Psychotherapy Networker Symposium by Marlene Best & Susan Johnson
Since advances in neuroscience and attachment theory have led to an increasing appreciation of the centrality of emotions in human relationships, it’s ironic that therapists are so often intimidated by the raw power of clients’ feelings. This workshop will guide you through the process of helping clients tap into their deepest emotional reserves as a positive force for shaping growth and transformation. Through exercises and viewing sessions of Emotionally Focused Therapy, you’ll develop skills to use in therapy.

More information about Medical:
Medicine is the science and practice of establishing the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness.
Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease,
typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics, and ionizing radiation, amongst others.
Medicine has been around for thousands of years, during most of which it was an art (an area of skill and knowledge) frequently having connections to the religious and
philosophical beliefs of local culture. For example, a medicine man would apply herbs and say prayers for healing, or an ancient philosopher and physician would apply bloodletting according to the theories of humorism.
In recent centuries, since the advent of modern science, most medicine has become a combination of art and science (both basic and applied, under the umbrella of medical science).
While stitching technique for sutures is an art learned through practice, the knowledge of what happens at the cellular and molecular level in the tissues being stitched arises through science.
