Psychodynamic psychotherapy, in its transformation of neurotic patterns through exploring and understanding the nature of the self and the self in relation to the “other”, has more in common with a spiritual endeavor than do most other forms of psychotherapy. This workshop will demonstrate how a spiritual framework in the mind of the therapist can open possibilities for positive change, growth and integration that might not otherwise occur. Theoretical perspectives and case material will be used to illustrate how an integration of psychodynamic and spiritual lenses can enrich treatment and help overcome therapeutic impasses. Psychodynamic concepts such as resistance and projective identification will be viewed from an integrated psycho-spiritual perspective. In the last segment of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to bring up their own cases for discussion.

Learning Objectives: After attending the presentation, participants will be able to
– Describe the convergence of the psychodynamic emphasis on unconscious processes and the spiritual emphasis on an “unseen reality.”
– Explain how a spiritual framework in the mind of the therapist can enhance and deepen psychotherapeutic work, and open possibilities for transforming limiting patterns.
– Describe concepts such as resistance and projective identification from a spiritual framework.
