Psychotherapy Training Groups: Studying the patient and the therapist
"For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them" -Aristotle
Join Dr. Mark Sehl PhD. in a private confidential setting where effective interventions working with "difficult" clients can be discussed, and where the therapist-patient dynamics that can expand or constrict therapeutic progress can be explored.
No charge for the first class. I look forward to meeting you.
See how Dr. Sehl works by watching his videos.
This will give you some idea of how Dr. Sehl thinks about what goes into a good therapy session.
You can join the training groups at any time,
space permitting. Call 212-228-3467 or email
me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending.
It may be possible to attend through teleconference.

Trainings will take place every other Tuesday starting Sept. 25, 2012. Taking both groups is recommended but not required. If you choose to take both, the cost per session is only $20.
1. Supervisory/Educational Training Group
$25 / session; Tuesdays 7 - 8 PM
Working with the "difficult client"-learn interventions that help a patient stay connected and remain in treatment and which interventions disturb that connection. Harm reduction and traditional approaches for people with drug & alcohol problems. The interventions of Dr. Spotnitz will be explored.
2. Transference/Countertransference/Resistance Group
$25 / session; Tuesdays 8 - 9 PM
To understand patients' hesitancy to talk freely we must understand our own reluctance to speak openly. When working with the "difficult client," therapists often get stuck in a countertransference resistance, resulting in a treatment stalemate. Learn about yourself and grow by taking risks in a supportive accepting environment. Sign up now and expand your awareness of yourself. That will help your clients in many areas of their life.
