About The Event

This is the second Professional Development event of 2021. The theme today is The Search for Meaning. 

Dr Richard Whitehead (lecturer in counselling at Swinburne University) will present findings from his PhD thesis - a comprehensive investigation of the benefits of the Buddhist construct 'nonattachment', defined as the absence of fixation on experience needing to be any way in particular. 

Matilda Dawson, Senior Art Therapist in the cancer ward at the Royal Children's Hospital talks about her career and Jackie Burden speaks about the art of reminiscence, working with people living with dementia. Prof Katrina McFerran will discuss how the creative arts therapy program has evolved at the University of Melbourne, building on the success of music therapy in the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music and expanding to fill gaps in Masters training programs for dance and drama therapy.
