Workshop Outline:

This workshop aims to begin a dialogue within the profession about counselling in the 21st Century: its direction, focus, training and status as a practice. It will encourage participants to examine and question the evolving role of counselling in the world and whether the changes happening are changes for the good. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on how the profession can resist changes which negatively affect the status of the profession. The direction of counselling and psychotherapy, particularly short-term provision, is of growing concern to many in the profession. Global providers of therapy in the workplace have influenced how counselling is packaged and marketed. In turn, this is beginning to affect the person of the therapist, the interpersonal aspect of counselling and the meaning of change. The profession needs to assert a position on these changes that is grounded in values, ethics, and particularly client agency. As such, this workshop will be experiential and participative but will be guided by the ideas contained in ‘Counselling in the 21st Century, a pimped profession?’ IJCP, 2019. Participants would be wise to be familiar with the article in order to get the most out of the workshop.

CPD Certs will be emailed to participants after attendance at the Workshop
