- Emotion-Image Therapy
SYMPOSIUM “Achievements and Perspectives of Emotional Imaginative Psychotherapy”
CHAIRMAN: Nikolay Dmitriyevich Linde (Moscow, Russia)
Emotional Imaginary (or analytically effective) Therapy was created in Russia in the early90s of the last century. The method belongs to psychodynamic psychotherapy, but the EIT modality has a number of peculiarities and advantages.EIT has already become a method used in daily life to solve actual psychological problems, and at the same time EIT is a way to constant personal growth and spirituality development.
The main advantage of the method is quick diagnosis that is achieved through spontaneous images expressing traumatic feelings of a client, as well as precise emotional semantic impact that a client makes on himself via the images. A therapy result comes out immediately in consequence of mental impact on the client’s images. We claim that awarenessis not enough for healing, but a right action is needed to fix the initial psychodynamic conflict in the client’s unconscious directly.
EIT allows to rid clients of various psychosomatic problems such as asthma, allergies, pains of different localization and etiology, chronic nasal congestion, thyroid disorders, uterine fibroids, neurodermatitis etc. in a fast and effective way. EIT has shown its effectiveness in ridding clients of phobias, emotional addictions, grief and loss, psychological trauma, anger, relationship problems, lack of confidence, conflicts etc.
One of the most important aspects of EIT is development of positive and optimistic life philosophy that is the basis of all the EIT techniques and peculiar meditative exercises that we worked out.
We will report on EIT theory, principles and new achievements at a section meeting and at a congressional plenary.
Within 25 years of development EIT has made its sphere of application times wider, honed its theoretical principles, worked out a lot of effective techniques for problems analysis and resolving and lots of peculiar imaginative exercises, created an optimistic and inspiring life philosophy.
Our section enlists more than 200 members, including 7 members awarded PhD in psychology. At least 2000 experts apply EIT in their psychotherapeutic and consultative practice. The method becomes more and more famous in Russia and abroad. Currently we’ve published 7 books representing EIT, and approximately80 articles about the method.
In order to spread the method in a fast and accurate way, we conduct workshops where one can lean to teach the method. More than 20 people have already became EIT teachers. They’ve obtained certificates that allow them to teach EIT, — those certificates are signed by N. Linde and confirmed by the Professional Psychotherapeutic League. As a result of it, PPL has awarded our section an honorary diploma for the creation of a scientific and practical school! We’re proud of it, and we train psychologists in our method at our School workshop. Different EIT teachers participate in the training.

- ETHICS IN PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE OF PSYCHOTHERAPIST AND/OR PSYCHOLOGIST
CHAIRMAN: Zhukov Alexander Sergeevich (Novosibirsk, Russia)
Ethics is a regulatory science dealing with principles andnorms of human behavior. It can be narrowly defined as studies on fundamental moral and ethical principles. In the context of professional morals, professional ethics is a wide-ranging concept and it influences motives of specialists’ behavior, motivates to act in a certain way and contributes to successful performing of professional duties. The work of psychotherapist and/or psychologist is characterized by specific responsibility for patients, clients, colleagues, students and community of professionals. Breach of ethics influences badly not only on specialists, but also the whole community of professionals. For avoiding the breach of ethics as well as for maintaining reputation of community of professionals, these issues are to be regulated by the code of ethics. Code of ethics is a set of rules and principles regulating professional behavior and the way psychotherapist and/or psychologist treat patients, clients, build relationships with colleagues, students and communities of professionals.
Within the framework of the section, reports will be delivered on pressing issues and peculiarities of ethical control over professional activities of psychotherapists and/or psychologists.

Existential Cluster 9th World Congress on Psychotherapy
Curator of the Congress existential modality: Yesselson Semyon Borisovich (Russia)
Existential therapy is the only field of psychotherapy, which is not associated with any particular set of methods. In this approach, the focus is on how a person lives, faces and copes with the difficulties of life and vicissitudes of fate.
This approach is closely related with existential philosophy, representing its praxis. Possessing phenomenology and hermeneutics is a necessary condition in existential therapy to see each person and each life situation in their particularity and uniqueness.

CHAIRMEN: Nina Lavrova (St. Petersburg, Russia), Inna Zezyulinskaya (Sevastopol, Russia), Elena Romanova (Moscow, Russia)

The united efforts of systemic family psychotherapy and family counseling are aimed at mobilizing and consolidating family members in problematic situations. The general tasks of harmonization of intra-family relations with overcoming the uncertainty and inconsistency of interpersonal relations are solved. Special attention is paid to the demographic crisis. The crisis is caused not only by a reduction in the birth rate, but also by a decrease in the level of health, education, and personal responsibility of family members. The development of methods and use of psychotherapeutic technologies that help to deal with crisis circumstances is based on the results of research on the family system and the readiness of spouses to perform parental functions. The section will present reports that reveal the latest world achievements of family psychotherapy.

