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.

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 »
