Workshop, 8th July – Feedback

Dr. Paul Lim ” Managing Vulnerability ans Shame – a case study”

“VERY INSPIRING AND EDUCATION TALK. THIS EMPHASISES THE IMPORTANCE OF RAPPORT WITH A PATIENT WHICH OVERRIDES ANY OTHER “THERAPY” WE PROVIDE.” RAJ, PSYCHIATRIST

“I FOUND THE LECTURE QUITE INTERESTING PRESENTATION, ALTHOUGH IT’S NOT APPLICABLE IN MY WORK BUT FOUND THE USE OF HYPNOSIS WITH BIPOLAR DEPRESSION QUITE INTERESTING. I WAS NOT AWARE IN SUCH COMPLICATED CASES, HYPNOSIS COULD BE USED IN SUCH AN EFFECTIVE WAY. MY THANKS TO PAUL FOR THIS PRESENTATION.” Fakhteh

“THIS SESSION WAS SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT. DEALING WITH A PATIENT WITH COMPLEX PERSONAL AND SOCIAL PROBLEMS OVER MANY YEARS CAN BE A HUGE CHALLENGE IN GENERAL PRACTICE, AND WE ALL DO IT DIFFERENTLY. SOME OF THE ISSUES RAISED COULD BE DESCRIBED AS CONTROVERSIAL, AND WOULD HAVE MERITED DETAILED AND THOUGHTFUL DISCUSSION. I THINK THE ZOOM MEETING WAS ILL SUITED TO THIS. THERE WAS VERY LITTLE TIME FOR QUESTIONS OR DISCUSSION, AND I FELT THERE WAS AN ABSENCE OF ANY SENSE OF CONFIDENTIALITY OR SAFETY. AS IT WAS, A TENTATIVE QUESTION ABOUT THE ETHICS OF SHARING A THERAPIST’S PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH A PATIENT COULD NOT BE GIVEN THE SENSITIVE CONSIDERATION IT MERITED, AND MOST PARTICIPANTS STAYED SILENT. I THINK AN ONLINE MEETING COULD BE USED PERFECTLY EFFECTIVELY FOR SMALL GROUP DISCUSSIONS OF THE KIND THAT MIGHT HAVE WORKED HERE, BUT THE GROUP RULES WOULD NEED TO BE CLEAR AND UNDERSTOOD.” ANON
