At Our Last Meeting . . . 

At the Intersection of Depth Psychology & Self Care: An Alternate New Lens on Motivational Interviewing

Dr. Maxine Langdon Starr

Participants were able to further understand and have greater sophistication about the bridge between these three main ideas of Hermeneutics, Depth Psychology, and Self Care; and how these ideas inform the principles of Motivational Interviewing; which were expanded upon during the initial presentation and experienced in a workshop style discussion later on. This then impacted their overall professional growth in how they will interact with their clients and how they will reflect upon these concepts as they relate through their own development and experiential lenses.

Hermeneutics

  • Research methodology that encompasses “the art of understanding” (Thiselton, 2009, pp. 2-3).
  • Take into account the meaning(s) that one may assign to a text, voice passage, or in our case, therapy session and meaning(s) that a therapist may consciously and/or unconsciously assign to a client(s) narrative.

Depth Psychology

  • Began with Freud (of course) but Jung brought another layer of meaning to the discussion
  • Deals with the unconscious & what is not being said in treatment (both on part of client and especially therapist)
  • Uses principles outside the “typical” norm of therapy to inform the therapeutic process (e.g., myth, religion, spirituality, history, greater societal context(s))

Self-Care

  • No one understands that taking care of what cannot be seen (AKA not just from a medical, empirically scientific point of view) is a critical step in healthcare more than therapists do.
  • How much self-care are we doing for ourselves; and if we are not, then how can we expect our clients to be motivated for change?
  • “Motivational interviewing respects patient self-determination, acknowledges patient autonomy, and recognizes that it is the patient who must decide whether and how to change behaviors” (McCarthy, 2009, p. 413).
  • Developing a discrepancy between current behaviors & future goals is key to supporting client self-efficacy in improvement of self-care domains.

Motivational Interviewing

  • Originally conceived as a brief, evidence based therapy intervention
  • Recent research has focused on the spirit of motivational interviewing, which:

“Encourages subjective interpretation of how to emulate concepts such as partnership, acceptance, compassion, and evocation” (Crawford, J. I., 2016, p. 54).

  • Embedded within the definition of motivational interviewing is the goal to enhance motivation to change via resolution of ambivalence (Miller & Rollnick, 2013; as also stated in Crawford, J.I., 2016).
  • This grappling with ambivalence directly ties back into one of the primary conflicts (most likely unconscious) that many clients are presenting within the therapeutic context and may be unknowingly hindering their ability to meet their self-expressed goals.

Objectives:

  • 1. Understand at least 3 innovative ways that depth psychology, hermeneutics, and principles of self-care apply to motivational interviewing
  • 2. Apply at least 3 principles of hermeneutics as they relate to working with clients from a motivational interviewing perspective
  • 3. Apply at least 2 principles of depth psychology as they relate to working with clients from a motivational interviewing perspective
  • 4. Recognize at least 2 ways their own inner communication may influence communication in therapy and thus have some common threads to self-care and therapist personal development.

Bio:

Dr. Starr has been licensed since 2012 as an MFT in California. She received her Ph.D. in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2016. She has been in private practice since 2011, and specializes in working with adolescents, young adults, and women’s issues; including treating issues relating to self-care, self-esteem, and stress. She works full time within the school district’s Special Education Department as an Educationally Related Mental Health Therapist and is an adjunct professor at several universities in the Southern CA area teaching courses for future MFTs, and in programs of ABA, School Counseling, and School Psychology.

President's Message:

Now that we are reaching the end of the year, all of us hopefully enjoying our holidays with our families and friends, I wanted to take this moment and look back to this year and the many things that have been accomplished at IE-CAMFT.  

  • ·         We reached our goal of 200+ members.  As we grow, we are considering moving nearby to a bigger location to accommodate our growing membership.
  • ·         Our webmistress has revamped our website. She has done an amazing job. There are many features available for members and guests. Please check it out at www.ie-camft.org
  • ·         We have automated our seminar evaluations and certificates.  
  • ·         We have gone to a new payment processor that allows members and guests to pay with any credit card online, rather than having to have a PayPal account.
  • ·         We have had many diverse and interesting trainings.  These trainings offering anything from 2-CEU’s to 6-CEU’s help us as clinicians to stay on the pulse of the latest subject matter.  These trainings included: A Twin’s Dialectic: Being Noticed or Being Known; Law and Ethics: Tough calls, moral dilemmas, technology and more; How do I talk to my grieving client?  The stuff to know and the words not to use; Deep TMC and Beyond; Camft Update 2019, the State of the Profession; Mindful Choices for Well-Being; Music Therapy: A Binaural Frontier: the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music (GIM); Decoding Teens; Author’s Gathering; EMDR: healing unprocessed memories that create disturbance and dysfunction; and At the intersection of Depth Psychology and Self Care: An Alternative New Lens on Motivational Interviewing.   We hope you were able to attend many of our trainings.  We look forward to presenting more stimulating seminars in 2020.
  • ·         We expanded our marketing strategies to include a YouTube channel in addition to visiting local colleges, other events, video interviews with our presenters, and continued posting on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.  

Enjoy the Holidays, we look forward to seeing you next year at our next training on January 28, 2020: Understanding Current Trends in Modern Parenting and the Implications for Children and Families Seeking Therapy.
