Overview Who is it for? About the speaker Overview Who is it for? About the speaker Overview In this early evening online lecture, Dr Tamara Feldman will present her thinking on the moral dimension of psychotherapy, especially in the context of couples therapy where questions of morality are paramount. She proposes that this moral dimension involves questions of fairness, equity and justice, which are often central to the couple’s presenting complaints in treatment. In Feldman’s view moral considerations are not only inevitable but are potentially beneficial to the therapeutic work, informing the therapist’s thinking and interventions. She argues that questions of morality should be considered alongside the therapist’s preferred clinical theory, complimenting rather than competing with explorations of the couple’s experiences and needs. This can be accomplished through a framework of multiplicity, where at times the therapist explores a partner’s needs, vulnerabilities and feelings, and at other times highlights mutual obligations, equity and fairness. Feldman’s lecture will include clinical vignettes to illustrate her thinking, and there will be the opportunity for attendees to ask questions about the ideas presented. Who is it for? Attendees should be qualified and practising individual, group, family or couple psychotherapists or counsellors, or those who are currently training in these fields.
