We are happy to announce that Allan Abbass and Leslie Greenberg will take on the online stage and present their models of change and discuss similarities and differences between the models. What exactly facilitates change during a therapeutic process? How are the main mechanisms of such changes understood in theory and displayed in practice? Are there similarities in the processes that occur between the clinician and client, and the processes that occur within the client, when there are positive outcomes in therapy?
Allan Abbass is specialized, and has contributed to a vast amount of research focused on, Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). He is a professor, psychiatrist, basketball fan and player, author and founding Director of the Centre for Emotions and Health at Dalhouse University in Halifax, Nova Scotioa, Canada. Allan has a warmth and a love for strangers and strange people like no one we’ve ever met.
Leslie Greenberg is the founding father of Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT). His research addresses questions regarding empathy, psychotherapy processes, the therapeutic alliance, and emotion in human functioning. He is a psychologist, engineer, author, professor emeritus at York University in Toronto, and also the director of the Emotion-Focused Therapy Clinic in Toronto. He has the most curious and playful character you can imagine, with the looks of Santa Claus himself.
Jan Reidar Stiegler, clinical psychologist, shame-researcher and academic director of IPR Bergen and of The Norwegian Institute of Emotion-Focused Therapy, will guide Les & Allan and the audience through the discussion at the end of the workshop.
