    Multiplicity of the Self: problem or opportunity in the helping professions?

    Tatiana Bachkirova

    We all have limitations in terms of understanding the world and ourselves. For example, some time ago we used to believe that the earth was at the centre of the universe and to shift this view was challenging. Gradually though, we become increasingly aware that many things are not as they seem, and we learn to deal with this. One such belief is our understanding of the nature of self. We still are attached to some views that can be usefully challenged in ways that would make a difference when working in the helping professions. In this talk we will explore some contemporary insights on the self that provide more interesting explanation of the issues that we regularly face in coaching. We will discuss how to make an adjustment to the perspective on our own self and experiment with this view in coaching.

    Mentalisering, som udgangspunkt for organisationspsykologisk intervention: Udvikling af system, gruppe og individ gennem relationsarbejde

    Ulla Charlotte Beck

    Det går ikke længere kun at have ”mig selv” (selv forstået som det handlende jeg) i fokus for udviklingsstrategier. Hverken i privatlivet eller i arbejdslivet. Fællesskaber, som længe har været under afvikling  - villet eller ikke villet – er nødvendige for holdbar udvikling. Selvet er i konstant interaktion med andres selv. Muligheder og begrænsninger hænger nøje sammen med mentaliseringskapaciteten i det system man befinder sig i.

    Forelæsningen vil fokusere på de muligheder, der kommer af at kombinere psykoanalytisk systemteori og mentalisering.

    Preventing Stress and burnout in the coaching, counselling and helping professions through developing resilience

    Stephen Palmer

    Stress and burnout are do not contribute to good health and wellbeing. Yet, in the helping professions, often stress is tolerated and not tackled. In this keynote, stress and burnout will be explored with a particular focus on the signs to look out for in our colleagues, clients, coachees and ourselves. The links between stress and burnout will be highlighted. We will consider how to prevent stress and burnout through using models of stress, resilience and wellbeing that can be used to inform our coaching and counselling practice, not only for others including clients, but also for our ourselves. A range of techniques and interventions will be covered taken from the cognitive behavioural approach, ecopsychology and positive psychology.

    Den psykoterapeutiske profession i Danmark - Demografi, uddannelse og supervision, samt betydning af terapeutens person

    Claus Haugaard Jacobsen

    Oplægget skitserer den psykoterapeutiske profession i Danmark og ser bl.a. på, hvem de danske psykoterapeuter er, psykoterapiens økonomiske rammeforhold, samt uddannelse til og godkendelse af psykoterapeuter. Herefter drøftes betydningen af supervision og egenterapi i uddannelsen af psykoterapeuter, og disse to interventioner sammenlignes. Endelig gøres der nogle betragtninger over psykoterapeutens person og selv, idet der knyttes nogle kommentarer til paradigmet om evidensbaseret psykoterapi og debatten om de mest virksomme psykoterapiformer.
