Relational and Integrative Psychotherapy
Richard Erskine, Ph.D.
Sponsored by UK Relational Psychotherapy Association
and The Manchester Psychotherapy Training Institute
This five-day experiential workshop will focus on the centrality of the therapeutic relationship while emphasizing the in-depth methods of a psychotherapy that integrates the client’s affect, cognition, physiology and behaviour. The themes of this workshop may include Life Scripts, unconscious pre-reflective patterns, nonverbal communication, introjection and physiological survival reactions. Various methods of working within an involved therapeutic relationship, supportive regression, and/or a caring body therapy will be taught and demonstrated.
This experiential workshop is for mental health professionals who want to apply theory in clinical practice and to enhance their effectiveness through identifying aspects of their own contact interruption, life script, and countertransference.
