Abstract:

The extent of sexual assault and abuse within our community has been high in the last decades and is now more apparent with the various Royal Commission and social movements, most recently being the #metoo movement. Usually, the proportion of people seeking help from counsellors have higher levels of abuse in their lives and it is in this regard that the responsibility is with the counsellor to have the skills and expertise to work therapeutically well with these people. This training will outline the issues and dynamics that are important in counselling those with an abuse history.

Abstract:

Recent research suggests that therapeutic outcomes are often increased when the focus of therapy is not only on presenting problems and diagnoses but also on personal goals. This is an interesting finding because personal goals reflect a focus on client identity or more directly, the “self”. If therapy is about change, then the key to change is the self. Therapy goals can be about problem resolution but also about personal change. Identifying and working with goals in therapy can be a highly effective avenue through which to focus the work of therapy and to facilitate change. This professional development presentation will explore how to work with goals in therapy and ultimately how to facilitate further self-change.

Abstract:

Ethical practice demands that counsellors bracket their own values, and while Christian counsellors can know this explicitly, the practical experience of being confronted with clients who hold very different values and beliefs can create dilemmas for some developing and experienced counsellors. This presentation will introduce some observations on potential difficulties created in trying to integrate a Christian worldview, with the many historical and philosophical influences that have travelled alongside it. Discussion around some of the common dilemmas faced by Christian counsellors regarding spirituality and worldview issues will be invited throughout the presentation with direct questions being presented to the participants (so come ready to participate!).

Special General Meeting will be held at start of meeting (approximately 5 minutes)
