THE

TRANSFORMATIONAL

POWER

OF

THERAPEUTIC

MEMORY

RECONSOLIDATION:

Rewiring the Brain

AND

Reprogramming the Mind


Martha Stark, MD
 

 

 


 

Do you wish you had a better grasp

of psychodynamic concepts,

brain-based strategies, and their

application to clinical situations?

 

My INTENSIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY

BOOT CAMP on MODEL 5

will feature my most current

and innovative thinking

about the actual "process"

of healing,

relevant for both mind and body

and both short- and long-term

therapeutic work.

 

Whatever your level of expertise,

this rigorous

ONLINE PSYCHOTHERAPY TRAINING

will allow you to learn remotely

– and at your own pace –

from the comfort and convenience

of your office or home.

 

The course will feature four 2-hour
video recorded lectures
and 260+ Narrated PowerPoint Slides
– available to participants 24/7 –
along with a comprehensive list
of recommended readings.
 
In addition,

there will be an "online forum"
featuring “threaded discussions”

and moderated by me

in a way that

not only encourages

the lively exchange
of theoretical / clinical material
but also provides

the impetus
for “playing” with ideas.
 
Over the course of the entire month,
I will be maintaining
a very active "online presence,"
thoughtfully responding to all
comments / reflections / questions
that you might have.
 
There will also be a

final 1-hour “live”

Q&A Zoom Video Session,
which will give us an opportunity
to “meet” face to face.

I am very much looking forward to
the INTENSIVE BOOT CAMP this fall –
it is such an exhilarating way for me
both to teach and to learn…
 
Particularly exciting for me

is the fact that this online course

will "debut" and feature
the recently minted Model 5 of

my Psychodynamic Synergy Paradigm

A QUANTUM – NEUROSCIENTIFIC
APPROACH TO

"ANALYSIS PARALYSIS"


I will demonstrate the
transformational power of
"optimally stressful"
psychotherapeutic interventions
that repeatedly

and forcibly juxtapose
"anticipated" and "actual" –
such that the tension created
by the patient's experience

of this mismatch

will ultimately prompt
the locking in

(or "reconsolidation")
of new, updated, and

more empowering narratives

in the place

of the old, outdated, and

disempowering ones.

I will be proposing that
"therapeutic memory reconsolidation"
is indeed

the organizing principle
whereby the brain

can be rewired
and the mind reprogrammed

in both short- and long-term

intensive psychotherapies –

such that a more evolved

and more compassionate
perspective can be achieved

and new meaning made

of previously unmastered

early-on relational traumas.

Whereas

the psychodynamically informed
Models 1 – 4

are in the tradition of understanding

our history as our destiny,
which we are condemned to repeat

unless we can remember it,

the brain-based

Model 5

focuses on

our destiny as our choice,

which is ours to create if,

in the present,

we can but take embodied

ownership of our desire

to extricate ourselves

from the ties that bind us

to our past

so that we can create

a new narrative for ourselves

going forward.

In the evocative words

of Soren Kierkegaard –

 

"Life can only be understood backwards;

but it must be lived forwards."
 

In this course,

I will be presenting
theoretical material

as well as
both brief and extended

clinical vignettes

to demonstrate

the interweaving

of theory with practice.

I do hope you will

join me online

With apology,

but enrollment is on a

first come / first served basis.

The course is always

oversubscribed.

Registrations will therefore

be "capped" once again this year.

 

This is what I have sent out to those

who have asked for more specifics –
______________________________________________________________________

 

For starters, let me hasten to reassure you that, because everything is "online," it is all available 24/7. That's one of the joys of this course.

So there is no real "agenda / schedule" at all – except that, at the beginning of each of the 4 weeks, you will be able to "access" (online) the 2-hour Narrated (by me!) PowerPoint Slide Show for that week – again, which you can listen to at any time whatsoever – from that point until the end of the course!

You will also have PDF access to copies of all the PowerPoint Slides (which you can download), so that you can take notes on them as you watch and listen to the Narrated PowerPoint Slide Show every week.

Meanwhile, the simultaneous "online forum" with "threaded discussions" (which you will quickly learn to "navigate" once the course starts) will be "open" for contributions from participants 24/7 – and, believe me, things get quite active with all kinds of amazing and inspired clinical / theoretical posts by the various participants in the course.

You will be able to participate as much or as little as you might wish!!  ...and, interestingly, the "online forum" offers a compelling and nourishing mix of intimacy and anonymity.

Meanwhile, I myself maintain a very active online presence (literally "dedicating" myself to the course and to "living online" the entire month) – commenting on everybody's posts and offering many (new ones) of my own!!

So it will be a busy / intense / exciting / rich / collaborative learning experience for us all.

The readings (full texts of which are offered through the "portal") are simply "suggested" – and not at all "required."

You will have plenty else on your hands – what with the four 2-hour PowerPoint Slide Shows (all of which are "action-packed"!) every week – and all the fascinating, powerfully thought-provoking online "posts."

There will be an optional 1-hour "live" Zoom Video Session offered during the 3rd week of the course – and I will probably offer 3 options for you (in the hope that 1 of the 3 times I offer will work for you). The actual times have yet to be determined.

So there is nothing to do prior to Saturday / October 9th – nothing to worry about – just be prepared for a wonderfully exciting, stimulating, evocative, delightful, inspiring, and busy month beginning that day!!

This 4-week-long online course that I offer every fall through William James College is truly the most exciting teaching / learning experience that I have all year.

I do believe that you will not be disappointed!!  😊

If you are interested, please do not hesitate to sign up – because the course is oversubscribed every year and, albeit with reluctance and apology, William James College always "caps" registrations.
