You will explore the five relations spanning the working alliance, the transference relationship, the reparative and developmental relationship, the person to person or real relationship and the transpersonal. Clarksons integrative relational model forms the basis, with a modulated structure integrating Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Attachment Theory and Intercultural approaches.
