Friday, March 13, March 27, & April 10, April 24, 2020 | 12:15 pm – 2:15 pm Narrative: Dreams have fallen off our professions map and we no longer turn to them for diagnostic and prognostic information, as healing traditions previously have. Since clinical training programs provide no education on empirical findings or creative dreamwork methods, therapists are left falling back on outdated and unsubstantiated notions such as that dreams are wish- fulfillment or pertain only to the dreamer; or therapists…

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

$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.

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…
