Disconnected and Unreachable

Disconnected and Unreachable: How to Work with Shut-Down States of Mind

Saturday 20 June 2020 - London

A One-Day Exploration Led by Dr Anne Alvarez and Dr Graham Music

Working with someone who cannot respond to the connection to another offered by psychotherapy can be one of the most de-skilling experiences for practitioners. Being with long periods of silence, avoidance of eye-contact, difficulties in showing affect, purpose or even words can be enormously challenging and likely to evoke a very negative countertransference.
