CPD course for all registrations of psychologists, registered counsellors, and psychiatrists
The person-centred approach to psychotherapy is often spoken about as the most underrated and misunderstood approach to psychotherapy. The person-centred approach is often confused with the person-centred technique, and clinicians do not necessarily understand that many techniques can be used in a person-centred way. Because of this misunderstanding, the approach is under-rated and therapists are therefore not adequately trained in, or even often forget, the basic principles of this approach, which forms a fundamental foundation for effective psychotherapy. In a fast-moving therapeutic world where new and exciting techniques are being developed and punted as “fool proof cure all’s”, therapists are at risk for losing the basic skills required for building an effective relationship with their clients. If a therapist cannot effectively build a relationship with their client, they will have no channel through which to conduct their techniques and the effectiveness of therapy will be negatively affected.
This workshop will aim to:
– Explain the difference between the person-centred approach and the person-centred technique
– Give trainees a thorough understanding of Roger’s theory of personality and how this links with the approach
– Train attendees in facilitating person-centred interviews as the foundation for gaining clinical information on their clients’ interactional styles both theoretically and practically
– Train attendees in the core-principles of the effective Rogerian therapist
– Facilitate and enhance person-centred therapeutic skills
