"Empathically Attuned Caregiver Mode in the Treatment Room" 

An interview with Wendy Behary, a keynote speaker at INSPIRE 2016 in Vienna

Wendy Behary will be featured as a keynote speaker this summer in Vienna, and in an interview with Travis Atkinson, she gives us a "sneak peak" of key elements of her address:

  • Why is the "empathic stance" the most critical part of a schema therapist's posture in the treatment room?
  • What is the difference between expressing sympathy or compassion with a client/patient compared to empathic resonance?
  • Does empathy differ in more challenging cases, such as treating a narcissist or a challenging couple?
  • What can get in the way of a therapist being able to stay in an "empathically attuned caregiver mode?"  

Wendy answers these questions and more, previewing her keynote address. Watch her describe working in the "empathically attuned caregiver mode," and listen for examples that you can use in your work as a schema therapist. Visit: EMPATHICALLY ATTUNED MODE
