1 Psychotherapy Today: What s Wrong? 3 Issues 3 Solutions

2 Psychotherapy Today: What s Wrong? Issue #1 The De-humanization of Therapy

3 The Medical Model Systematized Routinized Manualized

4 Our field struggles with the notion that treatments work like medicine. It s as if people coming to therapy have a variety of infections that different psychotherapy models will attack like antibiotics. But the truth is that there isn t any evidence that one therapeutic method achieves better results than any other. Scott Miller, Ph.D., International Center for Clinical Excellence

5 We can t simply follow a protocol. Research indicates that the frequency and severity of ruptures [in the therapeutic alliance] increased with rigid adherence to a treatment manual and an excessive number of transference interpretations. (John Norcross, 2010)

6 Solution #1: We have to be human. The deliver system is not an IV or pill It s the relationship.

7 Psychotherapy Today: What s Wrong? Issue #2 The Negativity Bias

8 The Brain s Negativity Bias AS our ancestors evolved, sticks generally had more urgency and impact than carrots. As a major feature of the brain: 1. We scan for bad news. 2. Over-focus on it, losing sight of the whole. 3. Over-react to it 4. Install it rapidly into implicit memory 5. Sensitize the brain to the negative 6. Create vicious cycles Rick Hanson, Ph.D., Pos. Neuroplasticity Training

9 Conditions for learning: Activation PLUS Installation Psychotherapy is notoriously poor at installing.

10 We can t let the negativity bias strangle our effectiveness Glass half empty Neurons that fire together wire together. If our brains are wired to scan for bad news.how does that affect what we react to in session with our clients?

11 Solution #2: We have to be resource rich. We need to activate, absorb, and install beneficial experiences for ourselves..

12 Psychotherapy Today: What s Wrong? Issue #3 Insight and Psychoeducation emphasis

13 The CBT Myth 2012 from Sweden s National Board of Health and Welfare, which, after placing CBT at the top of a list of recommended treatments for depression and anxiety, concluded after a two-year trial period that CBT had no noticeable advantage over alternative therapies and that increasing numbers of clients were dropping out of treatment after finding it ineffective. Psychotherapy Networker Nov/Dec 2015 Because the experiential system is largely unconscious and nonverbal, it is very difficult to change a learned pattern through conscious, verbal reasoning alone. Courtney Armstrong, LPC

14 Rational Brain vs. Emotional Brain Rational = 5% Emotional = 95% Illustration courtesy of NIMH

15 We can t suppress default mode processing and forget about creativity. More opportunities should be provided for developing minds and brains to spontaneously experience default-mode processing. Learning environments could be designed to enhance and/or maintain relevant default network activity despite existing external task demands. Frontier Human Neuroscience, August 2014

16 Solution #3: We have to create sensory rich experiences. The key is to create conditions that facilitate an experience that changes the implicit meaning and purpose associated with an emotional pattern.
