This intensive ONLINE PSYCHOTHERAPY TRAINING

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.

 

With an emphasis always

on the translation of theory into practice

and based upon my book

MODES OF THERAPEUTIC ACTION:

Enhancement of Knowledge,

Provision of Experience,

and Engagement in Relationship

the training will focus on helping you develop

“optimally stressful” and “powerfully effective”

psychotherapeutic interventions for your patients.

 

You will learn to craft “anxiety-provoking”

but ultimately “growth-promoting” interventions

custom designed to address

– always with compassion and never judgment –

the inherent conflict that exists within our patients

between what they know in their heads

and what they feel in their hearts.

 

The therapeutic provision of “optimal stress”

– against the backdrop of empathic attunement,

authentic engagement, and secure attachment –

is indeed sometimes the magic ingredient needed

to overcome the almost universal resistance to change

that we so frequently encounter in our patients

with longstanding unmastered relational traumas.

 

A Christopher Logue poem,

which speaks directly to the power

of using "optimal stress" to provoke

transformation and growth,

captures the essence of what my course is about –

Come to the edge.

We might fall.

 Come to the edge.

It's too high!
COME TO THE EDGE!

And they came

and he pushed

and they flew...

Throughout the month, I will be offering you

not only theoretical material

but also brief and extended clinical vignettes

demonstrating the interweaving of theory with practice.

I do hope you will join me

ONLINE for my

FREE INTENSIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY TRAINING
