International seminar with
JUNE 8-9, 2018Archeological Museum – Conference Hall
Siracuse – Italy
Recent international researches have studied non verbal processes which characterize the good therapeutic alliance. They have found that psychotherapy works well when it supports tendency of the partners to synchronize their languages (words, gestures, bodily movements, voice tone, etc.). Attention to synchronization becomes even more important in treatment of seriously disturbed patients (personality disorders, psychosis, etc.), when verbal language is not sufficient to mediate the therapeutic relationship. The seminar will deal with synchronization in primary relationships,healthy and suffering development, and therapeutic relationship.
The seminar will include clinical dialogues in the mornings and experiential moments in the afternoons.

It has been a good occasion for some trainers to meet after many years, like in this picture with Jean Marie Robine, Bertram Mueller, Michael Vincent Miller and Margherita Spagnuolo Lobb
