Skills and experience, research and theory—each plays a critical role in the development of effective therapy practice. And then there is something else. When we recall the work of such figures as Milton Erickson, Virginia Satir, Carl Rogers and Carl Whitaker, we detect another layer: artistry. Surprisingly, artistry is something that can be taught, or more accurately, expanded or enhanced. Everyone has the capacity.

Compare and contrast clinical and philosophical perspective of experts.
Together, we will explore the implications of Body-oriented psychotherapy and recent findings in the neurosciences, on how the brain and body deals with emotional information, while also providing an understanding of effective therapeutic action. This training is geared for psychotherapists of all types, as well as for physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, bodyworkers, and educators.
There seems to be something wrong with our clinical training approach. One of the most replicated findings in psychotherapy research is that therapists, unlike surgeons, usually don’t improve with practice: their treatment outcomes after 30 years are about the same on average as when they started. This Great Conversation will focus on how we might use a science-based approach to train the next generation of psychotherapists so that they do get better with practice.
