Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy is known for its visually stunning unlockings and rapid transformations. But these breakthrough sessions are built upon a series of smaller, yet critical turning points between therapist and patient. This seminar will use lecture and videotaped clinical material to illustrate the key moments that fuel a strong working alliance and set the stage for a major unlocking of the unconscious. Special attention will be given to:
  • Cultivating positive feelings in the therapeutic relationship
  • Staying out of the parent’s shoes
  • Speaking directly to the unconscious
  • Sparking curiosity and hopefulness
  • Prioritizing process over outcome
  • Celebrating your own therapeutic style
