Relational and Integrative Psychotherapy

with Dr. Richard G. Erskine
Sponsored by Alcea Psicologia, Madrid, Spain

A 4-day Workshop : Friday, September 25 to Monday, September 28, 2020
Madrid, Spain

This four-day experiential workshop will focus on the centrality of the therapeutic relationship while emphasizing the in-depth methods of a psychotherapy that integrates the client’s affect, cognition, physiology and behaviour. The themes of this workshop may include life scripts, unconscious pre-reflective patterns, non-verbal communication, introjection and physiological survival reactions. Various methods of working within an involved therapeutic relationship, supportive regression, and/or a caring body therapy will be taught and demonstrated.

This experiential workshop is for mental health professionals who want to apply theory in clinical practice and to enhance their effectiveness through identifying aspects of their own contact interruption, life script, and countertransference. Dr. Erskine will do live therapy with some of the members of the group. He will then discuss the theory and methods used in the live therapy.

Languages are Spanish and English with consecutive interpretation.
