A New IPT Tool: Power, Influence and Acceptance Zones

thursday June 15, 2023 10:30- 12:00


In this session, Dr. Soares-Monteiro will present a new IPT tool to help empower the patient to face their interpersonal problems, with a focus on what they can control (fully or partially) and accepting without expectations what they cannot.  The presentation is based in stoic philosophy, and published in his new book of 2023, “We change by what we do“.

The session will include interactive discussion and participant role playing as well as observations of experts demonstrating supervision techniques.
