Description

Description:

Through the special focus which therapy technique induces, therapists often lose touch with the power of such ordinary experiences as humor, friendliness, self-disclosure, approval/disapproval, banter, etc. via a live therapy session, Polster will show how these exchanges may join technique to tighten up the therapy experience and speed up the process.

 

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe how therapists can respect their idiomatic personhood, consistent with good technique.
  2. To describe the difference between self-indulgence and interpersonal resonance.
