Learning to gain permission from the unconscious is a subtle clinical skill often overlooked in the course of our training. We’d like to offer you an opportunity to focus your continuing education in the direction of becoming more conscious of your unique impact on the therapeutic relationship. You will gain more understanding of how to assess client readiness as you facilitate progressively deeper levels of self-awareness. Upon completion of this course, participants will have demonstrated the ability to intentionally place attention on clinically relevant, yet less obvious, aspects of gaining permission of the unconscious in the therapeutic experience as a springboard for inspiring compassionate presence, enhancing relational depth, deepening therapeutic intimacy, advancing clinical work, and increasing positive clinical outcomes.
Integrative in its approach, this course includes insights from psychoanalysis, psychodynamic psychotherapy, Buddhist psychology, and trauma therapy, including perspectives from Philip Bromberg, Darlene Ehrenberg, Janina Fisher, Harold Searles, and John Welwood.

“I found How to Transform Unconscious Relational Dynamics to be an insightful course. It was especially helpful in allowing me to become more aware of how to attune to and gain permission of the unconscious. The exercises facilitated a deeper awareness of how I sit in the chair. I would recommend this course to mental health professionals who are particularly interested in psychodynamic psychotherapy or those who want to understand how to negotiate countertransference material and/or reactions.”Colby, LCSW
