Boundary crossings can be extremely helpful, whereas boundary violations are usually harmful. Therapy is often shortchanged by the tendency to practice defensively. It is imperative not to exploit, disparage, abuse or harass a client. We also must appreciate the significance of confidentiality, integrity, respect and informed consent. All the rest of the ethical rules, codes and regulations are negotiable. Thus, non-sexual dual relationships often can enhance the process and outcome of psychotherapy.

The therapeutic alliance is described along with transference and transference acting-out. The therapeutic task is defined - i.e., to help the patient convert transference acting-out to therapeutic alliance and transference through appropriate interventions. The psychotherapy of each of the disorders (Borderline, Narcissistic and Schizoid) is described in terms of indications, therapeutic technique and goals. Clinical examples will be given. Two videotapes of psychotherapy will be presented- one with a Borderline patient and the other with a Narcissistic disorder. Countertransference problems are described.
To describe how “immediate nextness”, followed continuingly, will lead to the achievement of therapeutic goals.
To describe how absorbed relationship is a leavening process for the increased motivation of clients.
Attunement can be considered the deepest level of rapport, a foundation of empathy. We will learn how to attune to affect,behavior, cognition, attitude, perception, and relationship patterns – even how to attune to the preconscious associations that drive behavior. A precursor to every intervention, attunement will be described from the perspective of hypnosis, psychotherapy, and social psychology. Clinical applications will be demonstrated and discussed. Includes small-group practice exercises.
Feedback-Informed Treatment (FIT) dramatically improves both retention and outcome of behavioral health services. FIT involves routinely and formally soliciting feedback from clients regarding the therapeutic alliance and outcome of care and using the resulting information to inform and tailor service delivery. Dr. Miller will demonstrate how clinicians can integrate FIT into their work regardless of theoretical orientation or professional discipline.
