Rapid developments in electronic communication have revolutionized the ways in which we transmit and receive information across geographical locations and time zones.  Innovations in digital technology have significantly impacted upon the way we think, behave, communicate and work.  In the field of psychotherapy, clinicians have increasingly begun to use digital media not only to exchange information and communicate with one another, but also to using its various forms for supervision and for working with clients.

Synopsis

 

Whilst a great deal has been written about passionate states of being, sexuality, jealousy, envy, guilt and reparation, what has received less attention is the lack of passion, the mindless and empty states which certain passive clients present to us.

 

In this workshop Anne will be exploring the difficult territory in the therapeutic progress with a client when things seem to  grind to a halt and we  seemingly meet passivity, lack of curiosity and lack of hope.  This raises a  difficult issue, is the client despairingly giving up on us, on therapy and / or herself? While we are cognizant that our therapeutic response needs to be different in such situations – how do we differentiate between defensive retreat and despair?