Psychotherapy is a medicine for the soul, which acts differently than chemicals or physical interventions, namely with the help of language and other symbolic systems. Psychotherapy includes finding the causes of internal disorders; their awareness and acceptance leads to healing. This search is based on various doctrines, theories and their development. However, until now, psychotherapists have not been able to reach agreement on what is the basis of mental health. The search for these foundations opens the philosophical horizons of the problem. Does a psychotherapist need philosophy and does a philosopher need psychotherapy? How do they interact with people and society? How did the philosophical quest of the great psychiatrist Karl Gustav Jung influence the theoretical foundations of his analytical psychology and what is the practical significance of his teaching for modern psychotherapy?
Within the framework of this conference, it is proposed to discuss a wide range of issues:
1. PSYCHOTHERAPY AND PHILOSOPHY — the origins, intersections, common paths and fields of meanings.

4. POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY AND PSYCHOLOGY.
5. THEORETICAL PHILOSOPHY AND PSYCHOLOGY. Theoretical Foundations of Analytical Psychology C.G. Jung and their place in modern psychotherapy.
6. NORMATIVE AND MORAL PHILOSOPHY AND PSYCHOLOGY.

- Khorovod (Russian traditional circle dance) as psychosocial practice in history and in modern times. Round table
CHAIRMEN: Vladimir Shamparov (St. Petersburg, Russia), Olesia Tsiglova (Vladimir, Russia), Anastasiya Kirsanova (St. Petersburg, Russia)
What is a phenomenon of a Circle dance in the 21st century? Challenges of the present time. Social and spiritual crisis of society. Today’s family — it’s problems, aspirations, solutions. Circle dance is a phenomenon of reality, it represents psychotherapeutic practices with a certain cultural background, offers solutions for contemporary problems through tradition, and reflects transversion of pedagogy with modern education.
Traditional circle dance represents a vivid reflection of the world around a person: in these dances various life situations are chanted through the dance and played out in it — people, who might later become spouses, relatives, who may be starting families together, try different roles in their possible relationships. In the variety of existing circle dances the relationships of human world are shown through the images of nature and animals. Proper images of a Man and a Woman, fitting strategies of young man’s and maiden’s behavior are formed through traditional round dances.
In the traditional circle dances the attitude of folk towards Nature, family, and towards the whole human race is reflected. Circle dances have their own timing, place, melody, they possess certain movements, which may vary depending on the occasion of recording, yet always have a historically documented origin. An important detail is that traditional round dances and songs do not have any personal view on the happenings.
Over the years, people's memory retains only things that are truthful, vibrant and natural for every person, regardless of age or of lifetime. Only the part that does not carry the reflection of a performer, but remains in the most important and general things that make human a human, is preserved in folk’s consciousness.
Traditional circle dances make a contemporary man feel needed, significant, unified with others; make us experience success and enjoy it. Round dances make it possible to live through and process things that need getting rid of, and to acquire new qualities and capabilities that are crucial for future life. In our times, the so-called European values prevail, thus we do lack warmth, cooperation, common space of joy and happiness that is present in folk circular dances.
Traditional circle dances reveal the traditions, carefully preserved in people's memory, to a modern man in all their depth. These traditions, cherishingly noted and recorded by folklore collectors, are helping us to make our lives a little better — tight here, right now.

- INTEGRATED SHORT-TERM THERAPY FOR TRAUMAS AND SYMPTOMS OF THE INDIVIDUAL, FAMILY, ORGANISATION, GROUP OR SOCIETY
CHAIR: Natalia Spokoinyi (Berlin, Germany)
This section presents new achievements and developments in integrated trauma therapy, obtained and reassessed in the framework of a spiritually-oriented approach. This creative, and, as a rule, own personal work, combining various Western and Eastern approaches, yields the best achievements of natural and humanitarian Sciences and spiritual practices. Any trauma splits the personality, breaking its harmony. The concept of injury and symptom is considered in a broad context, which also includes genetic, organizational and societal trauma. Just as a good doctor treats not a symptom or a disease, but the body as a whole, so too do we in the center of integral psychotherapy focus on the whole person and not their individual problems or processes. In case of injury to the organization, family, society, it is also a question of restoring their integrity. Standard methods of trauma therapy are focused on long-term work to create a safe space, «safety techniques», etc. This is important but often prohibitive due to time and finances. The section presents the author's individual and collaborative innovative methods of short-term therapy of mental injuries: systemic constellations, body-oriented therapy, colour therapy and other types of psychotherapy. The central focus is on the Quadripartite Body-Emotions-Intellect-Spirit (BEMS) model. The use of the model allows us to awaken the interest of the client, which immediately takes him out of the epicenter of the injury and allows them to look at themselves from the outside, to create the necessary safe space in the shortest possible time and to obtain important resources through the release of energy blocked during a trauma and access to the power of the genes, and in the case of the organization and society to corresponding resources. We further demonstrate the practical application of the method and it’s effective results in the case of mental injuries and problems in the organization, as well as in intercultural, national and religious conflicts.
- INTEGRATED SPIRITUALLY-ORIENTED APPROACH TO WORKING WITH SEVERE PSYCHOSOMATIC DISORDERS AND ONCOLOGY
CHAIRMEN: Natalia Spokoinyi (Berlin, Germany), Tatiana Nikiforova (Bratsk, Russia)
The section presents new achievements and developments in the integrated, spiritually-oriented approach to severe psychosomatics for the purpose of client recovery. The author's methods combine various individual and group methods of work, such as systemic constellations, body-oriented practices and art-therapeutic techniques (colour, music and integrative sandplay therapy, MAC, etc.) We begin with the assertion that the disease is a physical expression of the struggle between two parts of a personality: denying, destroying and supporting, affirming life. The purpose of the approach — to help the patient turn from a victim into an active creator of their own wellbeing: to mobilize their own strength, thereby giving impetus to the immune system to effectively counteract the disease and extend their years of joyful, fruitful life.
The effectiveness of the method is demonstrated by examples of clients with such serious diseases as cancer, hepatitis C, lupus erythematosus, schizophrenia and other mental disorders, etc.
- INTEGRATIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY AND WORK WITH PSYCHOLOGICAL INJURY AND EMOTIONAL OVERLOADS
CHAIRS: Belopolskaya Natalia Lvovna (Moscow, Russia), Krasilo Alexander Ivanovich, (Moscow, Russia), Ilya Pluzhnikov (Moscow, Russia)
Multilevel psychosocial model of psychotherapy will be presented in the framework of integrative psychotherapy.

