How important is it to pay attention to death in therapy? Should we ignore it, face it, or only deal with it when the client is being confronted with death in the world in some way?
Existential therapists take the view that death is the inevitable shadow side to life and that many human problems are ultimately related to death anxiety. Emmy will speak about ways in which death may figure in the therapy room in a revitalising manner.Find out more »

There is some anxiety around the field of counselling children and young people, particularly around legal issues and safeguarding.
The desire to “get it right” or “not be in trouble” can lead to individuals and organisations coming up with their own simplified and sometimes erroneous versions of an often much messier reality.
In this event, Sue will attempt to examine and “bust” some of the myths that emerge.
Sue would welcome interaction from participants, so if you have come across any “myths” or areas of uncertainty, do bring them along.Find out more »

This talk will focus on these actions and will suggest how such transferences might be contained. Whilst we believe that adverse transferences are uncommon when they are dealt with appropriately, we are also aware that there is a small group of clients who will develop an adverse reaction, and feel harmed, despite the practitioner practicing appropriately. I will discuss how such clients might be identified at assessment so that alternative forms of treatment can be suggested.Find out more »
Meta-analysis shows that medical doctors tend to become less effective the longer they are in practice (Choudhry et al, 2005), and further systematic review highlights how poor physicians are at recognising their own suboptimal performance (Davis et al, 2006). But do these same worrying findings apply to psychotherapists? Some authors argue that they do (Waller et al, 2016) - however, in this lecture, data will be presented suggesting that therapist drift is of little consequence in psychotherapy. This lack of association between adherence to technique and outcome is actually part of a much bigger and more concerning picture - psychological training, supervision and clinical experience all seem inadequate at improving therapist outcome. This talk looks at emerging research suggesting ways of addressing this disturbing situation.Find out more »
