OSP is proud to present

Presented by L. Rex Kay MD FRCPC

Date: October 19, 2014 - 10:30 am -1:30 pm
Location: Villa Columbo, Caboto Hall, 40 Playfair Avenue, Toronto, ON


In this workshop we will talk about two apparently different ideas, then bring them together. First, we will talk about a vision of adolescence as a journey away from and then back towards the arc of a life, and explore ways that perspective affects parenting and therapy. Then we will introduce a narratival approach to psychotherapy, in which stories are passed between two people, with the goal of stimulating a creative process in our patients and clients. Finally, we will look at how these two ways of seeing adolescence and therapy come together. This workshop will maintain a clinical focus, and there will be time to discuss these ideas as a group, and explore clinical vignettes.
