Afternoon Session “Healing the Healer”
George Dubie, M Div, MS Licensed Psychologist. CEO, Greater Minnesota Family Services
• PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT: Help each participant better understand the core of his or her own personality development, and how the personality development of the practitioner has a large impact on his/her service to clients.
• PARALLEL PROCESS: Examine how unresolved personal issues in the practitioner’s life (which can be a part of our natural tendency to deny or avoid our own psychological issues) can impact the ‘parallel process’ between staff, clients and practitioner).
• EARLY PIONEERS IN REFLECTIVE PRACTICE: Identify the contributions early pioneers in the healing arts/human services made to the healing arts.
• BRAIN SYSTEMS IN PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT: Examine how brain-based systems are involved in the ‘personal process’ of the practitioner and the clients/staff we work with.
• DEVELOPMENTAL PRACTICE. By personally creating a more reflective practice that is inclusive of a psychodynamic ‘sense of self’ orientation; the practitioner will be more readily able to identify how their developmental history may be impacting the quality of service they provide to their clients and or staff.
• RELATIONSHIP BASED PRACTICE. The practitioners will understand how critical positive relationships are in their work environment; ones that are strong, supportive and safe. And in terms of a ‘strong sense of self’ in this type of practice, the practitioner will also realize how important it is to develop or deepen the personal/intimate relationships they have outside of work, to sustain positive, caring and helpful relationships with their clients.
• BROADENING OR PRACTICE. Participants will be able to add to their CBT practices a more comprehensive understanding of personality development. So, their clients and staff can better understand what the broader and deeper psychological issues in their lives are; and how these unresolved issues might be hindering clients and/or staff from making more long-term, lasting change (versus ‘the failure of will’ negativity which is often cited in CBT theory as the reason ‘goal setting’ objectives fail).
