Professional Development - Working with Identity and Goals in Counselling & Psychotherapy - Saturday 30 March

Professor Denis O'Hara invites current ACAP students and alumni to attend this half day workshop at a discounted rate of $35.

There are many things that contribute to therapeutic change. People usually come to counselling because some aspect of their life is not working as well as they would like. Most often clients identify a problem issue or a life challenge they wish to explore and resolve. Once the problem is described and explored, working goals are identified and the therapist and client work collaboratively towards reaching these goals.

By the end of this half day workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Facilitate clients’ explorations of their real self and its challenges
  • Enable clients to link the genuine or real self with realistic and authentic goals
  • Help client distinguish between life problems and life goals
  • Explore an integrated use of theory and strategies to aid clients reach their goals

Date: Saturday 30th March 2019
Time: 10am to 1pm
Location: G.27 & G.28, ACAP Campus, 410 Ann Street, Brisbane
Special Fee for ACAP Students and Alumni: $35

If you wish to drive in to campus you can find parking details for the Cathedral Square Carpark here. Central rain station is also just a short walk away from campus and there are many bus routes that go past our college.
