A PRESTIGIOUS new book on the currently popular topic of Resilience is being launched in Penarth today.

Local author Gerrie Hughes will be launching her new book, ‘Competence and Self-care for Counsellors and Psychotherapists’, between 6pm and 8pm on Friday, May 23, at Waterloo Tea in Penarth.

The book was commissioned by Routledge, the respected academic publishers.

While originally written for therapists, the ideas in the book are relevant for any professionals who work with people – teachers, healthcare professionals, social workers and managers. The book shows practitioners how to achieve consistent strong performance while remaining personally resilient.

Gerrie will talk about her ideas at the launch. Anyone who might be interested is welcome to come along.
