Dear Journal Club members,
It gives me great pleasure to announce our next Journal Club:
Speakers: Elma Hofmeyr – Registered Counsellor and Christine Buchanan – Registered Counsellor
Topic: Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
Date: Tuesday 24th June 2014
Time: 17h00 – 18h00
Venue: Headway, 85 First Road, Hyde Park
About the speakers: Elma is a Registered Counsellor in private practice with an interest in Logotherapy and Couples Therapy. She has also been trained in mediation. Elma is well known to Headway as she completed her counselling internship here and has a good grasp of the effect of Brain Injury on the individual as well as the family. Christine is the Therapy Manager at Headway Hyde Park and has also had exposure to the effects of Brain Injury on couple and family dynamics.
About the topic: Professor Giles Yeates gave a talk on the efficacy of EFT for couples living with Brain Injury at the SANRA Conference last year, which prompted Elma and Christine to attend a workshop and externship earlier this year in Bloemfontein. They will be giving feedback on the techniques learned at the workshop.
