Therapeutic Skills Development in Clinical Practice Presenters: Basia Radlinksa, Emma Diamond and Rowena Bianchino Saturday, June 15, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (AEST) Where:Harbour Therapy Clinic | 364a Harbour Drive | Suite 5 | Coffs Harbour, NSW 2450 | Australia
Harbour Therapy Clinic, Coffs Harbour, invites you to participate in our monthly professional practice series. Each month (on a Saturday) we will be hosting an event, where local practitioners present and demonstrate their chosen therapeutic modality. In each session we will provide a theoretical overview, a demonstration of practice, then an opportunity for you to engage in an experiential practice of that modality. Our aim is to broaden the scope of understanding for available treatment modalities and provide an educational environment for students and practitioners alike to explore and experience working with clients in therapy.
The first session (Saturday June 15th) is an introduction to the range of modalities used in therapy as well as the fundamental micro skills we use for engagement with clients. You will have the opportunity to learn the skills, watch them be demonstrated and then practice in a triad of practitioner, client and observer. Join Basia Radlinska (Clin Psych-Headspace and SCU), Emma Diamond (psychotherapist-HTC) and Rowena Bianchino (Psychotherapist and M.H Social Worker-HTC)
In the coming events of 2019, we will take an in-depth exploration of evidence based therapeutic modalities and discuss what we have learned works best for our clients. This series if for anyone planning to be in clinical practice and also for those who already are and wish to explore other ways of working with clients. We look forward to meeting you all. This series has been organised by the volunteer Psychology Honours students from SCU. We thank them for their time and enthusiasm in developing this practice series. Future topics in 2019: Jungian Psychotherapy, Child and Family Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Couples Therapy, Working with Complex Trauma and PTSD , Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT).
