Lunch and Learn with ICP – SAVE THE DATE

DATE FOR THE DIARY.

 

The Irish Council for Psychotherapy (ICP)

is organizing a  ‘Lunch and Learn’ Seminar hosted and chaired by

Nessa Childers M.E.P.

on the following theme

 

‘Psychotherapy is an effective talking therapy, but do you know who you are talking to?’

 

It will take place on

  Thursday 11th February 2016

12 noon – 2.30pm

In Buswells Hotel, Molesworth Street, Dublin 2

 

Mental and emotional health is essential to our over-all wellbeing and allows us to thrive. Talking therapies are recognized as an effective intervention in managing anxiety, depression or trauma. However, Psychotherapy is often described as ‘the best kept secret’ which means that often people may not know what it can offer; what areas of difficulty it addresses; who it is that delivers the service and what information – including quality assurance – should be sought before engaging in therapy.

The Seminar is aimed at clarifying some of the key questions that arise for people as they look for an appropriate professional to support their mental and emotional health.

There is no charge for the Seminar and a light lunch will be provided, but early booking is essential as places are strictly limited. To book your place, please email admin@nullpsychotherapy-ireland.com or phone 01-9023819.

Why do a Digital Detox?

Here’s what some of our participants said:

‘I never realised just how addicted I was until this weekend, and now I don’t want my phone back – I was so peaceful without it!’

‘I really see now how intrusive it (smartphone) can be, but I feel so much more connected to myself after the weekend, I feel like I want to maintain this feeling – so I’ll definitely be using it less!’

So, how long has it been since you checked your smartphone?

There is no doubt about it, we are more connected that ever. Those little glowing blue screens in our hands allow us to receive and upload information faster than ever before.
Research has shown that smartphone usage releases the chemical dopamine into the brain, causing us to receive a tiny ‘hit’ every time we log on. This, according to research, functions similarly to taking drugs, and the more we do it, the more we crave it.
In no uncertain terms, we become …read more

IAHIP Workshop Schedule – Grief and Loss

Workshop (9) Saturday 28th November 2015 – Grief and Loss

10.00a.m. – 4.30p.m.

IAHIP Office, 40 Northumberland Avenue, Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin

Facilitator: Liz Gleeson

In this workshop, we will look at some of the theories and models of grief and explore their relevance to bereaved clients that we may be working with. In particular, we will explore contemporary models such as the dual process model and continuous bonds. We will meet some of the research that informs best practice for working with bereaved individuals as well as understanding what ‘normal’ grief is and be able to identify complicated grief. We will spend time looking at how to identify complicated grief and gaining insight as to how to support clients with complicated/prolonged grief or those who have bereavement overload. We will do some exercises that will help us to reflect on our own losses and broaden our understanding of what loss is from a variety of different perspectives (LGB, special needs, children, anticipatory grief and disenfranchised grief). We will also explore the use of ritual, symbol and metaphor and how they can be employed to support bereaved individuals, families and communities. There are no pre-requisites except a willingness to turn-up and be open to the experience. This workshop is NOT suitable for someone who has been bereaved in the past 12 months.

Liz Gleeson Biography – In June 2015, Liz achieved a Post Graduate Diploma in Bereavement Studies with the Irish Hospice Foundation and the RCSI (1st Class Hons. TBC end June 2015). She has also completed training in Complicated Grief with Kathy Shear. Liz works in private practice offering bereavement support to individuals and also runs bereavement support …read more
