Objectives:
1. Review the medical model of mental disorder and the constructivist model of psychological problems.
2. Learn the principles of conversational reframing.
 
Description:
Constructivism or Narrative Therapy is a major alternative to the medical model of mental disorders as epitomized in the American Psychiatric Association's DSM-5. Typically the DSM moves from a list of client behaviors to a statement of client condition. This dramatically changes the emotional expectations of the client. Conditions are seen as unchangeable, whereas there is always the possibility of changing behavior.  This is true even when the behavior, which is driven by emotion, does not seem to be volitional or voluntary from the client's perspective.


Dr. Mau works with physicians and supports the appropriate use of psychiatric medications. He proposes that the Narrative approach provides a better model for client success than does the medical model when working in a counseling setting.


Dr. Mau has worked successfully with a variety of compulsions, OCD behaviors, Tourette's Disorder, and ADHD (formerly ADD).


The workshop includes elements of Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and waking state hypnosis.
