anzap icon 1000 2Dr Anthony Korner - Communicative Exchange, Psychotherapy and the Resonant Self

Date: 20 Feb 2021

Location: TBA

In this seminar Anthony Korner will discuss his recently published book and will demonstrate how important communication and resonance are to the development of a sense of self. This process of realization is embedded in social relatedness and is intrinsically tied to language. Anthony will highlight the potential for change that lies in therapy that engages both heart and mind between patient and therapist, and how language and relating are fundamental to psychotherapy.

anzap icon 1000 2Dr Joan Haliburn - Short -term Dynamic Interpersonal Psychotherapy (STDIP) – to relieve distress, develop awareness and improve functioning

Date: 17 Apr 2021

Location: TBA

Informed by the principles of the Conversational Model of Robert Hobson & Russell Meares, this model of short -term therapy is integrated, structured, time-limited, dynamic, and relational, paying attention to the possibility that any patient walking through our doors could have experienced early trauma and providing therapists with additional skills to work with patients who meet the criteria for short term work. It is one of many models of short -term therapy, but is trauma-informed and takes note of trauma in the way one approaches and continues to assess and manage patients.
