Why is it that some people react to seemingly trivial setbacks with distress, while others power through life-changing tragedies showing barely any emotional upset whatsoever? How do some people shine brilliantly at public speaking when others crumble? Why do some people sink into depression when life has dealt them a poor hand, while in others it merely increases their resilience?
The Faculty is pleased to present this half-day event on the Psychology of Substances and Sex. More recently referred to as ‘Chemsex’, sex and drugs have often been experienced and enjoyed in conjunction. However for some people this can pose unintended physical and mental health risks. In recognition of a growing need, especially with men who have sex with men, this event is aimed at healthcare professionals working with people experiencing difficulties in their combined sex and substance use.
Across the media there has been considerable criticism about students and children’s use of mobile devices, along with plentiful anecdotes across education about students being continually distracted by technology. With the increasing use of technology across home, work and school most people are tethered to some form of digital device. This talk will suggest that ‘always connected’ should not be seen as being good or bad.
This workshop will enable attendees to learn a useful exercise to explore relationships that you would like to understand better, make a change in or have some practical help with. It will work with any relationship – work, home or social.
Attendees will be invited to think about a range of trauma and attachment related presentations and processes encountered by practitioners working in forensic settings, using a bio psycho social model.

A recent survey of North West Branch among trainee members identified Psychodynamic Therapy as a preferred topic for the Trainee event this year. As the local university programme in Counselling Psychology focuses on Humanistic and CBT models, trainees identified that they would like to develop their knowledge and skills in psychodynamic models of therapy. We hope that this event would meet that, giving the trainees a good foundation on psychodynamic therapy. This is a full day training with two parts.

In this talk, Dr Joanne Lloyd will tell you about her research into people's motivations for gambling, and challenge the notion that gambling is 'the son of avarice and the father of despair'.
Joanne will explain why many of us love to gamble, besides simply out of greed, and discuss why, for some, 'a dollar won is twice as sweet as a dollar earned'. She will talk about the despair that can come from gambling, but also about the enjoyment, and highlight some of the things that can tip the balance towards one extreme or the other.
This event will include the DCP Faculty for Eating Disorders AGM.

Whether in sport, military, business or medical environments, performing at one’s best provides a multitude of opportunities for gaining personal glory. Narcissistic individuals crave admiration and glory, and thus the performance domain constitutes an ideal medium to explore narcissistic behaviour. This talk examines the relation between narcissism and performance and demonstrates that narcissists’ performance is contingent upon perceived opportunities for self-enhancement along with some potential explanatory mechanism for this effect.
