Pluralistic Counselling and Psychotherapy: Professor Mick Cooper in Stockport on 14 Mar 2014

Pluralistic counselling and psychotherapy: A CPD workshop with Professor Mick Cooper

Our next CPD event is on Friday 14th March 2014. This is a workshop on Pluralistic counselling and psychotherapy lead by Professor Mick Cooper of Strathclyde University.

Pluralistic counselling and psychotherapy: A workshop with Professor Mick CooperPluralistic counselling and psychotherapy endeavours to make the most of the vast body of methods and theories that exist in the world of counselling and psychotherapy. It acknowledges and celebrates difference across the therapeutic spectrum and attempts to draw together therapists from all orientations. Mick Cooper approaches the subject from a humanistic and progressive position that favours a collaborative and anti-oppressive way of working with clients. He argues that there are multiple pathways of change and that some pathways are more suited to a specific client than others.

Cooper’s approach to pluralistic counselling and psychotherapy is outlined in the book he co-authored with John McLeod (Sage, 2011). In this book, the authors map out the foundations for a pluralistic approach, the building of a collaborative therapeutic relationship and the way in which the therapy links to the goals of the client. They then focus on the therapeutic process, and look at the resources available to facilitate change and the research that illuminates the approach. It is, they believe, a new paradigm that requires a new model of training, supervison, professional development and service delivery.
