 B. Approaches to Developing Therapist Advanced Alliance Skills (July 1, 2 pm. to 6 pm.)

Manuela H. Habicht, Ph.D., Toowoomba, Australia

 The objective of this workshop is to provide supervisors with an overview of behaviors found useful in assisting therapists to develop advanced working alliance skills in a multi-disciplinary mental health team setting. The importance of developing a positive supervisory working alliance with your supervisee cannot be overemphasized. The supervisee adopts good alliance building behaviors they have experienced, observed, and learned in supervision. Clients are then likely to develop positive working alliances with the supervisee. For the purposes of developing a positive supervisory alliance with your supervisee, the therapist/client issues discussed should be considered equally applicable to the supervisor and supervisee relationship.

 Workshop presenter: Dr. Habicht is a Team Leader in the Community Adult Mental Health Service and is in private practice in Queensland, Australia. She has extensive training in clinical hypnosis, psychoanalytic studies, therapy, and international business. She is a member of the MAPS, AFAIM, and an Associate Member of APA.

 C. Divorce: Helping Clients Cope (July 2 8 am. to noon)

 Matti Gershenfeld, Ed.D., ICP President 2000-2001, Interim Secretary-General, ICP, Jenkintown, PA, USA

 Divorce is probably the most traumatic experience individuals have to live through – today, tomorrow, and on into the future. There are reverberations everywhere – with families of origin, with the ex-spouse, with children, with work, with building a new single life. Divorce has been prevalent for more than 30 years. How do we as psychologists help clients to cope, do well with their children, and build a new life. Through lectures, role-plays, small group analyses, and handouts, participants will focus on areas of special difficulty. These will include: stages of divorce, effect of divorce on children by age groups and gender, relationships with ex-spouse, custody arrangements, and getting on with life.

 Dr. Gershenfeld is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. She has been an Adjunct Professor at Temple University for 25 years, has taught at many universities in Europe, Israel, and Australia, and is the Immediate Past-President of ICP.

 D. Beyond the Ties that Bind Adult Children and Their Parents: A Satir Experience that Prepares Your Grown Child to be Your Equal (July 2 1 pm. to 5 pm.)

 Sandra E.S. Neil, Ph.D., Satir Centre of Australia, Melbourne, Australia

 What can parents do to enable their grown children to feel of equal value? The way we treat each other establishes a model for inter-generational relationships. There are binding ties between adult children and parents, with orders of precedence, and a symmetry of love requiring conscious understanding and needs to belong, to maintain a balance of giving and taking, and needs for safety and social convention and predictability. Satir’s systemic therapy is focused on change at the level of being, as well as changes in doing, feeling, and perceiving. This workshop will be experiential and theoretical, using psychodynamic and family systems perspectives. The Satir Model incorporates ways of viewing the world, using family history in therapy, owing and changing feelings, and understanding the defense stances, especially anger, fear, and hurt.

 Dr. Neil is World Area Chair for ICP and a recent Past President of ICP. She is the Founder and Director of the Satir Centre of Australia, and is a member of the Australian Psychological Society, the Australian Psychological Society College of Clinical Psychology, the Australian Psychological Society Division of Independently Practicing Psychologists, and the Australian College of Psychologists in Clinical Private Practice. She is the Australian National Representative to the International Academy of Family Psychology.

 E. Energy Therapies and Healing (Post-Convention, July 5 9 am. to I pm.)

 Chok C. Hiew, Ph.D., University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, NB, Canada

 Self-care to promote health and wellness relies fundamentally on the individual’s ability to learn self-regulation techniques to relax and manage unhealthy cognitions, emotions, and behaviors. There are many self-regulation techniques based on the biopsychosocial model of stress and health. However, for people living in harsh environments and social conditions that produce profound personal trauma and agony more effective and ecologically matched solutions are needed. In Eastern healing traditions, such as in TCM (traditional oriental medicine), Qigong and meditation they are referred to as methods of enhancing resilence and self-healing. In these traditions, the fundamental dynamic leading to normal and healthy physiological functioning is a smooth bioenergy flow. Emotional problems and stressful thoughts that effect well-being are altered with the bio-energy-consciousness dynamic. The stress response is replaced by the self-repair response and homeostasis and healthy physiological functioning are also restored,
