Our next event...

2017 Workshop Program


As you can see we now have an exciting program of events organised for 2017, and I hope that we will see lots of our familiar workshop attendees as well as many new ones. We try to organise workshops that are extremely practical in the skills they offer so that you can leave at the end of the day feeling enthusiastic and confident to immediately apply what you have learned in your practice situation. We also have a reputation for presenting workshops in a relaxed and friendly environment in which everyone can participate easily. 

As well as the workshops that are already announced we are also hoping to bring at least one workshop to Brisbane and one to Canberra, so keep a look out for further information. We are currently negotiating the dates for the Brisbane workshop so that should be added soon!

In the meantime we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2017. We look forward to seeing you at a workshop soon!






 I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the presentation yesterday and how valuable I thought it was. I have been working in pain management in private practice for several years and I was pleasantly surprised that yesterday gave me fresh ideas about how to conceptualise clients' experience of pain and present the information to them. (Suzanne, Clinical Psychologist)  

 I found the workshop very practical with skills that I can apply straightaway in therapy. (Evelene, Psychologist)

 I love the vibe of your workshops - they're always so friendly!
