*This PD Session will be dedicated to the memory of Sean Goddard-Chase. Sean was an active member of our Alumni, a Student Representative and a Member of the Academic Board. His contribution to the ACAP Community was much appreciated and his presence will be missed. For those who knew Sean this will be an opportunity to view a photo montage, courtesy of his sister, which was shown at his funeral last month and to reflect on the ways Sean touched your life.

Dr Judith Ayre is a senior Lecturer in the School of Counselling, and the School’s Academic Head on Melbourne campus. Judith began teaching in the Masters of Counselling program at La Trobe University in 2003 whilst simultaneously working as an individual, child, couple and family counsellor in the public health and welfare sectors in Victoria. Judith also has experience in working with child focused play therapy, sand play and symbol work, child focused mediation and parent -child mediation.

Over the past 18 years, she has taught counselling at postgraduate and undergraduate levels and in the Vocational Education and Training sector, written curriculum for all levels, and maintained a clinical practice that includes the clinical supervision of counsellors and psychotherapists. 

In 2005, Judith introduced Emotion Focused Therapy as an 80 hour counselling specialisation into the Masters of Counselling at La Trobe. There are now more than 200 hundred graduates practicing EFT, and a specialised centre for emotion focused practice and practitioner training has been established in Victoria.

Ritual Work is an ancient tool for navigating the mental and emotional processes of human transitions necessary for important spiritual, consciousness and psychological development.
