THE ANATOMY OF A THERAPEUTIC LETTER
Presenter: Don McGillivray MSc. MEd.
Time: 9:00 – 4:00 P.M.
Location – Riverbend United Church – 14907-45 Ave.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This workshop will explore creative ideas on how to use therapeutic letters in narrative practices.
A discussion of the theoretical background, important principles, and ethical issues in employing these letters will begin this journey.
Participants will discover how people’s skills and knowledges can become more visible to them and the therapist when a therapeutic letter is written after a session.
WE WILL EXPLORE:
- How notes taken during a session can provide a summary that can be surprising
- How the problem story collides with the new story in the making
- How these letters provide an archive of the persons own words or co-agreed language as much as possible
- How the insider wisdom, knowledge of the person/family is captured in unimaginable ways
- How these letters can identify the circumstances under which the document might be consulted
- How these letters might affect responses to the problem, their lives, and relationships
This will be a skill-building workshop that includes sample letters, interaction, and exercises.

Do you work with individuals or couples where one or both partners have an addiction or history of addiction? Want to deepen your skills in working with your clientele?
Don’t miss this opportunity to take part in a one day workshop – Addictions, Attachment & Imago – Attachment Difficulties in Adult Addictions, an Imago Perspective facilitated by Maureen Brine Reg.N, ICADC – Addictions Specialist and Senior Imago Clinical Instructor from Toronto. She is here in Calgary on June 9, 2014. Time is 9-5:30pm and the location is to be announced.
This course will elaborate how inadequate and/or traumatic attachment to caregivers in childhood can manifest itself as a “hole in the soul” that draws some people to addictions. The Imago Relationship Therapy (created by Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt – authors of Getting the Love You Want) perspective offers the opportunity for the wound that was originally created in an intimated relationship to be healed in a current intimate relationship. We anticipate you will leave this training with renewed energy and a deeper understanding of addictions as a relational disorder.
