A psychologist and client talk


Please note: due to a website issue, the start time for this event is displaying as 9am - however, it actually begins at 9.30am. 

Have you noticed how a difficult session with a client can impact your whole day?

Do you find yourself reacting to family pressures because of something that happened with your team at work?

Bobby Moore will present a webinar examining how psychologists become emotionally impacted by their work. Bobby will consider the invitation from contemporary neuroscience to re-think the theories which inform our practice.

Concepts such as emotional resonance when doing the work well, how mirror neurons explain the pain which we experience when our clients are in pain, how multidisciplinary teams mirror the emotions of their clients, and how we can use these theories to manage these emotions and complex dynamics, both within therapy and within teams.

Dr Robert M Moore

D.Psych., M.Ed., M.Med.Sci. (Psychotherapy), Adv.Dip.Sup.

Bobby is currently based in Belfast and is self-employed with a blended practice as psychoanalytic psychotherapist, supervisor, trainer, mediator, executive coach and facilitator.  

He engages principally with multi-disciplinary teams across psychology, counselling, health care, education, social care and justice services in cross-cultural contexts in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas.

His particular interest is in exploring the potential for applying insights from contemporary neuroscience to personal, team and cultural dynamics as well as the radical reframing of inherited models of professional practice in the light of emerging knowledge.

As a product of the D.Psych. programme at Middlesex University he published ‘Reflexive Supervision: a workbook for learning within and across professions’ (2016).
