2017 AGM/CPD Event in Dublin – Changes to Programme

I regret to inform you that we have had to make a change to tonight’s programme. Heather Dale was due to present – “The hidden virtue: Towards a new understanding of humility in counselling and psychotherapy”, but is unfortunately unable to make it due to a bereavement. Dr David Carey has kindly stepped in at the last minute to take over the 5.15pm slot and will deliver a presentation on:

Remember Alfred Adler: Psychology, Purpose and Meaning

Alfred Adler, a contemporary of Freud and his chosen successor, is now no more than a small chapter in a book or a brief lecture in university courses. Yet Adler was the first of the great psychologists to put meaning and purpose, belonging and striving for unity, in the forefront of his theory. It’s time to remember Adler and ask an important question. Has psychology lost it’s soul?
