Presenter: Robert Taibbi (VA), LCSW

CEUs: Category 1 | 2.0 

In this 2-hour workshop we will look at clinical process from 3 interlocking perspectives: Common problems arising from faulty process – what can’t the client do, their stuckpoints; the goal of therapy and sessions on helping clients correct their faulty process; ways to maximizing the effectiveness of session by avoiding replicating faulty process and problems within the session, and intentional creating corrective emotional experiences so that clients leave feeling differently than when they came in. To do this we’ll look at the 4 common stuckpoints for individuals and the 3 common stuckpoints for couples and families. We’ll then discuss treatment maps for each of these problems so that you can hit the ground running, as well as identify what you want to do and not do in the session process to avoid problem-replication and create positive experiences. Finally, we’ll look at Therapy as Performance, the tools and tips for maximizing the session process. If you are relatively new to therapy or a seasoned clinician who wants to look at process in a new way, this workshop will help you be more intentional and creative.

Workshop Objectives:

  1. Identify the 4 most common stuckpoints for individuals
  2. Describe the concept of emotional wounds
  3. Discuss how to use voice and gestures with the session process
