Developmentally-based, Relationally-focused Integrative Psychotherapy

Dr. Richard Erskine
Sponsored by Angelika Glöckner

3-day Experiential Workshop: Monday, June 5 through Wednesday, June 7, 2023
Bammental (Nähe Heidelberg), Germany

This 3-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 behavior. The themes of this residential workshop may include life scripts, unconscious pre-reflective patterns, non-verbal communication, introjection, and physiological survival reactions.

Various methods may be taught and demonstrated:
• therapy from a child development perspective;
• establishing an involved therapeutic relationship;
• facilitating a safe, supportive regression; and/or
• providing body-centred psychotherapy.

This experiential workshop is mainly 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.

Participants are requested to read Relational Patterns, Therapeutic Presence (Karnac Books, 2015) or Beyond Empathy: A Therapy of Contact-in-Relationships (Bruner/Mazel:Taylor & Francis, 1999). An alternative book in the German language is Kontakt, Ich-Zustande, und Lebensplan: Integrative Psychotherapy in Action by Erskine & Moursund (1991) Paderborn: Junfermann Verlag.

Please 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.
