Interested in building or deepening your clinical skills in Coherence Therapy?
Although this weekend intensive will not require prior experience or training in Coherence Therapy, it will promote intermediate-level skill building. US-based CT trainer Niall Geoghegan, Psy.D. will provide live demonstrations and direct coaching to all attendees. Click the 'Attend Event' button to read the full details of this peer-oriented workshop (clicking will not automatically book the ticket).
In line with the central philosophy of CT, emphasis will be on direct experiential learning. This will be interwoven with live and recorded sessions and presentation by both Niall and intermediate-level peers from the existing Australian CT practitioner community.
Both days of the workshop will include live and recorded demonstrations of the process, as well as experiential exploration of how to create the powerful experiential exercises that make CT so effective. Real-time input from Niall and the intermediate level peer-coaches will sharpen the crucial skills of creating vivid and powerful Symptom Deprivations, Overt Statements, Sentence Completions and more. This will be augmented throughout the workshop by didactic presentations, Q&A, and processing of participants’ experiences.
Attendees of previous CT peer-learning workshops in Australia said:
“my way of working with clients changed from this day forward”
“I was feeling un-inspired and disconnected – this has energised me, reminded me why I ever wanted to do therapeutic work”
“a terrific way to learn, safely, in-company, delightful”
“an excellent way to learn at your own level, a co-learning model suitable for all levels”
Bruce Ecker will join by video conference during the workshop.
Previously unseen video of case studies with Bruce will be shown in this workshop.
Who is this for?
Participation is for therapists and counsellors, mental health clinicians, certified coaches, or students in accredited graduate training programs.
Although beginners are welcome, this will not be an introductory workshop. Participants will need to be familiar with the basic ideas and vocabulary of Coherence Therapy, a primer on which will be made available online before the workshop.
The Australian Psychological Society advise that APS Members may accrue Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours by participating in activities that they determine to be relevant to their specific professional approaches, and professional development goals. CPD activities do not need to be endorsed by the APS. A certificate of attendance will be available on request.
Attendance at the 15-18th May CT workshop in the Yarra Valley, Victoria (75min north of Melbourne CBD) is highly recommended as preparation for participation, for those who have not attended a previous training or workshop. See link for more information and booking.
The size of this intensive workshop is limited. Early registration is encouraged.
This weekend intensive will promote beginner and intermediate-level skill building through active participatory learning.

In addition, he incorporates techniques drawn from a wide variety of other therapy modalities, including Process Work, Gestalt, Hakomi, Inner Child Work, Psychodynamic Psychotherapies, and incorporates Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) strategies when appropriate.
