Affect Phobia Therapy – An Experiential Integrative Approach

Hosted by Robert Johansson and Kristin Osborn

Learn about Affect Phobia Therapy – an integrative approach that combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and experiential techniques into a powerful whole

A FREE WORKSHOP WITH KRISTIN OSBORN, OPEN TO EVERYONE

Affect Phobia Therapy (APT) is based on the premise that internal conflicts about feelings underlie most psychologically-based disorders. APT is an integrative model of short term dynamic psychotherapy that was developed by Harvard Medical School psychologist and researcher, Leigh McCullough.

In this workshop, participants will learn how to conceptualize an emotional conflict and how to use experiential, cognitive- behavioral and psychodynamic techniques to treat them. They will also deepen their understanding of how a phobic response to an emotion is developed and maintained, like when people are unable to feel angry and assert themselves. Emphasis will be placed on assessment and treatment of current problems that originate from the past.

This interactive workshop will include video segments from psychotherapy sessions to demonstrate techniques and interventions, a therapy demonstration and the opportunity to discuss cases.

Kristin Osborn who was trained by Leigh McCullough and founded the Certified APT™-Training Program is leading the workshop. She presents internationally, is a member of the faculty at Harvard Medical School and is the Director of the Harvard Medical School Psychotherapy Research Program. She co-authored Paraverbal Communication in Psychotherapy: Beyond the Words and is on on the executive board of the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration and President Emeritus of the International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association. She has extensively published articles and chapters on training clinicians and you can learn more about her and her work at www.kristinosborn.com.

Beyond the Words with Kristin Osborn

Learn how the non-verbal interplay deepens the therapeutic alliance

Learning to listen is a skill we learn in graduate school, but how many clinicians are taught to listen with their eyes? Or listen with their feelings? Or listen within the transference? Learn how the non-verbal interplay between patient and therapist appears to deepen the power of the spoken word. In this workshop, you’ll watch video excerpts from live psychotherapy sessions and receive research tools you can use in your own practice. You’ll learn how to explore non-verbal interplay to gain additional information and meaning to make informed interventions with your clients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to search for para-verbal clues that underly the psychotherapy interchange
  • Learn how to include non-verbal observations and interventions into your work
  • Learn how to evaluate whether non-verbal interplay has increased the effectiveness of their treatment
  • Learn how research tools can improve your clinical skills

Learning Methods:

    • Video-segments of psychotherapy sessions
    • Interactive exercises
    • PowerPoint presentation
    • Achievement of Therapeutic Objectives Rating Scale
    • Achievement of Therapeutic Objectives-Therapist Rating Scale

A Roadmap to Closeness with Kristin Osborn

Learn how to cultivate closeness within the therapeutic relationship

It can be hard to help your client experience closeness when you struggle with it yourself. Cultivating an honest and close relationship with your client is an essential therapeutic goal, but it leaves many clinicians feeling lost or anxious, especially if they have not worked through their own blocks to closeness. In this workshop, we’ll teach you a step-by- step approach on how to cultivate closeness with your client. You’ll learn how to avoid inadvertently encouraging compliance, dependency or a therapeutic rupture. You’ll learn how to help your client experience a deep sense of self-compassion, self-love and self-care. You’ll then learn how to assess your client’s capacity for closeness and how to intervene where they are at, rather than where you want them to be. You’ll also learn how to help your client feel an increased sense of trust and develop the skills to set limits within their relationships.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to build a working alliance
  • How to identify a block to closeness
  • How to cultivate self-compassion, self-love and self-care
  • How to use exposure and desensitization for a positive ‘sense of self’
  • How to assess your clients attachment style
  • How to use exposure and desensitization for a realistic ‘sense of other’

Learning Methods:

  • Video-segments of psychotherapy sessions
  • Interactive Exercises
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • APT-Forms
