Overview: 

Presenter Terry Marks-Tarlow, PhD, Licensed Psychologist, Author, Speaker, Artist

COURSE DESCRIPTION:  As psychotherapists, how do we know exactly what to do and say? Clinical intuition is indispensable to effective psychotherapy, yet the topic is rarely discussed within the current social politics of our field. This interactive workshop explores clinical intuition from multiple perspectives: 1) Its spontaneous emergence to fill the gap between theory and practice; 2) Its workings via bottom-up, implicit, nonconscious modes of communication; 2) Its evolutionary and developmental roots within mammalian limbic emotional and motivational circuits; 3) Its manifestation in the therapeutic dialogue through PLAY and the unconsciously orchestrated games that organize relational rhythms. Other topics include imagination, metaphor, creativity, and humor, as they spring from intuitive roots and in wisdom, the mature flowering of clinical intuition.  A didactic and experiential experience. 

ART EXHIBIT: Dr. Marks-Tarlow 's whimsical yet profound art will be on exhibit.  Her Books and Art will be available for purchase.
