(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.

(London) Guided imagery and visualisation

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

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

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 31 October 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 31 October 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.

(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 Group Going on Being: Destruction, Survival and Creativity - a Meeting between Winnicott and Foulkes

Organisation: Institute of Group Analysis
First date and time: From Saturday, 17 November 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 17 November 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
A conjoint workshop with the Institute of Group Analysis and The Squiggle Foundation

S.H. Foulkes (1898-1976) and Donald Winnicott (1896-1971) were both physicians, psychiatrists and psychoanalysts. Winnicott is usually thought of primarily in relation to individual development and psychoanalysis, and Foulkes in relation to the group, but in fact Winnicott’s theories can also be seen as profoundly social: the “environment-individual set-up”. Foulkes was always fully committed to psychoanalysis.

In this day-conference we will discuss the importance of Winnicott’s central theories to the practice of group-analytic psychotherapy, in particular to the “continuity of being” of the group, to the complex nature of group development and to the deep, shared emotional life of the group over time.

We will track these ideas developmentally through presentations about groups in babyhood, adolescence and adulthood.

This event is now fully booked. If you would like to go on the waiting list, please send an email to ruby@groupanalysis-uk.co.uk

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.

(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, Transgender, 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) When We Talk About Love: Celebrating the First 70 Years of Tavistock Relationships

Organisation: Tavistock Relationships
First date and time: From Friday, 30 November 2018 @ 09:30 to Friday, 30 November 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
The conference will explore what we mean when we talk about love, and consider the nature of intimate relationships at this particular moment of 21st-century history.

What are the pressures brought to bear on the couple relationship in the age of reality television programmes such as Love Island? Is this just a show designed to hook viewers or does it say something about contemporary love relations? How can we think clinically about the effects of social media and the pressures young people feel?

Louis Theroux will discuss his view of human relationships, based on his observations as an award-winning documentary film-maker and broadcaster.

Lisa Appignanesi will talk about her latest book, Everyday Madness: On Grief, Anger, Loss and Love, which weaves an exploration of psychoanalytic approaches to mourning into a moving memoir of bereavement.

Couple psychoanalytic psychotherapy has been shown to be effective in addressing the key social problems of our time, and can help to alleviate distress in children as well as their parents.

The conference will look at the context of social and family policy from the inception of the welfare state in post-war Britain to now, with a focus on evidence and the links between family functioning and mental health.

Consideration will be given to the institution’s ground-breaking developments in analytic work with couples, including the therapeutic opportunities of the triangular setting of couple therapy, and the centrality of working with the couple’s enacted experience in the room. A strong focus on clinical practice will explore clinical applications of analytic work with couples.

Presentations will draw from two new Tavistock Relationships books, which will be launched on the day: A Couple State of Mind: Psychoanalysis of Couples by Mary Morgan, and Engaging Couples: New Directions in Therapeutic Work with Families, edited by Andrew Balfour, Christopher Clulow and Kate Thompson.

Speakers will include:

Stanley Ruszczysnki, Professor Brett Kahr, Mary Morgan, Professor Paul Burstow, Dr Renee Singh, Baroness Claire Tyler, Andrew Balfour, Professor Nick Pearce.

(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.

First date and time: From Tuesday, 4 December 2018 @ 09:30 to Tuesday, 4 December 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A one-day course with tutor: Richard Brook... 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.

(Bristol) The Therapeutic Power of Language – a practical brief therapy 2-day masterclass

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) Impact of the Internet on Couple & Individual: Social Media, Online Gaming & Pornography

Organisation: Tavistock Relationships
First date and time: From Friday, 7 December 2018 @ 10:00 to Friday, 7 December 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
This full-day workshop will consider the ways in which intimate couple and family relationships can be affected by changes in behaviour linked with contemporary use of the internet. There can be a tendency especially for younger generations to rely on attachments made online, through social media, online gaming and chat rooms, rather than relationships that exist in the real world, and this can have a profound impact on the individual’s capacity to develop an authentic connection with another. Consideration will be given to the latest technological developments including multiplayer role-play and virtual reality, and the potential impact on psychological functioning, as well as specific issues around exposure to online gambling and internet pornography. Thought will be given to the way in which these issues present in the consulting room, and can affect couple functioning, including sexual dysfunction. Attendees are encouraged to bring clinical material for discussion. The trainer will be Poppy Mellor, couples therapist and psychosexual therapist. This workshop is suitable for psychotherapists working with individual clients and couples as well as for trainees.

