For more than three decades, the Networker Symposium has been celebrated as something much more than a professional conference. Nowhere else will you find a gathering with more range and excitement, with more chances to meet other kindred spirits who understand the daily challenges of your work—people who get the same jokes and grouse about the same gripes, who are seeking the answers to the same questions, who, somehow, seem to belong to the same tribe. So welcome to the 2013 Networker Symposium recording, psychotherapy’s most enlivening tribal gathering.

Ironically, for a field so focused on dealing with the emotional life, we psychotherapists are often intimidated by the raw power of clients’ feelings. All too frequently, we try to bypass or contain emotion, rather than actively using it for change. This recording will teach you how to utilize clients’ deepest emotional reserves as a positive force for shaping growth and transformation. You’ll learn to identify and differentiate between primary emotions (deep feelings that expose our vulnerability, leading us to conceal them for self-protection) and secondary emotions (the defensive emotional wall we create around ourselves, precisely so others won’t detect the easily triggered emotions within). We’ll then explore specific techniques and strategies to help clients begin to break down those defensive walls and become less fearful of displaying vulnerability and gaining access to primary emotions. Through case histories and discussion, you’ll gather insights into how this corrective emotional process works, step by step.
