Working with Strong Emotions: 2023-2024

8:30am to 1:00pm

The main goal of these three modules is to help therapists attune to and respond therapeutically to anxiety, negative emotional states, and emotional dysregulation, not only with family members but also within the team and person-of-the-therapist.  In cases presented for case consultation, Dr. Pollack draws on her training in Emotionally Focused therapy, trauma, and attachment theory to help therapists look beneath family member behavioral presentations, identify underlying emotional states, and help family members to practice connecting more authentically.
