Transforming Inner into Outer: Or how a therapist goes about choosing what to reveal about his Inner Conversation.

Dr George Lianos

A psychotherapist's self-awareness can arguably be one of the most powerful tools in psychotherapeutic practice. How a therapist conceptualises and uses this awareness has undergone significant change in the last two decades.

Ongoing self-awareness of ones subjectivity in relation to the other can be conceptualised as an internal conversation that is shared (becomes outer) in the presence of the other in accordance with ones notions of therapeutic action.

Consideration will be given to what shapes ones inner conversation before moving on to offer a Conversational Model understanding of the complex transformational pruning that turns inner into outer.

Dr George Lianos

Dr George Lianos is a Senior Consultant Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist who has practised psychotherapy for more than 30 years. He is a foundation member of ANZAP and has lectured and supervised throughout Australia and New Zealand. He has been a Clinical Lecturer and Supervisor in both the ANZAP training program, and the Sydney University Master of Medicine/Science (Psychotherapy) training program for more than 20 years.

His recent interests include the relationship between phenomenology and theory. In particular, his concerns are about how theory becomes independent of the phenomena it purports to explain, in a manner which makes the application of a theory more important than understanding the phenomena themselves. As a result, clinicians may feel pressure to demonstrate their theoretical prowess ahead of their caring and compassion.

He is currently engaged in private practice in the Sydney CBD and the Central Coast of NSW where he primarily focuses on individual and couple therapy.
