Power, Threat, Meaning - Workshops
These unique events will be delivered in Perth and Sydney by Professor David Pilgrim straight from UK. David Pilgrim is Honorary Professor of Health and Social Policy, University of Liverpool and Visiting Professor of Clinical Psychology University of Southampton.
There are two versions of the workshop tailored according to whether you are a mental health consumer and/or survivor of complex trauma, or whether you work in the sector. Please choose the session most relevant to you.
This full day workshop is for those working in diverse professions across different sectors:
This workshop will introduce people to the Power Threat Meaning Framework, produced in the UK by a group of psychologists and service users from a strong evidence base drawn from research. The Framework offers an alternative to traditional psychiatric diagnosis. The Framework offers a way of exploring what has happened to people, how they responded and what meanings they attached to their life experiences. This workshop also attracts CPD points for practitioners.
This workshop will facilitate a group process for professionals to apply the framework to their own role and influence from a non-diagnostic approach inclusive of culturally specific perspectives and practices.
