CPD News January 2021

All of us at IFT wish you a healthy and safe new year.  Although the year is starting with a challenge we are hopeful that it is indeed the beginning of the end.

Meanwhile we have a very full CPD programme to offer you for this winter and spring.  We will shortly be posting our new CPD spring calendar but meanwhile we don’t want you to miss what is coming up in January.

There is still time to book for Taiwo Afuape’s radical systemic approach to trauma on Monday 18th January.  If you missed it before the holidays, have a look at Taiwo’s  2 minute video describing the workshop http://ift.org.uk/news/taiwo-afuapes-a-radical-systemic-approach-to-trauma-workshop/

To book just click here. http://ift.org.uk/workshop/a-radical-systemic-approach-to-trauma-a-school-based-intervention-that-goes-to-the-root-linking-trauma-with-oppression-and-consciousness-with-action/

January also sees the start of 4 related half-day workshops on reflective systemic work with eating disorders.  These are provided by 5 highly experienced systemic workers in this field and cover different aspects of the work in this demanding field.  For a brief video introduction go to http://ift.org.uk/news/reflective-systemic-work-with-eating-disorders/ to hear three of the presenters discussing the workshops. They will be of value to anyone working in this demanding area of practice whether systemically trained or not.

What are you doing at 6:30pm on Friday 18th January?  Since none of us will not be going out, why not bring a cup of tea or a glass of wine and join Arlene Vetere, Jim Sheehan and the other authors in their edited book ‘Long Term Systemic Therapy’.   THIS IS A FREE EVENT and will be a well spent hour and half.  Book here.    http://ift.org.uk/workshop/spotlight-on-long-term-systemic-therapy-a-new-book/

On the evening of Wednesday  3rd February we will be holding another book celebration for ‘Building Children’s Resilience in the Face of Parental Mental Illness: conversations with Children, Parents and Professionals, a volume edited by Alan Cooklin and Gill Gorell Barnes and featuring many of the authors.  THIS IS A FREE EVENT.  To book go to:    http://ift.org.uk/workshop/spotlight-on-building-childrens-resilience-in-the-face-of-mental-illness/

We love your feedback, and aim to be responsive.

Our commitment to black lives matter was met by you with enthusiasm.  Many of the CPD events we have planned will be relevant to that movement.  Look out for coming notices.

You asked for:  More on couples.  Look out for Janet Reibstein and Reenee Singh in March on cross cultural couples.

You asked for more on supervision. Look out for Karen Partridge in April.

You asked for more time in break out rooms:  we have extended our half days from 3 hours to 3.5 or 4 hours depending on the presenter, to allow for more time.

Meanwhile look out for the half year calendar.

We look forward to seeing you soon in 2021!
