Clinical Conference: Exploring Automatic Patterns: From the Family to the Workplace
May 14, 2021 at 9:30 am – 3:30 pm EDT| $95
Speaker: Kenton T. Derstine, MDiv, DMin
This conference will explore the idea that the effort for differentiation of self in one’s own family contributes to enhanced functioning in one’s work. Increasing one’s awareness of emotional and relationship patterns across one’s previous generations informs the effort to become a more connected and a more defined self in one’s family. This process can produce shifts in one’s functioning in family, a family’s functioning, as well as enhanced leadership effectiveness. Recordings of two clinical interviews will be shown to illustrate the interplay between the effort for differentiation of self in one’s family and in the workplace.
A maximum of 5 CEU/CEs are available.
