18 Apr 2015 09:30 : Balint Workshop

BALINT IN DUBLIN 2015

At Group Analytic Practice

9:30 am- 4:30 pm, Saturday, 18th April 2015

Are you a health professional working with individual clients or patients? Are you interested in thinking about the dynamics of the relationship?

This one day workshop at Group Analytic Practice will be of interest to many, for example, general practitioners, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, counsellors, teachers, and mental health professionals, with or without experience of Balint work.

Balint groups provide a framework for reflecting on your practice. Michael Balint described the clinician as the most potent drug. This work aims to increase therapeutic effectiveness and develop self-awareness; it can also be used very effectively in teaching and training.

Enjoy a day in the centre of Dublin, where you can share and explore your feelings about your patients or clients in the safety of a small confidential group. The day will include workshops where you will have an opportunity to observe or even lead a Balint group, if you have prior experience of participating in Balint groups. It is useful if participants come prepared to think about their relationship with a particular client.

A certificate of attendance and CPD points will be provided at the conference end.

Registration will be at 9:30 on Saturday morning. Numbers are limited so booking is essential. The closing date for the registration is April 10th. The cost for the day is €60, which includes tea and coffee.

21 Feb 2015 09:00 : Conducting Psychoanalytic Research for Publication

Conducting Psychoanalytic Research for Publication

DESCRIPTION This workshop will introduce participants to how to conduct psychoanalytic research for publication. It will be of interest to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychologists and psychiatrists with publishing experience or with an interest in beginning to write for publication, as well as academic researchers and PhD students with an interest in psychoanalysis. What makes research publishable, and how might you go about finding a suitable publisher, journal or editor to publish your writing? Have you written a dissertation as part of your clinical training and wonder how to turn it into an article? Do you think you could draw on your clinical work for publication, but are unsure of how to begin? Are you working clinically and interested in becoming involved in conducting psychoanalytic research, but have little or no publishing experience so feel apprehensive at the prospect? Are you an academic researcher or PhD student and wish to interact with psychoanalytic clinical practitioners to talk about your psychoanalytic research?

The workshop will include twelve psychoanalysts/psychoanalytic psychotherapists, all of whom work clinically and who have extensive experience in publishing and/or editing psychoanalytic research. They represent a number of different traditions of psychoanalysis, including Freudian, Kleinian, Lacanian, Jungian, Independent and object relations. The workshop comprises two panels, followed by time for questions and discussion. Speakers on the first panel will discuss their experiences of writing for peer-reviewed journals, for related clinical disciplines such as psychology and psychiatry, for print and online media, as well as the process by which delegates might transform the research they are conducting into a journal article. The participants on the second panel will discuss writing monographs and editing large research projects. They will give guidance as to how delegates might pitch a book project to a publisher.

Background: Person-Based Cognitive Therapy (PBCT) is an approach to distressing psychosis that seeks to integrate cognitive therapy with mindfulness principles and practice. The workshop will describe how mindfulness and cognitive therapy are formulated within PBCT, and explore how mindfulness principles inform the therapeutic relationship. Using an experiential exercise and client DVD, we will examine how to adapt mindfulness practice for people with distressing psychosis and explore how mindfulness practice needs to support new learning, or insight.

26 Nov 2014 08:30 : St. Clare's & St. Louise's Units Joint Conference 2014

 

What Do I Need to Know? Navigating intimate boundaries & privacy in children’s lives today.

 

Wednesday 26th November 2014


Croke Park Convention Centre, Cusack Stand, Dublin 1


8.30am — 4.45pm 


Registration 8:30 to 9:00


(Parking included in conference fee) 

 

The overarching theme of the conference is to explore how we as professionals can understand and respond thoughtfully to issues around intimate boundaries and privacy in children’s lives today, in particular those who have experienced sexual abuse. The focus will be both practical and reflective. We want to examine how we can make things better for children caught up in the various professional systems designed to respond to child sexual abuse (CSA) concerns. Throughout the day the conference will invite participants to actively reflect and consider the following questions: 
How do we treat children, their experiences and their information in the course of our professional interactions?

How do we understand our role and the role of others in the context of the wider professional system that comes into play when CSA is a concern?

How do we individually and collectively help make sense of this for children and their families?

How do we communicate all of this to children and their families?

Can we look from our various perspectives at what we really need to know about essentially private matters in the lives of children and their families?

How can we practically

06 Dec 2014 09:30 : Into the Other – The Development of Thought

 

Into The Other: The Development of Thought’

 

December 6, 2014, The Teacher’s Club, Dublin

 

 

Disability Psychotherapy Ireland invites you to their third annual seminar, ‘Into the Other: The Development of Thought’.

 

This day is an opportunity to hear and work with two of the leading thinkers in the fields of forensic psychotherapy, autism and disability.  Drawing on their vast experience of treating patients with disabilities, the speakers will examine ways of helping to “bring to life” minds that have been atrophied by trauma, abuse and neglect. 

 

In her keynote paper Dr Alvarez will consider three clinical examples in which a particular form of aliveness was awakened in the context of a deeply interpersonal relationship. By looking at work with children with autism and borderline states, the paper will bring together thinking from the worlds of psychoanalysis, relational psychotherapy and neuroscience to form a cogent theory of levels of interpretation and attunement that can help replace dead thought with alive thinking.

 

 

Tamsin Cottis will draw on Dr Alvarez’s ‘Clinical Levels’ model, describing how long-term integrative psychotherapy can facilitate significant relational change in children and young people who have sexually harmful behaviour.  This paper is an <span
