Friend Not Foe – Developing the Researcher Role in Therapeutic Practice

Conference with Prof Mick Cooper in Cork

Relational counsellors and psychotherapists need to be involved in the development and enhancement of the profession. We need to participate support and develop a research tradition that is respectful of the values of our therapeutic work. We owe it first of all to our clients and then to ourselves to explore and investigate what works in the relational therapies and why? This conference is an opportunity to be part of an ongoing dialogue in the counselling and psychotherapy communities where connections, dialogue discovery debate and mutual learning can take place. Cork Counselling Services presents a 2 day conference, Fri 5th – Sat 6th May 2017, in Marymount University Hospital & Hospice, Cork on this timely topic.
