Introduction to Affect Phobia in Online Therapy
We will examine the powerful influences of affect in the lives of our patients AND ourselves, and focus on the critical interplay between the two, including how working with emotion in online therapy profoundly impacts the therapist and the therapeutic alliance.

A major intent of this workshop is to explore the emotions of the therapist as they are engaged in the process of psychotherapy. Most therapists, even master therapists, activate their own ‘affect phobias’ in session. What emotional conflicts do you activate in session? Are you able to use your emotions to guide your work? Do they ever get in the way of treatment? Do they ever help in treatment?


Learning objectives for this 1-hour seminar include:
• To learn practical & important concepts of Affect Phobia
• To use the cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic & experiential techniques of Affect Phobia Therapy to assess & address emotional conflicts & thus improve therapeutic prowess, regardless of primary theoretical orientation.
• To learn to assess our own emotional conflicts that routinely arise in our work with our patients
• Increase comfort with your own emotional responses.
