(London) Addiction and attachment: the roots, leaves and branches of addiction and addictive behaviours - with Jeff Lane

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
First date and time: From Saturday, 23 June 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 23 June 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
Addiction has been described as “cunning, baffling and powerful”, working with clients who demonstrate addictive behaviours can also be described as “frustrating, confusing and mystifying!” Looking at addiction from an attachment perspective can be enlightening and empowering for client and therapist. It can provide a firm foundation from which to support recovery and facilitate profound change. In this one day CPD workshop we will seek to explore how counsellors and therapists can become more effectual in helping bring about sustainable lasting changes which bring increased satisfaction, wellbeing and joy for a wide range of clients. We will seek answers for some challenging and too often unasked questions. What do we mean by addiction? how do we use the word as a description, a diagnosis, a warning or simply as a criticism? How does early attachment experience manifest as patterns of addiction later in life? How can we best respond to clients who present as ‘addicted’? how do they see themselves and what would they like to be different? Through a mix of large group teaching, smaller group exploratory and experiential work and whole group plenary work. Attendees can hope to go away feeling better informed and more skilled with a wider range of therapeutic responses to a wide range of client presentations.

(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.

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Thursday, 28 June 2018 @ 09:30 to Thursday, 28 June 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.

Learn EMOTIONALLY FOCUSED THERAPY for Couples and Individuals at the 3rd EFT International Summer School, EFT-NEWCOMERS Stream. Do your clients question if their partners are there for them? Do they wonder about their partners’ accessibility?

Gulya Diyarova, UK, Certified EFT therapist and supervisor will present to Newcomers Stream on Overview of EMOTIONALLY FOCUSED THERAPY (EFT) approach.

EFT sees emotional closeness, safety and intimacy at the core of a loving and meaningful relationship. When a relationship is in distress we tend to start a habitual 'dance', where one person criticizes and gets angry and the other defends and shuts down. The couple get caught up in this negative dance, and very soon we see the other person as the enemy. EFT helps the partners identify the patterns of blame and distancing, and helps couples to safely connect and become close again.

(London) An Introduction to Understanding and Treating Sex Addiction: Is sex addiction a myth? With Gavin Sharpe

Organisation: The Minster Centre
First date and time: From Saturday, 30 June 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 30 June 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
This one day workshop is aimed at providing a definition of sex addiction and to consider the various treatment methodologies. Sex Addiction is not included in the DSM-V. Post Harvey Weinstein, the debate as to whether sex addiction is real has been re-ignited. If sex addiction is real, how do we define it? (For example, do we differentiate between addiction and compulsivity? Do we include sexual offending?) If it is real, how do we treat our clients suffering from it? The aims of the workshop include: - To understand causes of sex addiction. - To provide an understanding of the cycle of addiction including triggers and underlying issues. - To provide counsellors with the tools to help diagnose sex addiction. - To provide an overview of treatment options for those with addiction (including partners of sex addicts). - To provide experiential opportunities to practise assessment and treatment skills. - To consider the differences in sex addiction among male and female clients. - To understand the specific issues around sex addiction and gay men.

Description:
Running from 2-7 July 2018, this is a six-day Summer School for people with little or no experience of working with clients, who are interested in finding out about working clinically with couples, and learning more about the couple relationship. Students will explore a range of themes in relation to intimate relationships. The course looks at the special character of the marital/couple focus and the theory underpinning this approach. In addition, the training can improve personal and professional relationships through developing greater self-awareness and an enhanced understanding of the dynamics inherent in any family or social group. We use a variety of teaching methods such as films, exercises, group discussions, readings, as well as role-plays on this course. By the end of the course, students will have formed a basic understanding of working therapeutically with couples. Please note: Suitable students completing the 2018 Summer Schools will have the opportunity to apply for our Masters' Programmes in the same year, courtesy of a special extended application deadline. The course will: - introduce marital and couple counselling theories with special emphasis on the psychodynamic approach - offer a framework for understanding conscious and unconscious communication in couples that is grounded in theory, clinical case examples and seminar discussion - introduce the range of skills that are used in couple work, with a chance to practice these in role plays - enable you to develop self-reflective skills by participating in experiential groups - reflect on changing trends in family and marital relationships as well as the impact of children on couples - explore the themes of divorce, affairs, and psychosexual problems, as well as issues around gender, sexuality and ethnicity - issues related to gender, sexuality and ethnicity.

