Dr. McWilliams will review ten different psychological lenses through which individual differences have been viewed (temperament, attachment style, observed clinical pattern, defensive structure, affective organization, implicit cognition, motivational tendencies, individual and cultural location on the self-definition versus self-in-relation polarity, central relational theme, level of severity of problem), emphasizing with clinical vignettes the practical value of appreciating each perspective. Intended to be directly relevant to participants' clinical work irrespective of their theoretical orientation or level of experience, this workshop welcomes case material and collaborative problem-solving.
