Continuing Professional Development 

Robert Romanyshyn Saturday 6th July

‘Victor Frankenstein, The Monster and the shadows of technology: The Frankenstein prophecies’
Central London, £110 including lunch
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is a parable for our time, and Robert’s new book to be published soon: Victor Frankenstein, the Monster and the Shadows of Technology: The Frankenstein Prophecies poses eight questions addressed to us by the Monster, who, never named and abandoned by his creator, is exiled to the margins of mind where he haunts the collective imagination.
Participants will:
  • Explore via some examples how psychological suffering—anxiety, depression, eating disorders etc—are systemic and have their roots in cultural issues—injustice, racism, income inequality, ecological crises, etc– and therefore how the therapy room is a cultural therapy
  • Use case examples to explore how symptoms are a vocation, a calling from the margins to remember what has been lost, neglected, silenced and how framing symptoms in this way is the foundation for an ethics that is inclusive of the other within and outside oneself
  • Explore ways of working with dreams as pathways into imagining other possibilities both personally and collectively
  • Examine the field between therapist and patient/client as a complex gestural field where the complexities of love and its shadows are enacted.

Relational Marketing

Therapeutic relationships from the first web search to the first session
with Dr Adam Kincel, Saturday & Sunday 14 & 15 September £190

Although money is embedded in the culture of counselling and psychotherapy, it is rare that we discuss it or even dare to think how to increase our profits. Perhaps we have seen too many examples of profits being valued more than people or marketing designed to manipulate rather than connect. Relational marketing is a way of building therapeutic relationships based on transparency and care for the wellbeing of both the client and the therapist. This training will allow participants to attend to their attitudes toward money and examine marketing possibilities within counselling and psychotherapy.
