Focused Psychological Strategies for Social Workers

The Focused Psychological Strategies workshop offers a comprehensive and accessible exploration of the broad and eclectic strategies contained in the Medicare protocol.

Beginning with a brief historical overview of mental health interventions, we then investigate the theoretical underpinnings, diagnostic categories and treatment strategies of the four main therapeutic modalities: psychological (cognitive behavioural therapy and neuroscience), psychotherapeutic (the unconscious mind and ‘therapeutic relationship’), systemic (family and narrative) and holistic (mindfulness and mind/body).

This two day workshop includes a colourful slide presentation, individual experiential exercises, pair-work and group discussions; and the opportunity to develop and consolidate your therapeutic skills and knowledge.

This workshop is for social workers who would like to enhance their practice, and who may want to apply for accredited mental health social worker status. Participants need to have had a minimum of 2 years post-qualification work experience (unless they have previous work experience, e.g. counselling).
