Audience: By registration only


The seminar aims to present the multiple approaches to the art of psychotherapy following the basic psychodynamic and psychoanalytic theories. Based on the material that will be presented each time by one of the participants, the psychoanalyst Dr. Athanasios Alexandridis will highlight the main points of psychopathology and will attempt the general reconstruction of the history of the child, his family, traumas and deficits. Within this framework, the most appropriate technique for the treatment of the child, the adolescent and the family will be examined. The seminar will be based on active dialogue between the instructor and the participants. Its goal is the connection of theory and technique, concepts unfortunately often presented as disconnected from each other, while in reality they form an indivisible system.
