(Colchester) Film projection and projective identification: trauma, splitting and therapeutic interventions

Description:
The Bernard Zeitlyn Memorial Lecture. Using a particular film, Morvern Caller, (Dir. Lynne Ramsey, 2002) to reflect on the impact of the counter-transference, I suggest that film, with its capacity to communicate intense emotional and pre-verbal states, can make sense of certain key psychoanalytical concepts via a direct emotional experience. The discussion will outline the way a psychological mechanism vital in normal development may then be used when at a later stage someone is confronted with situations of trauma and loss.

(Calgary) Trauma and the Body: The Theory and Practice of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy

Organisation: Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute
First date and time: From Friday, 27 October 2017 @ 09:00 to Friday, 27 October 2017 @ 17:00

Description:
EVENT PRICE: $150 (USD). Does it ever feel like healing from past trauma through traditional therapy is incomplete? Clinicians can learn to tap into the wisdom of the body to help their clients heal from trauma. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is based on current research on neurobiology and trauma and the technique is used to address both traumatic and non-traumatic attachment related issues incorporating the wisdom of the body. During the various stages of the work, through embedded relational mindfulness, we integrate the emotional, cognitive, and bodily processes to achieve adaptive strategies for self-regulation with respect to traumatic experience, and for relationship in daily life. The work seeks to increase the emotional repertoire of the individual for healthier attachment relationships, and more functional daily living. Discover how the body holds past trauma, and how it also provides inroads into what clients need in order to recover and move on, even if the trauma occurred decades ago. Find out what to do and where to start with simple relational mindfulness interventions that will help your clients draw upon the intelligence of their bodies.

(San Diego) SDPA Fall Conference - Innovations in Trauma Treatment

Organisation: Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute
First date and time: From Saturday, 28 October 2017 @ 07:00 to Saturday, 28 October 2017 @ 16:30

Description:
EVENT PRICE: $150 (USD). This keynote address from Dr. Goldstein, a pioneer and experienced trainer in Sensorimotor Therapy, will highlight the importance of working "beneath the words" - exploring body-based, implicit, nonverbal behavior (movements, gestures, posture, etc.). This approach prioritizes understanding the "organization of experience" rather than "talking about" it, when dealing with clients who have been traumatized. Through work with the body and "embodied" therapeutic conversations, clients who have experienced trauma can be encouraged to be curious and report about their experience in the present moment. This is a critical requisite to therapeutic work with trauma. Working with the body is very helpful in enabling a client to identify their experiences, emotions, and sensations more clearly. This collaboration between client and therapist often uncovers information which is useful in further understanding and then, treating their trauma. Basic principles of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy approach will be discussed, with practical illustrations and videotaped examples of how this approach works in practice. Learn about how to apply this elegantly simple and useful approach to monitor client process and engage the somatic realm during trauma treatment!

(Haywards Heath) Introduction to Supervision

Organisation: The Link Centre
First date and time: From Friday, 3 November 2017 @ 09:30 to Friday, 3 November 2017 @ 16:30

Description:
This course is for those thinking about branching out into Supervision. In particular it is concerned with considering what a practitioner may need to think about when making the transition into supervising, looking at how supervision differs from therapy, and looking at a model for understanding the supervision process. Often once practitioners have been working for a few years they look to branch out into supervision. However, being an experienced practitioner does not necessarily mean that someone will make a good supervisor. Whilst there are some similarities between therapy and supervision, they are not the same and supervision requires a slightly different skill set and way of thinking to those needed in therapy. This course will introduce supervision, its purpose and function, as well as the qualities that make for a good supervisor. It will then look at the question of how to develop a supervision relationship and look at a model of supervision to offer a framework for understanding the supervision process. There will be a combination of teaching, discussion, experiential practices and question and answer sessions.

Description:
EVENT PRICE: $800 (AUD). Join Pat Ogden in this 2 day workshop as we explore the body as a target of therapeutic action and provide clients with a vital avenue of self-knowledge and change. The body's intelligence is largely an untapped resource in psychotherapy, yet the story told by the "somatic narrative"- gesture, posture, prosody, facial expressions, eye gaze, and movement -- is arguably more significant than the story told by the words. The language of the body communicates implicit meanings and reveals the legacy of trauma and of early or forgotten dynamics with attachment figures.

