Please Note: This course is presented in English and is verbally translated into German during the presentation. The workshop focuses on the process of co-building a working alliance. We discuss some main features of the therapeutic relationship: the structure of communication and the emotional, mental, physical space of the treatment. We see how to deal with: the daily management of time, requests, money the dynamics of empathy and neutrality the deep movements stirred up by the use needles the expression of hidden or violent emotions the yin attitude of “being there” We work with illnesses and suffering, it is a delicate matter. The encounter of patient and practitioner requires a specific attention. To improve therapeutic results we need not to be submerged by what takes place inside the relationship. The classics give a great attention to it – quotations will be discussed in the workshop. Clinical cases are given throughout all the issues.
