Date and Time: April 23, 2021 - 9:00 am to 4:45 pm EST
Credits: 6 CEs
Location: Live on Zoom
We will consider new thinking about relational ethics to help clients reach for their best self in family relationships. Dr. Fishbane will focus on helping adult clients “grow up” their view of parents, and their relationships with them. The workshop will address the larger sociocultural context in which families are embedded, exploring stressors and resources that impact intergenerational relationships for better or worse. Theory and techniques will be offered to facilitate intergenerational repair where possible, focusing on ways to honor and care for parents while protecting and caring for one’s self. The format will include lecture, case examples, experiential exercises, and small group discussion. The emphasis will be on practical skills for clinicians to facilitate healing intergenerational wounds.
Her book, Loving with the Brain in Mind: Neurobiology & Couple Therapy, was published by Norton in 2013, as part of the Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology.
