“It is not sufficient simply to have an experience in order to learn. Without reflecting upon this experience it may quickly be forgotten, or its learning potential lost.”
Graham Gibs (1988)

Reflection and supervision are essential elements in the progress of those working in the field of mental and physical health, in order to face the challenges emerge in practice.

During the online seminar, therapeutic writing techniques will be used as reflection and self-supervision tools. The aim is professional development, improvement of the relationship with the clients/patients, understanding and processing of the issues that arise among them, review and reflection of their work with them.

Upon completion of the seminar, participants will be able to continue to use the techniques themselves or as part of their supervision.

The seminar cannot replace supervision, but it can act as a complementary tool.

The seminar is suitable for mental and physical health professionals and related professions (psychologists, psychiatrists, doctors, mental health consultants, social workers, coachers, special education teachers, speech therapists, occupational therapists, carers, etc.).
