The Conversation Cafe topics so far are:
A. De-medicalising Distress
Hosted by Jo Heaton.
Exploring person centred responses to the pathologising and medicalisation of human distress pervasive in Society, in Health services and in Counselling. How to challenge and promote Person-Centred understanding in these areas.
B. Person Centred Gender
Hosted by Tina Clark M.Sc., B.Ed (Hons), Dip. Couns.

Offering respect for Autonomy in Gender Identification, within and outwith the binary, this discussion provides opportunity to share our experiences and explore our understandings of Gender, and what it means to us. Pressures and privileges. Stereotypes and diversities.
C. Authenticity: what is it and can we be person-centred without it?

He has over 30 years working with children and young people and families in Scotland and has trained in Youth Work, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Integrative Therapy,Person Centred Therapy and Clinical Supervision.
In my work as a therapist I have begun to discover something more, which if attended to, even in the smallest of ways, movement into healing can be experienced towards the direction of potential growth, or what Carl Rogers called an 'evolutionary flow ... as part of a formative tendency in the universe.' 'A Way of Being. 1980.'
Remember that attendance at this event can be used toward your CPD too!
