DEFT INSTITUTE MISSION

Our mission is to inspire therapists personally and professionally. We impart new skills and ways to attend to ourselves so we can feel more grounded and confident while we practice. DEFT trainings, webinars and special events utilize a

mix of lecture, PPT, live session recordings, dynamic discussion, supervision and one-on-one guided role-play with script provided. All participation is optional.


Our mission is to offer the highest quality training experience within a nurturing community.:


          We advance no-shame learning and no-shame practicing.

          We share powerful principles to reach affect and re-process trauma.

          We guide therapists to direct compassion toward themselves and to transfer compassion to our clients.

          We teach specific skills that are attachment-oriented, somatic focused, and psychodynamic.


Many clients express in recorded sessions that Susan Warshow’s focused, goal oriented, actively engaged, and deeply empathic approach is profoundly transformational.

Both therapeutic partners are likely to face shame within themselves on their joint journey. This program takes a closer look at those moments when shame can cause either the client or therapist to avoid the risks necessary to spark change. Learn specific shame-sensitive interventions when addressing common self-protective strategies that block emotional intimacy.