(London) Understanding Groups in General Practice and Working At Scale: A Training Day for General Practitioners

Organisation: Institute of Group Analysis
First date and time: From Friday, 7 December 2018 @ 10:30 to Friday, 7 December 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
Groups are a fact of everyday life, at home, at school, at a social gathering, and of course, at work. Understanding how groups function, or at times, fail to function, is the first step towards more harmonious relationships at any of these mediums.

General practitioners are being actively encouraged to work at scale – either to merge with other practices or become ‘super practices”. This new way of working can create tensions as old relationships are broken and new ones formed. Successful partnership working requires an understanding, at personal, professional and organisational level of the unconscious processes in play.

The training is tailored to the circumstances and needs of GPs and those in leadership positions. It combines practical exercises and theoretical learning.

Learning outcomes:
• Understanding of group networks
• How to use groups to best effect
• Working with difference in groups

The day offers a framework for collaborative group work to help explain why sensible, rational people can sometimes find themselves in conflicts they can’t resolve, despite their best intentions.

Group analysis offers a multi - perspectival lens which aids our understanding and capacity to work with the types of challe nges that emerge in groups. T he IGA is pleased to introduce, Groups in Act ion, an exciting and innovative series of one - day training courses. Founded over 50 years ago, the IGA is the UK’s leading provider of group psychotherapy and Groupwork training.

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...

Guided Imagery and Visualisation

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Tuesday, 22 January 2019 @ 09:30 to Tuesday, 22 January 2019 @ 16:00

Description:
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. A one-day course CPD Certificate (6 hours)

(London) Inhabiting Life in Later Years: How to Work Clinically with Ageing and Dementia

Organisation: Tavistock Relationships
First date and time: From Friday, 25 January 2019 @ 10:00 to Friday, 25 January 2019 @ 16:00

Description:
Over successive generations our populations have become older. This increased longevity throws up a particular set of psychological challenges around the loss of physical and mental functioning. It exposes us ever more starkly to the realities of age-related illnesses and conditions such as dementia. This full-day workshop will develop an understanding of the psychological issues that can come to dominate in later life. Challenges may be thrown up to intimate couple relationships as long-established projective systems are turned on their heads, with the roles of carer and cared for often inverted. This is particularly true in relationships in which one partner is suffering from dementia, and for which therapeutic containment takes on a particular meaning. The workshop will consider psychoanalytic models of the mind, as well as Andrew Balfour’s pioneering work at Tavistock Relationships in developing a therapeutic intervention for couples where one partner has dementia. It is suitable for psychotherapists working with individual clients and couples as well as for trainees.

(London) Brexit: Who is Afraid of Group Attachments?

Organisation: Institute of Group Analysis
First date and time: From Saturday, 26 January 2019 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 26 January 2019 @ 15:30

Description:
Brexit means what? More than two years on … we still do not know. So we’ve decided to organise a workshop to explore Brexit, or otherwise, from an attachment and group-analytic perspective.

John Bowlby, a quintessentially English gentleman, conceived attachment as a primary instinctual force for meaningful human connectedness, essential for our physical and emotional survival. Healthy attachment evolves from individual to group bonding. The UK is a mature democracy which has played a significant role on international development. The European Union is a serious, ambitious project in the making – in which increasingly larger, more sophisticated and ever evolving forms of group collaboration, and of group attachments, are being tried. Who is afraid of that? Is Brexit a ‘mutation’ to maximise survival of the fittest or the richest? Is survival of the other a threat to my survival?

This workshop will be open and inclusive, with the aim of creating an atmosphere where dialogue and mutual understanding can be cultivated. Delegates will be encouraged to take an active part in the reflective space provided by professionally conducted, small and large, discussion groups.

(London) When Hope Is Lost: The Impact of Perinatal Loss, Infertility and IVF on the Couple and the

Organisation: Tavistock Relationships
First date and time: From Saturday, 2 February 2019 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 2 February 2019 @ 16:00

Description:
Many parents find it difficult to recover from trauma associated with the perinatal period, and the loss of an infant can result in severe depression, feelings of isolation, loss of hope, and relationship breakdown. A perinatal loss may be as traumatic to the couple as the death of a young child, even though the lost baby has not been known. This full-day workshop will consider the meaning of perinatal loss and the death of a young child for the parents as well as for any siblings. Particular attention will be given to the difficulties that can be experienced by younger siblings who can feel as if they have been born in the shadow of death, and can carry this experience with them into adulthood. The workshop for individual, group, family and couple psychotherapists and counsellors will also focus on the impact of infertility and IVF on the individual and the couple, and the difficulties that can be evoked especially after multiple failed pregnancies. It is suitable for couple, individual and child psychotherapists. Trainer, Marguerite Reid, has a wealth of experience in working with individuals and couples who have perinatal mental health problems. She works with women and couples during pregnancy and during the postnatal period, as well as with children who have been parented by couples struggling with these difficulties.

