How to work compassionately with emotions
We have an exciting upcoming workshop on how to work compassionately with emotions, which will take place at Token House Business Centre on 1st June.
If you are looking for an integrative approach to therapy then this will be of benefit to your clients who struggle with emotional difficulties. The workshop will be delivered by the wonderful Kristin Osborn who will be flying in from the States. Works well with CBT and Compassion-Focused Therapy.
Affect Phobia Therapy (APT) is based on the premise that internal conflicts about feelings underlie most psychologically-based disorders. APT is an integrative model of short term dynamic psychotherapy that was developed by Harvard Medical School psychologist and researcher, Leigh McCullough.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to conceptualise an emotional conflict and how to use experiential, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic techniques to treat them. They will also deepen their understanding of how a phobic response to an emotion is developed and maintained, like when people are unable to feel angry and assert themselves. Emphasis will be placed on the assessment and treatment of current problems that originate from the past.
This interactive workshop will include video segments from psychotherapy sessions to demonstrate techniques and interventions, a therapy demonstration and the opportunity to discuss cases.
