Deliberate Practice for Psychodynamic Therapists

Deliberate Practice for Psychodynamic Therapists

5.00 - 40.00
Tony Rousmaniere and Hanna Levenson will describe and demonstrate new methods of therapist training and supervision in psychodynamic therapy based on Deliberate Practice (DP). DP is a method for trainees and therapists to rehearse challenging clinical skills in conditions similar to situations with real clients, in contrast to traditional methods of graduate training which are primarily intellectual (e.g., reading, writing, discussing, supervision, self-reflection). The presentation will include a live demonstration of practicing one such skill (empathy) as well as video clips of trainees rehearsing another skill (gathering information for a dynamic formulation). Discussion will focus on the benefits and limitations of such skills-based methods for learning psychodynamic therapy, a treatment model that depends on deep emotional authenticity, a sense of uncertainty, and the uniqueness of the therapist-patient dyad. Will be held on Zoom. CEUs: 1.5.
