#AnxietyDepression2018 – The Impact On Children And Young People Of The Medicalisation Of Distress – Sue Lewis
Sue has noticed an increase in the number of young clients she sees who use the language of mental health diagnosis (particularly anxiety and depression) to describe their distress. In this event, Sue will share some thoughts on what might be behind this increase. She will also consider the impact of this way of viewing distress on young people's attitudes to their difficulties and on their expectations of therapy; as well as the wider societal implications and how these might be addressed.Find out more »

In supervision, our supervisees choose what they bring to explore and discuss. Either consciously or unconsciously, they select and edit what they share in supervision for a variety of reasons. Accepting this, the way in which the supervisee engages with us as supervisor, may also reflect what is happening in the overall client system. In this dialogue, we will explore how we use what is happening in our supervision relationship and the impact we have on each other to inform what may be happening between the supervisee and their client, and the system in which the work is taking place.Find out more »
Video is getting more exposure on SM than anything else. However, being visible on video is one of the hardest things because of the feeling of exposure. Getting confident in front of the camera can seem like an impossibility for many colleagues.
I will tell my story of moving from behind the scenes at onlinevents to being regularly in front of the camera at live events and on Social Media. I will also share the ways I have overcome my fears and built my confidence to regularly post videos of my work for everyone to view.Find out more »
I never anticipated losing my entire family, and future family, so quickly. I barely had time to breathe between each passing. I would get up and start going, only to be knocked down again and again. I lost every family member I had over a span of 12 years. Mom. Dad. Grandparents. Babies. Pets. Everyone gone. All I could feel was sadness. Grief. Anger. Loss. I was alone. Until the day I met them again. It was an experience that changed everything, I was given the opportunity to connect and communicate with them from the other side. They explained the journey through this life, how the suffering we experience, the sadness we feel, and the sickness we endure, all lead to love. This book takes you on a journey. Death. Grief. Loss. Laughter. Sadness. Inspiration. Divorce. Miscarriage. Hope. Always ending in Love. My hope for you is that you see the possibility for love in every experience, know you are WiseInside, and become inspired to seek the wisdom and love that surrounds you, both in this world and worlds beyond. The greatest gift this book has given me is the opportunity to see love when all I could feel was pain. It has empowered me to step back and hear the truth from the other side. To stop crying. Start breathing. Start feeling. Start living. Our journey in this life always circles back to LOVE. Love is here for you. Always.Find out more »
What does identity mean? It's more than just the person, it's multi-faceted. It could encompass children leaving home and what does Mum or Dad, or both do next? Does life change? Who am I? Do I see myself as just whatever my job title is? Am I mostly a husband, a wife, or a partner. How far away from who I want to be is my identity?Find out more »
