Throughout the year we offer a number of CPD events for professionals. Details of these events and how to book will be uploaded here as they become available. Alternatively you can join our CPD mailing list by emailing us at email@example.com to be the first to hear about new events.
CPD is one of the ways that we raise the funds needed to continue working with clients so by coming along to our CPD events you are helping clients access the counselling they need.
Unless otherwise stated all of our one day CPD workshops are held at Friendship Hall, High Street, Weston-super-Mare (opposite our premises at Emmanuel Church). The workshops will run from 9:30-17:00 and cost £50 each or £85 when you book two workships together. For more information or to book your place please email Claire at firstname.lastname@example.org

"The Biological and Psychological Components of Gender - a Developmental Approach" provided by Peter Flowerdew
The day will be split into two sessions. The first will look at physiological elements of gender The second session will examine the psychological elements, especially the early childhood experiences. This workshop is particularly relevant to client work with people who have non-binary gender or non-binary gender identity and the implications for ethical therapeutic engagement.
Peter was trained by Richard Erskine, was one of the first TA practitioners; he took his doctorate under Carl Rogers, and his therapist was Fritz Perles. He has, in lifetime of study, produced an integration of the three approaches.
