Being the Change We Want to Be

Workshop over 2 half-days

1 day workshop offered over 2 half-days across Australia and New Zealand via zoom

Presenter: Professor Keith Tudor

As human beings we are a constant process of change. Whether we like it or not – and many people don’t – we are changing all the time although, arguably, it is our resistance to change which makes embracing or even managing change more difficult. As therapists, we are change agents, so questions and struggles about change are personal and professional as well as political. In recent months, our ability to change and to deal with change has also been put to the test as a result of government requirements in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has not only raised psychological issues for clients and therapists about conforming, constraint, and confinement, but has also required many of us to change our practice, overnight.

This online workshop will focus on the nature of change, how we think about change, different theories of change and how we both embrace and resist it. It will comprise teaching, large group work and small group work in break-out rooms.

The 2 half-days will provide you with opportunities:

  • To examine concepts and models of change
  • To consider change as both a point and a process
  • To reflect on your own experiences of and relationship to change – including in response to the current context in which we are living and working
  • To explore changes in therapeutic theory and practice
  • To think differently about change
