CONTEMPORARY

PSYCHODYNAMIC THEORY

AND CLINICAL PRACTICE

 

Do you wish you had

a better grasp of

psychodynamic concepts

and their application

to clinical situations?

(1) the interpretive perspective

of classical psychoanalytic theory

(2) the corrective-provision perspective

of self psychology and other deficit theories

(3) the intersubjective perspective

of contemporary relational theory

 

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.

 

It 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,

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 how I conceptualize

the "therapeutic action" –

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
