Brief Dynamic Psychotherapy: an art/craft or set of skills? with Anna Bravesmith

23 September 2018
The new NICE Guideline for Depression has just been published in draft, giving dynamic therapy a more favourable position than the previous guideline and assuring this approach of a place in NHS and Voluntary sector services. There is convincing research to support its effectiveness.

To practice brief therapy, what skills do you need? This workshop will promote awareness of some specific techniques in brief therapy through discussion of a clinical case and through role plays. We will look at forming a focus, the therapeutic relationship and balancing cognitive and affective components in treatment, especially around the ending.

Some FAQ’s we will address: How do you really evaluate progress in a patient? How do you use the transference in brief approaches? Is the end really the end? Please bring questions of your own and plenty of curiosity!

Anna Bravesmith has worked in NHS services for many years providing Brief Dynamic therapy with different patient populations. She trained firstly as an analytic psychotherapist and then as a Jungian analyst at the Society of Analytical Psychology. She trained as a Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy practitioner, supervisor and trainer with the Anna Freud Centre. She has a private practice in Highgate.

Our workshop events cost £30 for members and £45 for non-members.
