Psychodynamic-interpersonal therapy (PIT) is a safe, simple and effective treatment for people who suffer from persistent physical symptoms. This course will give you an introduction to using the Conversational Model for people with persistent and challenging physical symptoms, including Medically Unexplained Symptoms.

During the day you will focus on the basics of the PIT model with role play and video examples.

Behaviour: You will learn the five key PIT behaviours.
Theory: We will explain the concept of ‘forms of feeling’ and its central role in the PIT approach.
Action: You will learn through video examples, role play and tag team work to bring the model to life.
