We all find ourselves at odds with family members, friends, and colleagues from time to time. Why is it sometimes so hard to get close to the people we care about? And why do so many of our clients persistently fight and complain about friends or family members, even when we provide them with outstanding tools to overcome those conflicts?
Dr. Burns argues that effective relationship therapy cannot simply involve a series of techniques designed to enhance intimacy and communication, no matter how sensible or helpful those techniques might seem to be. That’s because darker and more devious motives compete with our desires for loving, joyous relationships. The failure to deal with those motives is the most common cause of therapeutic failure. In the workshop, Dr. Burns will illustrate powerful TEAM-CBT techniques for working with individuals as well as couples with troubled relationships. He will give you the opportunity to work on a conflict you’ve experienced with a friend, family member, colleague or patient so that you can gain a personal perspective as well as a deeper clinical understanding of these new techniques. Teaching methods will include didactic presentations, Q&A, practice exercises, and live demonstrations
Elements of T.E.A.M. Therapy
T = Testing. You will learn fast, accurate techniques for the initial evaluation and diagnosis of trauma clients and for assessing clients; progress along with their feelings of trust and understanding in subsequent sessions.
E = Empathy. Dr. Burns will emphasize the unique challenges of empathizing with trauma clients and will demonstrate challenging empathy training methods that can quickly and dramatically improve your empathy skills with trauma clients as well as family, friends, and colleagues.
A = (Paradoxical) Agenda Setting. Dr. Burns will pinpoint the eight most common forms of therapeutic resistance in trauma clients and illustrate 15 innovative ways to melt away resistance before trying to “help” the client.
M = Methods. You will learn large numbers of specific techniques to boost self-esteem, eliminate numbing, reduce anxiety, and enhance feelings of warmth, trust, and intimacy in trauma clients. The goal is to bring about a rapid, dramatic, and complete elimination of symptoms.
