Developmentally Based, Relationally Focused Integrative Psychotherapy

Richard G. Erskine, PhD.

A Five-day Residential Workshop : May 28 to June 1, 2021
Domaine Les Fougeres, Mirmande, France (near Montelimar)

This five day workshop will include a mixture of Integrative Psychotherapy theory, a discus-sion of developmentally based and relationally focused methods, and live therapy with some participants. The focus of the teaching, discussions, and demonstrations will be 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 behavior.

The themes of this residential workshop may include Life Scripts, unconscious pre-reflective patterns, non-verbal communication, introjection, and physiological survival reactions. Vari-ous methods may be taught and demonstrated may include:
• therapy from a child development perspective;
• establishing an involved therapeutic relationship;
• facilitating a safe, supportive regression; and/or
• providing body-centred psychotherapy.

This workshop is for mental health professionals who want to apply theory in clinical prac-tice and to enhance their effectiveness through identifying aspects of their own contact in-terruption, life script, and countertransference.

Dr. Erskine will do live therapy with some of the members of the group. He will then dis-cuss the theory and methods used in the live therapy. Participants are requested to read both Beyond Empathy and the articles on the website: Pease come to the workshop prepared to ask questions and engage in a lively discussion about the theory and methods of a developmentally based, relationally focused Integrative Psychotherapy.
