Spring 2016 Professional Development Workshops at NCSSS
Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy
Friday June 3rd 9am-4pm
The Catholic University of America
Jon Frederickson, MSW is co-chair of the ISTDP Training Program at the Washington School of Psychiatry where he has been on the faculty since 1988. He was previously chair of the Supervision Training Program and the Advanced Psychotherapy Training Program at the Washington School of Psychiatry as well as chair of their Faculty Clinical Council. He is also chair of the Norwegian ISTDP Training Program, Co-chair of the Italian Core Training Program sponsored by the Italian EDT Society, and faculty of the ISTDP Training Program at the Laboratorium Psychoedukacji in Warsaw, Poland. He has published over twenty five articles and book chapters as well as two books. He has presented videotaped examples of his clinical work in the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Italy, Great Britain, Lebanon, Dubai, India, Australia, and throughout the United States. Among the highlights of his presentations have been several at Oxford University at St. Johns College and Magdalen College, and at UCLA. Before he became a therapist, Jon was a professional musician for a number of years. When he became a therapist he was struck by a big difference between therapy and music. Music is taught in a far more structured, organized, and systematic fashion to help musicians develop practical performing skills so they can create great art. Jon’s lifetime goal has been to learn to teach therapy as well as his music teachers taught music.
THIS COURSE IS FULL- REGISTRATION CLOSED
In this presentation Jon Frederickson, MSW will share clinical expertise, review case examples, and use videotaped sessions to show how to work with depressed patients who have not responded to earlier therapies.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to identify:
- how to identify defenses that will cause depression
- how to stop regression
- how to build the capacity to bear feelings without becoming depressed
- how to address acting out in session
We will view and study an initial videotaped session with a depressed client moment by moment, learning how to assess the patient's needs and how to address them. Unlike most workshops which talk about therapy, here we will see an actual therapy session. Rather than just learn theory, we will learn how to put theory into practice through interventions that lead to genuine change. You will come away knowing how to be more effective with your clients.
Six (6) hours of Social Work Continuing Education (CE) Credits will be provided at conclusion of this workshop for participants
