What do you do when your client spends each session talking about their dark feelings, and you feel stuck, not sure about how to help them heal? How can you help them progress? In this recorded webinar, Psychotherapy.net’s founder Victor Yalom consults with Laura, a clinician who feels stuck and disconnected from a young, depressed client. Through role-play and discussion Yalom demonstrates techniques for breaking the cycle of talking about dark emotions in sessions and instead feeling them, which can lead to insight and foster growth.

With over 30 years of experience doing therapy, learning from the masters, and creating clinical training videos, Yalom knows that becoming an effective therapist requires watching other skilled clinicians at work. By watching him use process comments, modelling, and role-play techniques, you will deepen your own clinical efficacy and be better equipped to help unstick clients who are stuck in despair.
