What’s Love Got to Do With It? Somatic Treatment Under a Psychodynamic Umbrella

September 30, 2023 @ 10:00am - 12:00pm EDT

Presented by Presented by Boris Thomas, JD, PhD, with discussant Huey Hawkins, Jr., PhD
Regardless of our approach to treatment, a foundational aspect of the work is the relationship between therapist and client/patient.

For those accustomed to working psychoanalytically or psychodynamically, how do we think about incorporating somatic work with our clients (or somatic work that our colleagues might do with our clients in an adjunctive treatment)?

Dr. Thomas will present and discuss his work using EMDR while holding a psychodynamic frame, managing transference and countertransference, and the attachment challenges that clients might bring to the work.
