Special General Meeting from 9.00 - 9.30 am.

Professional Development:  Why Relationships Matter 9.30 - 3 pm

Following on from the PD presented by Ian Richardson and John Andersen last year, this Professional Development day will focus on the topic “What makes a good relationship and how to get there.”
Rather than presenting a specific theory or model of relationship therapy, Ian will focus on some practical interventions and tools that he has found useful in his many years of counselling experience. The day will incorporate both demonstration & work shop.

What you will take away
An understanding of the ingredients of a good relationship
Practical tools and interventions that can be used immediately
Practical hand-outs to use with clients 
*Whilst this workshop does follow on from the previous presentation, content is independent from the original one and stands alone, if you were unable to attend the original presentation.

Ian has a breadth of rich experience spanning over 40 years of leadership, training, pastoral ministry and counselling, being a Clinical Member of CCAA (Vic) since 1988. He has authored several books, the first being Preparing for Marriage published in 1980, and has a long history in couples counselling. Now retired, his passion has always been to encourage, equip and motivate people to achieve their best.
Please be advised that the PD will also be offered as a WEBINAR.
PD certificates will be sent after the event to all those who attended showing 11 PD points.
