Working with Mental Health in the Counselling Room
The interactive workshop will explore evaluation processes and assessment of mental health needs.
It will provide an opportunity to identify signs and symptoms associated with Mental Health and to increase the understanding of mental distress and its impact on individuals.
We will look at ways that counselling can effectively help clients and to be able to recognise when counselling is ineffective.
Attendees will receive practical advice on how counselling methods can be adapted to work effectively with this client group and to address any challenges that may arise.
The workshop will cover:
- What is Mental Health and how is it ‘seen’ in the counselling setting?
- How can the sometimes invisible become visible?
- What are the myths and stigma associated with the term ‘Mental Health’?
- Can medication and counselling work well together? What are the different types of medication most commonly prescribed and how do they work?
