The Mask of Self-Deception

June 23 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm
The Insight Center, 1404 Greenfield Ave.
Los Angeles,CA90025

Imagination is central to the art of psychotherapy and is hard-wired into our very neurons. Imagination lies at the heart of empathy and is a major force in change. Imagination underlies the positive experiences of vision, expectation, hope, and fantasy in therapists and patients alike. But imagination gone amok also lies at the heart of catastrophic vision, chronic anxiety, projection, delusion, and self-deception. This course uses interpersonal neurobiology as a framework to understand how imagination develops and evolves throughout life from early parent-child interactions and pretend play.

The Insight Center, 1404 Greenfield Ave.
Los Angeles,CA90025

In spite of the best intentions, adults tend to repeat the very injuries with their partners that they themselves experienced as children. When intense conflicts arise over seemingly insignificant things, they are really tender spots from childhood that resurface in the relationship. These baffling conversations may happen over and over because their underlying themes are elusive. This workshop is reparative, healing current emotional wounds within and between family members. It attends to intrapsychic injuries from childhood promoting adult maturation and more harmonious relationships.