(London) Working with Anger from a Schema Therapy Perspective

Organisation: Schema Therapy School
First date and time: From Monday, 4 February 2019 @ 09:30 to Monday, 4 February 2019 @ 16:30

Description:

Schema therapy acknowledges the richness of anger, its multifaceted functions and origins, and its enormous healing potential.

In schema therapy terms, anger can emanate from several different ‘modes’, most notably: the bully attack, angry protector, and angry child modes.

Working with anger requires the therapist to first make an accurate assessment of the ‘mode in action’, as well as to identify and attune to the unmet need unpinning the mode. The therapist might then work directly with a ‘part of the self’ that is either overwhelmed by anger or overshadowed by anger.

During this highly interactive workshop participants will learn how to disentangle the various expressions of anger, to link these to core modes and schemas, convert unproductive or destructive anger to constructive assertiveness, as well as to use their own emotional reactions to their clients’ anger to hone the conceptualisation.

Live demonstrations of all core methods (imagery, chair work, empathic confrontation) for working with anger will be demonstrated and practiced and there will be time given to reflecting on therapists’ own schema activation in relation to anger directed at them.

(London) In Pursuit of the Truth: Questions of Authenticity with ‘False Self’ Couples & Individuals

Organisation: Tavistock Relationships
First date and time: From Saturday, 2 March 2019 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 2 March 2019 @ 16:00

Description:
This study day will explore the rich concept of the false self, tracing it from Donald Winnicott to James Fisher, and examining the ways in which it can be thought about in the consulting room. Winnicott believed a false self could be set up through a lack of maternal holding. If the mother fails to meet her infant’s gesture, instead substituting her own in its place, the infant can grow up feeling compliant rather than authentic. Fisher applied these ideas to the couple relationship, describing the challenge many individuals encounter in functioning as a couple – the capacity to face one’s own truth, and also to acknowledge that another person may see things differently. The idea of a false self has taken on a particular resonance in contemporary times, as technological advances threaten to take us away from authentic connections with ourselves and others. The day will reengage with the psychoanalytic thinking behind this reality, and consider the ways in which we position ourselves internally to defend against intimacy. It will include presentations on both theoretical and clinical material, and there will be consideration of the difficulties that can be thrown up in the therapeutic pursuit of the truth. Participants are asked to bring material for discussion. Trainers: Martha Doniach, psychoanalytic psychotherapist; and Kate Thompson, couple psychoanalytic psychotherapist.

Description:
What does this course have to offer?
The course will help participants begin to develop a psychosocially-informed awareness of counselling and psychotherapy practice in a pluralistic world.

What does “psychosocially-informed awareness” mean?

• Reflecting on how the social and cultural context impacts our work as counsellors and psychotherapists

About this course:
This four-day course explores some of the assumptions that underpin counselling and therapy, including:

• Thinking about the roles others play in the development of self and other, how we construct senses of self and other, and the purposes of these identities
• Exploring the ways, we think about the things we struggle with in life (including the role of diagnosis and mental illness/wellbeing)
• Opening up spaces to look at how we construct our roles as counsellors and therapists, from a range of counselling modalities, within the social and cultural context.
• This course draws on developments in counselling and psychotherapy literature and psychosocial studies. Reading material will be given ahead of each day.

First date and time: From Friday, 8 March 2019 @ 17:30 to Friday, 8 March 2019 @ 21:30

Description:
The Introductory Weekend in Group Analysis offers you the opportunity to gain a valuable insight into how our personal and professional groups function and can help to enhance your effectiveness in all group situations. During the course of the weekend, you will learn the basics of the group analytic perspective by taking part in several experiential groups and a theoretical lecture delivered by an established group analyst. You will have the chance to learn about yourself in a group situation and to observe group processes from the ‘here and now’ experience of participation in a group.

The weekend will benefit health professionals, organisational managers and individuals, and will be useful for anyone interested in learning about group dynamics on a professional and/or personal level.

We will provide light refreshments on Friday evening and a buffet lunch on Saturday, both are included in the fee. The experiential nature of the course means it is essential that participants attend for the whole duration.

Why Group Analysis?
Group Analysis is a powerful therapeutic medium that focuses on the relationship between the individual and the group, emphasising the essentially social nature of human experience. As a method of treatment group analysis offers a treatment approach that recognises how emotional, behavioural and psychological emerge in the context of our social groups. Carefully constituted group analytic groups have a long record of helping people with personal problems and in promoting personal development.

