Linda HarshmanIt is with profound sadness that we bring you the news that Linda Harshman passed away on 4th April after a brave fight with illness.  Linda had been the administrator of the William Glasser Institute for many years.  It was her deep understanding of Choice Theory that helped shape Institute policy and practice.  A favourite phrase of Dr. Glasser's, was "ask Linda".  He placed full trust in her and the decisions she took on his behalf.

Course A465

The North Dublin Branch of the Institute of Guidance Counsellors in the person of Bill Core organised a closed Basic Week that was held in the beautiful environment of Malahide Community School from 24th to 28th June 2013.

The course was facilitated by Brian Lennon.  Guidance Counsellors Doreen, Eilish, Marion, Sinead, Bill, Deirdre and Caroline put in a good week of work and laughter!

A very successful event!  With over 160 people in attendance, this European conference attracted members from USA, Australia, and Korea as well as Europeans from Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia Herzogovina, Finland, UK, Malta and Ireland.  All the evidence would appear to support the idea of having International Conferences every two years with other national and regional conferences in the intervening years.  The organisers planned a very complete event with an amazing range of workshops and several tours to local beauty spots.


 Ireland was well represented by Arthur Dunne, Ken Lyons, Jimmie Woods and Brian Lennon.
