Spring Series 2016

Spring 2016 Series: Attachment - Multiple Perspectives

Work in the area of Disability Psychotherapy is relatively new in the Irish Health System and generally focused within services with a small number of therapists in private practice offering psychotherapy to this client group. The ‘thinking’ and ‘reflection’ involved in Disability Psychotherapy can offer staff groups who work in services valuable space and time to reflect on their own work practice and share learning and experience with colleagues. Through discussion seminars, DPI provides a reflective space and can facilitate therapists, clinicians and professionals both in services and in private practice, to better keep the client at the centre of our thoughts.

The upcoming Spring 2016 Series will consider the issue of ‘attachment’ from three perspectives, in the therapeutic relationship, for the therapist themselves and within the disability service. This exploration will be facilitated through the reading of relevant papers and open discussion. DPI is delighted to announce that the third discussion group in this particular series will include participants from the Institute of Psychotherapy & Disability (IPD) in the UK. Participants do not need to have attended the earlier series as each discussion can ‘stand alone’. Discussion meetings are limited to a small number of participants (8-12) therefore early booking is advisable. The fee is nominal to cover room booking and tea/coffee.
