In this time of focus on Evidence Based Practice methods in psychotherapy, research continues to highlight the therapeutic relationship as the primary curative factor for positive therapeutic outcomes.   This curative relationship is a complex connection involving specific skills that allow clients to feel safe, seen, and accepted.  This workshop will help clinicians identify and enhance these skills in the therapeutic setting.

This clinical series is designed to deepen participants’ insight into segments of the clinical process that will open attendees to varied interventional and relational possibilities with their clients. Each workshop will focus on a different clinical topic and present a paradigm for conceptualization, intervention, and evaluation of efficacy. Each workshop will encourage the utilization of real client examples from the participants.  Participants will learn research based knowledge about specific clinical topics to raise awareness and deepen clinical insight, specific intervention strategies for each clinical topic, based on increased knowledge and awareness, and evaluation skills for client growth and progression in therapy.  Revisioning Trauma: Friday, June 2, 2017; The Family Car: Friday, July 14, 2017; The Brain and Body in IP: Friday, August 25, 2017; The Real Relationship: Sunday, September 10, 2017; Shame and the Core Hurts: Sunday, October 15, 2017; PTSD and Relationships: Sunday, November 12, 2017; Fear and the Human Process: Sunday, December 17, 2017
