Have you ever felt stuck or frozen in a session with a client? Has a client ever thrown you a curveball that left you running to supervision?
Introducing the virtual therapy room, led by U.K. psychotherapist, sex therapist and certified addiction therapist, Gavin Sharpe. In this fun, interactive and informative webinar, and in collaboration with the International Institute for Trauma & Addiction Professionals (IITAP), attendees will be given the opportunity to inhabit the role of therapist, client or observer. In our experiential webinar, we will re-create some of those curveball scenarios and unravel the stuckness together.
Even the most experienced therapist can be momentarily thrown off course. It’s what we do in those moments that count and often shape the therapeutic work. This webinar is an opportunity to explore the art of thinking on your feet while working in difficult situations especially with clients recovering from sex addiction.
Working as a therapist requires us to live with uncertainty. We all learn from our mistakes. Join this webinar where making mistakes is permissible, encouraged and non-shaming. Let’s get it wrong together. There will be experiential role plays interspersed throughout the training and participants will be invited to play the role of therapist, client and observer. Role plays will alternate between the larger group and will also take place in smaller break-out rooms.
The content is intended to be challenging, thought-provoking and based on real scenarios. The virtual therapy room is intended to stimulate leaning, be fun and to provide the therapist with immediate skills to apply in their work, including:-
- Gaining confidence in handling difficult situations
- Learning how to think on your feet and not freeze in difficult situations
- Enhanced problem-solving skills
- An understanding of creating and applying better boundaries
Upon completion of this training participants will be able to:
- Understand how transference and countertransference are often played out in the therapy room.
- Gain a greater sense of confidence in handling difficult situations in the therapy room.
- Enhance their skills in lateral thinking and problem-solving.
- Understand more about therapeutic boundaries and how they can be healthily applied in our work.
