The Talking Therapies team has been busy giving this website an overhaul, switching it over from the Theology and Therapy theme it started with, to this new one of “Conversations about Counselling, Spirituality and Faith”. This marks our own transition from historical research to knowledge exchange with contemporary practitioner communities.
Please have a look around and discover what we’ve been up to over the past year. From developing Readers’ Theatre scripts out of our oral history material, to running workshops all over Scotland, we’ve shared our research with more than 150 people, and learned a great deal about the importance of faith and spirituality to many contemporary practitioners.
After doing 16 workshops with counsellors, church elders, chaplains, clergy and members of the interested public, we’ve put together some best practice suggestions on working with oral history material in exploring contemporary professional work and identity.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or comments.
