Workshop 2 – Saturday & Sunday, October 12th & 13th, 2019
Facilitators: Marguerite Kiely & Noeleen Devlin
Our workshop shares our vast experience and knowledge working with both clients, parents and agencies involved in the care of clients. We also focus on the importance of supporting all therapists with an emphasis of recognising self-care when working with Trauma.
Workshop 3 – October 19, 2019
Facilitator: Janet E. Sahafi
Carl Jung identified certain archetypes which he believed existed in the collective unconscious. He used these archetypes to help him to understand people he was working with and help the people to better understand themselves.
In her book Sacred Contracts, Carolyn Myss expands on this theory and adds to the variety of archetypes that may be at play in the psyche. She believes that all people have four basic archetypes in common: the Saboteur, the Victim, the Child, and the Prostitute (one who sells themselves out or short in life). Beyond these four, Myss believes each person then has their own 8 different archetypes that influence the way we interact in the world and in the family as well as other relationships.
This workshop will present the four basic archetypes in more detail and introduce participants to a collection of additional useful types. Ms Sahafi will share her experience of working with specific archetypes in individual client settings.
Participants will be able to discover and experience how this approach works and understand how it can encourage acceptance and empowerment within their clients once initial bonding and foundational work is accomplished. It is also useful in working through blocks and recurring obstacles in therapist’s clinical work.
