Understanding Infantilism & The ABDL (Adult Baby Diaper Lover) Community.

Working with clients who are a part of the ABDL community can be difficult when there is little clinical information/training on infantilism.  People within this community often struggle with feeling marginalized within the larger kink communities, and then struggle additionally with finding a knowledgeable and kink-positive therapist who can help them and their partner(s) understand their desires and how they fit within the larger context of their lives.

This lecture/discussion will highlight basic knowledge about the topic of infantilism and discuss clinical implications for individual and couples therapy.

Presenter: Laura Grimes, LCSW

Lifeworks G-3DEVELOPING YOUR IDENTITY AS A THERAPIST

Many clinicians are eager to get into practice and start seeing clients but find that they want or need to further integrate their clinical skills, understanding and inner  attitudes toward being a therapist in order to become effective, compassionate and confident practitioners.  This group welcomes clinicians who are finding their way as therapists and want a supportive setting to:

  • develop a personal therapeutic identity  that accesses and utilizes your unique strengths and inner resources in the therapy session
  • practice and embrace helpful inner attitudes or metaskills
  • explore specific questions, growth edges or challenging situations
  • learn to self-supervise in sessions

In a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, Rami Henrich & Cindy Trawinski provide a learning laboratory for participants to study and collaborate on clinical questions together, learning from one another and clients.

Sessions include both experiential and didactic approaches, using  participants’ questions and clinical experiences and drawing on Process Work (process-oriented psychology) concepts and methods, Imago Relationship techniques and mindfulness practices.

The group meets Fridays afternoons, in 8 week blocks.

JUNGIAN SUPERVISION GROUP
Jung’s pivotal perspectives on the human psyche has brought a watershed of insights, theory and technique to psychotherapy, the arts and the media.  This group offers those with a basic understanding of Jung’s work a chance to deepen the application of his theory and methods in their clinical work.

Participants in this group will:

    • Explore and apply Jung’s central concepts and methods for working with individual clients to clinical material
    • Focus on how to formulate a case from a Jungian point of view
    • Delve into the theoretical and experiential aspects of transformation
    • Study key phenomena including complexes, dreams, myths and transference reactions and learn how to work with them in the psychotherapy hour
    • Examine countertransference influences in their work

Pat Cochran, Psy.D., is an Jungian analyst who has been studying and using Jungian approaches in her private practice for over 20 years.  She is a cogent teacher, insightful supervisor, encouraging role model and compassionate traveler on the journey to her own individuation.

This group meets on alternate Fridays from 3 to 4:30 pm.

For more information on Jungian supervision or to set up a time to talk to Pat about joining this group, call 847-568-1100 or email [email protected]
