Workshop (RCH) – Addressing problematic themes in therapeutic conversations
Please join us at the Addressing problematic themes in therapeutic conversations workshop to be held at The Royal Children’s Hospital.
The workshop aims to provide information and illustrations for clinicians talking to families about distressing issues to assist those conversations to be therapeutic encounters. Theoretical concepts will be balanced with practical techniques to make the workshop material immediately relevant to the participants.
This workshop will be presented by Dr Paul Gibney, a psychotherapist and family therapist, who works in private practice in Brisbane. Paul was a Senior Lecturer at the University of Queensland in the Social Work Department for 10 years. He consults to a number of Government and non-government agencies in the areas of child protection, mental health, residential care and trans-cultural psychiatry. From 2015-17, Paul helped to establish and consulted to a Family Therapy Team working with families of children suffering from cancer, head injury and/or degenerative illnesses at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, Brisbane.
