What a great conference! I’ve not attended the UKATA Cumbrian Conference in Penrith for a few years – it’s a great venue and lovely event tucked away just outside Penrith. I wasn’t intending to run a workshop and had planned for a social time with some interesting CPD then was asked if I could replace a presenter at the last minute, who was ill.
My workshop was on working with people who are anxious, material and ideas I have been pulling together over the last few years in response to working with a number of therapy clients with anxiety in my private practice in Chesterfield.
There are three key messages to my presentation:
- How the Racket system can be a very helpful in looking at the interlocking patterns of thinking and feeling
- Using Berne’s Four Stages of Cure to structure the interventions and thinking of the therapist
- The existential nature of anxiety
Here are the slides from my session, along with a couple of pictures of the Cumbrian Hills to wet your appetite for next years event.
Andy and I are thinking about a future training day on working with anxiety using a mixture of modalities. If you think you might be interested please email us to express your interest using the form below.
