CPD events 2014 for Counsellors and Psychotherapists – March to June
We have now finalised our programme for the first half of 2014. All events will be at Cheshire Conferences and Events at Edgeley Park Stadium in Stockport. For further information on any of the events listed, click on the pictures.
Pluralistic counselling and psychotherapy: A workshop with Professor Mick Cooper on Friday 14th March. Professor Cooper will describe a new paradigm in therapy. It is an approach outlined in the 2011 book he co-authored with John McLeod. He will cover the foundations of a pluralistic approach; building a collaborative therapeutic relationship; linking the trerapy to the goals of the client; and the therapeutic process itself.
Trauma in Counselling and Psychotherapy on 11th April. Jonathan and George of Mindsite will repeat this popular event, which looks at trauma and the ways we may work with it in therapy. It argues that direct approaches are not always effective, and can be damaging.
Myth in Counselling and Psychotherapy on 16th May 2013. Donna Savery will lead a highly interactive session on the use of myth in therapy. Donna calls on her background as a theatre director and academic. Her recent research on working with myth in existential relationship therapy was published in Emmy van Deurzen’s recently published book ‘Existential perspectives on relationship therapy’ (van Deurzen, 2013)
Clean Language: David Grove’s model updated on 12th June. James Lawley and Penny Thompkins will describe and demonstrate the use of clean language in counselling, psychotherapy, coaching and consulting. David Grove originally developed clean language to resolve traumatic memories. The presenters have codified and extended the approach for wider use. This is called Symbolic Modelling and is documented in their 2000 book and website.
We are already thinking about the second half od the year, and we will start again in September. If you have any suggestions then please let us know.
