Psychotherapy and the Natural World - Synthesising ecology and psychotherapy in practice and theory

Online Module
So much psychotherapy takes place within the confines of a consulting room. But what happens when therapy takes place in a natural setting - or when the natural world is invited into the narrative of self and other? This module brings together the practices of ecology and psychotherapy to illustrate how engagement with nature, which includes ourselves, is a powerful transformative tool, both in itself and - potentially - when integrated into any therapeutic approach.


Forensic Psychotherapy: Pathologies and Treatment Strategies for working with Violence

Online Module
The subject of this online module is the psychotherapeutic treatment of violent offenders and those with abusive tendencies or fantasies. Through 14 hours of videos, audio tracks and papers, we aim to illuminate why human beings can be dangerous, murderous or perverse, and how such tendencies can be psychotherapeutically treated.


Embodied Approaches to Psychotherapy

Online Module
This new collection of videos and papers brings together the work of an extraordinarily diverse and talented group of psychotherapists - from psychoanalysts to body psychotherapists - who see the body as central to the therapeutic process. We began by asking each of them to elaborate their reasons for working with this approach. The result is a fascinating, multi-faceted collection of works that illustrates the new theoretical movement within psychotherapy that regards the body - or the mind-body, bodymind or embodied mind

The Nature of Trauma and Dissociation

Online Module
Working successfully with patients suffering from trauma and dissociation is a rapidly expanding clinical skill that involves specific training. This module takes us through the key concepts in working with people who have experienced trauma, covering aetiology, diagnosis and contemporary treatment approaches. The talks are designed to explain psychotherapeutic expertise and cover treatments approaches for all degrees of trauma, from working with complex, childhood attachment trauma to PTSD following a traumatic incident.



Neurobiology and its Applications to Psychotherapy

Online Module
This package of resources brings together a fresh collection of video and audio presentations to illuminate the relationship between neuroscience and psychotherapy. The interface between the two disciplines has aroused great recent interest and this collection of talks asks some of the most influential neuropsychologists and practitioners to explain the neuroscientific concepts that they consider the significant in developing the skills of psychotherapy or in understanding the mind.


Psychotherapeutic Work with Intergenerational Trauma

Online Module
It is widely accepted that the traumas of parents, grand-parents and ancestors are deeply woven into the psychological fabric of the living, often manifesting in the form of psychological vulnerability throughout life. This may include a susceptibility to PTSD-type symptoms, borderline relational characteristics, somatisation and even psychosis. This package of clinical presentations offers the psychotherapist, counsellor or psychologist a rich blend of theoretical perspectives and clinical experience on identifying and resolving psychological issues that stem from the patient's family history of trauma.

Advances in Relational Psychotherapy

Online Module
The vast influence of Relational Psychoanalysis in the last 25 years has evolved into one of the most significant paradigm shifts in the field, impacting on almost every psychotherapy modality. This package offers a set of videoed talks on relational theory and practice, presented by some of most influential author-practitioners, and is designed to illustrate relational theory as it is applied to clinical technique.

The Applications of Attachment Theory to Psychotherapy

Online Module
Since John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth's pioneering studies into the infant's need for proximity to a loving caretaker, new research and writings on attachment theory have flowered into a major psychological discipline. This has greatly influenced the way we understand the needs of the dependent child and the necessity of secure attachment throughout life for emotional growth. This collection of videoed talks addresses the question of how these insights into attachment are being applied to the techniques of contemporary psychotherapy.

Neurobiology and its Applications to Psychotherapy - II

Online Module
While recognising that the relationship between neuroscience and the talking cure is still in its infancy, significant insights are constantly emerging on how the mind works and how that may be relevant to mental health practices. This self-contained module provides access to some of Confer's most popular live events to deepen our understanding of the relevance of interpersonal neurophysiology to both psychological health and disturbances from the impact of epigenetics to the importance of nutrition.
