“What would you have said to the client in this situation?” is a question that delegates often ask the speaker when attending training sessions hosted at nscience. While, as therapists, we can learn a lot from exposition and case illustrations, our learning can be significantly enhanced if we were to have the opportunity to watch senior clinicians and experts in their therapy sessions with clients – we can observe how they manage the narrative, how they respond to complex situations, what overall approach they follow and their individual format for therapeutic interactions.

Full Course Information

With this approach in mind, we’ve launched the Therapy Session Masterclass (TSM) Series – a regular programme of evening sessions (each of which can be individually attended as a stand-alone event), moderated and led by Dr Jan McGregor Hepburn, where we will be inviting leading experts in Psychotherapy & Counselling – to let us observe them in clinical settings. Each of the sessions will have dedicated time for a demo therapy session (either video recorded or a live role-play), which will be followed by moderated interactions with delegates. Not only will delegates have the opportunity to see the invited experts in clinical settings but will also have a chance to quiz the expert on their style of working.

As participants, we can also bring our own brief case vignettes that may be related to the topic at hand. A selection of these will be discussed by Kathleen & Jan.

For the first session (TSM 1) which is an online webinar on 18 Nov 2021, our invited guest is Kathleen Mates-Youngman, author of best-selling Couples Therapy Workbook: 30 Guided Conversations to Re-Connect Couples. The live role-play will feature an interaction with a client who is attending the session on her / his own without their partner. The therapist will be called upon to ‘piece together’ a narrative for Couple Therapy without having the opportunity to meet / talk with the partner. This is a dilemma we often face in our therapeutic interactions and at the session, we will be able to observe how Kathleen navigates the challenge.

In the interactive section, Kathleen will be able to address cases that we may have covering a wide gamut of couple therapy challenges ranging from conflict to infidelity.
