Relational Risk Assessment

Evening Seminar 13 June 2020

Our evening seminars take place once a month on a Saturday evening from 5.15pm 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. Our visiting speakers come and share their ideas and enthusiasm about counselling, therapy and transactional analysis.

We open the doors open from 5.15pm for an hour and a half.  There is a small charge of £10 per ticket for the seminar. Any profits from the seminar will be donated to Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice in Headlingley.

Relational Risk Assessment

The role of therapist can be a courageous one.  Despite the sense of calm and healing that we would hope to achieve in therapy – there can also be present complex, primitive processes that have the potential to frighten or alarm us, or bring us into contact with our own existential terrors.

The act of risk assessing a client might be seen as a normative, everyday activity – as part of the process of onboarding a client into the practice.  We can also view this another way, possibly from the perspective of existential terror, and attempts by the practitioner and the profession as a whole to contain the uncontainable.

This evening seminar, delivered online, will explore risk assessment from two perspectives:

1.      Risk Assessment as a procedure – what tools and processes should I be adhering to.

2.      Risk Assessment as a counter-transferential experience.  How do I think about risk assessment from a psychodynamic perspective.

The evening will involve some theory and hopefully lots of discussion and the development of our learning through each other’s experiences.
