It does not aim simply to uncover these issues, but rather to understand and experience them so that a change in character can occur.

This course is intended to be of particular interest in people working in, or interested in working in:

  • Counselling
  • Psychotherapy
  • Psychology
  • Health professions
  • Caring roles
