8 Weeks of Discovering Possibilities of Caring Well

About the Event

Contrasting Differing Ideologies and Practices of Therapeutic Care Across the Helping Professions.

Clinical Psychologist Dr. Todd DuBose will explore during an eight-week online course two contrasting ideologies and practices of therapeutic care: deficit-correction and collaborative-understanding.

Our journey will take us together through the atmospherics and optics of our global and interpersonal world of cultures and practices of care, and “difficult conversations,” towards the possibilities of caring well.

Discover how more familiar orientations of cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamics, systems, and existential-hermeneutical-phenomenological “cultures of care” live out one or both of these two models of care.

Explore how this occurs in concrete clinical situations and Explore what implications these two models have for how we understand the self, illness or suffering, therapeutic intervention and process, and “the good life.”

Explore our own ideologies and cultures of care as disclosed in how we care for others and are cared for by others.

Examine whether an integrative model is possible given apparent irreconcilable ideologies and lived values of these two models including explore how this dilemma shows itself in other disciplines of care and interprofessional circles.

Learning objectives:

By the end of the event, participants will be able to:

Identify similarities and differences between the lived values associated with two models of therapeutic care across disciplines: Deficit-Correction and Collaborative-Understanding

Identify different ideologies embedded in these different practices regarding conceptualizations of the self, illness or suffering, therapeutic intervention and process, and “the good life”.

Identify one’s own lived values and ideologies as disclosed in how one cares for others in various situations.

Identify these values in practices of care in unsuspected places beyond therapeutic care proper (e.g., parenting, education, law, business, and other service institutions).
