Introduction to Leeds Evening Seminars
We hold the evening seminars once a month on a Saturday evening from 5.00pm until 6.45pm.
Come and take the opportunity go gain some excellent CPD as well as meet and socialise with colleagues. We have a broad range of topics coming up and have invited speakers to come and share their ideas and enthusiasm about counselling, therapy and transactional analysis with us.
We open the doors open from 5.00pm – the seminar starts at 5.15pm for an hour and a half. When you arrive we will offer you hot and cold drinks and snacks. There is a small charge of £10 per ticket for the seminar.
The next event
The next seminar is on Saturday 19 January and is on the subject of:
Talking about Shame
What is the seminar about?
How do we understand shame?
Is there a place for shame in our lives, and, if so, what purpose does it serve?
At a time when we might think the leaders of the world don’t feel adequate shame, their actions have prompted thoughts about whether shame ( a feeling we tend to think of as unhelpful) might play a valuable role in our development.
Looking at some of the work of Integrative Transactional Analyst, Richard Erskine, we will be exploring a framework for thinking about the feelings of shame, guilt and humiliation.
