Identity-oriented Psychotraumatheory and -therapy (IoPT) in One-to-One Sessions
A one-to-one session with a client needs a different setting than a group session does. In this case the IoPT-Method is applied in a different way. The differences in a one-to-one session are necessary because there are no other persons available to interact besides the client and the therapist.
Within a one-to-one session the focus is on bilateral interaction. In order to build up a deep relationship between client and therapist the therapist has to be able to be in a cleared up inner relation with himself (or herself) at first.
Within my workshop I would like to explain and show how the IoPT-Method can be applied in a one-to-one session and how the therapist can create a situation of stability and security for the client to support his/her therapeutic process.