(Vermont) Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors: Overcoming Self-Alienation

Organisation: Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute
First date and time: From Thursday, 9 November 2017 @ 08:30 to Thursday, 9 November 2017 @ 16:00

Description:
EVENT PRICE: $285 (USD). Alienation from self in the context of abusive or dysfunctional parenting is a survival strategy that maintains children's attachment to caregivers by disowning themselves as "bad" or "unlovable." This deeply painful failure of self-acceptance results in lifelong shame and self-loathing, difficulty self-soothing, and complications in relationships with others. Without internal compassion and a sense of worth, it is difficult to take in the compassion and acceptance of others. To overcome this alienation from self, therapy must focus on cultivating clients' ability to observe painful emotions as signs of their disowned selves and disowned experience. When clients discover their trauma-related, structurally dissociated younger selves and bring them "home," they spontaneously begin to feel an internal sense of warmth and safety that changes their internal experience. In this workshop, using strategies inspired by Structural Dissociation theory, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Internal Family Systems, we will explore the therapeutic power of fostering internal secure attachment to clients' most deeply disowned selves. This workshop offers a practical "hands on" approach to clients with underlying issues of self-alienation and self-hatred by helping them to recognize how trauma leaves them fragmented and at war within their own minds and bodies. Traumatized individuals must be taught to observe both the parts they have embraced and identified with as 'me' and the trauma-related parts they have disowned and judged harshly. Using interventions drawn from a number of therapeutic approaches (including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, and ego state therapy), the focus is on helping clients observe and accept all aspects of self with mindfulness-based interest and curiosity. As these young parts are identified and understood as 'heros' in the individual's story of survival, clients are able to feel more warmly toward them, often for the first time. Techniques will be demonstrated that increase the capacity to feel for and with each part, that foster the sense of caring for young wounded parts, paving the way for growing "earned secure attachment" or attachment to ourselves. Even when they are unable to tolerate emotion, forgive themselves, or take in someone's caring for them, our clients can learn to feel pain and affection on behalf of their younger selves and even learn to welcome these 'lost souls' with warmth and self-compassion.

Discover how the body holds past trauma, and how it also provides inroads into what clients need in order to recover and move on, even if the trauma occurred decades ago. Find out what to do and where to start with simple relational mindfulness interventions that will help your clients draw upon the intelligence of their bodies.

The body's intelligence is largely an untapped resource in psychotherapy, yet the story told by the "somatic narrative"- gesture, posture, prosody, facial expressions, eye gaze, and movement -- is arguably more significant than the story told by the words. The language of the body communicates implicit meanings and reveals the legacy of trauma and of early or forgotten dynamics with attachment figures.

(Ontario) To Err is Human: Transforming Therapist Errors into Therapeutic Opportunities

Organisation: Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute
First date and time: From Monday, 13 November 2017 @ 09:00 to Monday, 13 November 2017 @ 16:00

Description:
EVENT PRICE: $226 (USD). Like parenting, psychotherapy can be only "good enough." Therapeutic mistakes are inevitable, but they occur in the privacy of an office with no one but the client with whom we could process them fully. We may pause to critique ourselves or try to ignore the shame we feel, but we rarely have the chance to turn them into opportunities. This workshop explores how what drives us to take on the work of psychotherapy can also contribute to "mistakes of the heart." We make mistakes because we care so much, because we want to help--not because we don't. Whether the mistakes we make are clinically misattuned or the result of our own internal conflicts, there is much to learn both about the power of "repair," what happens when therapist and client resolve to recover from the rupture to the relationship caused by empathic failure, small administrative mistakes, or even ethical errors. Early attachment is built upon the cycles of infant distress and parental 'repair.' The emphasis is less on understanding and more on intuiting what the child needs so that feelings of distress are soothed, comforted, or transformed from painful to pleasurable, and tears turn to laughter. In this workshop, we will learn how to use the therapeutic relationship to heal the wounds of childhood by repairing the inevitable 'misses' that accompany our best efforts as therapists.

(Ontario) Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors: Overcoming Self-Alienation

Organisation: Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute
First date and time: From Tuesday, 14 November 2017 @ 09:00 to Tuesday, 14 November 2017 @ 16:00

