Jackee Holder – Paper Therapy: Writing to Grow & Thrive in Life

Wed 11 Mar 2015, 19:00

Now Live Events presents

Jackee Holder – Paper Therapy: Writing to Grow & Thrive in Life

A self-development workshop in partnership with Psychologies Magazine (www.psychologies.co.uk).

Writing is powerful and transformative. Writing attunes emotional intelligence, deepens empathy and creativity and cultivates mindfulness, all tools to live a more meaningful life. What if you had access to a creative library of journaling and writing tools that are unique and fun, easy to apply in everyday life, containing therapeutic and psychological benefits and allowing you to take charge, becoming your own best paper therapist?

In this interactive workshop with speaker, coach, writer and Psychologies Life Lab expert Jackee Holder, you will learn:

– How to get excited about journal writing for wellbeing, career and business growth

– How to have fun regularly writing and making journal entries that don’t feel like a chore

– How journaling is one of the fastest growing ways to self motivate, improve productivity and performance to grow your passion so you stand out from the crowd

– A bundle of techniques to coach yourself on paper including juicy journal prompts, journal templates for letter writing, writing poetry and thank you notes

– How just by turning up to write (and it doesn’t need to be perfect) you improve your chances of greater life satisfaction

Jackee Holder is the author of four non-fiction titles, a freelance writer and business and success coach who has a passion for journaling and trees and who wholeheartedly believes that writing changes lives and lives, are changed, by writing.

Here’s an interview with Jackee discussing the event.

Social Equality in Action – Leading Experiential Workshops for Change

Thu 12 Mar 2015, 19:30

The Adlerian Society UK presents

Adlerian Society London Lecture, 

“Social Equality in Action – Leading experiential workshops for change”

Presented by Dr. Karen John

Social equality requires respectful ways of relating and awareness of our own and others’ goals and needs. However, whatever our personal or work circumstances or roles, we often find it difficult to exercise our rights and good authority and effectively meet our responsibilities. Because we learn through experience and doing, in the workshops I facilitate, I invite participants to take turns exploring with the group the real-life situations within which they find it hard to exercise their good authority. Using ERs and/or psychodrama to identify and enact lifestyle issues and dilemmas, participants are helped to find effective ways forward.

Dr. Karen John is a developmental psychologist who works as a researcher, trainer, lecturer, consultant, Adlerian psychotherapist and clinical and Ph.D. supervisor. With over 40 years’ experience in mental health, social care services and educational leadership, training and research, she is the author of over 60 articles, chapters and booklets. She is an editor of the ASIIP Year Book and a member of the ICASSI faculty and board. Her abiding aim is to help individuals, families, organisations and professionals recognise and overcome internal and external obstacles that interfere with their healthy and socially responsible functioning.

Admission £7 (concessions £4) All welcome. No need to book. CPD certificates are available. Lecture enquiries: evans_patel@hotmail.co.uk  

START AND END TIME: 7.30 – 9.00pm

Nic Marks - Happiness at Work: A crazy idea, or realistically achievable?

A self-development workshop in partnership with Psychologies Magazine (www.psychologies.co.uk)

We typically spend more than 100,000 hours at work in our lifetimes. After sleep, it’s our second biggest daily activity. So, while being happy at work might sound weird - the alternative isn’t attractive.

In this workshop - a mixture of interesting research & hands-on exercises, you will learn:

How happiness at work helps us perform better

How to be happier at work

How to create a happier workplace for you and your colleagues

Nic Marks is a recognised expert in happiness and wellbeing research. His TED talk on the happy Planet index and the Five Ways to Wellbeing has been watched over a million times. Recently he founded Happiness Works - a business with a social purpose - to create happier workplaces.

Tickets: £18
