The Context of Trauma (1 hour of category B CPD)
Presented by Miriam Taylor

Miriam Taylor is a Gestalt psychotherapist from the UK who specialises in trauma. Miriam’s keynote address from the 2019 PACFA conference explores how traumatic events may be experienced as random and meaningless, but they always happen in a context. The hidden story of how trauma weaves its way into many aspects of society is as clinically relevant as the one the client is aware of. This presentation contextualises trauma, starting from the individualistic and reductionistic focus of neuroscience research, and traces a journey towards an expanded relational field model.

Conversion Therapy and LGBTI People of Faith (1 hour of category B CPD)
Presented by Anthony Venn-Brown

The mental health challenges of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people are well documented. LGBTI people from faith backgrounds often experience these with greater intensity and face additional issues such as attempts to change their sexual orientation or block gender transitioning. Anthony Venn-Brown was a popular preacher in one of Australia’s mega-churches. His autobiography, A Life of Unlearning, details his 22-year struggle coming to terms with his homosexuality. Anthony has worked with individuals seeking resolution of faith and/or their sexuality, conversion therapy survivors and gay and lesbian people in heterosexual marriages.

Supervision: Making the hours count
Presented by Jo Ablett and Cheryl Taylor

In order to make supervision hours count, a practitioner needs to find a way to be safely vulnerable. How do the settings of group and individual supervision facilitate that? The more we can be open and honest in supervision, the deeper we can reflect and grow as practitioners, and the better the client outcomes. Whether you are a supervisee or a supervisor, you will experience how Jo and Cheryl create safety in supervision and how they work differently with individuals and groups.  The webinar includes an interactive panel discussion, facilitated by Dr Cathy Bettman.
