Neuroscience For Effective Clinical Practice: Reflections On A 2-Day Workshop – Maggi McAllister-MacGregor

September 3 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm BST

Maggi McAllister-MacGregor

Event Details

 

Following on from the live presentations of this workshop over 4 individual sessions, Onlinevents will be presenting this workshop in a 2-day online format in October 19. We are excited about the opportunity to present the workshop in this way as it most closely resembles the format in real life.

In this interview, Maggi and John will be sharing the experience of the first two presentations of the workshop: what weve learned, the feedback from the participants about the online format, and how we may develop other workshops in the future.

We'll be able to give some practical pointers about how to prepare for the 2-day workshop and things to consider during the workshop. If you're considering the 2-day format, tune into the interview for further information.

About Maggi McAllister-MacGregor

 

I've been in practice as a therapist for almost 20 years, in private practice and within the NHS in primary and secondary care. I now work exclusively in private practice. I've also spent a considerable part of this time teaching on a PG Diploma in Counselling and PG Certificate in Counselling Skills at Strathclyde University (2005-2018).

My interest in therapy grew out of my experience as a body therapist, where I was often presented with the bodily expressions of experiences particularly if these were traumatic, which ignited my interest in the body-mind area. This led on to a psychology degree in the 90's, followed by a Diploma in Counselling and an MSC in Counselling & Psychotherapy.

My passion has always been about how our experiences are expressed, not just in our behaviours and cognitions, but also at a visceral level. Our bodies are not separate from our sense of who we are. Yet, I think sometimes this is overlooked, and often, not understood.

My particular interest is in trauma, and how trauma informed work helps to make sense of peoples experiences and how they impact our mental health. An increasing part of my work in relation to this is with couples, and how mental health issues and trauma impact the couples' relationship, often resulting in repeated cycles of behaviour that are detrimental to the relationship and to the partners.

I love learning in relation to my work and this means that it is always exciting and interesting, and I think that is a very privileged place to be. I'm a weird mix of scientific, artistic, and alternative experiences throughout my life which I think has made me open to different ways of understanding myself, others, and the world. I feel that I'm kind of coming back to my roots through my re-ignited interest in neuroscience which is giving us so much more understanding and validation of how therapy works.
