Participants will learn to understand the adaptive functions of eating and body image problems, such as affect regulation, as they developed from intra-psychic and interpersonal experiences mixed with unconscious internalized cultural influences. Participants will also learn how to use the transference and countertransference to deepen and further the work.

This workshop will provide therapists with the fundamental concepts of Psychodynamic, Family Systems and Attachment Theories enabling them to facilitate their couples’ ability to process their individual and couple experiences to-wards progressive communicating and relating.

Managing Affairs: Harnessing the Power of Infidelity

ID: 5291

The aftermath of affairs is a frequent presenting problem of couples entering conjoint therapy. The wounded partner often experiences the discovery of a betrayal as trauma. The participating partner often careens between guilt, shame, and a renewed sense of aliveness and re-discovery of self. A couple’s therapist needs to manage the storm, both in the treatment setting, as well as trying to help the couple contain severe conflicts at home. The purpose of this workshop is to provide the participant with an overview of issues relating to affairs and the treatment of affairs in the couple relationship. We will explore various theoretical models and approaches to understanding the intra- and interpersonal patterns leading up to such breaches and explore how to help couples find the shifts needed to repair them.

Staying Safe While Thinking Dangerously: Attachment, Intersubjectivity and the Deepening of Clinical Practice

ID: 5290

Attachment goes to the heart of human existence, and our attachment histories have everything to do with our ability to stay safe while thinking dangerously. Many of the difficulties that patients present to therapy could be summed up as existential struggles with accessing their full range of experience while staying regulated enough to maintain connection and reflectivity. As therapists, we struggle with the same thing in the moment-to-moment clinical exchange. Our ability to understand these processes in ourselves gives us access to the core struggles of the patient. In this workshop, we will integrate concepts from attachment theory, intersubjective theory, parent-infant interaction research, neurobiology and Mindfulness/Buddhist psychology. Clinical examples from adult and child psychotherapy, video/slide presentation, role playing, discussion and brief guided meditation will be used to illustrate this deepening perspective.
