May 1st – 8th, 2022

Pieve Tesino (Italy)

Towards a Field Based Clinical Practice

The residential workshop is a yearly international group, both theoretical and experiential. It addresses psychopathology from the field theory perspective and it is led by the three directors together. From theoretical stimuli, dialogue and experiential work, we explore the growing edges of our understanding of human suffering and growth, in order to support the development of a Field Based Clinical Practice.

In the morning we work all together stimulated by inputs from the trainers, in the afternoon we work in three subgroups, each with a trainer and a different focus: supervision, personal work, and development of therapeutic competences. The personal resonances related to psychopathology are explored in order to increase the awareness and the ground of the participants. Supervision and discussion of clinical cases are a central part of the methodology, in order to link the theoretical understanding with both personal experiences and professional competences.

The schedule offers the possibility to slow down and pause, to enjoy personal meetings with colleagues from all over the world, to explore the silence and the nature, to appreciate the beauty of the Italian landscapes and cuisine.

Addressed to: psychotherapists, psychologists and psychiatrists with clinical experience and basic training in psychopathology.
