Friday, February 3rd., 11:00am-5:00pmClick to see details of this event
In your individual or relational work, do you see clients struggle to authentically express their needs, wants, and desires, without operating from a space of blame, shame, or disconnection? How many of your clients deeply want to stay in connection during/after conflict, but don’t know how?
As a practitioner, are you ever uncomfortable sitting with a client’s anger towards you? Does it feel challenging to move through the repair process while maintaining your own boundaries? (Hello late cancellation policies…)
This presentation is for you.
Attendees can look forward to:
Overview of Claudia and Ed’s background and how they came to write the book together.
Outline the major themes of the book
Present a number of clinical cases that illustrate application of those themes.
Discussion/Q and A
Julianne Taylor Shore, LMFT, LPC, founder of IPNB Psychotherapy of Austin , will follow the presentation with a discussion of takeaways and insights that therapists and mental health professionals can utilize in their practice.
Meet the Presenters!

Juliane Taylor Shore, LPC-S, LMFT-S, SEP
“I became a therapist because I stumbled into a therapist’s office when I was in a hard space, fought with him for several months over whether or not feelings are important (I argued they were not), and found myself at the other end transformed. When I went to grad school, I quickly became interested in neurobiology and interpersonal neurobiology and have been studying it and eventually teaching it to other clinicians since 2006. I work with adults and couples from all different backgrounds and with different issues, though many come to me because I focus my work on trauma recovery and relational health. I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, an IFS therapist and I work with sand tray with many of the folx who come in to see me. ”
