Induction Day for IAHIP members who wish to volunteer on any of the twelve IAHIP sub committees.

IAHIP needs your support and help to meet the increasing demands from our services.

Following on from discussions during our Consultative Forum in November 2016 and during the Friday evening Kaisan before our AGM in March 2017, we have decided to hold an Induction Day for new IAHIP volunteers. It is an opportunity to be initiated into the organisation.

We invite you to attend our first Induction Day which will be held in the IAHIP Offices Northumberland Avenue, Dun Laoghaire on the 16th September 2017.

The daily tasks of IAHIP are carried out by an administration team, without whom we could safely say there would be no IAHIP! The other workings of the organisation are carried out by teams of volunteers who work on the various committees. In total there are 12 committees, with additional sub committees being set up on an ad hock basis from time to time as the needs dictate. Currently there are c 80 volunteers giving of their time to ensure the smooth running of our wonderful organisation.

The twelve committees are:

Governing Body

Ethics

Accreditation

Re-Accreditation

Accreditation & Re-Accreditation Appeals

Supervision and Supervisor Accreditation

TSAC (Training Standards)

Inside Out

Regional Development Officer and Regional teams

Complaints

PTCRC (Psychotherapy Training Course Recognition)

Finance Working Group.

We can promise you an interesting day where you will learn about the history of IAHIP and hear from one committee member from each of the twelve committees. A light lunch will be provided for participants. 6 CPD points will be awarded for attendance.

Please think about attending the Induction Day even if you are not able to volunteer on any of the committees in the immediate future. We look forward to your support at any time in the future.

Symposion, Attachment Perspectives on Borderline Personality Disorder: Implications for Therapy

A one-day workshop with Dr. Gwen Adshead

When: 23 September, 2017

Where: The Metropole Hotel, MacCurtain Street, Cork

Cost: €90.00. Tea and coffee included.

CPD Hours: 5.5

Attachment theory provides useful perspectives on emotionally unstable or borderline personality disorder (BPD); both in terms of how the disorder develops and in terms of therapy. Both clients and therapists may struggle with trust, high levels of negative affect, and therapeutic ruptures. Attachment needs in such clients are highly aroused and often extremely difficult to assuage. Understandably, BPD clients can not only struggle to participate in the therapeutic alliance, but can also view therapists as aloof, uncaring, antagonistic or unsympathetic.

At this practical and interactive workshop that would be relevant for psychotherapists, clinical psychologists, counsellors and psychiatrists, Dr Gwen Adshead will use a perspective based on attachment theory and the tenets of mentalisation to explore:

  • How the psychopathology of emotional instability develops
  • Hostile, helpless states of mind and epistemic trust
  • The relationship with disorganised attachment and its sequelae
  • How this understanding informs our therapeutic approaches
  • How this understanding influences the way we think about families and their therapeutic needs
  • Language and threat: use of ‘why‘ questions, silence and poor mentalising
  • Preventing and managing attachment anxiety

Gwen will not only present material based on published evidence; but also, use group discussion and ‘live supervision’ of cases brought by participants as part of the workshop. Participants are welcome to bring vignettes of clinical material that can be shared and discussed within the normal boundaries of confidentiality.

About the speaker

Dr Gwen Adshead MBBS, MA, FRCPsych MSt is a forensic psychiatrist and psychotherapist. She is trained as a group analyst and in mindfulness based cognitive therapy. She has worked in the NHS with a wide variety of clinical problems: including violence perpetrators, trauma survivors and mothers who struggle to care for their children. She has worked …read more

The Institute of Emotion-Focused Therapy Ireland presents Emotion-Focused Therapy

A one day introductory workshop to the theory and practise of EFT

10-4pm, 2nd Sept 2017

Presented by Ladislav Timulak, PhD

Psychology Society of Ireland (PSI)

Grantham House, Grantham Street, D8, Dublin

Fee: €50 (€40 early bird bookings made before 31/07/2017; €30 students)

The workshop is relevant to students and practitioners of psychology and psychotherapy.

Please note this is an introduction to EFT theory and practise; it does not constitute training in psychotherapy or EFT.

Emotion Focused Therapy is an empirically-supported humanistic treatment that follows in the tradition of Person-Centered and Gestalt psychotherapy, whilst also drawing on contemporary findings from affective neuroscience and research into emotional transformation processes in therapy. There is increasing empirical support for the idea that emotion at its core is an innate and adaptive system that has evolved to help us survive and thrive. EFT seeks to activate this innate, adaptive potential in order to help clients transform problematic, painful or stuck emotional states. Recent years have seen an increase in the popularity of EFT, as well as growing research support for its efficacy with a wide variety of problems (including depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, eating disorders and anxiety). Training in EFT is open to qualified psychologists and psychotherapists and typically involves up to 12 training days supplemented by supervision and the submission of case studies.

Workshop: This workshop is aimed at practitioners who may be interested in pursuing EFT training in the future but wish first to learn more about the approach. The workshop will give an overview of EFT theory and practice, covering such topics as differentiating between primary, secondary and instrumental emotion; maladaptive emotional processes and the relationship between these processes and psychological disorders; assessing client emotion processing styles; case conceptualisation; the role of the therapeutic relationship in EFT; working with emotional avoidance and emotional dysregulation; …read more

Emotion-Focused Therapy for Social Anxiety

A two-day workshop with Prof. Robert Elliott, PhD.

Date: 23rd & 24th Sept, 2017

  • Time:30-5pm
  • Facilitator: Robert Elliott
  • Location: Dublin (venue tbc)
  • Fee: €350 (€300 early bird bookings made before 31/07/2017)

Training is open to counselling/clinical psychologists and accredited psychotherapists/counsellors

The workshop will be aimed at practitioners with EFT training, but also at practitioners not trained in EFT.

Emotion Focused Therapy is an empirically-supported humanistic therapy that follows in the tradition of Person-Centered and Gestalt psychotherapy, whilst also drawing on contemporary findings from affective neuroscience and research into emotional change processes in therapy. There is increasing empirical support for the idea that emotion at its core is an innate and adaptive system that has evolved to help us survive and thrive. EFT seeks to activate this innate, adaptive potential in order to help clients transform problematic, painful or stuck emotional states. Recent years have seen an increase in the popularity of EFT, as well as growing research support for its efficacy with a wide variety of problems, including depression, trauma, eating disorders and anxiety.

Workshop: Social anxiety is a common, disabling difficulty characterized by persistent fear of other people. Recent research indicates that EFT may be particularly well suited to working with clients who present with this difficulty. In this workshop, we will present an EFT theory of SA. We will describe its developmental origins in social experiences which result in primary emotional processes organized around a core sense of a shame-ridden defective self. We will explore how these emotional processes in turn give rise to secondary reactive anxiety that others will see my defectiveness, organized around a coach/critic/guarding aspect of self that, in the process of trying to keep me safe from exposure, inadvertently generates the emotional dysregulation characteristic of SA. Over the course of the workshop we will also present a model (demonstrated …read more
