QLD Professional Development

CCAA(Q) encourages Supervisors to source supervision professional development via the Australasian Association of Supervision (AAOS) which holds events in Brisbane each year.  The AAOS Calendar of Supervision PD can be found at http://www.supervision.org.au/calendar/

Those who experience complex trauma, particularly from a young age, struggle with meaning-making, that is, how to understand the bigger purpose of their lives. For someone who has been abused, their understanding of God – whoever God is – is through the lens of abuse. Self-perception and relationships with others are also interpreted through the lens of abuse. This calls for counsellors who are not only well equipped with the right knowledge and skills, but who are also spiritually sensitive and competent at integrating faith and practice. Witnessing a client’s story can be both a profound experience and a sacred privilege, however it doesn’t come without risks. As Diane Langberg (1997) said, “to sit with suffering is to be a companion to those things that will wage war on the core of your faith.” To do this work, counsellors need to attend to their own personal, relational and spiritual identity.

This workshop will explore the ways in which trauma impacts spirituality and meaning-making, and consider the implications and opportunities for counsellors, both personally and professionally

CCAA has held a special place in the lives of many counsellors over the years. The Association began in Victoria as the Christian Counsellors Association and over the years State Associations were developed. The desire to see a unified group helped to develop the umbrella association of CCAA and the National Council consisting of 2 elected members from the six State Associations. CCAA is a federation of 6 State Associations and therefore has 7 constitutions, 7 sets of accounts, 7 committees and sub committees including the Membership committees. Our committees have worked hard in their commitment to grow the Association which has attracted Christian counsellors around Australia.

After lengthy discussions, it has been agreed by the States to move to this new chapter in the life of CCAA. To restructure CCAA as a National body with State divisions will release the local committees to be more involved on the relational level with their members and the greater community. The administration function will be carried out by the National body, thus streamlining processes, especially Membership, to continue to move forward.

This exciting chapter ahead may produce fears as it will be new. Join us as Rob shares the vision how we as CCAA can move forward into the future within the Counselling Profession.

This is an experiential workshop inviting you and your clients to explore the world of our unconscious through the therapeutic use of symbols. The world of symbols gives us unexpected and transformative access to our inner unknown known. Here we meet the things we know, that we don’t know we know. The workshop will introduce you to several practical symbol exercises to experiment with in the training and then later with your clients. These are gentle, powerful and helpful tools for exploring what is sometimes just out of our conscious awareness. Bringing these unknown knowns into consciousness can be instrumental in effecting significant inner and outer change.
