BT12 Keynote 03 Remarkable Acts of Change From Theory to Practice Harriet Lerner, PhD
Dr. Lerner will offer clinical examples of how she uses straightforward “coaching” that invites clients, in relatively few sessions, to experiment with bold acts of change that can change everything. She will outline the theoretical perspective that guides this work, and share her personal experience with systems- based remarkable acts of change.
- Describe the concept of “differentiation of self” in systems theory as can be applied to the “coaching” process in brief psychotherapy.
- Explain how a multigenerational perspective can enhance the therapist’s ability to facilitate change in brief psychotherapy.
