How adolescent and family psychotherapy can inform your work with adults
An Affect Phobia Therapy workshop with Kristin A.R. Osborn, Boston, USA April 9, 2016
You may be familiar with the sensation of sitting across from an adult client but feeling like you’re working with someone a lot younger. Knowing how to work with that younger person can be helpful in your practice. In this workshop, you’ll observe adolescent psychotherapy where treatment is applied closer to the origin of the trauma and the development of the self. This will help you gain a deeper understanding of this process and acquire techniques that are effective with both adolescents and adults. It will enable you to reach out and connect with clients who are stuck in the past.
Overall Learning Objectives:
In this workshop, we’ll explore how to respond therapeutically when working with a client who is struggling with symptoms related to childhood trauma, developing a strong sense of self and relationships. You’ll learn how to assess your client’s presenting psychological complaints in a way that helps you comprehend the origin of their problem and create a hypothesis for treatment. You’ll develop a deeper understanding of family dynamics and peer relationships and their impact on the development of the self. You’ll be taught how to resolve blocks that prevent a healthy sense of self, the capacity to be in relationships with others, and the ability to experience and express a wide range of emotions. You’ll learn how to apply therapeutic interventions and identify when specific treatment goals have been reached.
