The Edge workshop
The Edge of the Psychotherapist meets the edge of the client
The Censorship Process- From Distillation to Essence- A Relational Methodology
Elana Leigh will be presenting a one day workshop on her recently published chapter "The Censorship Process- From Distillation to Essence- A relational methodology"
"Working relationally brings the personal and the professional aspects of the psychotherapist's identity to the foreground, opening up the vulnerability to overstepping boundaries. Rather, therefore than viewing skills and methodology as incompatible with working in this way, I suggest that this demands that we take greater responsibility for astute clinical thinking and method" (Leigh, E. 2011)
This workshop will explore and focus on:
The workshop presentation will be both didactic and experiential. There will be an emphasis on developing skills in this complex area of working with the therapeutic relationship as a central curative factor.
“If you want to be challenged in your work as a psychotherapist, I would recommend the Edge workshop. If you want to understand more about what works, and importantly what doesn’t, in therapy, I would recommend the Edge workshop. If you want to be a better therapist, I would recommend the Edge workshop. And if you are prepared to look at how much your work is about you, don’t miss it!”
