The presence of the therapist, and how the therapist truly forges a connection with the client in therapy, can be a crucial factor affecting the client’s healing process. An engaged, committed, caring therapist who is mindful of his or her own self ― and how that self relates to the client ― is a key determinant of how well that client will respond to therapy.
The Emotional Therapist is a deep exploration of what it means to be emotional and how to cultivate emotion in the therapeutic relationship. Building on modern systemic family therapy, Dr Paolo Bertrando introduces participants to working with emotions in therapy using a relationally-focused lens.
The integration of a systemic-relational methodology with a knowledge and appreciation of the different emotions involved in people’s lives is useful for practitioners working in any kind of situation, especially – but not exclusively – when couples, families, or children are involved. The relational focus on emotions helps the practitioner to focus on the clients’ own needs and experiences. The workshop will be interactive and experiential, as the presenter helps participants to develop skills in working with emotions by the use of a practice-centred teaching method, making the concepts easy to grasp and to put to immediate application.
