This paper is an auto-ethnographic revision (Ellis, 2009) of a psychotherapy case study. The client and therapist discussed their work together five years on, reflecting on post-therapy growth and aspects of the therapeutic relationship. The process of revision opened up new avenues for reflective inquiry.
Saturday June 9th: 10am-4pm day (6 hours of CPD)
Male fragility is often overlooked by contemporary discourses on gender and identity. How do we work with men when we care about providing gender-sensitive psychotherapy ?
- explores how power/status, embodiment and the erotic become manifest in the therapy room
- looks at clinical stories which illustrate issues that are commonly encountered by female clinicians working with men
- examines approaches to building a working alliance with male clients, working at relational edge and supporting in-depth exploration of men’s concerns.
