Personal identity is a crucial guide to the way people live their lives. Dr. Polster will examine how therapy may accentuate and empower familiar identities and how to resuscitate those which are dimmed. Conceptual elaboration will be joined with live therapy sessions, showing how concepts connect with therapeutic work.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe how to recognize the diversity within one's self which people must integrate.
  2. To describe how to help people to identify with dimmed parts of the self.
