A Workshop with Professor Mick Cooper: Working with Goals in Psychotherapy and Counselling

This interactive workshop provides participants with an opportunity to develop their understanding of working with goals in counselling and psychotherapy, and to develop their skills in this emerging area.  Although many therapists are reluctant to focus on goals, they provide an opportunity to help clients define, for themselves, what is important to therapy; and evidence suggests that many clients do want to develop them as an orientating-point for therapy. The workshop starts by examining the 'teleological' philosophical principles underlying a goal-orientated approach to therapy--that human beings are 'directional', striving towards things--and goes on to examine what has been learnt from the psychological research about the nature of goals and goal processes (for instance, distinguishing between 'approach' and 'avoidance' goals). It then goes on to a more practical exploration of working with goals, including skills practice and video demonstration.

This 1-day workshop aims to explore the challenges of working with young people today. Upheavals in the social world have radically changed the experience of adolescence; there are new patterns of friendship, and ways of relating to others, experiences of intimacy and separateness driven largely by the impact of on-line and social media, new possibilities relating to the body, sexuality and gender.  Vulnerabilities, including widely-reported mental health problems and risks, such as self-harm, accompany often uncertain, extended transitions to adulthood. How to engage meaningfully with young people in these contexts is a crucial task facing everyone working in this field.

Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) has been developed by Dan Hughes over the past twenty years as a model of therapy for developmentally traumatized children and their families based on a theoretical understanding of attachment and intersubjective relationships. More recently Dyadic Developmental Practice has been recognized as providing a framework which extends beyond the therapy to also provide network, school and parenting support.

This four day training introduces DDP and the broader framework of Dyadic Developmental Practice within which the therapy is applied. The core components of DDP will be presented and explored through discussion and experiential exercises.
