One in ten Victorians experience stalking victimisation, many suffering psychological, social, and even physical harm as
a result. Psychologists can help to effectively manage stalking situations by identifying and dealing with mental disorder
and assisting stalkers to change their behaviour. Unfortunately, stalking remains misunderstood by many clinicians and
is often a source of confusion and concern. This presentation will review the Victorian anti-stalking legislation, help
psychologists identify relevant clinical issues when working with stalkers and their victims, and discuss recent research in
the field. Participants will develop a clear understanding of what stalking is, the types of risk posed by stalkers, and some
ways of assessing and managing clients who stalk. This presentation is relevant to all psychologists working with clients
in forensic, clinical, or counselling settings.

Dr Troy McEwan is a clinical and forensic psychologist jointly based at the Forensicare Community Forensic Mental Health
Service and the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science, Monash University. She completed a DPsych(Clin) investigating
risk assessment in stalkers at Monash University and is co-author of the Stalking Risk Profile: Guidelines for Assessing and
Managing Stalkers. She is currently conducting a programme of ARC funded research into the structured risk assessment
and treatment of stalkers. The goal of this programme is to develop effective evidence-based strategies for managing
stalkers, and in turn reduce the psychological and physical harm experienced by both stalkers and their victims.

Points:              5.5 – Specialist Professional Development points for members of the following APS College:
                     Counselling. Members of other APS Colleges and non-College members may claim the equivalent
                     generalist points.

The practice of counselling psychology is greatly enhanced by an understanding of current concepts in temperament
research. Not only is an individual’s temperament closely related to their predominant mood state, but it is also the most
important factor in determining their general life trajectory and their needs as clients.

The significant biological origins of temperament have been confirmed by modern genetic research and elaborated by
our improved understanding of animal behaviour. In establishing these links we are now in a better position to see
psychosocial realities in terms of our evolutionary background. This is a new way of approaching the biopsychosocial
model, not as a prescription for a simplistic sociobiological position, but as a basis of assessment and treatment across
the range of health disciplines.

The presenter, Dr Paul Holman, will look at contemporary models of temperament and propose a number of basic guidelines
that can connect these theoretical constructs with practical client counselling. He will also link the idea of temperament
dimensions to traditional healing systems from East and West and draw on insights that have been empirically established
over hundreds of years. Clinical vignettes will be used to highlight the varying counselling styles required for clients with
differing personalities.

Dr Paul Holman is a consultant psychiatrist with over thirty-five years experience working in general psychiatry, substance
abuse, psychotherapy and mind-body medicine. He lectures doctors and psychotherapy trainees and teaches in the Masters
of Counselling Psychology at La Trobe University. He is the author of Hawks, Doves and Other Humans (Wind and Water
2009).

in the treatment of depression, anxiety, PTSD, Complex PTSD, trauma and abuse. This experiential training will highlight
theoretical as well as practical ways of working with clients with many forms of psychological distress. Each session will
provide opportunities to observe live demonstrations as well as take part in practical triad work. All participants will be
provided extensive reading list as well as a copy of the PowerPoint slides that are presented during the training. A 30
minute test will be given on the sixth day to test participants’ knowledge, understanding as well as their competence of

Working with infants and their mothers is embraced world-wide as a key priority in mental health promotion. How can a
community go about implementing a Parent And Infant Relationship Support (PAIRS) group program? In this instance, four
agencies (Kilmany Uniting Care, Gippsland Lakes Community Health, East Gippsland Aboriginal Cooperative, and Gippsland
Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) formed an Infant Wellbeing Working Group. This collaborative partnership
organised a training program for a cross section of local health professionals, then planned a process for selecting mothers
and babies from diverse cultures to form a first PAIRS group. This presentation will discuss the challenges encountered,
and the innovations developed to meet the needs of the diverse communities involved in this exciting journey.

                                Wednesday 17 February – Friday 19 February 2010
                                     The Women’s College, Sydney, Australia

This interdisciplinary conference provides a forum for inquiry into the vicissitudes of pain: its nature and existential
significance, and the many ways in which pain plays a part in our lives. Of particular concern, too, are the biological,
social and interpersonal circumstances within which our reactions to pain occur.

health and safety issues for the promotion of the quality of working life. The discipline’s researchers and practitioners
aspire to foster healthy workplaces in which people may produce, serve, grow, and be valued. Healthy workplaces are ones
where people use their talents and gifts to achieve high performance, high satisfaction, and well-being.

The Study Group Network for advanced PD continued to grow last year with 20 study groups being held across Melbourne
and outer suburbs. Many thanks to all the co-coordinators and presenters for their excellent contributions.

The response from members so far clearly indicates that there is a real need for high-quality affordable PD amongst APS
members and we are keen to start more study groups across Melbourne in 2010.

We are looking for new co-ordinators to help host study groups for our excellent presenters. What better way to do your
PD than from your own home or office on the topic of your choice?

If you would like to know more about becoming a coordinator please contact:
Jill Wright on jill@vicavepsych.com.au or 9682 4000.


                                  Study Group Program: 2010
Many groups were still being finalised at the date of publication, including Mindfulness, ACT, Media Mastery, Teens and
Technology and Work Place Bullying.

         Christians in Professional Practice in Psychology
                                  Friday 30 April and Saturday 1 May 2010
                                     The Novotel, The Esplanade, St Kilda

Throughout the ages, God has worked in his people to display his amazing multi-faceted wisdom. This conference offers
a display not only of the work of committed professional expertise but also a reflection of the work of God in the world
of psychology today.

The Keynote Speakers will be:

	   •	   Dr Art Wouters MAPS
         The significance of Trinitarian Theology in the practice of psychology

         Art heads up the School of Counseling and Psychology at Tabor College in Victoria. He was born in Holland
         and came from South Africa to Australia in 2006. Art has worked mainly in private practice, graduate and
         post-graduate education, and consulted to business and churches in the area of counseling, leadership and
         self-deception. Before coming to Australia, Art spent a dozen years working with a community development
         organisation in South Africa concerned with victims of political oppression.


	   •	   Dr Irene Alexander MAPS
         Rainbow colours: Wisdom and ways of knowing in psychology

         Irene Alexander is a psychologist and spiritual director. She is Dean of Social Sciences at Christian Heritage
         College in Brisbane where her interest is the integration of spirituality, counseling, psychology and real life.
         These reflections have contributed to the publication of three books Dancing with God: Transformation through
         relationship; You can’t play the Game if you don’t know the Rules: How relationships work and Interweavings:
         Conversations between Narrative Therapy and Christian Faith.
