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.

Exploring the Dynamics of Attachment in Adult Life™

This is a course over 2 weekends for professionals offering an opportunity to explore their own experience of attachment dynamics in the context of a confidential closed experiential group. The work will be supported by didactic input and time for reflection, application and analysis.

Facilitator: Tessa Normand MIAHIP, ICP

Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapist and Supervisor

Each Course runs over 2 Weekends ( CPD 28 hrs )

either

Course 1 Sat 9th /Sun 10th & Sat 23rd / Sun 24th Sept 2017

or

Course 2 Sat 4th / Sun 5th & Sat 18th / Sun 19th Nov 2017

10.00am – 5.30pm

Venue: 11, Herbert Place, Dublin 2

This course seeks to address the fact that our work requires us to respond to the needs of others and too often we don’t create the conditions to support our own personal and psychological development.

Experiences of care-seeking and caregiving have their roots in infancy and shape our expectations and responses to care-seeking and caregiving in adult life.

As professionals offering a service in the field of mental health we will be aware of the many different ways that people express their care-seeking needs, and how difficult it is sometimes to interpret these accurately and respond. People who have had contradictory experiences of caregiving will often tend to miscue professional caregivers so that any attempt at caregiving can be frustrated.

Participants will be introduced to the Theory of Attached Based Exploratory Interest Sharing (TABEIS)

as developed by Dorothy Heard and Brain Lake and also to the practice of Exploratory Goal Corrected Psychotherapy (EGCP) developed by Una McCluskey.

The dynamics of attachment consist of several goal-corrected systems. These are care-seeking, care-giving, sexuality, exploratory interest sharing with peers, the personal system for self- defence, the internal supportive or unsupportive environments and the personally created external supportive environment. The theory suggests that these …read more

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
