A two day-day workshop that teaches you how to reflect and pray when dealing with difficult people

Day 1: Tuesday 19th May 2020, 10:00am – 4:00pm 

Day 2: Tuesday 30th June 2020, 10:00am – 4:00pm 

The Old Palace, Deansway, Worcester, WR1 2JE 


This two-day workshop gives you the chance to learn, reflect and pray in relation to what may be going on - in you and in them - when you find someone ‘difficult’. 

Delivered by two experienced trainers, Sally-Anne Bubbers and Jane Tillier, the two full days are separated by six weeks, to allow time and space for reflection and integration. There are just 16 spaces on the workshop, to enable engagement and participation for all those taking part. This course has been developed in the Diocese of Lichfield, and is in increasing demand in other places. 

The workshop includes: 

• a brief overview of attachment styles.
• an introduction to the neurobiology of the human triggering system.
• some psychological models that can help us understand relational dynamics.
• some ways to resource ourselves around people and events we find difficult.
• some mindfulness and contemplative practices.
• ways of understanding the strategies that people can use to protect their vulnerability.
• group work, reflection and activities. 

Sally-Anne Bubbers is a psychotherapeutic counsellor who works with the Lichfield Diocesan Listening Ear network, and for the Diocese of Worcester. 

The Revd Dr Jane Tillier is the Bishop’s Adviser for Pastoral Care and Wellbeing in the Diocese of Lichfield, and a trainee psychotherapist. 

We hope to run this course again in 2021.
