20th May 2017
Phobias: The Case For Cautious Non-Intervention (CNI)
With Professor Roderick Orner
'My objective is to encourage a different approach to assessment of material presented by clients who report phobias.
This raises questions about risks associated with conventional intervention techniques which are rarely mentioned.
The aim of the workshop is to foster more considered counselling practices.
The session format involves a brief presentation of my ideas on these subjects to be followed by a peer discussion of delegates’ past experiences with phobic clients and how future practice may be informed by a CNI approach.'
Dr. R. J. Orner
Consultant Clinical Psychologist
Visiting Professor in Primary Care Psychology

Self care for therapists: An important ethical consideration, and how to get the balance right
With Jane Travis
'Self care for therapists is an important ethical consideration. When we give so much without taking, how can we protect ourselves from overwhelm or burnout?
How do you get the balance right?
In this session we'll look at the potential risk of isolation, how this might manifest and how you can minimise these risks.'
* This is inspired by the talk I gave at the BACP student conference in February 2017
The 'Resources' page has details of books recommended by Lincoln Counsellors Network speakers or members.
*Although every effort will be made to ensure these details don't change, occasionally things don't go to plan.
