We invite you to join leading academics in the field of psychology and counselling, as they explore a range of topics relevant to the practice of counselling and psychology.

Mental illness is a family matter

Presented by Associate Professor Andrea Reupert

Mental illness impacts on more than just the individual.  Inevitably the family are impacted, especially children.

This presentation will highlight evidence based practices that counsellors and psychologists might employ when supporting those with a mental illness and their families, with a particular focus on children.

Counselling in Urban Environments

Presented by Dr Tristan Snell

Now that most of the worlds population are living and working in urban environments, counsellors are typically faced with clients who suffer from related stresses such as exposure to noise, pollution, and crowding.

This presentation will present research on the impact of urban life on mental health, and consider counselling strategies that have been developed to support clients from these environments.

Self-care for Professional Counsellors

Presented by Doug Scott

As mental health practitioners we often give the notion of self-care a cursory glance whilst studying in post graduate programs but how many of us actually place self-care in our weekly calendars or map out longer term care plans for ourselves?

It seems more crucial than ever before that we endeavour to look after ourselves in the profession of counselling and psychotherapy. The question for all of us is how we stay on top of our game without experiencing professional impairment. This talk explores the things we can do to help us thrive.

Biohack: The Neuroscience of Building Resilience

Presented by Gill Hanna

Resilience is the ability to positively respond to adversity.  Being resilient doesn’t just apply to navigating the major challenges in life but also includes managing the small things. This may include overcoming major health issues and setbacks through to coping with the everyday stress of work, home life and relationships.

By biohacking our neurobiology we can build our resilience to improve our capacity to not just survive, but thrive. This presentation will discuss the 6 factors of resilience model and explore a neuroscientific approach to building each area of resilience in ourselves, and in our clients.

If you are interested in the field of psychology, you may also be interested in our Graduate Psychology Course Information Session in Singapore on Tuesday 16 October 2018 at the same venue.
