An Introduction to Clinical Practice through the Lens of Relational Psychotherapy and Mind-Body Principles

with Stephen Stein, PhD and Gretchen Fair, MSW

This group met on four consecutive Wednesdays beginning September 16, 2009.

This four-week training opportunity is designed for beginning practitioners and those new to direct clinical practice. The course will introduce an integrative model of treatment focusing on relational psychotherapy, neuroscience, and mind-body work. A didactic and experiential format will be employed. Through the use of readings, discussion of clinical cases and demonstration, we will explore the following areas:

  • Approaching the clinical encounter;
  • Establishing goals of treatment;
  • Viewing the client/therapist interaction through a relational framework;
  • Incorporating mind-body techniques to deepen the therapeutic process; and
  • Exploring the role of social and affective neuroscience in promoting healing and growth in the therapeutic relationship

Stephen Stein, PhD has extensive experience providing psychotherapy, supervision and consultation using an integrative model that incorporates mind-body strategies to promote healing and growth. Gretchen Fair, MSW practices in an agency setting where she uses mind-body work with clients who have experienced complex trauma.

Fee and CE credits:

The group is free for ICP&P members, students, and direct service providers working in agency settings. We will be limited to a maximum of 6 participants. No CE credits will be awarded.
