ttt When: Friday, Friday, April 13, 2018 from 12:30 – 3:45 pm (3 CEs) Where: ICP+P Office, 4601 Connecticut Ave., NW, Suite 8, Washington, DC 20008
Given the increasing attention to the role of the body in treating trauma, dissociative disorders and other clinical conditions, many traditionally trained psychodynamic psychotherapists are exploring somatic interventions. Following ICP+P’s Institute on Embodying the Unspoken Self last year, this short course explores how to incorporate somatic interventions into psychodynamic psychotherapy.
When might somatic interventions be clinically indicated?
How do the foundations of a self psychological, relational psychotherapy enhance (and perhaps prove essential to) somatic work?
How does the role of the therapist change when incorporating somatic techniques?
Alexandra Kaghan will present the case of a ten year psychotherapy which began as a traditional, self psychology/relational therapy and expanded to incorporate somatic techniques. Judy Marx will discuss how the therapy and the therapeutic relationship shift when somatic interventions are included, as well as how they remain constant.
Participants in this short course will be able to:
Identify at least three clinical situations for which somatic interventions are particularly useful.
Provide examples of at least three types of somatic interventions that could be incorporated in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Describe how a self-psychological, relationally-informed psychotherapy enhances somatic psychotherapy.
Describe how the therapist’s role vis-à-vis directiveness and psychoeducation differs from the traditional psychodynamic psychotherapist’s role.
This program is appropriate for clinicians at all levels of experience and offers 3 CEs.