(London) Guided imagery and visualisation

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Tuesday, 3 July 2018 @ 09:30 to Tuesday, 3 July 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, 4 July 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 4 July 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.

Organisation: The Minster Centre
First date and time: From Saturday, 14 July 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 14 July 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
In this 40th anniversary of the founding of the Minster Centre (1978) we invite you to join us in an exploration of empowerment through music and movement. Briefly remembering world changing events concerning human rights in and around 1978, we celebrate what was achieved then and focus on what is still to come to fruition. We consider how to use the transformative impact of the arts to communicate and engage with personal and political issues. This workshop makes use of iconic songs, such as Glad To Be Gay, Why Can’t We Live Together, Nkosi Sikelel’, Big Yellow Taxi and more. The group can explore the nature of expressiveness through singing, moving and feeling our responses to these words and music. We will harness the energy, commitment and creativity of these pieces to inform our own style and practice as psychotherapists. Our focus is not on nostalgia but on developing agency and sustaining inspiration. We will explore some ways of introducing music and movement into clinical work through improvisation. We begin with attending to the tone, pitch and rhythm of our discourse. The emphasis is on empowerment: voicing one’s relational position is a political act. *from W. B. Yeats' 1914 volume of poems Responsibilities.

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
First date and time: From Saturday, 14 July 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 14 July 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
The ability to recover from difficult situations and adversity, learn and adapt from such experiences, is at the core of the resilience. This resilience is promoted by the willingness to try again and adapt when circumstances warrant it, and is facilitated by having a caring and compassionate attitude to the self. Mindful Self-Compassion centres on learning skills of cultivating mindful presence and a compassionate self which can counter the ‘inner critic’. By developing skills such as compassionate listening, compassionate self, mindful presence and more, participants gain skills in emotional regulation, ability to be compassionately with an other’s distress and increased wellbeing and resilience. This workshop introduces the core skills of the Mindful Self-Compassion course in a day that consists of both didactic theoretical teaching and experiential exercises. The participants will learn new skills and techniques which may help them in their practice as well as exercises that can be used with clients.

(London) A Taste of Gestalt Therapy: Awareness, Contact and the Here and Now with Claire Asherson Bartram

Organisation: The Minster Centre
First date and time: From Saturday, 21 July 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 21 July 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
Gestalt is a German word meaning ‘whole’ in the sense of the whole being a sum of its parts. It has a robust theory and emphasises creativity, and awareness of what is happening in the here and now. Gestalt practitioners devise creative experiments – explorations that stretch the boundaries of what is familiar into new territory. Contact and boundaries are important in Gestalt theory and its practitioners have a reputation for being direct, relational and welcoming authentic encounter. On this workshop we will explore key aspects of Gestalt through experiential exercises and discussion. Participants will be supported to pay attention to their emotional and physical feelings throughout the day and to engage in dialogue that focuses on what is taking place in the present. The aim is for participants to have a practical introduction to Gestalt and to gain a sense of its contribution to therapeutic practice and human potential.

