We enjoyed a stimulating hour with Stephanie Cooke as she bought her experience and knowledge of the interface between Neurobiology & Psychotherapy in the service of emotional regulation.
Steph has such a warm and passionate presence and was able to translate some very technical and challenging concepts into accessible language and concepts with direct application to working with clients in the field of Psychotherapy and Counselling.
In this discussion Steph talked about the importance of brain development, in the service of self regulation, and the impact of the lack of emotional attachment on the developing brain.
Steph also touched on some of the latest theoretical views about this subject.
Psychologist Maureen O’Hara who was a long time colleague of Carl Rogers, and Graham Leicester, Director of International Futures Forum, conversation with John Wilson about the central ideas in their new book Dancing at the Edge: Competence, Culture and Organization in the 21st Century.

This online conversation is with Lynette Green and Max Hope. Lynette is a person-centred psychodramatist and Max is a person-centred educator.
During this online discussion, they talked about the benefits of using psychodrama as a tool for learning as well as their own views of person-centred education. They addressed the dilemmas of being open to being led by a group whilst also having their own agenda (in terms of content and method).
Wilderness Psychotherapy is at the cutting edge of psychotherapy. Child at Heart works with the Four Shields, an earth based ecopsychology model that acknowledges the cycles and seasons in nature and how they affect our lives, in other words, we show our clients how to work with the teachings of the land.
We take young people through the Four Shields, which are a psychological and physical map of all nature, of which we are a part. We bring young people into Holding the Space, a radical approach to working with trauma and abuse. This is a therapeutic model that focuses on the building of community and on non violent conflict resolution.
Katherine and Carol engaged in a dialogue about why they offer counselling to children and young people and why they train others to do the same. The dialogue was inspired by their own discussions around what they could offer to the conference as trainers and practitioners.
The Presentation is concluded by a thought provoking and moving story that led to an audience discussion about the practical and political issues around working with Children & Young People.
This presentation was a reflective end to a conference packed full of learning about working with Children & Young People.
I’ve worked for many years with teenagers labelled as angry, and poorly behaved, first as a teacher, and currently as a counsellor. I’ve developed ‘Working with Anger’ groups, aimed at teenage boys. We make sure they feel heard. And then we support them as they begin to take more control over their lives, even under difficult circumstances in school and at home.
We don’t have a magic wand, but we’ve a track record in helping young men engage with school more effectively!
Often children and adolescents will not make the decision themselves to attend therapy. Professionals or caring adults choose. The initial step of working with this client group is to engage them in the therapeutic relationship and this short workshop will consider how to engage and build the therapeutic relationship. I will consider rage, shame and conflict within the relationship and how to engage child and adolescent clients.
In this workshop we will explore the emotional and relational impact of trauma on children. This will include a brief overview of the impact of trauma on brain development and attachment patterns. Through the use of clinical examples we will demonstrate how to work effectively and safely with trauma.

Giles has written and presented on the “Educator as Cultivator”, reflecting on his experience moving with his family from London to live and work on a farm and the steep earning curve he experienced.
Considering the role of cultivation in his own experience of learning, holding space in a way that supported him through the shame of conscious incompetence, was vital in sustaining his development.
Giles describes the need for the cultivator to be grounded in the learning relationship and be able to act courageously on our intuition that something “may be amiss”, while not intervening in a way that diminishes the learners energy and autonomy.
Nicola has started and managed two counselling services and also runs a successful private practice from home.
In the interview Nicola will shared her experience and learning gained from starting and managing two counselling services and set us three questions for discussion.
This presentation was delivered in front of the EAPA 2012 Conference in South Africa
