The development of an autumn programme is also well underway and will be announced shortly. It will initially consist of a variety of weekend courses on key subjects (such as addiction, depression, treating trauma, anxiety disorders, brief therapy skills, psychosis, storytelling and the use of metaphor), as well as some new titles.
