Workshop, Weekend Bhuddist Psychology

Dukkha, Trauma and Distress  MARCH 24 & 25 2018

Buddhist teaching suggests that our relationship to affliction, dukkha, frequently causes us compounded suffering and misery. It is our fear of dukkha which leads us to build up psychological defences which are the habit energies driving our lives. As a result we tend to withdraw from experience and disconnect from others. Mindfulness was a significant aspect of the Buddha’s prescription for facing affliction. In the modern setting, mindfulness practices are commonly used to help people suffering from stress, anxiety and depression. Such people often have a history of painful life events, including sometimes major trauma or ongoing abuse. On this weekend we will explore the way that trauma, abuse and distress impact on people’s psychology, and will look at ways in which we can listen effectively and supportively when people are experiencing distress.

 
Other- Centred Approach

Buddhist Psychology and Other-Centred Approach, an approach developed in the UK which offers a practical and positive therapeutic approach based on Buddhist psychology and a combination of Western and Eastern therapy.

This workshop is practical and will be useful to anyone who wants to explore human communication and experience from a personal or professional interest. Whilst the workshop will offer valuable CPD training for professional psychotherapists and counsellors, it will also be helpful to those in other caring professions or to people seeking to explore their own experience.

Caroline Brazier is the lecturer of this workshop. She is a Buddhist and has practiced for more than twenty years as a therapist, trainer and lecturer. She is course leader of the Tariki Training Programme in Other-Centred Approach in England. She has written six books on Buddhism and psychology and is author of many chapters and papers on the subject. To find out more about her work, see www.buddhistpsychology.info or watch the video.


Buddhist Psychology

Buddhist psychology provides insight into how people experience the world and create their own reality. This personal reality takes the form of a protective bubble, insulating the person from unwanted experiences to some degree, but also imposing limitations on their life. This approach differs from Western psychology in its way of approaching psychological problems. Whilst Western therapies often focus predominantly on the feelings and experiences of the person, refocusing the client’s attention onto the self-world with questions like: "what does it mean for you?" And "How do you feel it?", a Buddhist approach encourages deeper involvement with ‘the other’. It is a deep enquiry into reality in all its complexity, using questions such as: "So what is really true for them?" and "I wonder what that means for her?" In this way, the client is invited to connect more fully with his lived experience, loosening the hold of prejudice and assumptions, and achieving a more positive outward-looking attitude. The resulting encounter with others and with the environment is profoundly healing. Other-centred method provides an approach to mental problems which draws on a different perspective.

    Review by Suzan, Posted on 31-12-2016, 5 Stars.
    In oktober 2016 voor het eerst deelgenomen aan het boeddhistische psychologie weekend en direct de volgende geboekt! Ik vond het leerzaam, inspirerend en verrassend. Ik had verwacht dat we veel zouden mediteren maar dat was niet zo, daarvoor in de plaats deden we mooie reflectie oefeningen. Ik heb er veel aan gehad en Ik kijk uit naar het volgende weekend en laat mij graag weer inspireren.
