BPS Conferences


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?
