Presenter: D. Michael Louderback, MA, LMHC

Discussant: Sue Neel Carlson, MA, LMHC

Feb 22nd, 2020


The practice of psychodynamic psychotherapy is a bit like juggling while riding a unicycle. We ask ourselves to bring attention (and at some point, our comprehension) to multiple elements of emotional experience within our patient, within the therapeutic hour (and process) and within ourselves. Daunting? Yes, but also exhilarating. The best way to learn the craft is to begin where you are and prepare for some skinned knees along the way. We will work with some clinical material as well as share some aspects of our own development as therapists.
