Skills for Health: working group update
The Skills for Health-sponsored consultation into the proposed future national occupational standards (NOS) for psychotherapy and counselling has moved into the working group phase.
HGI is a member of the cognitive and behavioural therapy working group, and is represented by Ivan Tyrrell.
He reports, "My impression from the first session is that the working group is open to human givens ideas, and the RIGAAR model (rapport building, information gathering, accessing trsources, agreeing strategies for change and rehearsing desired outcomes) in particular. Many of the other representatives were interested in how the approach is being implemented and took copies of our latest book An Idea in Practice."

Would you know if someone you care about has depression? Most people probably think that they would, but it isn’t necessarily as obvious as you might expect. Indeed, until some simple screening questionnaires were introduced for GPs to use, half of them were missing the diagnosis in patients that came to consult them.
Last night, while you slept, you went into the REM state and dreamed. You probably don't remember because, for a very good reason, we evolved not to. However all normal humans go into the REM state and dream every night and most mammals show evidence of this brain pattern too.