(London) A Day with Peter Levine

Organisation: SOS Internationale (Somatic Experiencing Training®)
First date and time: From Tuesday, 28 August 2018 @ 10:00 to Tuesday, 28 August 2018 @ 18:00

Description:
War is like a wildfire that is fueled by brutality and suffering; it is at the darkest of humanity. It ravages our identities, separates our families, robs us of our cultures, homelands, traditions, and even language. It represents a deep rupture in the foundation of the self. Thousands are displaced, scraping together whatever possessions they can to embark on a very dangerous and uncertain journey to seek safety and a brighter future. Many refuge seekers do not survive, and many lose those closest to them. When refuge seekers are able to locate a new home, they are often met with political strife, racism, and the locals’ fear of outsiders, not to forget the persistent and overwhelming stress of their own displacement into a foreign community. We must also consider the communities where these refugees are sent to live. They are typically poor, with limited political power and less education, while suddenly being forced to deal with a new environment that is inhabited by a strange culture and dominated by a foreign language. Currently, there is a global lean towards refusing refuge to those in need and deporting them back to the area of danger where they’ve already sacrificed everything in an effort to escape. What do we do as therapists, as human beings, when faced with individuals, children, and families who are banished to this ill-fated existence? How do you heal, when additional trauma may still be on the horizon? In this all-day presentation, pioneering trauma expert, Peter A Levine, PhD, will present his naturalistic and psychophysiological model for stress and trauma that he has pioneered over the past 45 years. He will explain how animals in the wild respond to stress and threat, how trauma is stored in the body and nervous system, and how both animals and human beings are capable of discharging past stress and trauma. Attending this 1-day Workshop will provide you with the psycoeduation and skills needed to aid in your clients understanding of their own terror, as well as their potential health issues, such as chronic pain, fatigue, digestive problems, depression, and anxiety. Dr. Levine will discuss short-term and long-term interventions for providing resiliency, based on a community and group-based model. He will demonstrate how to utilize body-based awareness techniques to change the body experience of trauma, rather than trying to change belief systems or endlessly chase horrific memories. He will also invite collaboration and ask attendees to share their techniques and ideas, to help build upon these experiences together as a generative healing community.

(London) ‘Being with’ rather than ‘doing to’: How to Manage Power, Control, Boundary and Attachment Dynamics when Working with Survivors of Complex Trauma

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
First date and time: From Saturday, 8 September 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 8 September 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
When working with survivors of complex trauma such as childhood sexual abuse, physical abuse, domestic abuse and spiritual abuse practitioners need to ensure that they do not replicate abuse dynamics in the therapeutic process and to minimise re-traumatisation. The systematic and repeated misuse of power and control that underpins abuse and complex trauma such as the use of threat, terror, silence, secrecy, shame and the distortion of reality dehumanises survivors and renders them voiceless. These dynamics are often re-enacted in the therapeutic relationship by both survivor and practitioner including behaviours to assert power and control, appeasement behaviours such as compliance and submission, boundary violations and oscillation between connection and disconnection. This training day aims to identify the ways in which these manifest in therapeutic space and how they can be managed to facilitate a more collaborative, non-hierarchical and relational approach in which survivors can truly heal rather than being catapulted back into trauma dynamics. To this effect the importance of ‘being with’ rather than ‘doing to’ will be emphasised alongside ways in which to minimise re-shaming or re-traumatising survivors to offer a genuine human relationship in which to recover and heal. Specifically we will consider: •The use of power and control in complex trauma and its dehumanising impact •The role of silence, secrecy, boundary violations and the distortion of reality •The impact of complex trauma on attachment and relational difficulties, including the trauma bond and how this can manifest in the therapeutic relationship •Therapist’s own need for power and control and relational style •How to manage power and control dynamics in the therapeutic relationship •How to facilitate a more collaborative, non-hierarchical and relationship approach through ‘being with’ rather than ‘doing to’

