Nourishing Your Therapist Self – 2 Day Workshop Perth

Take time out from daily life and relax in a tranquil bush setting hidden away in suburban Perth.
Unwind in a friendly, supportive and non-judgemental environment where you can be free to focus on yourself.
Date

5-6 November 2021

Details

Press pause on your role as helper and carer, and spend some time focusing on you and your needs. This retreat will use the principles of both Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Schema Therapy to:

· Create a space where you can rest, rejuvenate, and rediscover parts of yourself that are forgotten amidst the busyness of life

· Sit on the other side of the therapy exchange as you practice experiential strategies to foster self-care

· Reorient your clinical practice to better align with your values

· Non-judgementally attune to contextual factors that impede your capacity to practice self-care

· Pay attention to your schemas and the impact they have on your self-care and clinical practice

· Tune in to your Vulnerable Child Mode and allow your Happy Child to play!

· Build on your Healthy Adult Mode to assist in taking good care of yourself, independent of how busy or stressed you are

After the retreat it is intended that you will return to your usual life with:

· A sense of calm and renewed energy

· Connection to your values and a sense of purpose for the future

· An appreciation for the many ways we can use experiential strategies to create meaningful change

· A psychologically flexible plan on how to take good care of yourself in general and in your clinical work

· An understanding of how ACT and Schema Therapy are applied to self-care.

Details

In presenting to the Perth SFBT interest group, Andrew will begin with a quick overview of his 30-year journey with solution focused brief therapy. After this, Andrew will introduce the Signs of Safety approach through case examples, looking at the assessment and planning framework and a range of Signs of Safety child engagement and safety planning tools. Before Andrew introduces the Signs of Safety, he will ask group members what they would most like to get out of a presentation of the approach and will orient this Signs of Safety presentation focused on these goals. Andrew will leave plenty of time for discussion throughout and at the end.
