Counselling Christianly:  How to be Christian and Professional in twenty-first century Australia.

Over the last several decades, there has been much debate, and perhaps more than a little confusion, over the integration of theology and psychology and the differences among Christian counselling, pastoral counselling and pastoral care.  In Australia, these differences are not clearly defined, leaving professional counsellors, who are also Christians, often feeling constrained by a registering system whose secular values may conflict with their own.  This presentation seeks to address the Christian counsellor's  position in both the church and secular contexts by developing a unique model for counselling Christianly.

Anxiety is a feeling fueling thinking patterns ... hence developing skills to work with this feeling.

Current Cognitive and Behavioural Interventions with working with Anxiety focus on stopping the highly reactive and incessant patterns of thinking. However the momentum behind these thoughts and behaviours are seeded within the individual and is entertained as a potential way for the individual to deal with stressors or concerns. Without acknowledging this seed of intent it becomes therapeutically difficult to impact on anxiety within the individual. The Professional Development is aimed at outlining these elements and skills needed to intervene with anxiety.

Neurobiology and counselling – going deeper and further – the science and practice of building resilience.

This workshop will explore the implications of recent neuroscience research on brain development and how it impacts our experiences (both trauma and capacity/resilience). We will explore the neuroscience of empathy – how does the therapeutic alliance inform the brain and what we as counselors can do to enhance the outcomes of the counseling process. The workshop will also focus on cementing skills to work with clients and as such will be an experiential learning process rather than a linear informative process.

Key focus aspects of the workshop:

• Understanding the neuroscience of empathy
• Exploration of memory and the brain
• Implications for counselling to enhance connectivity (the neuroscience of empathy)
• Strategies to enhance empathy
• Unlocking memory systems in the brain
• The science of changing neural networks (memory)
• Building capacity
