The Psychology of Bragging

Welcome to Edition 323 of Institute Inbrief. Why we as human beings are so prone to boasting has been the subject of much recent psychological (and neuroscientific) attention. Equally, researchers are now looking into the question of why we hate it when we are subject to others' boasting. This edition's featured article looks into both those questions and offers a few tips for dealing with a braggart (or helping a client who is).


Also in this edition:

  1. The Eclectic Therapist (Order Now)
  2. The Benefits of Intentional Daydreaming
  3. Positive Psychology: The Underpinning Notions
  4. Helping Clients with Sleep Issues
  5. Quotations, Seminar Timetables & More!

Over the last few years there has been much speculation regarding regulation of the Counselling Industry and the possibility of government regulated standards for training of Counsellors. In this edition, we present a Press Release from the Australian Counselling Association (ACA) that explains recent industry developments that definitively concludes that government will NOT be introducing training standards, or regulating, the Counselling Profession. This critical development not only safeguards the vast majority of practicing counsellors, which are vocationally trained, but it continues to ensure the AIPC Diploma of Professional Counselling remains the most prominent, flexible and viable training option for those wanting to pursue a career in Counselling.

 

In this edition, you will also find a case study which contains application of the Empty Chair Technique (from Gestalt Therapy) and cognitive restructuring (from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).

 

See you next fortnight!

to Institute Inbrief.  Seeing as we are at the start of another year, we thought we would spend some time going over the various course and support options available to students during their studies. This is particularly beneficial to new students embarking on their studies with the Institute or those continuing their courses. Intothehumanbrain will show you how versatile the human brain is and hear from Patricia Baird about her studies with the Institute.
