Positive psychology challenges the idea that success stops at bringing clients to their baseline. Using a wellness-driven lens, this strengths-based approach emphasizes working past alleviation of suffering, past merely surviving, into a place of thriving. Positive psychology is not new. Though the term was coined in the 1990s, this approach blends together person-centered concepts, mindfulness, and self-compassion. It allows us to work with clients in a way that offers empowerment and optimism to promote change.
This presentation will examine the benefits and opportunities associated with Positive Psychology as well as reinforce participants’ understanding of how this model is not different, but complementary, to our other tried and true therapies. The presenter will demonstrate how to remain grounded in our favorite modalities while integrating the PERMA model of wellbeing. We'll review the research behind this evidence-based framework. Participants will receive a variety of techniques and interventions which might inspire others’ creativity in building their own clinical applications.
1:45 pm - 4:45 pm EST
The debate regarding the use of therapist self-disclosure in therapy sessions has been a long-standing dilemma for many mental health therapists. With research studies primarily focused on the use of self-disclosure with adult clients, the verdict is still out as to whether self-disclosure is appropriate and when it might be helpful. Limited research is available regarding the use of self-disclosure with child clients, and play therapists are tasked with the ethical decision of whether to engage in self-disclosure, how much and in what context self-disclosure is appropriate and how this might look during a play therapy session with a child.
This training focuses on examining the research that is available, discussing ethical considerations in the use of self-disclosure as well as exploring the types of self-disclosure and the possible reasons for engaging in self-disclosure as a therapeutic tool. The training will focus on the play therapy model of Synergetic Play Therapy, discussing elements of resonance, window of tolerance and co-regulation. During this training, the facilitator will discuss anecdotal case studies pertaining to using self-disclosure - identifying both positive and negative experiences. Interventions and techniques will be discussed as to how to utilize appropriate experiential self-disclosure in the play therapy room.
