The Conversational Model, originally founded by both Bob Hobson and Russell Meares, has flourished on 2 continents. However rather like siblings, individuals sharing genes and heritage, different and yet with much in common, each of the UK and Australian versions has developed somewhat uniquely. The work of our UK colleagues has developed a brief form of the CM, therapy termed Psychodynamic Interpersonal Therapy (PIT), with a strong evidence and teaching base. Today’s Think Tank session will give a short orienting overview of PIT, its evidence and its skills, followed by a detailed viewing and discussion of a recent teaching film Loss to keep it “real”. For those who have access you could pre-view both an introductory film on PIT and the Loss film on the Canvas Welcome site under the Clinical Interviews tab. This would be especially useful for those currently doing PSTY5202. However the offered Think Tank introduction will hopefully summarise some main points so that we can all view the films to see PIT in action and fruitfully discuss what we notice.
