Are you studying on an introductory course and would like to learn more about unconscious processes?

This online workshop content is aimed at an introductory level and is open to all. There is no expectation of any pre-course knowledge or clinical practice.

The workshop will be of particular interest to those who are exploring a range of therapy models before embarking on a professional training, at an early stage of their training and clinical practice, seasoned practitioners who feel in need of a refresher and anyone who simply has an interest in the topic and enjoys exploring.

By the end of the course you:

  1. Will have gained a good basic grasp of some key unconscious processes and some confidence and appetite for further exploration.
  2. Will have some confidence in recognising, exploring and discussing unconscious dynamics.

This workshop will take participants on a whistle stop introductory tour of the unconscious. We shall visit some unconscious processes such as repression, projection, transference and countertransference and stop off at some key defensive mechanisms. We will unravel some jargon and discuss how these processes might manifest themselves in our everyday lives. We shall consider some clinical and non-clinical examples of such phenomena at work along our way.

There will be some direct teaching, and plenty of individual and pairs exercises and time for group discussion.

Target Audience:

Counsellors and therapists in training. This is aimed at those who are starting on their therapy training.
