The 9th Annual Seymour Fisher Memorial Workshop - Therapeutic Communication: An Integrative and Relational Approach

Paul L. Wachtel, Ph.D., CUNY Distinguished Professor, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, City College of CUNY

For most of its history, the practice of psychotherapy has been characterized by competition between competing schools. The insights and methods of approaches outside one's own orientation have tended to be ignored. This workshop will examine both underlying principles and processes that unite what on the surface appear to be radically opposed theories and clinical approaches and the important ways in which the competing approaches do in fact differ, enabling us to synergistically combine their differential strengths. The workshop will strongly emphasize clinical practice, and will be accompanied by video presentations of the therapy sessions and detailed clinical examples that highlight the often profound implications of even small differences in the ways that the therapist puts his understanding into words. It will also elaborate a theoretical framework - cyclical psychodynamics - that is rooted in both the relational point of view in psychoanalysis and an integrative program that brings together elements of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavorial, systemic, and experiential approaches. The workshop will highlight the way that clinical practice, theory, and research mutually enhance each other and will examine some of the confusions that have been associate with the increasing demands around the world for "evidence based practice." The clinical and theoretical implications of these confusions and misunderstanding will be explored.

Paul Wachtel, Ph.D. disclosed that he does not have financial relationships with commerical interests.
