With this training you will have a clear perspective on change and the nature of psychotherapeutic work. This will enable you to strengthen your posture, develop a fine perception of the clinical situations in session and above all a better relevance in your interventions and a greater ease in positioning yourself towards the patient

We will share different perspectives on what psychotherapy is, how it is supposed to work and the different conceptions of change. Based on the participants’ beliefs, we will discuss the main perspectives on these topics and the differences they imply in the therapist’s posture towards the patient.

In support of the clinic and on the basis of current research work developing concepts such as “corrective experience”, “therapeutic alliance” [“corrective emotional experience” and “therapeutic alliance” are two major concepts from psychotherapy research] or “secret patient longing” [“Secret Longing” is a notion theorised and developed at IDeT], we will propose a general and integrative model of change taking into account the singularity of the therapeutic encounter.
We will accompany the participants in putting these notions into practice and handling them in the clinic.

Theoretical-clinical and experiential training in small groups

  • Reflective work and self-evaluation in intercession.

Our modules are built around taking into account the specific needs and resources of the participants, which encourages their self-training. They offer a safe, small group, resourceful environment
