Event 1 - Naming and shaming therapists: Protecting the public or harming therapy? - Philip Cox

All the key professional registration bodies report an increase in the number of formal complaints. One response has been to update codes of ethics to protect the public from unethical and incompetent practices. It may surprise therapists to learn that irrespective of a client’s presenting issue, the therapeutic modality applied or practice context within the Western world, around 10% of people attending therapy report experiencing their therapy as harmful. It seems the policy of naming and shaming may itself contribute to further difficulties and anxiety, and so may engender defensive practices and more complaints. This presentation suggests the awareness, discussion and management of unintended harm signals good and ethically-grounded practice, rather than poor clinical practice.

How “Private” is Your Practice in Cyberspace? Are you Tech Ready? Presented by Catherine Knibbs : 20.15 - 21.15

Cyberspace offers Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Psychologists a space to connect, advertise and work using the medium of technology. However this technology comes with risks and dangers for us as practitioners, from our own social media to cyber security. This is much more than GDPR and Facebook. Our privacy and our clients’ can be compromised if we don’t understand how cyberspace operates and how our presence in this space can affect us. The talk will give a brief overview of the issues we can face with Q&A about any of this.

Venue : Renaissance City Centre Hotel, Blackfriars St, Manchester, M3 2EQ
