It’s no good trying to place your hand
Where I can’t see because I understand
That you’re different from me
Yes I can tell
That you can’t be what you pretend
Welcome to The American Academy of Psychotherapists Mirror Mask and Shadow: Can you see me?
We hope to offer an expansive, rich, enlivening, action-packed experience for all. Our theme pulled from the amazing history of the Academy as reflected in the book entitled Mirror, Mask and Shadow, written by deceased member Sheldon (Shelly) Kopp. By referencing history, we are inviting each of you to reflect upon how you arrived at The Academy.
Our opening experience takes aim at creating a hypnotic, mind-expanding trip into personal inner space. Within that space, what might arise? We hope what becomes visible are reflections on the emerging self through the murky inner world, and what each of us shows to the outside world wittingly and other-wise.
Members have offered to lead an assortment of compelling groups. Most offerings follow in the tradition of the Academy as process groups, while others offer other formats for rich learning and experiential opportu-nities.
On Sunday, members have the opportunity to participate in randomly-assigned leaderless process groups. This has quickly become a favorite for many to close out their Summer Workshop experience.
The American Academy of Psychotherapists has a proud and rich tradition of being the only organization of its kind in placing its main focus on the personhood of the therapist. The Summer Workshop is our flagship opportunity for participants. We hope that with our offerings seasoned veterans, newcomers and everyone in-between will find ways to make their cups overflow.
