Title Advances in Relational Psychotherapyhttp://www.confer.uk.com/module-relational.html
About The vast influence of Relational Psychoanalysis in the last 25 years has evolved into one of the most significant paradigm shifts in the field, impacting on almost every psychotherapy modality. This package offers a set of videoed talks on relational theory and practice, presented by some of most influential author-practitioners, and is designed to illustrate relational theory as it is applied to clinical technique. The talks also cover the historical development of that thinking and an elaboration of key concepts: inter-subjectivity, the mutual influence of the two subjects in the process, the ‘Third’, enactment, rupture and repair, the therapist’s relational history, and the patient’s capacity to make a healing contribution to the process. Combined with study-guides, research links, transcriptions and captions, the module provides a sophisticated, layered and comprehensive exploration of the subject for practitioners of all levels of clinical experience.

Title Psychotherapeutic Work with Intergenerational Traumahttp://www.confer.uk.com/module-intergenerational.html
About It is widely accepted that the traumas of parents, grand-parents and ancestors are deeply woven into the psychological fabric of the living, often manifesting in the form of psychological vulnerability throughout life. This may include a susceptibility to PTSD-type symptoms, borderline relational characteristics, somatisation and even psychosis.This package of talks offers the psychotherapist, counsellor or psychologist a rich blend of theoretical perspectives and clinical experience on identifying and resolving psychological issues that stem from the patient’s family history of trauma.
Our twelve presenters unravel this complex, fascinating and multi-faceted topic with great insight and therapeutic wisdom, elaborating the following issues:

·       An understanding of different levels of intergenerational trauma: historical or societal trauma, family trauma and traumatic attachments, and how these may interplay

·       The mechanisms by which traumatic affect is transmitted from one generation to the next

·       Illustration of how intergenerational trauma can manifest in specific psychological vulnerabilities

·       Clinical insights into how we can intervene psychotherapeutically to break the cycles of the past in traumatised families

Module Speakers Dr Pamela Alexander ·       Interrupting intergenerational cycles of trauma and violence Part I & Part II
Dr Aileen Alleyne ·       Intergenerational trauma to intergenerational healing 
Dr Doris Brothers ·       A relational systems approach to intergenerational trauma ·       Intergenerational trauma, Freud and bullying 
Prophecy Coles ·       A psychodynamic exploration of the unconscious transmission of trauma across the generations
Dr Françoise Davoine ·       The “stoppage of time” due to intergenerational trauma
PART I: Theoretical presentation 
·       The “stoppage of time” due to intergenerational trauma
PART II: A clinical example of healing the intergenerational trauma of both patient and therapist

Title Neurobiology and its Applications to Psychotherapy http://www.confer.uk.com/interpersonal-neurobiology.html
About This package of resources brings together a fresh collection of video and audio presentations to illuminate the relationship between neuroscience and psychotherapy. The interface between the two disciplines has aroused great recent interest and this collection of talks asks some of the most influential neuropsychologists and practitioners to explain the neuroscientific concepts that they consider the significant in developing the skills of psychotherapy or in understanding the mind. 

One of the key questions to engage psychotherapists is the extent to which neurobiology is interpersonal. Insights from infant development studies, supported by scientific research into the brain and peripheral nervous system, have revealed the dynamic interplay between the mind of the mother/carer and that of the infant at the levels of both emotional and biological growth. This neuroplasticity is found to be a life-long relational phenomenon, raising the question about how profoundly developmental deficits can be relationally redressed.

 

Neurobiology is also of relevance in understanding any single emotional moment between two people due to its insights into the complex, unconscious and dynamic chemistry between the two mind-body systems. Insights into the biological underpinnings of our emotional life are offering a deeper understanding of affective states such as anxiety, depression, hyper or hypo arousal and techniques for modulating these. New therapeutic approaches that emphasise the somatic as an implicit part of emotional life, and thus therapy, are flourishing. Equally, the school of relational psychotherapy now enjoys an empirical basis for its theories of intersubjectivity and embodied resonance.

 

Some psychotherapists, for example Sensorimotor practitioners, use neurobiology to educate their patients about the psychophysiology of their affective states and how these can managed – for example, through mindfulness practices – the efficacy of which is now scientifically endorsed. These, of course, can be practised by both partners in the therapy relationship, allowing the self-regulating therapist to support the psychophysiology of their patient.

 

This vast and rapidly multiplying body of knowledge creates a bridge between empirically based research findings and the more conceptual field of psychotherapy. Answers to such questions such as “what constitutes the relational mind?” now have the potential of adding scientific knowledge to intuitive wisdom. These theoretical advances appear to rely on the accumulated results of experimental research, drawn together by individuals who identify the significant results and build a new theoretical framework to connect and contain these. These paradigm changers in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, many of whom are speakers in this module, are multidisciplinary thinkers who are taking psychotherapy beyond the purely conceptual, whilst holding onto its best traditions of relatedness. This is a fascinating era of consolidation and growth of knowledge, and we hope you will enjoy this online resource.
