About – Mick Cooper
Mick Cooper is a Professor of Counselling at the University of Strathclyde and a Chartered Counselling Psychologist. Mick is the author of several well-known texts in the counselling and psychotherapy field, including Existential Therapies (Sage, 2003), Working at relational depth in counselling and psychotherapy (Sage, 2005, co-authored with Dave Mearns), Essential Research Findings in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Sage, 2008) and Pluralistic Counselling and Psychotherapy (Sage, 2005, co-authored with John McLeod).
Mick is also recognised for his research into humanistic school-based counselling http://www.strath.ac.uk/humanities/research/schoolbasedcounsellingproject/research/ and is currently National Advisor for Counselling for the Children and Young People’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Programme.
Building on an existential, humanistic and person-centred approach to therapeutic practice, this workshop will explore what it means to engage with clients at a level of emotional and relational depth.
Through small group exercises, pairs-work, discussion and theory and research input, the workshop will help participants develop a deeper understanding of such encounters, their role in therapy, and the ways in which therapists can develop their capacity to relate deeply with their clients.
The workshop builds on Dave Mearns and Cooper’s (Sage, 2005) ‘Working at Relational Depth in Counselling and Psychotherapy,’ as well as cutting edge material from the recently published edited text: Relational Depth: New Perspectives and Developments’ (Palgrave, 2013, ed. Knox et al).
