Day 1 Workshops

Trauma, Connection and Recovery: An Adlerian Integrative Perspective with Anthea Millar

To be traumatised needs to be understood primarily as a moment of disconnection, a sense of being alone with the terror. From an Adlerian point of view this is the ultimate experience of extreme inferiority and loss of social belonging. Our deep need to overcome these worst experiences means we do our utmost to compensate for these feelings, with the common symptoms of post-traumatic stress being valiant attempts to safeguard ourselves and our well-being.

In recent years there has been a greatly increased understanding of the complex interactions of neurobiology and psychosocial aspects of trauma which has enabled the development of more effective, and essentially, safer trauma therapy. Here the focus is on building connection, achieving physiological regulation and improving the quality of life now.

Anthea will offer an overview of Adler’s history and holistic biopsychosocial approach in relation to trauma, linking with the recent work of Peter Levine, Bessel van der Kolk, Babette Rothschild, Dan Siegel, Stephen Porges and Deb Dana. Differing from some traditional therapy that focused mainly on trauma memory resolution, these key leaders in the field offer invaluable new perspectives, that resonate well with an Adlerian approach.

Exploring and connecting with our creativity with Bruce Tate

We are all creative and yet there are times when we feel stuck. There are times when we cannot see outcomes or solutions and may then hold ourselves back. Creativity is important in all aspects of our lives and particularly now when we are faced with the many challenges from lockdown and many other restrictions. How do we face the challenges before us and what new choices and possibilities might we explore? How can we learn from the creativity of other and reconnect with our own creative powers?

During this 90 minute session I will present some ideas and questions and there will be an opportunity for confidential conversations in small groups. No prior knowledge is needed – anyone and everyone is welcome who would like to come along with a sense of curiosity. Bring some paper and coloured pens if you like (you will not be asked to show anyone else anything that you do create). Join us for as long as you like and have some fun exploring creativity and hearing from one another. Have some coloured pens and paper or other creativity materials to hand.

Motivational Interviewing with Jon Sperry Ph.D.

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an encouraging counseling approach that helps to elicit and strengthen motivation for change in counseling, coaching, and education settings. This counseling approach is highly compatible and consistent with the philosophies that are articulated by Adlerians. Over 200 controlled clinical trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of Motivational Interviewing among clients with various presenting issues. This course will include various MI demonstrations and counseling practice opportunities.

Day 2 Workshops

IP-informed leadership in the Pandemic and Beyond with Karen John Ph.D

Individual Psychology (IP) is unique in offering an ethical, optimistic, compassionate and systemic approach to leadership. IP and related texts, together with a growing body of mainstream psychology, epidemiology, organisation and management research, confirm our human need to belong, and, through contribution and cooperation within communities of social equals, find meaning and significance in our belonging. With an appreciation of our social embeddedness, social interest, and predilection for fairness, IP’s comprehensive theory and practice wisdom provide a powerful set of principles and strategies for leading democratically.

IP leadership inspires a shared vision, mission, values, and responsibility for continuous movement towards agreed-on improvements. This requires building and maintaining respectful relationships that encourage all concerned to value each other, and everyone’s contributions, equally.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has revealed that effective leaders are transparent in enlisting the cooperation and creativity of experts and citizens in finding ways to manage the crisis equitably. The Pandemic also has exposed inequalities and greed that breed insecurities, fears – and populism. IP-informed leadership can help heal rifts, engender trust and hope, and promote greater equality and responsibility for well-being around the globe and for our planet.

Managing Life Transitions in Turbulent times with Marion Balla

This course is designed to assist participants to identify and explore the losses and gains inherent in major life transitions, eg. aging, career change, retirement, graduation, marriage/partnership, illness, empty family nest, separation/divorce. The impact of these transitions can be amplified in the context of the global pandemic. Through the use of early recollections, anniversary dates and the exploration of life tasks, participants will gain increased insight and strategies to manage major life transitions.Participants will be able to:

  1. explain that individuals live in constant transitions.
  2. describe their current personal transitions within the five life task areas.
  3. discuss the three stages of the transition process.
  4. demonstrate examples of current personal transitions.
  5. plan steps to manage each transition effectively
  6. outline their first experience in childhood of managing a life transition.
  7. Compile examples of past successful transitions and apply lessons to present transitions

The Language of the Unconscious: Emotions in Early Recollections with Paul R. Rasmussen, Ph.D.

Emotions serve three critical purposes in our movement through life. We evaluate quality of life via feeling states. Our first means of communication is through the affective expression of emotion and in the absence of emotion, humans are essentially inactive; emotions energize action. It is the individual’s style of feeling, expressing and acting that constitutes a lifestyle. Thinking, which is critical, is often after-the-fact and too often reflects rationalization rather than foresight and planning. To best understand one’s private logic, including lifestyle convictions, it is beneficial to look at the language of the emotions revealed in early recollections.
