 “Early Recollections – Personal Treasure Troves” – presented by Bruce Tate

Early Recollections (ERs) play a central role in Adlerian therapy.  In ERs we uncover strengths and resources alongside nonverbal messages and descriptions of how we view ourselves, others and life.  We might also gain insight, including about our movement and priorities in life.  Working with ERs helps to develop insight and encouragement and along with considering personal strengths, creativity and resources, can help promote choice and an improved sense of personal wellbeing.

During the session, Bruce Tate will introduce theory related to ERs, outline the basic practice of working with them in the context of Adlerian theory and then move on to give a demonstration to show how to start to explore a memory.

Admission £7 (concs £4). All welcome. No need to book. CPD certificates are available.
