    One is the loneliest number… Two can be as bad as one...

    Loneliness- From Theories to Therapy

    Clients of any age often are existentially alone- sometimes suffering unbearably, although they may be surrounded by others in couples, families, and communities: school, church, work, and more… and with a caring compassionate therapist.   This training is based on the premise that clinicians usually already hold an expansive repertoire of theoretical wisdom that they may not consciously draw upon in therapy.  As such, the trainer will prompt participants to identify and utilize- translate the theoretical wisdom they hold conceptually for practical therapeutic interventions and strategies to meet client needs for self-esteem, identity, connection, relationships, and meaning. 

    The training starts with a simple question of "Why do you pick up a baby who's crying?" along with identification of key client populations and common presenting issues. These will be referenced throughout the training for therapists to gain insight and direction for their work.  Attachment styles and theories, key life learnings, core communications from relationships, rules of developmental theories, life stage theory, personality disorders, and cross-cultural models (including male and female, individualistic and communal) will be the beginning references to prompt for three practical implications for therapy and therapists.
