Conferences & Workshops

We facilitate workshops, present at conferences and provide bespoke training to healthcare professionals and other professional groups such as solicitors or human resource managers wanting to understand more about specific psychological conditions and how to provide effective support.

Our workshops are tailored to the particular requirements and learning needs of each group. They embrace an interactive learning style allowing for a skilful blending of theory drawn from latest research findings, experiential exercises, reflective learning and clinical skills derived from our long-standing therapeutic experience.  Our approach is integrative, compassionate and empowering with an emphasis on positive growth and development.

The Oxford Development Centre provides psychology workshops on topics related to a wide range of psychological conditions and issues relevant to practising psychologists or psychotherapists. Our specialism lies in working with all stress and trauma related problems, including very complex trauma presentations falling on various levels of the dissociative spectrum, including Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). We have in-depth clinical experience helping survivors recover from narcissistic and abusive relationships and can provide training in this area.

We are committed to facilitating therapists’ own personal development and growth processes, including aspects relating to their spiritual growth and we very much enjoy running experiential development or specialist supervision workshops for psychologists and psychotherapists. Our workshops are suitable for therapists, healthcare professionals, professional interest groups, healthcare and voluntary services and businesses and organisations.  We also love to present about our approaches at conferences in workshops or keynote addresses.

If you are interested in organising a workshop with us or would like to invite us to a conference please contact us. We are happy to travel abroad to offer trainings or bespoke workshops that are tailored to your specific requirements. We look forward to hearing from you.
