The seminar is for all disciplines and professions working with children, adolescents, and families.
The seminar is both for clinicians and persons in disciplines and professions working directly with children, adolescents, and families. As such it is suitable for psychotherapists and psychoanalysts, but also for clinical psychologists, child psychiatrists, outpatient nurses, paediatricians, family psychotherapists, workers in neonatal wards, teams on wards caring for children and adolescents, social workers, educators, defectologists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, school psychologists, pedagogists, forensic scientists, and expert witnesses.
The aim of the seminar is to understand complex conscious and unconscious processes occurring among patients (clients), clinicians (experts), and institutions hosting this practice. Understanding each of these processes individually, but also in the moment of interaction, allows clinicians and other experts to understand various levels on which the relation with the patients (clients) is being established. Bottom line, a deeper thinking about those intersected processes will determine also the understanding of a success or a failure of a given intervention.
The participants will have an opportunity to present a detailed observational material of their own work in front of a small group. The seminars will take place once a week on Zoom in the duration of 80 minutes. Two seminar groups will be formed, each with max. 5 participants.
