Centre For Emotions

Empowering trainers to enhance their therapy skills, the doctor will commence training sessions for psychologists, counsellors and psychiatry students from March 2020.

 A). SIX WEEKEND ONLINE MODULE

Therapy training sessions will be done with small groups to facilitate individual training with deep emphasis on each trainee’s personal style and orientation. A lot of the training is to enhance the already existing style of the therapist and work through difficult areas in their own personal work so that they are better equipped to work with their clients. Training is imparted using the psychodynamic model, so group interaction and dynamics will be integrated in the learning module. As participants recognize their own strengths and become more aware of their processing styles, they may use them to enhance their working styles. Training will include training videos from established schools, mock therapy sessions, group processes, recommended texts, skill enhancement material and supervision.

Our first training module started with a daylong workshop on ISTDP at Hyderabad by Dr Thomas Brod from UCLA in Jan 2017 and was extremely well received.Participants came from all over India.

Our second training was for post graduates of psychiatry on attachment theory and relationship counselling in April 17.30 students participated.
