Paradigm shift. It isn't a defense. Simple idea with complex ramifications
Clinicians are often still stuck in the definitions that they were taught in graduate school and other modalities of what a defense is and how it gets in the way of psychotherapeutic work. This workshop will help the clinician make the paradigm shift from defenses to the AIP perspective of maladaptive memory networks which protect other, more vulnerable, memory networks. By doing so, the clinician will have a stronger case conceptualization, and will be able to better build resiliency in their clients.
