Inter-Personal Communication Skills Series

Expressing Yourself

Tuesday February 19th, 2019
20:30

Facilitated by Rabbi Shlomo Kory

In this seminar we will explore the different ways you can express yourself . There are 5 patterns of expression that were codified by family therapist Virginia Satir. All of our communication uses one or a blend of these patterns. Here are 7 possibilities of how you could speak to neighbors who keep making noise late at night after building residents have asked them not to. It is important to keep in mind that there is no “correct” approach. Theoretically, any of these could be correct; it depends on the people involved and on the situation.

Blamer: “Stop making noise late at night!”
Placator: “I am really sorry to bother you again but I was just wondering if it might be possible to try to make less noise late at night…”
Computer: “There is a rule in the building not to make noise after 11:30…”
Distractor: “What was that beautiful music you were playing at 11:30 last night?! … “
Leveler: “I need to ask you to please not make noise late at night…”

Here are two examples of mixing and blending the 5 patterns.
  • “I am really sorry to bother you with this again but I need to ask you not to make noise late at night because it disturbs us. Last night was a bit less disturbing because we enjoyed the soft classical music that you were playing, but in general it does interfere with our sleeping so we would really appreciate it if you didn’t make noise after 11:30. Thanks so much…”
  • “Unfortunately once again there is a need to tell you that the noise coming from your apartment late at night is quite disturbing. I would like to remind you that there is a rule in the building not to make noise after 11:30 at night. In light of this, we would appreciate it if you would please make more of an effort to refrain from making any loud noise after 11:30. Thank you,”

The goal of the seminar is to become aware of the various options we have to express ourselves and how to use them for improved, more effective communication.

Integrating Meta-Therapeutic Processing in the Treatment of Complex Trauma
Feb 25 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
The Place, The Jerusalem Centre for Emotional Wellbeing is proud to invite All Mental Health Professionals to:

Integrating Meta-Therapeutic Processing in the Treatment of Complex Trauma

Mondays February 25th and March 4th
14:00-16:00

Facilitated by Sanford Landa, LCSW

In this training Meta Therapeutic Processing (MET) which is an essential aspect of Accelerated, Experiential, Dynamic Psychotherapy developed by Diana Fosha will be explored. MET is a process of therapy in which the experience of being in a therapeutic relationship becomes the focus inquiry which allows for a deeper and broader therapeutic experience. The concepts of MET can be adapted into the treatment of trauma because it allows for the moment to moment tracking and exploration of phenomena associated with trauma as well as the examination of phenomenological aspects of affective transformation experiences that takes place in the treatment of trauma. Both of these are effective skills for the effective trauma treatment.

In addition MET also targets repairing relational pathology in providing a corrective emotional experience and explores previous attachment relationships to improve the quality of attachment to reach a felt sense of earned secure and a wider window of tolerance to be able to develop skills of auto-regulation. A wider window of tolerance allows the client to hold, be present, and aware of the intense emotional experience of complex trauma events without becoming dysregulated.

Outline for the training:
  • Understanding windows of tolerance to facilitate and regulate a client’s body based experiencing of emotion
  • Meta Therapeutic processing and moment to moment tracking in therapy
  • Meta Therapeutic processing of undoing aloneness of trauma.
  • Rapidly promoting the development of secure attachment relationship in therapy.
  • Identify the phenomenology of effective transformational experience
  • Target and repair relationship pathology
  • Integrating MET into your own practice skills
