Workshop 11 – Erving Polster, PhD – Personhood and Therapy Technique Converged
Dr. Polster will feature concentration, curiosity, fascination and simplicity of observation as agents of personhood. He will also offer four cornerstones of methodology. These are: the tightening of therapeutic sequences, establishing good quality contact, eliciting relevant stories, and identifying parts of the self. Live therapeutic sessions will illustrate the principles.
- To accentuate the importance and attractiveness of small steps in therapy.
- To restore importance to aspects of self previously negated.
- To elicit key stories and to highlight the accompanying feelings and insights.
