From Melancholy to Dark Abyss - Active and contemplative approaches to psychological work with depressed patients
A one day seminar for psychotherapists led by Elizabeth Wilde McCormick
Saturday 11 December 2010 - Dublin

From the Confer Website: "This seminar is led by the highly regarded psychotherapist Elizabeth Wilde McCormick, whose work is recognised for its attention to compassion, for providing a mindful spaciousness in the therapy relationship and an embodied quality to the work. Her work embraces a wide range of psychotherapy theories and approaches, including cognitive analytic therapy (CAT), and contemplative psychotherapy. Those attending this seminar will be provided with a wider understanding of the individual nature of depression, its aetiology, symptomatology and the context in which it has arisen. We will consider how to assess severity and risk in depressed patients, how to introduce psycho-education through using maps of the Human Function Curve (Institute of HeartMath) and the Autonomic Arousal Model (Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute). We will also cover how to assess and monitor stress-responses and help patients develop greater awareness and self regulation. "
