Becoming The Real Therapist

3/13/2015 - 9:00am to 4:00pm CDT

This day-long workshop will challenge the current model and process of therapy. We will explore:

Adlerian psychology’s incongruity with the current medical model and its emphasis on pathology
The switch in the therapist role based on the current science of chaos
The personal and professional shift from a "psychology of objectivity, neutrality and non-engagement" to a "psychology of subjectivity, increased alignment, and shared process"
How we can adopt underused and wasted subjectivity to increase movement in therapy
