“In my early professional years I was asking the question: How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?” –Carl Rogers
Most psychotherapists agree that a good therapeutic relationship is foundational to working effectively with our clients. Yet despite this consensus, our field provides few opportunities for learning and practicing the elements of healing relationships. Findings from contemporary neuroscience increasingly emphasize the importance of personal relationships in influencing the development of the brain and nervous system. This seminar integrates these findings along with wisdom from multiple healing traditions to teach a clinical attitude and approach that create the optimal conditions for psychological healing to occur. Each module of the seminar focuses on a principle of psychotherapy practice that enhances therapeutic alliance, emotional resonance, and related interventions. The course also offers frameworks for understanding complicated clinical presentations that may challenge clinicians’ ability to maintain these optimal healing conditions.
The seminar offers both didactic and experiential learning through lectures, discussions, readings, demonstrations, exercises, and case consultation.
