CPD back in Brighton - Success !

P1100869On Saturday 24th July at the Holiday Inn, Brighton, SCAP held its first in-person CPD event since early in 2020. 

7 participants were treated to Dr Dwight Turner's presentation on Exploring the Intersections of Privilege and Otherness.  We looked at how a sense of identity is formed by infants as they notice and learn to manage their reactions to difference as they move through the various developmental stages. We reflected on the many and various ways in which we might be privileged (not just by the colour of our skins but by our sexual orientation, religion, education, gender, age, physical abilities, etc.) and considered our own personal experiences in these respects.

Covid procedures at the hotel created a sense of safety for me, with our chairs placed well apart and sanitiser widely available; we had the option to wear masks if we felt it necessary (eg. when we engaged in an exercise involving moving across the room) and participants kept a distance when chatting at the end of the morning.   The air conditioning drew the air through the room very effectively (in fact I grew a little chilly later during the morning!) and I for one felt comfortable to meet with others in this way.  I look forward to the remaining programme of SCAP CPD events and meeting with members in person!

AGM & Free Presentation

seminars banner

This year's AGM - Followed by a presentation made by Jay Beichman - The Future of Counselling and Psychotherapy (Live Zoom)

In the aftermath of the Covid crisis how can counsellors and psychotherapists offer real choice for clients/patients? Especially outside private practice in organisations such as the NHS. How do we conceptualise what we offer to providers and the public in a way that is useful for us and them? Is increasing professionalisation and regulation, perhaps another go at statutory regulation (SR) the way forward or more of a hindrance to creative practice? 

These issues and others will be presented by Jay Beichman PhD before plenty of time for questions and discussion.

The presentation will explore the sociohistorical context in which therapy finds itself and the implications for us as practitioners as we emerge out of the Covid crisis.

The AGM & Presentaion is FREE - To register for this and any SCP Seminar all you have to do is go to CPD and Seminars page, scroll down to your chossen event, and click on the register button.

What Really Matters (in Corona times)?

Video - What Really Matters (in corona times)? 

The CPD scheduled for the 15th of this month has unfortunatley been postponed - Instead, there is a video presentation to members available now (click on details for more information - log in and go to the 'Resource Library' section).

Ernesto Spinelli and Greg Madison, both existential psychologists living in the UK, discuss their experiences of living and working for the past year under lockdown and then now as restrictions ease and 'normality' can return. 

The video explores some of the deeper significance of daily life events, the opportunity for some uncomfortable existential insights, and a few ideas about the future of therapy after a year online. We also wonder what the future holds and our ambivalence about the long-term implications of the coronavirus pandemic.

Welcome to Rhiannon our latest CPD Tutor

5fd1366e3303a pic of me

 'If you’re thinking of counselling couples, come ‘into the trenches’ with me, it’s beyond worthwhile, I promise you.

It feels like vital work now in the swirl of cultural chaos. This is work at which I think I’ve most excelled, as the demands align with my character. I’m all about Reality, tearing down limiting Comfort Zones, honest challenge, and emotional honesty, so don’t expect a dry academic lecture.

I studied an esoteric, brand new, holistic, spiritual, process-oriented psychotherapy based in the USA which drew widely from the theories including Gendlin on Focusing, Levine on trauma, NLP, Gestalt, Buddhist core process, Sufi and Native American spiritual philosophy, BodyMind theories from Hakomi and Chiron, and the principles of nonviolence and following the process.

Couple work needs a greater dimension of course, but the process is still my core approach.

My spiritual driver is always to have the courage to embrace conflict, and explore and resolve it.

As the Late Petrushka Clarkson said, in all human existence, Relationship Is Everything.

I’m a Big Picture person, a student of The Macrocosm, a follower of Change, both agency and spontaneous, and my core role on this Planet has always seemed to be to communicate, whether through journalism, which I did professionally for twenty years, or songwriting and performing, which I’ve done alongside both my professional careers for half a century. Therapy should not exist in a bubble, we are all in the World and this is our contribution.

We should all be on a mission to inspire, evoke, and yes, sometimes provoke, and right now, in the chaos of the World, be there to facilitate the process for people with relationship struggle, whether it’s to build, enhance, or mindfully dismantle them.

I come from a comically dysfunctional, ‘working class’, extended family and watched my miserable parents battle it out for 25 years until my father died. My self assigned role was to ‘hold the space’ for all that conflict, I couldn’t fix it, but it gave me transferable skills.

I myself bounced from dreadful relationship to dreadful relationship right from my early teens, and it took me half a lifetime to figure out how this was supposed to go.

In no other therapeutic context is it more crucial that the Personhood and Beingness of the therapist can provide a ‘holding’ space for the tricky couple dynamic so I’m delighted to have the chance to inspire others to find that place in themselves.

I’m not about the academics. People can read and research for themselves. I’m about the How of Process and the skills ‘in the room’. I won’t be offering further reading, it’s not in my intended remit for this seminar.(February 2021) I’m more a follower of Yalom than Dryden."
