 “In the Cultural Awakening of the #MeToo Movement, How Can Psychotherapists Help?”


 “Using the Therapeutic Relationship to Build Her Inner Strength, Resistance to Mistreatment, and Pursuit of Mutually Caring Relationships”


                  Carla Beatrici, Psy.D., Marian Sharkey, Ph.D.,

Tamara Garrity, Psy.D., and Michael Zakalik, Psy.D.

Experienced psychotherapists will discuss the impact negative gender related messages can have on female teens and women. Using clinical material from teen and adult cases, the presenters will describe how the therapeutic relationship can strengthen and stabilize genuine, internalized self-worth, constructive self-caretaking, and pursuit of mutually caring interpersonal relationships. The presenters will include how to help female teens and women within the therapeutic relationship develop their own minds, take themselves seriously, care for themselves while also caring for others, use their voices to share losses and mistreatment in relationships, stand up for themselves, and turn away from relationships that are harmful to them. They will address how male therapists can think about their roles, and how to help parents provide accurate caregiving responses that foster genuine self-worth. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion with audience participants.
