiety disorders, addiction, anger, stress overload, depression and chronic pain. That is why guided imagery is one of the most powerful psychotherapeutic tools known.

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 24 October 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 24 October 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
Effective Pain Management: Psychological techniques for reducing persistent pain and accelerating healing - A life-changing 1-day course with Dr Grahame Brown. This workshop – with leading pain and musculoskeletal medicine consultant Dr Grahame Brown – gives you important new information about how we experience pain – derived from the latest neuroscience – and a powerful range of psychological techniques for managing pain naturally, preventing it from escalating and speeding up healing. You will discover how people can be helped out of the vicious cycle of chronic pain and how, by working holistically through the bio-psycho-social model, suffering can be dramatically reduced. You don't need to have any prior medical knowledge to learn from and enjoy the day – you will leave with a much clearer understanding of what is going on in the mind/body system, what you can do to reduce suffering when pain persists and ways to prevent chronic ongoing pain from developing. It is a key event if you work with people suffering from pain at any stage (from recent onset, recurrent to persistent) or if you would like to find out how to successfully manage pain without medication. You will learn a wide variety of pain management techniques, which can easily be integrated into your work, to help relieve pain and promote recovery – often in just one session.

(London) Anxiety and Learning: How to Boost Students' Abilities

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Friday, 2 November 2018 @ 09:30 to Friday, 2 November 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
Anxiety massively inhibits academic learning and performance – for some this may present as general anxiety and low motivation. Others experience anxiety in relation to specific tasks, such as taking exams, giving presentations or writing (often developing writer’s block). By pushing more and more of our young people towards anxiety, depression or self-harming – in some cases even suicide – we are undermining the fabric of our country's future. This is not currently well understood. However, research has continually demonstrated that it is possible to eliminate these types of anxiety, quickly and effectively – if the right approach is taken. This wide ranging training day leads the way. As well as examining the various causes of anxiety in young people today, it looks at the crucial links between our emotions and learning and provides you with a range of simple, clear and practical strategies (that Gareth uses with great success in his own work at the University of Derby) to: lower students’ anxiety generally, boost motivation, help students overcome exam anxiety and be able to present well in public, and conquer writer’s block and more...

(London) Workplace Stress: The real causes and what you can do about them

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Tuesday, 6 November 2018 @ 09:30 to Tuesday, 6 November 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A one-day training course with tutors: Julia Welstead or Jennifer Broadley... This course looks at the root causes of stress and at the difference between being healthily stretched and unhealthily stressed. It explores the human givens perspective on why stress levels can become chronic and dangerous and cause a whole range of symptoms such as exhaustion, back pain, headaches, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, anger disorders, heart disease and alcohol or drug dependency. Any of these symptoms will undermine motivation, ensure poor performance, lower productivity, sour colleague relationships and increase absenteeism and staff turnover. For most of us, work takes up a significant proportion of our life. Nobody sets out to deliberately raise their stress levels at work or anywhere else, and yet for many of us chronic stress caused by our working life can get in the way of our enjoyment, performance and overall sense of achievement. Jennifer Broadley outlines what is needed to tackle these problems: how to stay calm and build emotional resilience whilst developing a working environment that enhances wellbeing as well as profitable performance. She shows how a ‘pulling together’ effect takes hold when all levels of the company can see the broader context of their work and appreciate others’ perspectives. As a result, efficiency improves, sick leave and staff turnover are reduced and overall productivity and profit are optimised: a win-win situation.
