Course
10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Ann Martin Center, East Bay

The centerpiece of this two-meeting course will be the viewing and analysis of a video of a supervision session conducted by Dr. Sarnat and videotaped at the American Psychological Association’s film studio. (Relational Psychodynamic Supervision, APA, 2016).

In the first meeting, we will view the video, tracking the supervisor's struggles as she tries to “teach” the supervisee, but with limited supervisee learning taking place.

In the second meeting, we will discuss selected chapters from Dr. Sarnat’s most recent book, Supervision Essentials for Psychodynamic Psychotherapies (APA, 2016).

May 2018

Course
9:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Dream Institute of Northern California, East Bay

Traffic on the royal road has thinned in recent years; clinicians may complete training with little exposure to dream studies or methods of working with them. But clients still dream, and this program will enable clinicians to engage with them fruitfully.

Sample dreams will highlight diagnostic and transferential information in initial dreams. Common symbols of the self — house and car — will be discussed for their psychodynamic implications. Dream markers correlated with trauma, borderline, suicide risk, and breakdown will be noted. We will identify core conflicts and internal resources, translating dream images into metaphoric language usable in ongoing treatment.
