CARING IN PSYCHOTHERAPY, A VIRTUAL TALK
Join us for another learning opportunity from our Ethos Training Institute Thought Leadership Series! In this complimentary virtual talk, Jon G. Allen, PhD., will differentiate caring from caregiving, explore the skill of responding to care, and guide you in nurturing your capacity to care. It’s an enlightening journey you can’t afford to miss!
About the Presenter:
Jon Allen advocates science informed humanism as a counterbalance to empirically supported treatments, challenging them as the standard for the practice of psychotherapy. In his previous work, he defined trust in psychotherapy as consisting of both care and competence. Currently, he is exploring the role of care in psychotherapy by merging philosophical literature on the Ethics of Care with relational psychoanalytic thinking.
About the Presentation:
This presentation differentiates between caring and caregiving, while also exploring responsiveness to care and the cultivation of a caring capacity. It places significant emphasis on the experiences of connection and disconnection within relationships, incorporating concepts from attachment theory and psychoanalysis, such as mentalizing, recognition, the third, and relational autonomy. Finally, it concludes by discussing the importance of human skills as a fundamental aspect of psychotherapy.