Description:
EVENT PRICE: $226 (USD). Alienation from self in the context of abusive or dysfunctional parenting is a survival strategy that maintains children's attachment to caregivers by disowning themselves as "bad" or "unlovable." This deeply painful failure of self-acceptance results in lifelong shame and self-loathing, difficulty self-soothing, and complications in relationships with others. Without internal compassion and a sense of worth, it is difficult to take in the compassion and acceptance of others. To overcome this alienation from self, therapy must focus on cultivating clients' ability to observe painful emotions as signs of their disowned selves and disowned experience. When clients discover their trauma-related, structurally dissociated younger selves and bring them "home," they spontaneously begin to feel an internal sense of warmth and safety that changes their internal experience. In this workshop, using strategies inspired by Structural Dissociation theory, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Internal Family Systems, we will explore the therapeutic power of fostering internal secure attachment to clients' most deeply disowned selves. This workshop offers a practical "hands on" approach to clients with underlying issues of self-alienation and self-hatred by helping them to recognize how trauma leaves them fragmented and at war within their own minds and bodies. Traumatized individuals must be taught to observe both the parts they have embraced and identified with as 'me' and the trauma-related parts they have disowned and judged harshly. Using interventions drawn from a number of therapeutic approaches (including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, and ego state therapy), the focus is on helping clients observe and accept all aspects of self with mindfulness-based interest and curiosity. As these young parts are identified and understood as 'heros' in the individual's story of survival, clients are able to feel more warmly toward them, often for the first time. Techniques will be demonstrated that increase the capacity to feel for and with each part, that foster the sense of caring for young wounded parts, paving the way for growing "earned secure attachment" or attachment to ourselves. Even when they are unable to tolerate emotion, forgive themselves, or take in someone's caring for them, our clients can learn to feel pain and affection on behalf of their younger selves and even learn to welcome these 'lost souls' with warmth and self-compassion.

Description:
Facilitator: Tom Warnecke Suitable for: qualified and trainee counsellors and psychotherapists A client arrives with some unusual experiences or reports strange thoughts, curious behaviours or perplexing perceptual changes. These may include sensory or extrasensory experiences or involve religious, spiritual or mystical components. The client may be quite preoccupied with their inner reality but also appear confused or disoriented or perhaps seem anxious or frightened. In this workshop, we will explore altered states of consciousness phenomena. What are our assumptions about their “pathological”, “energies of transformation” or “progressive” nature? Is there a trauma connection? Are there differences between “psychotic episodes” and “spontaneous non-ordinary states of consciousness” and is it possible to distinguish them? And how do we understand concepts such as “spiritual emergence”, “Kundalini awakening” and “spiritual problems or emergencies” in the context of therapy with a soulful perspective

First date and time: From Saturday, 25 November 2017 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 25 November 2017 @ 16:00

Description:
Are you working with clients who are struggling with their sex lives? It may be that they are in a committed, loving relationship, but have no sexual life together. It may be that one partner has a loss of desire? Loss of desire, impairment of arousal and absence of sexual contact are complex and distressing issues that frequently impact on the individual’s sense of self and the couple dynamic. Difficulties with sexual interaction are the most common couple problems presenting at psychosexual therapy clinics but we may also be seeing this with our one to one clients as well. This workshop will outline treatment approaches for sexual arousal and desire problems, which are individually tailored in each case, but share underlying concepts.

(Aarhus) Shame and Self Loathing in the Treatment of Trauma

Organisation: Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute
First date and time: From Monday, 27 November 2017 @ 09:00 to Monday, 27 November 2017 @ 17:30

Description:
EVENT PRICE: 8000kr (DKK) Shame often prevents your traumatized clients' recovery and hampers their ability to find relief and perspective despite effective treatment. Feelings of worthlessness and inadequacy interfere with taking in positive experiences, leaving only hopelessness. Don't miss this rare opportunity to learn effective experiential exercises drawn from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy from internationally renowned trauma expert Janina Fisher, Ph.D. Dr. Fisher will show you how to help clients relate to their symptoms with mindful dual awareness and curiosity rather than automatic acceptance. If you are frustrated with the lack of treatment success in your traumatized clients, this workshop will provide the solutions for long-term healing. Despite your best efforts, unshakeable feelings of shame and self-hatred often undermine treatment: your clients repeatedly take two steps forward, then one step back. In this one of a kind workshop you will understand shame from a neurobiological perspective - as a survival strategy driving somatic responses of automatic obedience and total submission - enforced by the client's punitive introspection. Attend this seminar and learn to integrate traditional psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral techniques with Sensorimotor interventions that emphasize posture, movement and gesture. With these new techniques, issues of shame can become an avenue to transformation rather than a source of stuckness.

