"In the World of the Body” - Processwork’s approach to working with symptoms and illness

Illness and body symptoms often wreak havoc on our plans, and its natural to do everything we can to minimise and get rid of them. We may also have a sense of some value that they bring us. Processwork explores this in depth, based on the understanding that there is a flow of life and wisdom behind these experiences. By unfolding each unique experience with specific and precise awareness methods, we can discover aspects of our deeper selves that we have forgotten or marginalised, and find their meaning in relation to our individual and community life.

Places are limited so early booking is recommended

Please see link to ProcessworkUK website for further information or click here for the course flyer: http://www.processworkuk.org/

AEDP - Essential Skills 1

This course is for Psychotherapists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors, MFT’s, MD’s, Nurses, Creative Arts Therapists, Masters and Doctoral students and interns in mental health and the healing arts and sciences.

About AEDP: Healing-oriented and attachment-based, AEDP’s practice translates current neuroscience and developmental research into moment-to-moment clinical practice. Simultaneously experiential and relational in its in-depth emotional explorations, AEDP’s interventions are deeply rooted in the dynamics of the transformational process that emerges in environments where the individual feels safe and known.

About Essential Skills (ES1): AEDP Essential Skills course will provide practical skills for the application of AEDP as well as a thorough immersion in the theory underlying the practice. Our aim is to teach, in both left-brained and right-brained ways, different types of clinical interventions so that participants will emerge with both an understanding and a felt sense of how to “do” AEDP. Each day’s teaching will include didactic presentations of theory along with video of actual sessions conducted by AEDP Faculty followed by small group experiential exercises.

Central Conference Consultants - Creating Dementia Friendly Services

With increasing life expectancy, the number of older people with dementia is set to rise. Many older people with dementia find themselves enjoying a poor quality of life over which they have no influence. Typically, people with dementia experience increasing isolation, barriers to involvement in the wider community, and increased reliance on other people. Those from Minority Ethnic, Gypsy and Traveller communities experience an even greater dislocation as their clearest memories reflect their early culture and life experiences, but their surroundings do not.

How can this trajectory be altered in a positive way, which goes beyond ‘dementia awareness’?

All organisations which work with older people, their families and carers have the ability to turn their service from dementia-insensitive to dementia-friendly. Creating dementia-friendly services will share research and practice based findings, and the experiences of initiatives which have taken a fresh approach to dementia.

Witnessing resistance to “trauma” and interpersonal & political violence; a social justice approach A workshop with Vikki Reynolds

Visit www.theint.co.uk for details

In this experiential workshop Vikki presents an alternative approach to work with ‘trauma’, from an ethical stance for justice-doing, which focuses on the resistance of victims of violence and oppression. This is as opposed to attending primarily to the details of the trauma, which can be re-traumatizing for both the person and the front-line worker. Resisting the neutral and medicalized language of ‘trauma’, we will name rape culture, torture and political violence, poverty and other systemic contexts of social injustice that are often hidden in individualized talk. Honouring the wisdom of the people we work alongside in their resistance to abuses of power brings forward their agency and wisdom. Locating sites of resistance, and witnessing the resistance capacities of the people we work alongside, can create identities of knowledge, autonomy and strength, as opposed to victim/survivor identities, or other spoiled identities.

You can find many free articles and keynotes on Vikki’s website, www.vikkireynolds.ca

London:                     October 1st & 2nd 2018

 2-day attendance - £200 + VAT

1-day attendance - £110 + VAT

 It is possible to attend the first day of the two day workshop on its own, but it is not possible to attend the second day on its own.
