Exploring Bereavement and Adlerian Concepts (CPD Workshop) Saturday 7 May 2022
Presented by Margaret Nimmo-Smith
Counselling CPD Workshops are open to counselling students, practicing counsellors/psychotherapists and other professionals. The workshops can also contribute towards ‘The Advanced Certificate in Counselling Studies’
This workshop will explore the grieving process and relate this to different theories of grief and loss, including more modern frameworks. Each individual grieves differently,
and so we will also examine the Adlerian concept of Life Style in relation to grieving, and reflect on the importance of Social Interest and the Crucial Cs. There will be
opportunity for participants to explore their own responses to grief and loss, so that they are able to work more effectively with bereaved clients.
Brief presentations, interactive demonstrations, small and large group discussion and experiential exercises. Participants will learn most from engaging in the exercises and demonstrations,
which will provide opportunities for active participation, ‘learning through doing’, and exploring ideas, feelings and how what is learned might be applied in practice.
Hot water is available for drinks but please bring your own tea/coffee/milk. Please bring a packed lunch.
