Event description
This workshop will introduce, and look at the practical implications of, a pluralistic approach to counselling and psychotherapy.

About this Event

This workshop will introduce, and look at the practical implications of, a pluralistic approach to counselling, psychotherapy and psychological practice. This framework was developed with John McLeod in the 2000s, and has since been adopted by a number of practitioners and training institutes across the UK and internationally. The pluralistic approach is a collaborative, integrative perspective, deeply rooted in humanistic and person-centred values. Its fundamental premise is that each client is unique, and therefore may need different things from therapy. On this basis, the pluralistic approach creates a framework in which practitioners can integrate a wide variety of understandings and methods into their practice. A key element of this pluralistic approach is shared decision making: talking to clients about what they want from therapy, and how they might most effectively be helped to get there.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

Describe the basic principles of a pluralistic approach to counselling and psychotherapy

Recognise evidence and arguments that support, and challenge, a personalised approach to therapy

Explain the ways in which they are able to help clients, and the methods they use to facilitate this

Critically discuss the strengths, and limits, of 'metatherapeutic communication': talking to clients about what they want from therapy

Apply basic methods of metatherapeutic communication

Critically evaluate the use of process and outcome measures in therapeutic practice
