Relational Depth in Counselling and Psychotherapy – Mick Cooper

Relational Depth in Counselling and Psychotherapy: Connection and Re-Connection at a Time of Social Distancing – Mick Cooper
What does it mean to connect to others in an in-depth way in therapy, and what is its impact?
Research shows that relational depth with clients is associated with improved therapeutic outcomes; and, at a time of social disconnection, fragmentation, and fear, those connections may be more important than ever.
This workshop will give participants an opportunity to explore their experiences of relational depth and how it feels to meet others at this level of intensity and intimacy: in both their therapeutic practice and everyday life. The workshop will look at the impact of, and psychological processes behind, relational disconnection, and the mechanisms by which relational depth can have a positive effect.
Participation in the workshop is free, and a self-completion CPD certificate will be available for participants. Our one ‘ask’ is that participants commit to attending for the full day (10.00-16.00, see schedule below) so that we have a consistent community of participants throughout the day.
Participation in the workshop will be via the online platform Zoom. Please ensure that you have tested use of this platform prior to the event, so that technological problems are minimised on the day.
