When Things Go Off the Rails with Kristin Osborn and Guest Presenter (Anne Koskenniemi)
February 14 @ 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM$90.00
Learn how to turn therapeutic ruptures into opportunities for connection.
When a therapeutic rupture occurs, it’s natural for a therapist to become anxious and defended, but sometimes our response can get in the way of treatment. How can you help yourself stay calm and in charge of your own anxiety in the face of a therapeutic rupture? What do you do if you become defensive in a non-constructive way? How can you see a rupture as an opportunity to work through conflict? How can you stay on task or readjust therapeutic objectives? Kristin Osborn will use video segments in the first part of this interactive workshop to illustrate the signs of a rupture, its impact on the alliance and how to respond in a therapeutic manner. In the second part of this workshop, Certified APT™-Therapist, Anne Koskenniemi from Lulea, Sweden will join Kristin Osborn. Together they will facilitate a compassionate, supportive group process so participants can feel comfortable sharing their own experiences or fears with therapeutic ruptures.
