At this virtual CE journal club from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. ET we will be joined by Marvin Goldfried, Ph.D., author of "Obtaining Consensus in Psychotherapy: What Holds Us Back?:" His commitment to furthering the field of psychotherapy in the service of reducing suffering has been immense and ongoing for decades. In the journal article (required reading) that is the focus of this one-hour Q & A CE event he will respond to questions about the barriers to obtaining consensus in psychotherapy. He notes that there are transtheoretical principles of change that promote growth in clients -- these lie between theory and technique. These principles and associated constructs that often are repackaged and renamed by those of differing orientations have also been the focus of his Talking Therapy You Tube channel and Spotify podcast with friend & colleague Allen Frances, M.D. Talking Therapy offers a living history from two wise mental health professionals whose influence on the fields of diagnosis and therapy have been immense. Dr. Goldfried has remained committed to the intention of obtaining consensus so that the field of psychotherapy can grow in the service of our clients. Bring your questions from the required reading & / or the Taking Therapy series for Dr. Goldfried as they will prompt dialogue!
Wisdom Wednesday begins with a guided opening mindfulness practice to support non-reactivity & respectful dialogue. Future journal clubs will focus on some of the constructs that continue to emerge as therapeutic including assertiveness, compassion, and what is essential to support behavior and ultimately cognitive change and what conditions support exposure to corrective emotional experiences.
Attendees are required to read the journal article that can be accessed using links above and come prepared for respectful dialogue as we contemplate the below CE objective.
