CPDs (Continuing Professional Development)

Continuing professional development is a vital necessity for any group/organisation and individual in keeping with best practice. I offer a series of workshops that address the need for Stress release, Creativity and Communication amongst others.

These are offered to Students, Nurses, Doctors and all those in the helping professions.

3. Person Centred Therapy in the helping professions

What is Person-Centred Therapy and how can you use some of the tools that make it so effective in your work. Carl Rogers and the necessary conditions needed for growth. How do these relate to your own life and how can you transfer this over to your work?

This CPD is invaluable for all those of you who are in the caring profession and responsible for children / adults with learning disabilities. Person centred in the true sense goes much deeper than the care plans. In this workshop you will learn the importance of:

• Empathy
• The psychological contact between you and your client
• Honesty and being Congruent
• The client is anxious or vulnerable
• Unconditional Positive Regard
• The client perceives acceptance and unconditional positive regard
