Description of CPD activities for 2012


Ethics of Community Practice and Visual Research Methods (2 days; 14 CEUs + 6 Ethics points)
Facilitated by Hayley Berman (Art Psychotherapist) and Luke Lamprecht (Child and Youth Care Practitioner)

Elective: Ethics of using therapeutic work with children in research (1 day; 7 CEUs + 6 Ethics points)
Facilitated by Hayley Berman (Art Psychotherapist) and Luke Lamprecht (Child and Youth Care Practitioner)

In this workshop participants will be introduced to visual inquiry as a methodology for investigating the complex meanings aesthetics, emotions and arts- based approaches bring to therapeutic work and research, and how they engage with change and transition. The evolving methodologies include reflexive practice, art as research (including photo-voice and body mapping) and participatory action research. Body mapping is a therapeutic and visual research method, involving the use of art materials with a trained facilitator to visually externalize emotion and experience and to connect these to the body. Photo-voice is a widely used research tool, using disposable cameras. Participants are invited to photograph specific aspects of their lives and tell the narrative of those images. Our approach encourages building narratives to sustain purpose and identity that can be built on and developed further. The sustainability of these capabilities depends upon the simultaneous engagement with the contextual, political, social and historical traces of experience.
This workshop will highlight the ethical and therapeutic benefits, challenges and risks of these methodologies in exploring the application with various vulnerable client groups. The elective on working with children will focus specifically on ethical child advocacy issues in research. We will highlight the importance of the relationship between project design and methods of evaluation that rely on emergent, flexible and creative approaches. This course engages experientially with the interface between therapy and research.



Trauma ( 1 day; 7 CEUs)
Facilitated by Hayley Berman (Art psychotherapist) and Luke Lamprecht (Child and Youth Care Practitioner)

This course will focus on art therapy based methods to work both short term and long term. We will address some of the challenges on working with continuous trauma and one off trauma’s and how different interventions and approaches would be useful for varying contexts.  Some of the methods draw on more cognitive approaches to deal specifically with trauma symptomatology and symptom relief in both the acute and chronic trauma presentations.Handouts and all materials required are included.


Bereavement (1 day; 7 CEUs)
Facilitated by Hayley Berman (Art psychotherapist) and Luke Lamprecht (Child and Youth Care Practitioner)

With the high levels of multiple losses in our communities we have designed a psychoanalytically informed arts based approach to working therapeutically with these client groups particularly within a group context.  We will explore Freud’s paper on Mourning and Melancholia which will be distributed to participants beforehand. It’s relevance to understanding healthy mourning processes and those that can be destructive, preventing moving through the experience/s in a productive way will be worked with. Image making and the group context are a critical part of this process.