(London) A Stranger in a Strange Land with Harriet Goldenberg

Organisation: The Minster Centre
First date and time: From Saturday, 8 September 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 8 September 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
What are we doing when we make ourselves ‘foreigners’, be it voluntarily or through necessity, and what is it like to live away from one’s country of origin? What are the implications for questions of ‘identity’, and what becomes of the concept of ‘home’? These are some of the areas we will look at during this two day experiential workshop, with particular emphasis on the emotional and psychological processes that come into play. We will call upon our own experiences – both first hand and of others – as well as considering relevant literature. Those with an interest in inter-cultural counselling will find this in-depth exploration of the meaning of being a foreigner, both literal and metaphorical, of particular value to their work. It will also appeal to individuals wanting to explore their own experience of being ‘strangers in a strange land’. More than 20 years after its inception A Stranger in a Strange Land remains a very powerful and special opportunity to engage with the psychological and emotional processes involved in being a foreigner – an immigrant or a refugee – as well as the less overt sense many people have of being an ‘outsider’, ‘other’, ‘different’, ‘not at home’. This workshop provides a safe space to unpack and share some of the deeply felt experiences of ‘foreigness’ in all its guises, and an opportunity to gain greater understanding of what is entailed in becoming a foreigner.

(New York) Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) for Trauma Work

Organisation: Comprehensive Resource Model
First date and time: From Sunday, 9 September 2018 @ 09:00 to Sunday, 9 September 2018 @ 18:00

Description:
COST: $895. This is a CRM Basic Training, you will be qualified to use the model upon completion of this program Learn the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) technique in order to guide your clients toward a state of healing from traumatic events. Healing from trauma requires brain and body-based safety. One must step into the fear, feel it fully, and reorient toward the painful experiences in order to dismantle the neurobiology that drives symptoms, addictions, and relational challenges. Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM), created by Lisa Schwarz, is a therapeutic technique that combines psychotherapy, neuroscience, and spirituality. The CRM method combines numerous techniques—including indigneous healing, breathwork, and attachment psychotherapy—to create a healing alchemy through eye positions, ego state therapy, and somatic attunement. This provides neurobiological scaffolding to help clients safely experience maximum somatic embodiment, release painful emotions, and reconnect to their life meaning in a heart-centered state. In this training for mental health professionals, you learn to allow clients to clear their nervous systems, safely reprocess traumas, and extinguish fear while being fully present in the moment. Through talks, demonstrations, and practicums, you learn CRM skills for various diagnostic categories, tools to share with clients, and techniques to use when a client triggers you as a practitioner.

Organisation: Human Givens College

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.

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.

(London) John Bowlbly Memorial Conference 2018 "SHAME MATTERS"

Organisation: The Bowlby Centre
First date and time: From Friday, 21 September 2018 @ 09:00 to Friday, 21 September 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
Shame can be one of the most paralysing and withering of affects and relational experiences. It can be unbearably painful and corrosive, attacking one’s body and identity. It threatens to freeze the self and can have a significant and long lasting negative impact on the quality of attachment relationships. Shame seems to emerge as a consequence of neglect, critical and humiliating caregiving and other attachment traumas. In the context of our clients’ experience in the therapeutic relationship, the feeling of shame may relate to past or current events, actions and memories. In the absence of meaningful relationships and connections, shame can often trigger the terror of aloneness and dissolution. John Bowlby, along with an ever expanding body of empirical research, has taught us that secure relationships are the bedrock of affect regulation and reflective functioning, creative exploration and robust well being. Understanding shame as a relational problem, it is here that the client can gradually learn to move away from the overwhelming cycle of unbearable shame affects. This conference will bring together experts from across the world to discuss and explore different aspects of shame which can so often immobilise both the therapist and the client’s capacity to move on. Bringing together infant researchers, trauma experts, somatic interventions and clinical work, the aim of this conference is to explore and develop our understanding of the shameful deflations we encounter in the consulting room and will nurture new ways of relating.

Spiritual awakening is most often preceded by a life crisis that threatens to break us emotionally, physically and mentally. It can be accompanied by seemingly bizarre visions, perceptions and delusions. Seldom is it first perceived as a challenge to unfold, develop a new outlook, and bring new qualities into our life. However, not all crises are so dramatic as to be engulfing, yet in each case we are forced to confront the challenge of change and growth. In this seminar we will specifically cover:Life Crisis Signals indicative of an approaching crisis Techniques for developing an overview of the situation in order to see what is being asked of us Simple ways of incorporating personal changes into life Discovering purpose in a crisis Developing the qualities needed to meet the challenge You will begin each day with a lecture of 1.5 hours duration introducing the themes of the weekend.

