Connection: Our Deepest Longing and Our Greatest Fear

Friday, February 16, 6:30pm – 8:30pm (This presentation is open to the public.)

Who among us does not want to feel connected to others? It is hardwired in us as humans to long for closeness. Unfortunately, life experiences have made it hard to create and sustain connection to ourselves and to those we care about. As a result, many of us feel isolated and alone. Dr. Heller is a seasoned therapist and educator, and in this seminar he offers the keys to working through low self-esteem and relational trauma. He unlocks the world of true aliveness in our beings and the world of fulfilling and satisfying relationships.

When Therapists Get Stuck: Using NARM to Understand Therapists’ Own Emotional Themes that may Disrupt the Therapeutic Process

Saturday, February 17, 8:30am – 4:30pm

This event will take place on Saturday, February 17, 2018 and is open to psychotherapists and related helping professionals. “As therapists, it is very important for us to understand our own motivation to be in this profession. Two of the main roadblocks to more effective and ethical therapy that I have seen in the many thousands of supervisions that I have given over the years are the need to compulsively caretake, and the tendency to take on too much responsibility for the therapeutic process. These countertransference dynamics are, at least in part, the result of our own unresolved issues”.

In this seminar, we will explore these and other dynamics that create unnecessary stress for ourselves and limit our effectiveness.
