Integrative Model of Psychotherapy for Personality Disorders

Dr Lisa Cohen

5th August, 23
1100hrs (AEST)

There is today a veritable smorgasbord of psychotherapeutic treatments available, leaving the clinician at a loss to know how to select the appropriate treatment for each patient. In response, clinicians tend to either pick one model and stick to it religiously, like the Hindu parable of the blind men and the elephant, or develop a grab bag approach with no unifying explanatory framework to guide their choices. Emergent Systems Theory is an integrative model that addresses the issues of differential diagnosis and treatment selection from a neuro-evolutionary framework. In this webinar, from the vantage point of Emergent Systems Theory, Dr. Cohen will explore common types of clinical presentations and treatment approaches, with an emphasis on personality disorders.

Ethical Responsibilities & Liabilities in Supervision – What Every Supervisor Need To Know

Dr Kris Rao

15 August, 23
6.30 p.m (AEDT)

Supervision has a crucial role in protecting clients, practitioners, and the profession. Supervision directly impacts practice fundamentals (such as informed consent and risk mitigation), therapeutic interactions (such as responding to cultural challenges, multiple relationships, defences, and transference/countertransference), safety (client and therapist vulnerabilities), and compliance confidence (confidentiality, privacy, record management, and disclosure). This webinar helps supervisors understand their ethical responsibilities and legal liabilities in an Australian and New Zealand context.


Trauma, Attachment & Somatization.

Dr Joan Haliburn

26th August, 23
1100hrs (AEDT)

There is overwhelming evidence to show that early trauma disrupts the normal integrity of Self and that constant thwarting of the infant’s biological propensity to attach to a caregiver gives rise to a traumatic attachment – varying from insecure to disorganised. Somatisation has been described as an adaptive psychophysiological response to trauma where there is repeated threat of inescapable physical injury, the symptoms of which cannot be explained medically, or may accompany other psychiatric disorders such as severe depression and anxiety. Somatisation involves dissociation when cumulative experiences of chronic devaluation, emotional neglect, physical and/or sexual abuse compound its complexity. In this webinar, Dr Joan Haliburn will discuss the relationships between early trauma and somatisation. She will also provide a brief historical over-view, the changes in DSM-5 leading to its being renamed, Somatic Symptom Disorder, and in more depth, the principles of psychotherapy relating to a case of Somatization Disorder.

Featured On-demand Webinars

Dr Nick Bendit on Trauma and Memory Systems

Dr Nick Bendit

In the webinar Dr. Nick Bendit will provide some didactic information about suicidality, and then explore why patients become suicidal, and what the function of suicidal thoughts and urges are. Dr. Bendit will develop a general psychodynamic hypothesis about the origins of suicidal thoughts, and the relationship between deliberate self harm and suicidal thoughts. He will then differentiate between acute suicidality and chronic suicidality, and briefly outline the different treatment needs of each group. Dr. Bendit will also discuss how the fear of suicide structures the therapy, and influences the therapist’s response. Finally, some important prevailing myths about suicide prediction, assessment and prevention will be described.

Vulnerability & Grandiosity: Related forms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Dr Joan Haliburn

‘SELF’ and ‘SELF AND OTHER’ are inseparable – whether in early development, or in the psychotherapeutic relationship. Developmental Theory is a Relational Theory and forms the basis of most psychodynamic psychotherapies. The term narcissism is most often regarded as a triad of vanity, exhibitionism and arrogant ingratitude, but it also needs to be seen as a state of developmental arrest, vulnerability, where the sense of SELF lacks sufficient inner resources to give meaning to life, simply through living it fully. The role of relational trauma needs to also be understood in the precocious attainment of autonomy, early idealization and identification with the other, seen in the developmental psychopathology of some narcissistic personality disorders. They occur on a spectrum and cannot all be lumped together. We must develop this understanding in the psychotherapy of Narcissistic Personality Disorders.

Engaging Men in Therapy: What the Literature Says (Free Webinar).

Zern Liew

Men and boys represent 50% of the population who may be overlooked by the therapy industry. The APA released their first ever guidelines for working with men and boys in 2019 – not even five years ago. The level of psychological distress experienced by men appears to be increasing. Suicide levels remain unacceptably high. Men appear less willing to engage with health practitioners. This is especially so when it comes to mental health services. Most practitioners are women. It is not unusual to encounter those who believe that men are alexithymic and uncooperative clients. Men harbour fears, misinformation, and unhelpful beliefs about therapy. This webinar presents what the literature says about men and therapy. Understanding how men cope and seek help is important for practitioners who are serious about serving this population.

This course will provide you with the opportunity to explore the ethical and moral issues that arise when working as a professional in a therapeutic context. We will explore the myriad complexities and contradictions associated with ethics, morals, legal and professional responses and responsibilities in the professional setting. Special attention will be given to the cultural and socio-political factors that frame ethical behaviour and moral decision-making and what impact these factors have when working with clients. Professional and legal standards for therapists in practice will be identified and implications for professional practice determined.
