Emotion regulation – a vehicle of change in psychotherapy. April 13-15, 2018 / Warsaw
The last decades is a time of great research into the psychotherapy process. The research that allowed – apart from other discoveries – to understand the importance of emotions and their regulation in the context of both mental health and psychopathology.
We know today how the difficulty of regulating emotions is related to early and deep traumas, relationship disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, personality disorders, etc. We also know that the basis for deep and lasting therapeutic change is a corrective emotional experience in a patient’s relationship with a psychotherapist. That is why we want to devote our next international conference to issues related to the regulation of emotion. We have invited eminent representatives of contemporary psychotherapy who have dedicated most of their clinical and scientific work to issues of emotional experience, emotion regulation, and dynamics of change in psychotherapy.
For three days we will talk about what is conducive to changing and healing the patient.
This conference will make a change – we do hope to see you in Warsaw.
