Psychology and Psychotherapy Workshops Webinars and Events Calendar

Psychology & Psychotherapy Workshops, Webinars & Events Calendar

Therapy workshops can be very useful, being a therapist means that you are constantly evolving, exploring, learning, and understanding the world of human psychotherapy and psychology with the aim of improving your mental health approaches and helping clients face and deal with their issues in the most effective way possible.

These types of events are a great way to connect with experts in the fields that you are interested in and want to know more about. Sometimes the logical next step on this journey may be to seek out workshops, webinars, podcasts, and therapeutic events that will help you focus on specific concepts in a particular course of study, or on the development of a particular skill.

Therapy workshops cover a wide range of therapy modalities and approaches are often informal and interactive. Trainers and therapists have the chance to take part in discussions, presentations, debates, or hands-on demonstrations to engage with new ideas and techniques.

While many academic courses may take a long time to complete, therapy workshops are time-limited and self-contained. All the information you need is presented during a workshop, so additional reading or homework outside of the event is not required.

We are big advocates of helping therapists connect with in-person events that are based on the participants’ direct involvement. Attending them is an opportunity to meet, learn from, and interact with renowned international experts. Below are some of our recommended therapy workshops and events (and anything else that might be useful) that are upcoming. We do hope you find them of interest.

Attachment and Trauma: Embracing and Repairing the Traumatized Self in Psychotherapy

November 17th, 18th and 19th 2023 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday)

Event Type: Online

With: Bruce Hersey, LCSW (Speaker)

Time: Fri: 13:00-18:00; Sat and Sun: 14:00-18:00

Location: Live streaming available on Zoom Meetings (Video recording available)





Through lecture with PowerPoint slides, case examples, video clips, brief large group exercises, live demonstration, and Q & A, Bruce will present an in-depth overview of the overlap of IFS and EMDR focusing on the underlying natural organic healing process, the nature of Dual Attention, and how IFS and Coherence Therapy’s clinical model of memory
reconsolidation align to bridge a gap in the EMDR Standard Protocol where protectors (defenses) are encountered, and provide a largersystemic ego state context for guidance throughout the Standard Protocol.

Using IFS concepts as organizing principles in EMDR Phases One and Two, allows for the organic development of a treatment plan that identifies the most appropriate current target and provides the therapist and client a clearer path to essential Assessment Phase target information by understanding the importance of gathering each component element from
a specified internal source.

Redefining the AIP network and targeted network as conscious relational entities engaged in a dynamic energetic healing relationship we can call Functional Dual Attention supports the initial construction and subsequent maintenance of dual attention throughout processing.


What will you learn?

At the completion of this training, you will be able to:

  • explain the difference between a part and the Self.
  • describe an IFS-Informed definition of Dual Attention (FunctionalDual Attention).
  • explain the Presence of Self (POS) scale.
  • name the appropriate source for a Positive Cognition in the Assessment Phase.
  • name the appropriate source for a Validity of Cognition (VOC) in the Assessment Phase.
  • list the two components of a Protector’s Positive Intention.
  • explain the difference between Subjective Units of Disturbance (SUD) and Level of Urge to Protect (LUP).
  • explain the difference between egocentric and allocentric cognitive maps.
  • list the two types of energy which organize parts.
  • describe a Discovery Contract.
  • describe Blending and Unblending in IFS.
  • name the two types of interweaves (Therapist Tasks) in Discovery.

Mind, Body, Social & Spiritual Approaches to Addiction Recovery: 40 World-Leading Pioneers Share Their Best Practices

Monday November 27th – To –  Saturday December 2nd, 2023

Event Type: Online Summit, live streaming available.

With: 40 world-leading clinical psychologists, researchers, authors, and mental health practitioners.

Time: The sessions will be spread across a 6-day period, with each day covering a specific theme.

Location: Online

For the past 12 months, our friends at The Weekend University have been interviewing 40 of the world’s leading psychologists for their Holistic Recovery Summit.

This is a free online event that aims to provide mental health professionals with the latest cutting-edge strategies and frameworks for mind, body, social, and spiritual approaches to healing addiction.

A report from the United Nations found that 35 million worldwide suffer from substance abuse disorders, while drug use is directly and indirectly responsible for 11.8 million deaths each year. Other statistics from the National Institute on Drug Abuse show relapse rates as high as 40-60% for those in treatment.

Despite these alarming figures and its widespread prevalence in our society, addiction remains an unsolved mystery. Worse still, some see it as a moral failing; a choice addicts make because they are “weak-willed”. While others view it as a “disease” of the brain.

However, a growing body of research is revealing that not only are these assumptions scientifically inaccurate, but they are also obstacles to recovery. Instead, the evidence is mounting that addiction is almost always a symptom of a deeper problem and that it can only be properly understood when placed in the light of the broadest possible context.

If we want to understand (and treat) addiction effectively, we have to take mind, body, social, and spiritual factors into consideration — otherwise, we’re only seeing a tiny fragment of the full picture. So, the purpose of this event is to provide mental health professionals with a comprehensive overview of the most essential ideas and approaches for understanding and treating addiction.

Over the course of 6 days, you’ll learn from:

  • Janina Fisher (TIST)
  • Richard Schwartz (IFS)
  • Stephen Porges (Polyvagal Theory)
  • Pat Ogden (Sensorimotor Psychotherapy
  • Steven Hayes (ACT)
  • Anna Lembke (Dopamine)
  • Iain McGilchrist (Neuroscience)
  • Laurel Parnell (EMDR)
  • Ned Hallowell (ADHD)
  • Bruce Alexander (Rat Park & Culture)

And 30 others!
