CONTEMPORARY APPROACHES TO PSYCHODYNAMIC PSYCHOTHERAPY (CAPP) TRAINING PROGRAM
ICP+P’s CAPP Program is pleased to announce two Open Houses, offered free of charge, as an introduction to topics and clinical applications included in the training experience. Join us to explore how you can deepen your practice, expand your theoretical understanding, and learn more about the only psychotherapy program in the DC area that is dedicated to Self and Relational perspectives.
Sunday, March 15th from 3:00 – 4:30 pm
Raquel Willerman, LCSW, CAPP graduate, will present her graduation paper entitled “The Beautiful Porch.” In this paper, Willerman discusses an impasse with a patient in which the working through required her to own a part of herself that she had not acknowledged was in the room. We will discuss Bromberg’s notion that successful therapy is wrought from a dialectic between the patient’s being seen (by the therapist) and seeing (the therapist), particularly and poignantly when the patient sees something in the therapist that the therapist disavows.
Saturday, April 18th from 10:00 – 11:30 am
Janna Sandmeyer, Ph.D., Chair of the CAPP program, will present “A Case Illustration of Core Concepts in Self Psychology.” Using this detailed case example, Sandmeyer will explore Kohut’s seminal contributions in empathy, selfobject transferences, and disruption and repair as they manifest in the therapeutic relationship. We will consider how Self and Relational theories work together to inform a meaningful therapeutic experience for patient and therapist.
Both programs will be held at the ICP+P office at 4601 Connecticut Ave., NW, Suite 8, Washington, DC 20008.
