(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

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.

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

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

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

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Wednesday, 19 September 2018 @ 09:30 to Wednesday, 19 September 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
A one-day course with tutor: Denise Winn... Depression is now so common that all health professionals need to know how to lift it – especially as it can lead to suicide. This workshop has saved lives. Until recently, depression was little understood, but now you can absorb the easy-to-learn psychological techniques that lift it quickly ... even in the severest cases. Antidepressants (though dangerous) can play a role in reducing symptoms, but research shows that appropriate counselling is the most effective way to lift even the most severe depression, and has a much lower rate of relapse.

(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.

(London) Being in the Moment: How Acting Techniques Can Help the Therapist to be Present

Organisation: Tavistock Relationships
First date and time: From Friday, 21 September 2018 @ 10:00 to Friday, 21 September 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
This experiential workshop draws on acting techniques to focus on what takes place between people in the immediacy of the therapeutic encounter. Attention will be given to what is expressed, revealed and co-created when the script and the theory are put to one side. Participants will have the opportunity to discover and practise exercises developed by the American acting teacher Sanford Meisner (1905-1997). These exercises, mainly based on repetition, are used by actors to access, observe and respond in the moment to affect in others and themselves, and counteract the tendency to make assumptions about meaning. Links will be made with a variety of clinical situations and particularly with Mentalization Based Therapies, which focus on observing interactions and identifying triggers of emotional dysregulation. Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton and James Gandolfini are some of the celebrities who trained in the Meisner method. Professional actors will join us for the workshop and will work with the participants so that everyone can experience being both observer and actor – a position we occupy daily in the different set-up of the consulting room. Perrine Moran will bring insights from the point of view of her work as a psychodynamic individual and couple psychotherapist. Scott Williams, who trained with Sanford Meisner himself, will bring his long and rich experience in the theatre.

(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) Moving From Self-Harm to Self-Belief... Proven Techniques for Reducing and Preventing Self-Harming Behaviours

Organisation: Human Givens College
First date and time: From Tuesday, 9 October 2018 @ 09:30 to Tuesday, 9 October 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.

(London) Anger and Creativity - The Dynamics of Aggression in Intimate Family Relationships

Organisation: Tavistock Relationships
First date and time: From Friday, 12 October 2018 @ 10:00 to Friday, 12 October 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
In the therapeutic encounter clinicians are often presented with the struggles their patients have with aggression, whether that be linked to repression and the inhibition of anger or conversely, difficulties with managing overwhelming affect. This workshop will review theories of aggression and explore clinical presentations that illustrate the dynamics of aggression as played out in intimate relationships as well as between patients and therapists. Using attachment and psychoanalytic frameworks, the workshop will enable clinicians to gain a deeper understanding, and an increased capacity to work with this area of difficulty. Unconscious conflicts about aggression can lead to a wide range of presenting problems such as difficulties with autonomy and separation, self-harm and other destructive tendencies. Therapists can learn to identify, understand and work with the defensive strategies that can be employed to avoid conflict. Equally, therapists, daunted by the levels of anger and abuse which some clients express in sessions, can learn how to contain and work with this anger creatively. Understanding projective processes and unconscious anxieties can enable the therapist to orientate their interventions. Techniques derived from mentalization-based therapy (MBT) can help therapists to feel more confident when working with anger and uncontained affect.

From cradle to kitchen: attachment, food and the self

Organisation: WPF Therapy
First date and time: From Saturday, 13 October 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 13 October 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
From the start of life, feeding is a relational experience. The bond between caregiver and infant is brokered in the intimacy of feeding, and our attachment to food is an expression of the relationships we form with other people and ourselves. Our relationship with food expresses something of our attachment histories, secure or insecure: safety and security may be sought in eating or in refusal to eat. This workshop explores how the relationship with food is shaped in early life in the context of our first attachments, and how food mediates relationships with other people and with ourselves throughout life. We will consider the place of food and feeding in maintaining adult social relationships. Eating disorders are considered from an attachment perspective but are not the sole focus. The workshop will be accompanied by Powerpoint interspersed with DVD and clinical material. There will be discussion in pairs and small groups focused on specific questions. Participants will have opportunities to consider the role of food in their own lives and to reflect on their clients’ relationships with food, feeding and nourishment.

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

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.

Organisation: WPF Therapy
First date and time: From Saturday, 20 October 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 20 October 2018 @ 16:00

(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. 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, 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 Therapist’s Tale: the Enduring Influence of Our Own Attachment Histories with Linda Cu

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.

First date and time: From Saturday, 17 November 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 17 November 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
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 and developmental stages.

(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.

(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) 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.

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) 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...

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.

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) 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.