First date and time: From Thursday, 7 December 2017 @ 08:00 to Thursday, 7 December 2017 @ 16:00

Description:
EVENT PRICE: $220 (USD). The language of the body and how it communicates is at the core of effectively treating trauma and relationship difficulties and attachment failure. Pat Ogden, PhD, an originator in the field of somatic therapies, is world-renowned for developing Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP). SP is a cutting-edge, bottom-up, body oriented talk therapy, relational mindfulness-based approach to treat emotional and cognitive experiences. According to Dr. Ogden, as a therapist you are likely to miss out on a wealth of valuable diagnostic and treatment information because you are likely missing what's in front of you in the therapy session. Citing research, literature, neurobiology, developmental psychology, trauma, and psychodynamic therapy, she will demonstrate that the body has largely been left out of the "talking cure", and demonstrate that integrating body-focused interventions into our work can provide a more holistic - and effective - approach to the treatment of trauma, attachment, and relational issues - with adults, couples, children, adolescents and groups. Do not miss this opportunity to spend the day with Dr. Pat Ogden and learn techniques to integrate into your treatment skillset for the treatment of trauma, attachment disturbances, memory and dysregulated arousal.

First date and time: From Saturday, 9 December 2017 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 9 December 2017 @ 16:00

Description:
Are your clients using dates sites and social media to make relationships? Do your clients struggle with making these relationships work? This workshop will explore the many different facets of love as Fromm (1957) explored in The Art of Loving plus look at modern myths. These can be found in ideas such as chemical imbalance, the mix up around lust and love, the nature of same sex/hetero love, love and reproduction plus the idealised version of love, women being saved and men doing the rescuing plus sex as relationship glue. Participants will gain an individual understanding, by then reflecting on their self-concepts in relation to the work they undertake with clients. Attending this workshop will help participants differentiate between the different forms of love: self love, love for partner, mother/father love, other relationships and how this connects to loneliness, isolation and human connection. Are clients coming to you because of a loss of meaning in their life or lack of confidence?

First date and time: From Saturday, 9 December 2017 @ 10:30 to Saturday, 9 December 2017 @ 15:00

Description:
John Bowlby told me in supervision that his psychoanalytic and psychiatric trainings had not equipped him with enough expertise on child sexual abuse. But he joined the voices that denounced the high incidence of incest and its damaging effects on children – and he unequivocally referred to this as sexual exploitation of the children (Bowlby, 1979). He subsequently became conversant with the literature on the subject and challenged colleagues who denied that the abuse had taken place. There is a parallel between child sexual abuse and professional sexual abuse. Bowlby was very concerned about the unethical behaviour of some of his colleagues and described this as a “hot potato” (quoted in Hunter, 2015). He was not totally against physical touch in psychotherapy as a gesture of support, because in certain circumstances it can have therapeutic value. However, he was mindful that touch has to be used with much care and discretion, as there is a risk that it can be taken as sexual. And he emphasised that therapists have a special duty to protect vulnerable patients, for which it is crucial to understand the strength of unmet attachment needs that these patients often bring to therapy. Bowlby (1988) regretted that Freud replaced his seduction theory with a theory of infantile sexuality based on the myth of Oedipus Rex. Bowlby stated that Freud seemed to have been unable to grasp the centrality of attachment, in childhood and in the therapeutic situation. Not grasping properly the nature of the unmet attachment needs that patients bring to the consulting room may increase the risk of sexual boundary violations (Ezquerro, 2017). That is sexual exploitation of a vulnerable person by someone who is in a position of power. This presentation will aim to increase awareness of the problem and to explore the value of attachment-based interventions. The large group shall provide wider opportunities for reflection.

(Stroud) Oedipus is Alive and Well and Living in Gloucestershire presented by Michael Jacobs

Organisation: Gloucestershire Counselling Service
First date and time: From Wednesday, 28 February 2018 @ 10:00 to Wednesday, 28 February 2018 @ 16:30

Description:
Freud's Oedipus Complex is one of four cornerstones of psychoanalytic theory. But is Freud's interpretation of the original Sophocles play the only one? Is the complex really a universal phenomenon or was it his own problem? The day, based on Michael's book Illusion (2000) starts with the background to the play itself that includes a film-viewing, followed by a discussion drawing out different possibilities exploring how Freud's initial theory has changed over the years. In asking whether the complex has not outlived its usefulness, Michael examines the continuing relevance of the oedipal triangle in our work, inviting participants to see how important the symbol of the triangle is for their understanding of personal and couple dynamics. Michael Jacobs is a psychodynamic and integrative psychotherapist and visiting Professor at Bournemouth University and the University of Leeds. His seminal books are key texts on many training programmes and include; The Presenting Past (2012, 4th edition, Open University Press) and Psychodynamic Counselling In Action (2017, 5th edition Sage). January 2018 sees the launch of his professional autobiography, Fifty Years of Counselling: My Presenting Past (Open University Press).

