Suicide (CPD Workshop) 11/06/23
Presented by Dr Karen John
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 one-day workshop offers counselling students and practicing counsellors, psychotherapists and other professionals, the opportunity to review and extend their clinical understandings and skills regarding suicide and suicidal behaviour.
The facts, myths and disturbing effects of suicide and suicidal behaviour, along with practice wisdom, will be reviewed. Each participant’s experiences and expressed learning needs will combine to form the way the material and experiential exercises are approached and processed. Participants are invited to bring case material (appropriately disguised) or specific issues relating to their own experience in the counselling/ psychotherapy process. The aim is to make the workshop as relevant and immediate as possible to all.
Hot water is available for drinks but please bring your own tea/coffee/milk. Please bring a packed lunch.
