Event description
Emotional Wellbeing and Disability during COVID 19 Webinar Series Hosted by Disability Psychotherapy Ireland and Callan Institute, SJOG

About this event

Disability Psychotherapy Ireland and Callan Institute, St. John of God Community Services clg. are pleased to bring you a series of six monthly webinars which started in January.

The next webinar is on:

Friday May 14th, 2021 at 10.00am - 11.30am.

Cost: €10 for two remaining sessions of series.

This webinar series considers the emotional wellbeing of children and adults with Intellectual Disability, their families, carers and professionals, as we all live with Covid 19.

Each webinar will explore emotional wellbeing in the context of change, loss and uncertainty; provide detailed guidance on how best to support emotional wellbeing through our conversations, our play, our activities, our supports and decision making. Self-care and reflection will also be examined.

Our next webinar presenter is:

Sorca McGrath, MA, PG Dip. Creative Supervision, MIAPTP.

Sorca McGrath is a psychotherapist, play therapist and creative supervisor working in private practice and she is also a co-founder and co- director of The Relate Ability Centre, a training and therapeutic centre created to meet the needs of vulnerable populations and all those who work with them; children in care, children and adults supported by disability services, hard to reach clients, those who are non verbal, clients with DID, and people living with complex trauma.

Sorca has also worked extensively with therapeutic groups in disability settings, focussing on an embodied approach to emotional regulation and wellbeing.

Presentation: Play - Symbolic engagements for integration of experience and good mental health.

In this webinar we will look at how to support emotional wellbeing using metaphor and symbolic worlds; tuning in to where our clients are drawn to symbol; and looking at how to play out concerns, integrate experiences and play out solutions using symbols and metaphorical narratives.

We will develop a toolbox for practitioners to use with their clients as well as themselves, to nurture self care and a reflective practice.

Chair: Caroline Dench

Our forthcoming speakers:

June 18th: Dr. Brendan McCormack, Psychiatrist
