Narrative: The time around the decision to separate/divorce is one of intense distress and provides a common reason for people to consult a mental health professional.  Adults and children are often flooded with anger, fear and guilt, and it is very common for the confusion parents experience to lead to actions that harm themselves and their children.

Lust, Rage, Chaos and Love: Erotic Transference in Psychotherapy
– Felicia Matto-Shepard, LMFT

Sat March 14, 2020 | 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Embassy Suites, 101 McInnis Parkway
San Rafael, CA 94903 United States
+ Google Map
$100.00 – $110.00

Narrative: While all psychotherapists are trained to understand that “therapy never includes sex,” few feel adequately train in how to navigate sexual content that might emerge in the course of treatment.  And when the sexual content is directed toward the therapist, many feel unprepared to respond. Merely setting boundaries with the patient without exploring the meaning of the erotic transference risks the loss of a vital archetypal energy that could be critical to the patient’s development.  At the same time,…

As therapists, we need to hold in tension…

San Rafael, CA 94903 United States

lisa bograd headshot

Narrative: Eating disorders are very complex disorders that can be very difficult for clinicians to treat both because of the life threatening nature of these disorders as well as the tendency of those afflicted with them to cling desperately to them despite the grave risk they pose to their physical health and emotional wellbeing. But if we really understand what is at stake for these patients in giving up their disorder, if we can appreciate the profound way in which…