The Group Analytic approach has profound implications for Group Work and organisational practice in a wide range of health, social and educational settings. Our philosophy is that as personal difficulties arise in groups; groups are the best place to explore, understand and try and resolve them.

Organisation: ESTD-UK / FPP / TEWV NHS FT
First date and time: From Thursday, 21 March 2019 @ 09:00 to Thursday, 21 March 2019 @ 18:00

Description:
The European Society for Trauma and Dissociation – UK network, (ESTD-UK) in partnership with First Person Plural, (FPP) and the Tees, Esk and Wear Valley NHS Foundation Trust would like to welcome you to our second, two-day 2019 Spring Conference in York. Working closely with the NHS ensures these two days provides a forum for the Trusts who have started to address’ good practice’ in developing their trauma informed work and allowing them to share their experiences and how they are managing the many challenges this area of work brings. The Plenaries and Workshops provide an opportunity to understand and address the specific needs of those who experience a high level of complex dissociation including dissociative identity disorder - DID. The ESTD-UK and FPP have a long, well established working relationship that has demonstrated the advantages of clinicians and those with the lived experience working collaboratively in many ways including providing training. There will be a wealth of practical and theoretical information at all levels about working with children and adolescents acknowledging the growing expertise in this area and accommodating this growth of understanding. You will hear how appropriate guidelines and therapeutic interventions are developing, the growing inclusive approach between the NHS and those in private practice and the stigma and many challenges that those involved in this work and those who live with DID still experience and much more. The workshops offer a variety of levels appreciating that we now have much better trauma informed clinicians who want to be able to share at this higher level of expertise. Many of the workshops reflect this. This conference is for anyone who has an interest in or is already working with trauma whether in private practice, the voluntary or the statutory sector. There will be plenty of time for sharing and networking which we know from past experience is an important part of the whole experience. “I have just attended the national Conference in Norwich and wanted to say that the beauty of its warmth and depth of kindness amongst the people and the common desire to bring healing and hope and change. No one seemed to be championing their own greatness and there was a real sharing of common ground. There was a wealth of experience and a huge selection of talks and workshops to choose from” This statement from one of the workshop presenters in 2017 encapsulated what the organisers had hoped to achieve; please come along, make sure you book early to make full use of the offers, and help us to do this again. We look forward to you joining us and becoming part of the growing network bringing about real and sustainable change for this previously marginalised group of people.

Based on the Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity (GSRD) resource which Meg-John has written for the BACP, this day takes attendees through the diversity of relationship styles which are common in the UK today, and how to work with clients across them.

There will be a particular focus on openly non-monogamous relationship structures. This is because these are likely to be less familiar than monogamous structures to therapists - and they are increasingly commonly presenting in the therapy room. We will also touch on various types of monogamous and monogamish relating, as well as soloness and singledom, and relationship styles and identities which don’t involve any kind of romantic love.

The day will be situated in the current cultural context of shifting relationship rules which we will explore more broadly in terms of the impact that this has on our clients.

That is why guided imagery is one of the most powerful psychotherapeutic tools known. A one-day course CPD Certificate (6 hours)

A training experience offering participants practical insight and knowledge into the negative side of empathy which leaves practitioners vulnerable to absorbing too much of the client’s energy/story and experience thereby dissolving some edges of the interpersonal boundaries between self and other.

Emotional contagion leads to the potential for overwhelm, vicarious and secondary traumatic stress. This can also contribute to relational difficulty and conflict with clients through re-enactments. Participants are invited to explore the somatic indicators and early warning signs of overwhelm and compassion fatigue. This workshop explores aspects of self-care which entails developing some important strategies for optimising health and wellbeing to prevent burnout and maintain optimal relational fitness for role.

Other topics of focus will include somatic transference and countertransference. Enhancing therapist self-care is examined through laughter, play, self, compassion, support, quality rest and body wisdom through somatic awareness. There will be emphasis on making best use of clinical Supervision to support self-care.

(London) Mentalization Based Family Therapy and How to use it Systemically With Couples and Families

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
First date and time: From Saturday, 11 May 2019 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 11 May 2019 @ 16:00

Description:
Mentalization is a model of therapy which seeks to promote more attuned and compassionate communication between us. It can be a very helpful approach when we are working with clients with difficulties in emotional regulation either parents and children or couples.

Emotional regulation is more difficult during stressful periods such as parenting teenagers or with couples who are experiencing conflict or avoidance of talking about difficult issues.