(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.

(London) Towards A Shared Language of Pain: Exploring the body, chronic pain and illness in the consulting room

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
First date and time: From Saturday, 6 October 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 6 October 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
This training day will aim to afford practitioners the space to explore different ways to think about the chronic pain and illness that presents clinically, and to consider their own relationship with pain. In contemporary western society medical and pharmaceutical models prevail and pain has seemingly become a commodity with the accompanying idea that it can be ‘managed’ or neatly dispatched with the right pill, action, or behaviour. Clients experiencing chronic illness and pain, whose symptoms do not respond in this way often come to us feeling that they have failed or been failed by these paradigms. However, the counsellor and psychotherapists consulting room is not immune to the seductive notion of cure. We can often feel impotent, that our empathy is not enough and that we must immediately ‘do’ something beyond the usual to alleviate the suffering. Pain by its very nature compresses the space to think, and maintaining a light touch is not always easy as the combination of physical and emotional distress can bring with it an urgency to know and react. The idea of being in or around pain will evoke our own defences; we may subtly detach rather than attach, or we may yearn to rescue, and when we inevitably fail our clinical practice can emulate the cycles of hope and despair that are inherent to living with chronic illness and pain. Appreciating pain from both an outside in and an inside out perspective, the day will draw from socio-cultural, relational, and attachment theories as well as our own individual understanding and experience of pain, with the aim of thinking about how we may best support clients presenting with physical pain and long term debilitating medical conditions as an aspect of their sense of self. Ultimately to not lose sight of the power of finding meaning, attachment and connection in the face of pain. The day will include: •Relational, attachment, and developmental perspectives on the body. •Theories of pain. Socio-cultural, attachment, medical models, understandings from neuroscience. •The felt experience and consequences of living with chronic pain and illness; such as self-blame, anger, and shame. •Some thoughts on specific conditions, and the opportunity to reflect upon clinical material. •What can we do without rescuing? Considering the process of acceptance, and grieving a lost body and life, towards facilitating clients in pain to feel that they have increased choice and agency. •The Therapists pain and self-care.

(London) Race & Class: Implications, Meanings and their relevance to the Clinical setting - A view from the Bridge

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
First date and time: From Saturday, 20 October 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 20 October 2018 @ 13:00

Description:
Abstract Inequalities persist in almost every arena of British society. It is evident in employment, health provision, education and in the political arena. Both race and class are associated with indignities that are inter-generationally transmitted and framed in terms of status, occupation and income, to values and identity. This paper analysis's how race and class interact and examines how those inequalities are supported by racist and classist attitudes and behaviours. After the 2016 referendum in Britain on leaving or living within the European Union there has been a revival of the debate on race and class. This debate has focused principally on the white working class and on their cultural or social exclusion. The dialogue around racism has concentrated on blackness and dehumanisation. Currently the differing psychoanalytic theorising on race and class is confusing. This paper aims to contribute towards clarifying a psychoanalytic understanding of those issues from an attachment informed perspective. Charles Brown will make use of clinical material to show how these issues might present themselves in the consulting room and how they may be understood.

