An Introduction to Clinical Practice through the Lens of Relational Psychotherapy and Mind-Body Principles

This four-week training opportunity is designed for students, beginning practitioners and those new to direct clinical practice.  The course will introduce an integrative model of treatment focusing on relational psychotherapy, neuroscience, and mind-body work.  A didactic and experiential format will be employed.  Through the use of readings, discussion of clinical cases and demonstration, we will explore the following areas: 

  • Approaching the clinical encounters;
  • Establishing goals of treatment;
  • Viewing the client/therapist interaction through the centrality of attachment and therapeutic relationship;
  • Discussing some of the central concepts that are related to positive outcome in treatment, such as empathic attunement, limbic resonance and revision, neural integration, and neural plasticity;
  • Incorporating mind-body techniques to deepen the therapeutic process; and
  • Exploring the role of social and affective neuroscience in promoting healing and growth in the therapeutic relationship.

This workshop will begin on Thursday, October 25, 2012 through Thursday, November 15, 2012 meeting at 7:00 PM.  The facilitators will be Dr. Maria Threstrup and Dr. Stephen Stein.  This group will be limited to eight participants.

Interested individuals should contact Dr. Stein at 202-745-2556 or Dr. Thestrup at 703-798-2838. 

This group will be free of charge and open to any interested participants. 

This training experience is offered as a service of DCPA to facilitate the professional development of the mental health community.
