Description

 

Finding Your Therapeutic "Sweet Spot" – A Meta-Model for All Therapists

There are three dimensions of the relational world: power, love, and mindfulness. A client's ability to navigate these three dimensions determines how well they function in their life and relationships – and how well therapists operate from a therapeutic "sweet spot" determines their ability to help clients become more emotionally intelligent. Outcome studies confirm that the most salient predictors of therapeutic success are not related to theoretical orientation or techniques, but to the therapeutic relationship.

In this recording, Dr. Alibrando presents the Interpersonal Triangle, a meta-model developed from the work of Karen Horney and Wilfred Bion. Applications will be made to improve understanding of clients, therapist countertransference, and the change process. Working the Triangle, a practical tool, will create the dynamic balance of power, love, and mindfulness for both therapist and client, and provide therapists with a roadmap to work through impasses with challenging clients. You will take the Interpersonal Triangle Inventory to identify your therapeutic "sweet spot" with any client at any given time. This recording provides tools to transform the therapeutic process regardless of therapist theoretical orientation or level of experience.