(London) Facilitating Spiritual Growth

Organisation: CCPE
First date and time: From Saturday, 20 October 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 20 October 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
Helping people to change and grow is the greatest art and science there is. In principle it is similar to sowing the seed, nurturing it, and, as it awakens, guiding it to grow into a beautiful plant or tree. However, with human beings it is more challenging and in some ways more difficult, but infinitely more rewarding. In psychotherapy we start by facing the inner challenges that life is presenting to us. Within each challenge we begin to discover our ideals, talents, purpose and ultimately our spiritual birthright. Achieving our ideals, however, is another matter. Careful guidance and support as well as patience, perseverance and initiative are needed as we proceed. This seminar will focus on the most important factors and attitudes involved, and on practising simple techniques used in this process of spiritual unfoldment. These will be:Facilitating Spiritual Growth Reviewing our life outlook and the problems it leads to Working with impulse, desire and inspiration Discovering purpose: Ideals, interests, talents and qualities Working through blocks to unfoldment. You will begin each day with a lecture of 1.5 hours duration introducing the themes of the weekend. For this you will join the main body of students training with CCPE. After a break you will join a small group for the rest of the day. This group will compose of others on the CPD programme and will be facilitated by a staff member of CCPE. These groups will provide a mix of teaching, exploration and experiential work that are intended to provide a holistic experience of the subject. All facilitators will be qualified psychotherapists and case material can also be brought and explored through the lens of the transpersonal.

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.

(Manchester) Shame and Self-Loathing in the Treatment of Trauma

Organisation: Psychotherapy Excellence
First date and time: From Saturday, 10 November 2018 @ 09:30 to Saturday, 10 November 2018 @ 17:30

Description:
Does shame prevent your traumatized clients’ recovery and hamper their ability to find relief and perspective despite effective treatment? Do your clients' feelings of worthlessness and inadequacy interfere with taking in positive experiences, leaving them to feel hopeless? Trauma therapists regularly confront the impact of shame on their clients’ ability to find relief and perspective even with good treatment. Feelings of worthlessness and inadequacy interfere with taking in positive experiences, leaving only hopelessness. Increased ability for self-assertion gets undermined by belief systems about worth or deserving. Progress in the treatment, increasing relief from symptoms, even greater success in life tend to evoke shame and self-judgment rather than pride. Despite the therapist's best efforts, unshakeable feelings of shame and self-hatred often undermine the treatment. This workshop will introduce participants to understanding shame from a neurobiological perspective—as a survival strategy driving somatic responses of automatic obedience and total submission—enforced by the client’s punitive introspection. Using lecture, videotape, and experiential exercises drawn from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a body-oriented talking therapy, participants will learn to help clients relate to their symptoms with mindful awareness and curiosity rather than automatic acceptance. When traditional psychodyanamic, cognitive-behavioural, and EMDR techniques are integrated with Sensorimotor interventions emphasizing posture, movement, and gesture, issues of shame can become an avenue to transformation rather than a source of stuckness.

(London) The Therapist’s Tale: the Enduring Influence of Our Own Attachment Histories with Linda Cundy

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
First date and time: From Saturday, 17 November 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 17 November 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
Attachment theory helps us to think about our clients and the difficulties they struggle with. Just as their relational histories shaped their lives, providing the relational environment in which their personalities and often their difficulties took shape, the same is true for us as practitioners. This workshop is an opportunity for participants to reflect on their own attachment stories and the traces of early experience that continue to influence them. Much can be learned about ourselves as counsellors and psychotherapists from tracing our own attachment journey, and this awareness can energise our work. Questions that will be addressed include: How has our own attachment history influenced us in our work? What sensitivities and strengths might we bring to our work as a result of our attachment experiences, and what might be areas for development? To what extent are our parents in the room with us as we work? Might our relationships with colleagues and sources of professional support indicate our core patterns of attachment, anxieties and defences? What can we understand about ‘earned security’? How do we manage the boundaries between professional and private life? What happens when our personal lives intrude into the work (through pregnancy, illness, relationship difficulties, bereavement etc.)? The day will be highly interactive. The basics of attachment theory will be outlined but the richness of individual experience and personal meaning will be central.

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

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Tuesday, 20 November 2018 @ 09:30 to Tuesday, 20 November 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.

DMP is practiced as individual and group therapy in settings such as health, education, social services and in private practice. The profession is continually informed by research and by initiatives and projects that open up and extend the field of DMP practice. The introductory day will involve a mixture of experiential and improvisational movement tasks, playful activity and discussion. Areas of exploration will include: (i) developing an awareness of the interrelationship between mind, emotions and the body; (ii) how the art form of dance informs the psychotherapeutic process and; (iii) exploring assumptions and prejudices in our everyday verbal and non-verbal language.

