Earn 2 CE credits
Often as clinicians we can feel blocked, stuck, frustrated, hopeless and more. These feelings are often clues to unconscious emotional communications in treatment from very early on in a clients life, where words were not formed.
A clinicians art making in response to these feelings can often tell the story of their clients as well as release blocks and resistances to feel those very primitive experiences.
Presenter
Lisa Thomas received a BFA from the Corcoran School of Art, a Master’s in art therapy from the College of New Rochelle and recently completed the modern psychoanalytic certificate at ACAP. She has worked at Essex County Hospital Center with chronically mental ill adults for 14 years using modern psychoanalytic techniques and has had a private practice for 5 years.
Understanding the unconscious is Lisa’s primary goal in treatment. In addition to modern psychoanalytical techniques she believes art gives a deep understanding and outlet of the therapeutic process to both the clinician and clients. Those words are sometimes not enough to process the experience of being a clinician.
There is a $15.00 fee for the CE certificate.
There is a suggested donation of $20

Mentalization

Mentalizing is the process of attributing meaning both to the internal psychic processes of others and internally to one’s own psychic processes. It is rooted in our early development and the result of successfully forming a stable attachment to our primary caregivers and being able to maintain the constancy of that internalized attachment through the vicissitudes of various emotional states and relationships. BPD is both a serious and complex disorder characterized by difficulty with emotional regulation, impulse control, and both unstable relationships and self-image. Topics will include strategies used by people with BPD to manage their lack of ability to mentalize, the problems BPD patients have with mentalization, the structure of MBT (Mentalization-Based Treatment), therapist stance and attitude, basic interventions, and the role and effectiveness of both individual and group therapy.