Organisation: Tavistock Relationships
First date and time: From Saturday, 10 March 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 10 March 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
Envy can be difficult to work with and, perhaps because of this, it can be easy to overlook in the consulting room. This study day will explore envy as an intrinsic component of intimate relationships - including the therapeutic one. It has been 60 years since Melanie Klein’s Envy and Gratitude was published. Her concept of primary envy saw the roots of envy lying in the inevitably unequal relationship between mother and infant. Envy, with its links with the projective system, repetition, destructiveness and potential reparation, still remains at the heart of psychoanalytically- oriented work with couples and individuals.

(London) Sophia Prevezanou: 'Working with Transference in the Supervisory Relationship'

Organisation: The Minster Centre
First date and time: From Saturday, 10 March 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 10 March 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
One of the aims of integrative supervision is the exploration and making sense of the client's transference and the therapist's countertransference. Supervision training teaches us that supervision is not therapy. Supervisors are warned about the pitfalls of turning the supervisory relationship into a therapeutic one. It is a reality, however, that transferential dynamics do arise within the supervisory relationship itself. Such dynamics are often hard to identify and stay hidden within the unconscious dynamics between therapist and client. If not addressed, transference can undermine the supervisory relationship and may have a knock on effect on therapists’ work with their clients. This workshop will be primarily experiential and will be examining how we can navigate this fine line between therapy and supervision without ignoring the transference and without engaging in working with it therapeutically. This workshop is for qualified practitioners only.

(London) Swimming in murky waters - A practical guide to working with countertransference

Organisation: WPF Therapy
First date and time: From Saturday, 17 March 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 17 March 2018 @ 16:00

Description:
This workshop will help guide participants through the difficult area of countertransference and provide an opportunity to link a deeper understanding to everyday clinical practice. Although originally seen as an unhelpful manifestation of the therapist’s own feelings, Paula Heimann’s (1950) ground-breaking paper ‘On Countertransference’ was the beginning of this concept becoming a vital instrument in contemporary analytic and psychodynamic clinical work. Early moments of trauma are encoded as body memories rather than words and the therapist’s countertransference is essential for conceptualizing pre-verbal sensory communication from patients or clients. It needs however to be handled with care. This requires the clinician to use their embodied, subjective knowledge empathically and appropriately in order to help the patient or client to start to feel safer with unmentalised primary experiences.

(London) Margaret Landale 'Trauma and the Therapeutic Relationship: Exploring the subtle processes of embodied attunement, empathy and integration.'

Organisation: The Minster Centre
First date and time: From Saturday, 24 March 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 24 March 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
There have been significant advances in the understanding and treatment of trauma in recent years, which has led to the development of a range of effective trauma processing models. However, these models have their limitations when we are faced with complex trauma issues, which may have their roots in early childhood and represent unstable, neglectful or abusive attachment scenarios. This workshop will offer an opportunity for participants to reflect deeply on the complex dynamics and processes we encounter when working with early trauma issues. We will draw on relevant clinical material and vignettes to illustrate processes of enquiry into complex trauma identity. We will consider issues of building trust, developing embodied empathic attunement, reading the ‘body’s language’ of trauma, engaging with dissociative processes and helping our client develop their capacity for embodied awareness, self-reflection and stabilisation. The day will have a practical clinical focus throughout, and there will also be opportunities for participants to bring their own clinical material and reflect on specific clinical dilemmas they might be facing.

(London) Sasha Bates: 'Therapists and Self Care'

Organisation: The Minster Centre
First date and time: From Saturday, 7 April 2018 @ 10:00 to Saturday, 7 April 2018 @ 17:00

Description:
Recent research suggests that caring for others can impact on health - your own and that of your clients. This workshop will explore the science behind this claim, whilst also offering opportunities to experience the counterbalancing effects of self-care. Self-care can be an alien concept to those whose empathic temperaments have led them to a career in which they prioritise others at the expense of themselves. Compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, emotional contagion or burnout can result and lead to depression, anxiety, addiction and physical illness. As a therapist, it can feel shameful and might even suggest that we can no longer do our jobs. We often ignore our own needs and feel guilty at saying no to others and yes to ourselves. Neuroscience, polyvagal theory, right brain to right brain communication and much of the current research is showing that our bodyminds and nervous systems non-verbally communicate our lack of self-care to our clients, affecting their ability to experience us as a safe, holding, regulated presence. This workshop will enable you to: • Discuss the somatic consequences of your self- care choices on you and your clients; • Explore the impact on your health, happiness and career longevity; • Engage in experiential exercises - how effective is your current self-care; • Influence your nervous system, improve polyvagal tone, and learn to ground with yoga, breathing and meditation practices - all proven methods of self-regulation. Please bring a yoga mat and, if possible, a blanket and wear loose clothing. Most injuries and ailments can be adapted for, just let us know in advance.
