A seminar exploring the concept of emotional processing and techniques for deepening emotional experiencing in psychotherapy
Difficulties in emotional processing and emotional regulation are now understood to be a component of many psychological difficulties and disorders, including anxiety and depression.
This seminar will draw on current research as well as theory and technique from Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) to discuss:
– The links between attachment trauma and difficulties in emotional regulation
– the interplay between emotional processing problems and anxiety
– techniques for emotional regulation
– defences which block emotional experiencing
– techniques for deepening emotional experiencing in psychotherapy
Clinical case examples will be used to illustrate lecture material.
This seminar is suitable for registered clinicians working in mental health or allied fields. No previous training in ISTDP is required.
There will be opportunity for questions and discussion. I will also be available to discuss any questions about training further in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy.
