Seemed like the Right Call at the Time … Good Intuition or Bad Judgment?

February 27, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Insight Center, 1404 Greenfield Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90025

A workshop with Terry Marks-Tarlow, Ph.D. Use this link to register. Tuition is $165. Clinical intuition is central to every clinician’s repertoire and lies at the heart of effective psychotherapy.

Los Angeles, CA 90025

Beyond Safety into Play An Interpersonal Neurobiological Model for Stimulating Growth During Psychotherapy with Terry Marks-Tarlow, Ph.D. During psychotherapy, trauma resolution is important for bringing patients back to safety, but it is the play side of what we do that brings out their full potential for growth. The role of positive emotions, intrinsic motivation and a playful attitude gets overlooked all too often. Yet we can easily see the importance of play during early development for every dimension of being.…

Wacky World of Fractals

February 25, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Insight Center, 1404 Greenfield Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90025

Psychotherapy is about perceiving and changing personal, interpersonal or intergenerational patterns. Patterns exist both in nature and in human nature, and our brains are designed to be pattern makers. But where do these patterns come from and what is the deepest most useful level of drawing connections? This seminar is all about fractals: perhaps the most universal pattern of patterns in nature. Fractal patterns extend across mind, body, brain, soul, world, and relationships.

The Insight Center, 1404 Greenfield Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90025

We often hear clients say that they feel like their body was hijacked in the face of a triggering event. They can’t think, their nervous system seems to have a mind of its own. They loose their sense of home with their sense of self compromised. Mindfulness and somatic awareness practices can be key factors in returning to a secure experience of their felt-sense, a return home to safety.

Voice Dialogue gives us a map and an experiential method of learning about these selves, embrace them and integrate them – giving us a sense of wholeness and well being.  It is a unique and powerful blend of attachment theory, Depth therapy and Family Systems work.

Voice Dialogue emphasizes three aspects of consciousness. The person who is the Client is asked to embody and give voice to any and all aspects of the mind/body/soul that desires expression. The facilitator mirrors this expression and holds a presence with warm curiosity. The group serves as the Container holding a sacred space as they witness the moment-to-moment unfolding of this unique experience of self.

The Parenting Process 2018-1

May 5 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Insight Center, 1404 Greenfield Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90025

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.

The Mask of Self-Deception

June 23 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm
The Insight Center, 1404 Greenfield Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90025

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.
