LECTURE – Remembering and forgetting with Paul Devonshire

Memory is an important element in counselling – there is the reliance on a client’s memory to give an accurate account of his or her personal history, and there is the need for the client to learn, retaining whatever insights that may be gained in a session and taking them into the future.

There are several objectives to the presentation:-

1. To highlight that memory is not a simple unitary concept – memory functions can be divided into different kinds of memory, related to the different senses and different kinds of material that are being handled.

2. To detail what current explanations in neuropsychology help understand how memory, or rather memories work.

3. To consider how the learning process can be assisted.