MBFT has its roots in attachment theory and neuroscience. Under emotional stress our capacity to think is compromised and we tend to fall back on earlier patterns of managing difficult situations. If our earlier attachment relationships were insecure or threatened in some way, we can lose the ability to imagine the others’ position thoughtfully, this makes it more difficult to negotiate a way through difficulties. For all of us this happens from time to time but for some it becomes an entrenched patterns of miscommunication and heightened reactivity leading to enormous amounts of distress. It is associated with many emotional and behavioural difficulties in teenagers such as self harm, depression and anxiety.

The workshop will introduce the model including its' theoretical roots and help participants identify techniques to promote mentalization.

Organisation: Institute of Group Analysis
First date and time: From Friday, 14 June 2019 @ 10:00 to Friday, 14 June 2019 @ 16:00

Description:
Group analysis offers a helpful multi-perspectival lens through which to improve our understanding and capacity to work with challenges that emerge in groups. The Institute of Group Analysis (IGA) are pleased to introduce, Groups in Action, an exciting and innovative new series of one-day training courses. Founded over 50 years ago, the IGA is the UK’s leading provider of group psychotherapy and Groupwork training.

Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) is a motivational and integrative approach to working with shame and selfcriticism, manifest in a broad range of psychological and emotional difficulty. As a model of human suffering and wellbeing, CFT is now being used not only in a wide range of clinical settings, from primary care to secure forensic services, but also in educational and organisational settings.

CFT and Group Analysis meet in the commitment to offer effective psychotherapeutic interventions to those who have suffered multiple and complex traumas and those who experience high levels of self-blame, self-criticism and shame.

This training has been designed for practitioners, therapists and clinicians who wish to provide a more accessible pathway for this group of individuals. The trainers will offer an overview of the CFT framework and components of group analytic practice that have been brought together to form an integrative model for complex trauma. The day will combine a theoretical overview of Group Analysis and CFT along with practical suggestions for developing, running and managing the dynamics of long-term trauma focused group psychotherapy.

There will be experiential exercises throughout the day, focusing on developing personal practice in self compassion and delivering psychotherapeutic interventions.

Learning outcomes:
This training day will support participants to:
• integrate compassion focused therapy theory and
technique into group-work
• develop their knowledge and practice of group psychotherapy
• engage with the personal practice of self-compassion

(London) Working Therapeutically With The Possibilities of Uncertainty

Organisation: Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training
First date and time: From Saturday, 2 November 2019 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 2 November 2019 @ 16:00

Description:
Current issues such as global political instability, climate change, and Brexit lead to increased levels of anxiety and confusion. Both pundits and experts constantly remind us that 'we are in an entirely novel set of circumstances wherein we can assume nothing and cannot rely on past solutions.' The disturbing degree of unease and confusion being felt by many - not least, our clients - highlights the extent to which an unwanted and undesirable uncertainty permeates throughout our lives.

And yet, among the various contemporary psychotherapeutic models, the existential approach emphasises the inevitability of uncertainty. As a consequence of the approach's foundational assumption of the inter-relatedness of all beings, no one focus-point (such as "I") can ever fully determine with complete and final certainty what and how the world will be, or others will be, or even "I" will be at any point in time. The inevitability of uncertainty and the openness of existence it proclaims alert us that, any moment, all prior knowledge, values, assumptions and beliefs regarding self, others and the world in general may be "opened" to challenge, reconsideration or dissolution. Paradoxically, existential therapy argues that uncertainty remains a constant given of human experience rather than reveal itself to be just an occasional and temporary consequence arising out of unusual circumstances.

If existential thought is correct in this view, what might it have to tell us about the practical aspects of working with uncertainty as psychotherapists and counsellors? Might significantly creative possibilities open themselves to therapists who are are willing to embrace uncertainty as a pivotal expression of who they are and what they do?

(London) Shrinks love talking about sex – or perhaps not? What do we need to feel better equipped to address exual concerns and issues with our clients?

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

Description:
The Workshop:

• How much is it useful/ necessary to be talking about sex in therapy?
• How might our own histories be impacting on how we approach or avoid this subject in the consulting room?
• Might we risk inflaming an erotic transference?
• How is this different for male and female therapists? For gay or straight therapists?
• How do we help clients think about desire and disappointment, or think about their sexual development and identity?

Our trainings do not always prepare us well to think with clients about the physicality of sex. We may feel that we should be cool about sex but often we feel the opposite. In this workshop I aim for us to create a safe environment for reflection and curiosity – about the work and about ourselves.

Workshop cost: £125 + booking fee (20% discount + booking fee for Wimbledon Guild counsellors ONLY you must purchase your ticket via your Wimbledon Guild email address).

Limited Early-bird discount of 15% + booking fee available until 16th August 2019 or until sold out.
