The Fifth Province
Venue: The Sandymount Hotel, Dublin 4.
Date: Tuesday 11th February 2014
Time: 7.00pm – 9.00pm
Topic: The Fifth Province
The Fifth Province Model was developed in the early 1980s by Dr. Imelda McCarthy, Phil Kearney and Dr. Nollaig Byrne. The notion of the ‘Fifth Province’ is derived from Irish mythology, where the word for Province is ‘coiced’ or ‘cuige’ which also means ‘fifth’, a space where anything is possible. Working in Ireland in the 1980s, the Fifth Province group applied this idea to their work with Irish Families to facilitate both client and therapists to move with one another co-creatively.
At the Systemic Café, Nollaig Byrne, Imelda McCarthy and Phil Kearney will be interviewed by Marie Keenan. This will be a wonderful opportunity to hear more about the model which has had a major influence on systemic theory and practice both in Ireland and internationally.
A FREE GLASS OF WINE, BEER OR BALLYGOWAN AWAITS YOU! Continuing Professional Development (CPD) = 2 hours CPD certificates will be issued by the Family Therapy Assoc. of Ireland (FTAI). See you @ the Systemic Café
