GDPR In Private Practice with Peter Jenkins
The session will cover the changes introduced by the General Data Protection Regulation in May 2018, and the implications for counsellors working in private practice, or with ‘portfolio’ employment, i.e. combining different types of paid and voluntary counselling work. Changes brought in by the GDPR include new responsibilities for those processing clients’ personal data, fee payment requirements with the Information Commissioner’s Office, and changes regarding obtaining client consent for processing sensitive data.
Peter will also have copies of his recent book, ‘Professional Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy: Ethics and the Law’ (Sage, 2017), available for sale at the session, for the discounted price of £20 (cash or cheque only).

Working With Groups
Facilitated by Sheila King
Have you wondered about setting up a group and want to have the skills to plan and facilitate it effectively? Or perhaps you’re already running a group and want to increase your capacity to understand and manage group dynamics? This one day experiential workshop will give you a chance to explore some key areas, from a practical perspective, aimed at helping you plan and run groups effectively. The workshop is suitable for practitioners with no previous experience in group work or those with some experience who wish to further develop their skills and who may be involved with a variety of groups including therapeutic groups/ support groups/ psycho-education groups/ personal development groups. The workshop is primarily aimed at counsellors but is suitable for those from a range of backgrounds including psychologists, psychotherapists, and psychological wellbeing practitioners.
