August 31st 2019            Integrated Mindful Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy 
Event Date: 31-Aug-2019

1 day Saturday seminar – 9 am to 5 pm (registration from 8.30am)
  • Morning sessionDeveloping Evenly Suspended Attention - Intrapersonal Mindfulness for the Therapist
  • Afternoon sessionInsightful Relating - Interpersonal Mindfulness for the Therapeutic Dyad
Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy can benefit from applying Mindfulness Skills and Techniques for the Therapist, the Client and the Therapeutic Process. Clinical vignettes will be used to illustrate points raised. 

There will be time for experiencing mindfulness intrapersonally as a therapist as well as interpersonally with another in an insightful relational exercise. 

Dr. Tan will speak to how a psychotherapist practicing mindfulness meditations improves in their establishment and maintenance of an evenly suspended attention. When the therapist comes from a state of mindfulness the capacity for a necessary holding, caring and compassionate psychological posture is enhanced. Mindfulness itself helps the therapist manage challenging countertransferential moments. It contains the container. 
  
When the client also learns to engender and remain in mindfulness as much as possible, the therapeutic process increases in efficacy. The collaborative co-mindfulness opens up time, space and safety  for speaking and bearing with the previously unspeakable and unbearable.  Such interpersonal mindfulness invites and sustains the deep, meaningful, and integrative analytic process. Therapeutic repair of inevitable ruptures occurs much more readily and competently. 


September 1st 2019       Spirituality and Psychotherapy  
Event Date: 01-Sep-2019
Register Now: Dr EKT - Sunday only

Half day seminar on Sunday afternoon – 1 pm to 5 pm (registration from 12.30pm)
  • 1st session - The Spiritual in Psychotherapy
  • 2nd session - Managing Spiritual Moments in Therapy
Spirituality is now raised and discussed much more readily in psychotherapeutic endeavours.  It is useful to consider where religion, spirituality and psychotherapy converges and diverges. In the long term deep analytic journey spiritual matters and moments inevitably arises.  Therapists need to be able to be sensitive to this and learn how to manage such vital moments without analysing it away nor trying to be a spiritual teacher for the client. There will be time in small groups to discuss and learn together this growing area in our therapeutic work.
