✓The construction of the Self during development as an intersubjective process
✓The dissociation of the traumatised Self and the tools for integration
✓Using the mirror in psychotherapy and the strengthening of the relationship with the Self and the Other
✓MIMT in action: sharing the gaze in the mirror as a tool towards deep emotional attunement and early trauma reparation
✓The development of self-compassion as a therapeutic goal to overcome the fracture in the relationship with the Self
✓The notion of interbeing: a deep connection with everything surrounding us
During the webinar, you are going to watch videos of actual sessions with patients. The videos will illustrate procedures and interventions, which will be linked to the theoretical notions previously explained.
The landscape of contemporary psychotherapy includes a wide range of different approaches. Interventions for difficult and traumatised patients mainly focus on the process of dissociation/integration of the personality parts originated by traumatic experiences. The traumatised Self is built by means of attachment relationships, early traumatic experiences and consequent dissociative phenomena.
We can look at psychological struggles through the lenses of two interrelated indicators: the level of integration of the Self and the person’s ability to have a relationship with the outer world. Based on this assumption, psychotherapy is more and more seen as an intervention to integrate the dissociated parts into a cohesive Self. The therapeutic relationship thus plays a key role in repairing dissociated states resulting from early or later relational trauma, more or less severe.
Mindful Interbeing Mirror Therapy (MIMT) is a cutting-edge approach in which the patient and the therapist are both in front of a mirror and interact with their reflected image. This unique method is based on integrating the latest neuroscience research with clinical findings supporting its effectiveness and validity.
The construction of the Self and the construction of a relational world are two parallel processes belonging to individual development, the starting point of which is self-recognition in the mirror – a foundation stone of the construction of the identity – and the ability to recognise the other’s emotional states within the relationship. Therefore, the mirror is a unique tool to reconstruct a cohesive Self that is in relationship with the other.
Over the years dedicated to studying, developing and adjusting this approach, MIMT proved to be an innovative and highly accelerated method to create a connection between patient and therapist, which eases the integration between different Selves, allowing the patient to experience a deep form of truly transformative self-compassion.
The webinar is going to provide you with an overview of the foundational theory of the MIMT approach. Furthermore, clinical videos will be presented to illustrate some of the most significant aspects of the intervention.
Alessandro was trained by some of the best experts in Psychotherapy and Neurosciences and created the Mindful Interbeing Mirror Therapy, which he developed with Marina Cirio. He has been travelling to many countries to spread this revolutionary approach.
After her psychology studies, Marina enriched her training with the latest discoveries in psychotherapy and neurosciences. With Alessandro Carmelita, she developed Mindful Interbeing Mirror Therapy (MIMT) and delved into the clinical and research challenges of interventions with different types of patients. She has been using this innovative approach for years and has trained countless therapists interested in this new way of interacting with patients towards true and profound change.
