Breaks and Endings

Breaks and Endings

Liz Good – Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist

A one-day workshop for counsellors and psychotherapists

Saturday 14th May 2022, 10.00am – 4.00pm

The way in which practitioners work with endings is a fundamental component of good ethical practice. Drawing on psychoanalytic theory, this workshop aims to develop and enhance understanding of the visceral effects that breaks and endings almost always have on both patients and practitioners. 

This workshop is aimed at all practitioners but particularly recommended for trainees/qualified practitioners who are considering working in private practice.

Please note that for 2nd and 3rd Diploma students this counts as one of their two annual compulsory workshops. There is no charge for those students. Qualified counsellors are very welcome but must pay the fee below.

Interactive group discussion will be incorporated into this workshop.

Participants will also have an opportunity to discuss their own experiences.

Venue:  This will be an online workshop conducted on zoom

Cost: £50.00 (£40.00 for concessions)