(London) LGBTQ+ Mental Health: Giving Voice to Gay Shame

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
First date and time: From Saturday, 24 November 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 24 November 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
Regardless of our varied clinical practice and approaches, we share one thing in common; knowingly or unknowingly, we all have clients who may identify as LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Queer or plus). But how well do we really understand their needs? Based on Simon Mark’s practice as an LGBTQ+ counsellor, group therapist and own lived experience, we will explore the unspoken and often misunderstood mental health crisis taking place amongst the LGBTQ+ community. Despite recent legal equality, research points to disproportionately high numbers of LGBT children and adults experiencing depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, poorer sexual health, alcoholism, addiction, suicidal ideation and sometimes, early death. The reasons are linked directly to the experiences that many (not all) LGBT children share growing up in a heteronormative society. Bullying, internalized homophobia and hypersensitivity can contribute to a core sense of shame, leading to a split psyche and poor attachment in relationship to themselves and others. Drawing together the latest psychotherapeutic research, historical and cultural LGBTQ+ context and case studies from Simon’s group work and individual clients, the day will outline how we can fully understand the problem, in order to better support our clients.

(London) Pluralistic Therapy

Organisation: Department of Psychology - University of Roehampton
First date and time: From Saturday, 1 December 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 1 December 2018 @ 16:30

Description:
This workshop will introduce, and look at the practical implications of, a pluralistic approach to counselling, psychotherapy and psychological practice. This framework was developed by John McLeod and Mick Cooper in the 2000s, and has since been adopted by a number of practitioners and training institutes across the UK and internationally.

The pluralistic approach is a collaborative, integrative perspective, deeply rooted in humanistic and person-centred values. Its fundamental premise is that each client is unique, and therefore may need different things from therapy. On this basis, the pluralistic approach creates a framework in which practitioners can integrate a wide variety of understandings and methods into their practice. A key element of this pluralistic approach is shared decision making: talking to clients about what they want from therapy, and how they might most effectively be helped to get there.

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 5 December 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 5 December 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.

(London) The Mind-Body Connection: Exploring the relationships between emotions, exercise and eating

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 12 December 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 12 December 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) An Introduction to Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
First date and time: From Saturday, 12 January 2019 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 12 January 2019 @ 16:00

Description:
In this workshop, Professor Windy Dryden will introduce the basic theory and practice of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy. During the training he will highlight some of the pitfalls of its practice and how these can be avoided or negotiated. Professor Dryden will explore common misconceptions of REBT and demonstrate how this model can be applied in client work. Delegates will need to come prepared with an example of an emotional or behavioural issue they, or a client has encountered and be prepared to volunteer in Professor Dryden's demonstration of using REBT practically in the clinical setting. This demonstration will be held in front of the training group. In bringing a personal issue the day is likely to be emotive and therefore we would ask that delegates consider this prior to booking as this will not be a therapeutic session.

(Wimbledon) The Impossible Profession- Michael Soth

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
Contact:
First date and time: From Saturday, 7 December 2019 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 7 December 2019 @ 16:00

Description:
Should practising as a therapist carry a health warning? What is the emotional cost of the therapeutic position, and what do we need to make it sustainable? How do relational dilemmas, as they manifest in the intricacy of each client-therapist relationship, affect the therapist’s well-being and how does this hook into the therapist’s ‘habitual position’, creating emotional exhaustion, burn-out, or vicarious traumatisation? Is there a way to make a sustainable living as a therapist or is it best practiced part-time? Is therapy a vocation dedicated to compassion, love and healing? Or is it a job, revolving around business and money? In practice, the answer for most of us could be that we operate comfortably in some middle zone of ambiguity, but in fact many counsellors and therapists struggle to do that. We all know that - unless we charge silly rates - we will not get rich in this profession, but we might achieve a comfortable degree of income and security, without selling our soul in the marketplace.
