September 29, 2017 @ 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm BST
Heather Dale

There is a pivotal point where the therapist can become convinced that they know what is ‘best’ for their client, albeit at an unconscious level. This may lead to a rupture in the therapeutic relationship. Through the use of vignettes this paper will explore the signs (red flags) that allow practitioners to become aware that they have lost sight of the virtue of humility necessary for safe and ethical practice.

September 29, 2017 @ 8:15 pm - 9:15 pm BST

The debate continues amongst practitioners about whether grief should ever be considered a disorder; many practitioners believe that grief is a normal response to loss and should not be medicalised whilst others believe that grief can become disabling and may need specialist intervention. This talk will consider the current controversy and will discuss the evidence for a complicated grief disorder. Information on recognising when grief has become complicated will be offered along with a discussion of international treatment initiatives and an update on what is happening in Ireland and the UK.

Living Well And Dying Well: Counselling Older People – Helen Kewell

September 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm BST
Helen Kewell

Older people rarely feature in counselling literature, and the very old barely at all. When I was training, I was as perplexed about this as I was disappointed. Counselling older adults, and those at the very end of their lives, is challenging, life-affirming, and, with the rapid rate of ageing, vital work. With this interview, I hope to inspire others to come into this work, using my own experiences to bring it to life, and to open the debate with colleagues already experienced in this area about how we improve access to and uptake of this service.
