Supervision Study Day with Sally Openshaw
It is slowly being recognized by professional bodies that supervisors need specific CPD to enhance their role. The day will focus on our experiences, our difficulties, our ethical management, our celebrations and our shared learning from this discussion and dialogue. Participants will need to bring their openness to review work in a relational way. A supervisor colleague from Spain will manage a relational group process on difficulties that we experience and how that relates to us as people. Ethical debate on real supervision challenges will be facilitated. The day will also include a journal club to review a current piece of research on supervision and its application in our practice. There will also be a session on celebration using creative supervision as part of the day.

Myths Workshop with Alison Huxtable
Myths of the world are alive and well, and still communicating their wisdom to us. Myths are narratives which invite us to approach the big questions in our lives. For this reason I believe they can be helpful to us in our work with our clients. They offer guidance about the great forces that can stand behind our clients and indicate possibilities for the successful passage through stages in life. As practitioners we can borrow the ideas and language of myth, whether to gain additional insight for ourselves in supervision, or to use more directly with our clients to enable and support our clients’ progress.

Working with Somatic Methods and the Fundamentals of Safety with Loraine Cairns
This will be the first in a 2018-19 mini series of Towerhouse Counselling CPD workshops exploring aspects of somatisation and working with somatic methods. The series will share 3 overarching objectives
• To explore and deepen our understanding of how psychological distress becomes somatised into physiological sensations and symptoms
• To develop the skills to work safely and appropriately with a range of somatic methods and techniques within the framework of our core modality
• Through (I) & (II) above, to enhance our own and our clients’ integration of the mind-body (psychosomatic) dimension of our lived experience.
