About the event
Pre-Core Training is intended to introduce and immerse trainees in the fundamental principles of ISTDP metapsychology. My pre-core trainings are held with a space of total non judement/acceptance that learning and integrating new knowledge evokes anxiety! We will support one another through experiential skill building exercises that are designed to synthesize the concepts learned during the lecture components of the training. Some of the main concepts you will learn include :
- The Triangle of Conflict: Feelings, Anxiety, Defenses
- The Triangle of Persons: Past attachment Figures, Current Attachment Figures, the Therapy attachment relationship
- Developing an Effective Therapeutic Focus during Inquiry of a new treatment
- Identifying and working with anxiety and defeneses in the face of efforts to establish a working therapeutic alliance
- Assessing and Regulating Anxiety of Patients: the biophysiology of Anxiety
- Moment-to-moment assessment and intervention of Defense: how to identify and address defenses
Hopefully this training will help raise your own affect tolerance, promote positive anxiety regulation, and compassion/patience for ourselves as we learn and grow as therapists. An emphasis is placed on learning to think clinically vs. ritualistically or reflexively.
Friday January 19th Sunday January 21st.
