Dr. Polster will feature concentration, curiosity, fascination and simplicity of observation as agents of personhood. He will also offer four cornerstones of methodology. These are: the tightening of therapeutic sequences, establishing good quality contact, eliciting relevant stories, and identifying parts of the self. Live therapeutic sessions will illustrate the principles.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the importance and attractiveness of small steps in therapy.
  2. Describe the importance to aspects of self previously negated.
  3. Elicit key stories and to highlight the accompanying feelings and insights.
