  • For each participant to have opportunities to focus on the successes and barriers experienced in applying the model in their practice via supervision or consultation about their work with families or their specific practice.

Despite exuberance of theory, there is an enduring gap between psychotherapy/counseling practice in the consulting room, and its empirical basis.  We know from quantitative research that therapy works and that no one modality of therapy is consistently and demonstrably superior.  The precise ‘mechanisms of change’ remain obscure, but recent advances in relational neuroscience pinpoint brain processes that foster secure as opposed to insecure attachments, with significant implications for therapeutic practice.  These include

·       bio-behavioural synchrony (Feldman)

·       sensitive periods (Tottenham)

·       the capacity to tolerate not-knowing or ‘unbound energy’ (Friston)

In this master class Professor Homes will explore how knowledge of these principles can influence the minutiae of therapeutic practice, especially sensitivity, affect regulation, shaping therapeutic dialogue and a stance of radical acceptance.  

The exploration of these themes will be interspersed with time and space for ‘live supervision’, where participants can discuss how they apply to their own practice.

Inter-Parental Conflict and its Consequences: Maintaining or Breaking Negative Intergenerational Patterns - A half day seminar with Susanna Abse

Conflict between parents both openly hostile or cold and chronic has been shown to have long term impacts for children’s development and wellbeing. When faced with poorly resolved conflict between their parents, not only are children likely to experience stress, anxiety and emotional insecurity but also to develop internal working models and unconscious attributions that affect their lives and relationships throughout childhood and in adulthood. Drawing on research and intervention studies, and using attachment and object relations frameworks, the seminar will provide opportunities to consider the practice implications of research for working with individuals, couples and families to break negative intergenerational cycles.

Synopsis

 

Whilst a great deal has been written about passionate states of being, sexuality, jealousy, envy, guilt and reparation, what has received less attention is the lack of passion, the mindless and empty states which certain passive clients present to us.

 

In this workshop Anne will be exploring the difficult territory in the therapeutic progress with a client when things seem to  grind to a halt and we  seemingly meet passivity, lack of curiosity and lack of hope.  This raises a  difficult issue, is the client despairingly giving up on us, on therapy and / or herself? While we are cognizant that our therapeutic response needs to be different in such situations – how do we differentiate between defensive retreat and despair?

Spaces will be limited for this workshop and early application is advised in order to avoid disappointment.

Rapid developments in electronic communication have revolutionized the ways in which we transmit and receive information across geographical locations and time zones.  Innovations in digital technology have significantly impacted upon the way we think, behave, communicate and work.  In the field of psychotherapy, clinicians have increasingly begun to use digital media not only to exchange information and communicate with one another, but also to using its various forms for supervision and for working with clients.

Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) has been developed by Dan Hughes over the past twenty years as a model of therapy for developmentally traumatized children and their families based on a theoretical understanding of attachment and intersubjective relationships. More recently Dyadic Developmental Practice has been recognized as providing a framework which extends beyond the therapy to also provide network, school and parenting support.

This four day training introduces DDP and the broader framework of Dyadic Developmental Practice within which the therapy is applied. The core components of DDP will be presented and explored through discussion and experiential exercises.

The level one training will provide the knowledge and practice necessary for attendees to apply DDP principles to their work with developmentally traumatised children and their families.

The level one training introduces a framework for therapy and parenting of developmentally traumatized children and is the starting point for certification as a DDP practitioner.

The main text to support this training  is Attachment-Focused Family Therapy Workbook by Daniel A. Hughes, Norton, 2011.  It is recommended that attendees purchase this book.

 

Who should attend?

This training is suitable for professionals who work with children and young people who have experienced developmental trauma. It is suitable for therapists, counsellors, mental health professionals, social workers, residential workers and other interested professionals who work with developmentally traumatized children and their families.

Based on the principles of raising adult presence, developing supportive networks and promoting reconciliation, Non Violent Resistance (Haim Omer) is an exciting new approach for changing relationships where there are complex difficulties around aggression, destructive and self-destructive behaviour in children, adolescents and young adults. This family and community approach offers parents, carers and teachers new ways of dealing effectively with the problem, while improving the often frayed relationship with their child. By developing a focus on unmet need, NVR looks beyond the behaviour to help children develop more secure attachments and value and feel valued in their key relationships.
