Charles O'Leary

Charles O'Leary Masterclass

A Person Centred Approach to Couple and Family Counselling


Sunday 7th October 2007. 10am - 4pm


Cost £110.00(inc VAT) – including lunch & refreshments

 In a Masterclass, Charles O'Leary Ph.D. will present Counselling Couples and Families: a person-centred approach.  Sharing his more twenty-five year experience working with couples and families, Charles will present a theoretical framework for relationship counselling, the advantages and challenges of this type of work as well as many examples from his day-to-day practice.

Charles will present an overview of couple and family counselling practiced in the spirit of the person centred approach. He will offer:
· The Rogerian Core conditions applied to work with couples and families
· A Job Description of a person-centred couple and family therapist
· The practice of multi-directional partiality (or being on everybody's side at the same time)
· The common problems and opportunities of the experienced as well as the beginning couple therapist. (Beginners' mind is always helpful)
· Video examples of his work
· Opportunity for discussion and questions and sharing

Charles has been teaching family and couple work in graduate schools in San Diego, California and throughout the United Kingdom, Italy and several states in the US. 

"Charlie O'Leary has a powerful reputation as a family therapist and as a teacher of family therapy.  Above all he is an observer of families and family life whose commentary on what he observes combines truth and humour in a fashion which might be likened in British terms to 'John Cleese with a doctorate in therapy.'"
Dave Mearns

Charles O'Leary,Ph.D is the author of Counselling Couples and Families: a Person Centred Approach (London: Sage, 1999, translated into Italian and Japanese), the first book integrating Carl Rogers' principles with the practice of couple and family therapy.
