Themes & Topics for 2018...
Welcome to the NIBPS 2018 Annual Conference. We are delighted to be returning to the hugely popular venue of The Ballymascanlon House Hotel, Dundalk for a 3rd year.
This year’s conference is themed [bold]Psychology and Identity[/bold] with many sub themes as follows:
People who misuse substances do so in many contexts, which themselves powerfully influence recovery. This conference is about how clinical and community psychologists can reach beyond traditional substance misuse service boundaries into the settings where people present. Resilience is a key factor in recovery, however that recovery is defined. Building resilience within social contexts such as family, place and community requires us to look beyond traditional approaches to develop flexibility and innovation in how we work.

Transpersonal Psychology addresses the spiritual nature of humankind. Unlike religion and theology, its interest centres on the mind and behaviour; hence it is a branch of Psychology. All the major spiritual and mystical traditions of the world incorporate teachings about the nature of mind and promote behavioural practices intended - amongst other goals - to bring about psychological transformations. Transpersonal psychology addresses these teachings and practices, researching their value and evaluating their relationships to ideas promulgated in Psychology.

An inpatient CAMHS unit should contain an atmosphere of trust, within which staff members feel able to challenge each other and talk openly. No doubt most of us would agree with this but we might be more unsure about how to get there within the contexts we find ourselves. How do we ensure we survive the conflicts and strain of team working while making it work for us and the people we seek to support in a way that is in line with our values?
This year’s theme 'Evolution +/or Revolution' celebrates the value that we offer as Occupational Psychologists: Either by generating new, insightful research, and translating this into practice, or by building on what already exists to strengthen what is already an impressive body of evidence and practice.
Here's what the 2017 conference delegates had to say:
Using primarily experiential exercises, discussion, modelling and roleplaying, we will review progress and obstacles to applying ACT, and we will practice using ACT-based strategies to work on these obstacles. We will practice ACT work in role play, and real play, enhance therapist flexibility and openness using exercises and introduce additional methods.
