Although the topics of the three presentations are unrelated, at the same time each presenter will help us think about how we decide what we do as therapists, and what we choose to bring into the therapy room when we are with our patients. We will think about relational intimacy, and how knowing and being known sometimes takes more than just words. We will think about empathy, and when a self psychological approach might or might not be useful for a patient with performance anxiety. And we will think about working with trauma victims, and the idea that including the moral dimension could provide a more hopeful outcome.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe how music can be used to share a patient’s inner world, foster mutual recognition and help the clinical pair recover from interpersonal conflicts and disruptions.
  2. Discuss the multi-determined genesis of Performance Anxiety and why psychodynamic therapy, including treatment using a self-psychology perspective, may be indicated.
  3. Describe how moral dimensions of trauma, including a sense of moral responsibility, may contribute to PTSD and may change the patient’s response to trauma.

This conference is appropriate for clinicians at all levels of experience and
offers 3 CE credits.

Developmental Psychotherapy Across the Lifespan: Integrating Child-Centered Therapy Principles to Treating Adults with Dysregulation

Featuring Georgia DeGangi, PhD and Marc Nemiroff, PhD

 

Saturday, November 5, 2016           Silver Spring Civic Building at Veterans Plaza
Registration: 8:30-9am                      One Veterans Place
Program: 9:00am-12:30pm               Silver Spring, MD 20910

This half-day workshop is designed for clinicians interested in applying developmental psychotherapy to the treatment of adults with disorders of self-regulation and/or experiences of trauma. These individuals are highly sensitive to stimulation from the environment, emotionally reactive, and have difficulty maintaining relationships and an organized, regulated lifestyle. Drs. DeGangi and Nemiroff will present child-centered therapy, a technique that focuses on the process of self-regulation, affect attunement, emotional communication, attachment, and relational knowing. They will give an example of child-centered therapy as applied to a disengaged mother-infant dyad with a highly irritable infant. Dr. DeGangi and Dr. Nemiroff will each present an in-depth case of adults with severe dysregulation and psychically active childhood trauma. The treatment in both cases exemplifies the application of developmental psychotherapy to the adult population.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the application of child-centered therapy in addressing the constitutional and emotional needs of adults with high irritability and mood dysregulation and the experience of trauma.
  2. Discuss how developmental psychotherapy facilitates self-regulation, affect attunement, emotional communication, and attachment.
  3. Discuss modifications in treatment between children and adults using principles of developmental psychotherapy.

This conference is appropriate for clinicians at all levels of experience and
offers 3 CE credits.
