The encounter with the patient: sparkles and traps
The workshop/webinar is meant both for experienced colleagues and for beginners
We work with illnesses and suffering, it is a delicate matter: the encounter of patient and practitioner requires a specific attention.
The Classics have given great attention to it – quotations will be discussed in the seminar.
The workshop focuses on the process of co-building a working alliance and discusses some main features of the therapeutic relationship to improve therapeutic results:
emotional, mental, physical space of the treatment
management of time, requests, money, third parties
dynamics of transference, empathy, neutrality
perceiving qi and working with different patients
clinical interview: use silence and words
facing deep emotional movements stirred up by needles
yin attitude in treatment
changing dysfunctional habits
practitioners’ needs/motivations in choosing their profession
The workshop is based on clinical cases and problem solving training method.
