How to work when therapy isn’t working
Portslade (Brighton and Hove)
How to work when therapy isn’t working: perceiving and understanding enactments in the therapeutic relationship.
This CPD workshop is dedicated to deepening our engagement with difficult dynamics in the therapeutic relationship, and to finding ways of accessing the therapeutic potential locked within them. It is open to all practising therapists, and suitable for practitioners from all modalities.
We will go beyond the principle of recognising enactments as a significant feature of the therapeutic relationship, and attend to its phenomenological detail:
- How can we notice and ‘catch’ significant moments of enactments?
- How can we access and make use of the multitude of perceptions, feelings and thoughts which occur in the therapist’s stream of consciousness?
- How, specifically, can we use our own bodymind experience and our conflicts, discomfort and uncertainties (i.e. what psychoanalysts cll the countertransference) to shed light on the client’s inner world?
- What fantasies and hypotheses can we articulate which give us information about the inherent dynamic of the enactment?
