Therapeutic Alliance : A Psychodynamic Approach
23 June, 2013. Milton Keynes.
The workshop aims to introduce delegates to the psychodynamic approach, focusing in particular on the first session, when a counsellor can learn much about the client. Using conscious and unconscious material to formulate an assessment – the “road map” for the work. The workshop will appeal to counsellors of various modalities with a curiosity about psychodynamic thinking. An introduction to concepts such as countertransference, boundaries and object relations will be explained with examples and practical work.
