In the Murray Method, special emphasis is placed on the personal work of the health professional/student based on the belief that a therapist always must address his or her own issues first in order to be an effective clinician and a healthy role-model personally and professionally.
This workshop will provide behavioral health professionals with an introduction to The Murray Method and an integrated view of the effects of childhood trauma, abuse and deprivation on personality development.
The Murray Method is a theoretical model for understanding the effects of trauma, abuse and deprivation on individuals and families. The theory and treatment modalities will provide clinicians with basic concepts that will help them and their clients…
- Identify their emotional defense mechanisms, how to determine which are appropriate and which have been destructive, and how to begin to modify and/or eliminate those that are unhealthy
- Recognize and utilize the many ways in which they can appropriately access and release emotions connected to childhood and present-day pain
- Find the creative, feeling person they were created to be, and reclaim their original talents, abilities, and emotions
- Become an integrated person who is a mature, responsible, thinking adult but also is connected deeply with feelings— a person with healthy self-esteem
- Find balance intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and relationally
- Participants will also learn about therapeutic interventions for effective treatment of trauma-based mental health issues.
Sessions are conducted with time devoted to didactic instruction, experiential work, and small group participation each day.
The course will be conducted by Marilyn Murray, M.A., creator of The Murray Method.
CEUs will be available.
