On Feeding and Being Fed: Attachment and Food – Linda Cundy

This Training Video captures all the key learning points from our live training workshop with Linda Cundy on an attachment perspective to understanding our relationship with food.

From the start of life, feeding is a relational experience. The bond between caregiver and infant is brokered in the intimacy of feeding, and our attachment to food is an expression of the relationships we form with other people and ourselves. Our relationship with food expresses something of our attachment histories, secure or insecure: safety and security may be sought in eating or in refusal to eat.

This training video will help you to explore how our relationships with food are shaped in early life in the context of our first attachments, and how food mediates our relationships throughout life.


 

The Disintegrating Self: Understanding and working with adults with ADHD and/or autistic spectrum traits

This Training Video captures all the key learning points from our live seminar with Dr Phil Mollon on understanding adults with ADHD and/or autistic spectrum traits.

Traits of both ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and Autistic Spectrum are common, and often occur together. Many of those who seek help from psychotherapists suffer from such problems – but often neither they, nor their therapists, are aware of these brain-based conditions. Despite the misleading emphasis upon attention in the name, ADHD is essentially a disorder of impaired self-regulation, including affect regulation.

In his one-day presentation renown author and psychotherapist Dr Phil Mollon considers the key characteristics and functions of both ADHD and Autistic traits in-depth, and considers how psychotherapy can helpfully (and unhelpfully) understand and respond to clients and patients who present with these characteristics.


 

'Sturm und Drang': The Dilemmas of Working Therapeutically with Adolescents in Private Practice - Rebecca Kirkbride

This Training Video captures all the key learning points from our live training workshop with Rebecca Kirkbride on working therapeutically with children and young people aged 11-18 years.

Working therapeutically with children and young people in private practice almost inevitably raises issues and dilemmas not ordinarily present in adult work. Working with this group frequently raises issues around therapeutic boundaries, confidentiality, contracting arrangements, and child protection.

This Training Video also contains discussion summaries from the live workshop, and case studies which you can pause and reflect on.


 

The Interpretation Series

Four Training Video capture all the key learning points from our Conference with Dr Maggie Turp, Dr Aaron Balick and Patrick Casement on the value and use of interpretation and other interventions in therapy.

In this one-day conference our speakers address the question ‘What makes a good intervention in therapy?’. These three thinkers from integrative and psychodynamic approaches will discuss answers to this question including consideration of the role of ‘the interpretation’.

The art of interpretation is considered a cornerstone of psychoanalytic psychotherapy and counselling. By means of ‘the interpretation’ the therapist will observe and comment on actions and motivations just outside the awareness of their client. As an intervention it can offer a new angle that somehow feels right-enough, or can be experienced as clumsy, uncaring, and critical by clients.

These training videos will help you to explore and question the best use of interpretation and other interventions within a therapy context. The fourth and final video brings all three speakers together for a Question and Answer session with our live audience.
