Overview / aims:
Decades of psychotherapy research demonstrates that the therapeutic relationship is fundamental to good outcomes in any therapy. Yet problems and ruptures to the therapeutic relationship are common and stressful, and they can present challenges to therapists across all levels of experience. Understanding and formulating problems in the relationship and making them the focus of collaborative dialogue are all essential components of successfully addressing them.
Is there consensus based on research regarding what are helpful and unhelpful therapist responses to ruptures or strains in the therapeutic relationship? Yes, there is, and interestingly, research suggests that experienced therapists tend to make more unhelpful responses even after intensive training on the subject. Making theory practice links throughout, this workshop will draw on the application of Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) tools and skills to focus on what helps and what does not in this workshop designed to help therapists work better when the therapeutic relationship gets stuck. While drawing ideas from CAT, this workshop will be accessible to therapists working across different modalities, including CBT therapists.
