principles and practice of Time-Limited Dynamic
Psychotherapy (TLDP) and Dr. Jinich Emotionally
Focused Couples Therapy (EFT). This introductory
/ intermediate workshop will give practical information
to therapists who wish to make every session
count with their clients. These approaches
privilege accessing deep emotion and experiential
learning as well as new reflective, narrative
learning. Video segments of actual therapy sessions
with real clients will be shown. The emphasis
in the presentations will be on a pragmatic how
to do it focus, creating a bridge from the
specifics of theory to the reality of practice.
Ongoing interaction with workshop participants
will keep the learning experience active and relevant.
