The Hidden Virtue: Towards a New Understanding of Humility in Counselling and Psychotherapy – 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.Find out more »
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.Find out more »
In this interview, Wendy is in conversation about Ancestral Lineage through a Nature-Based Perspective. She will wonder whether we have forgotten the deep roots and stories in the marrow, the DNA of our bones, thereby feeling disconnected from the depth of our roots in deep Ancestral lineage, both human and more-than-human. Such a forgetting or repressing, contributes to a sense of aloneness, lost, and longing that may haunt us leading to what we might call Depression or Anxiety, and disconnection from our own authentic and Earth-given nature, dignity, and true inheritance.Find out more »
The 4Fold Path map provides an overview of the archetypal whole person, featuring compass points of personhood and unfolding sequences for soul work. It serves as a template for the InnerView Guidance model and allows practitioners to follow multi-level transitions through the therapeutic process.
The series of fourfold sequences can be used as a training and supervision tool, leading to practical interventions involving mindfulness practices, meditation methods, contemplative teachings, and guidance from the Wisdom tradition.Find out more »
The Digital mHealth Conversation Series 2019: How Can Social Media Be Used More Effectively To Bring People With Mental Health Problems Together And Help Them Connect (e.g. In Their Communities), Rather Than Isolating Them In Their Homes? – Philippa Weitz
Over 2017/8 MindTech and the James Lind Alliance identified the Top 10 questions for digital technology in mental healthcare, these were filtered down from an initial 1350 questions, submitted by people with lived experience and health professionals. It is their intention that these will guide the funders of research to ensure that future research is focused on answering these questions and that the potential of digital technology for mental health can be fully realised.
Each conversation will centre around a series of structured questions related to the theme of the digitalmHealth conversation.Find out more »
Since I started in private practice in 2016, I have worked on building an active social media presence, particularly on Facebook, as a way of being visible to potential clients. And it works for me. I receive a significant number of enquiries through Facebook and often these enquiries translate into client work.
John has invited me to explore with him how I use my Facebook presence, what has worked for me, and why I would encourage therapists to use it as a marketing tool.Find out more »
In this Interview in nature/eco-based work, Wendy is in conversation offering another way of dreamwork through a Soulcentric perspective. From this perspective, every dream is an opportunity for transforming the ego in a shift from ego-centric identity to soulcentric identity into living the full mythopoetic, enchanted (and enchanting) human being we are born to be. Wendy is also in conversation about how wandering on the land in conversation with our dreams can deepen our experience of ourselves, the land and the dream leading us to next steps in the conversation between crossing into the Mysteries between nature and psyche on the Journey to Soul. If you have a short, fresh dream, do bring it and we will see if there's a moment to experience the work. Otherwise, there is a two-part workshop in December to be dreamed into for a deeper taste of the work.Find out more »
