Using case studies, the presenter will delve into “identity” as it is defined and understood for the participants in a therapeutic relationship. Webinar participants will learn about the development of a strategy to sort out the levels and layers of identity that occur in every therapeutic relationship. As the layers and levels of identity are highlighted, areas of alignment and misalignment are defined. Previously unknown areas of identity are articulated, such as societal, cultural, ethnic, familial, regional, and other points of reference with the discussion focusing on options for alignment, conflict resolution, clinical vulnerability, and previously unknown strengths available for the therapist and the client. The therapist and the client can experience the humility present in each contract for change.

Learning Objectives
  • Participants will experience a different strategy for establishing rapport and a working contract for change with clients.
  • Participants will experience personally and in observation the impact of this personal strategy for defining alignment in the change contract.
  • Participants will increase their own knowledge of their areas of counter-transferential vulnerability in their clinical work.