Psychological trauma is considered not just as an emotional and cognitive outcome of distress, but as a special polarized form of relationship. As an example of an effective method, an introduction to “meditative fantasizing” is proposed.

CHAIRMEN: Victor Makarov (Moscow, Russia), Alexander Katkov (St. Petersburg, Russia), Vladimir Sgibov (Penza, Russia)

Each final congress of the League is represented by a large breakout session on this method, which has the increasing number of supporters. The most important characteristic of the integrative movement in psychotherapy is that the psychotherapist takes into account the individual clinical and psychological characteristics of the patient, his needs and specific features of his illness.

Positive Dynamic Psychotherapy is a psychodynamic method with an existentially humanistic vision of the human nature, enriched by a transcultural approach and behavioral techniques. The method has three forms of application (individual, family, group), develops the legacy of the St. Petersburg school of psychotherapy found by V. M. Bekhterev and is based on the school of psychology of attitudes developed by A.F. Lazursky and V.N. Myasishchev.
The main characteristic feature of positive dynamic psychotherapy is the use of the level theory of personality developed by A.F. Lazursky, which allows us to outline the goal of psychotherapy as improving not only the quality of life, but also the level of life functioning in general. For mapping of the psychotherapeutic process, an integrative theory of personality is used, developed in line with the Lazursky-Myasishchev psychology of attitudes. This personality model has three dimensions: structural (three models — harmony, identification, character), functional (three types of attitudes — towards the world, oneself, and another person), and processual (three principles — harmony, dynamics, hope). Disorders of personality attitudes, understood as conflicts — relevant, basic, and key — serve as psychotherapeutic targets. The specific features of therapy in the method of positive dynamic psychotherapy are the simultaneous harmonization (restitution) of healthy relationships and correction (reconstruction) of abnormal relationships in all three clusters of attitudes: towards oneself; towards the world; towards another person, by resolving three conflicts: basic, actual, and key. These three conflicts form the space of intrapersonal conflict and are psychotherapeutic targets. Since the personal space is formed by the totality of the personality attitudes, the resolution of the intrapersonal conflict leads to the reconstruction of the personality.
Positive dynamic psychotherapy has been developed since 2003. During this time, positive experience has been accumulated in the application of the method in clinical psychotherapy both in medical settings and in outpatient practice, in treatment of neurosis and post-traumatic stress disorders, and in rehabilitation programs for patients with psychoses. Certain techniques developed in line with positive dynamic psychotherapy (positive puppet therapy, positive sand psychotherapy, the character tree, archetypal coloring books, etc.) are widely used by psychologists when working with children. Some of the other important differences are: the use of temporal factors in psychotherapy and psychotherapeutic work according to protocols based on techniques developed in line with the PDP.

- PSYCHO-ORGANIC ANALYSIS
CHAIRMEN: Oksana Mironik-Aksenova, Paul Boyesen, Joёlle Boyesen.
Psycho-organic Analysis emerged in the second half of the twentieth century as an eclectic trend. It is a psychodynamic vector, based on the knowledge that working through unconscious conflicts leads to the energy release, and as a result, relief from a particular symptom. This is a long-term method (the process lasts from 6 months to 3.4 years). Leading psychotherapeutic principle: processing of the conflict that causes blockage in significant areas of the patient's life. This processing allows patient to experience a return of energy and activity that can be used by him to solve life problems. Analytical practice has shown that the unconscious can produce two types of energy. When clients face situations from their past, they sometimes find it difficult to express feelings which were previously suppressed: sadness, anger, joy, etc. (i.e. those feelings that they did not have the opportunity or right to express in those situations). The life energy that is manifested in this process is called a Residual energy. With the help of specially developed POA tools, it becomes possible for the client to face any of their feelings and express them.
Another type of energy is Consequent energy. Consequent energy conceals the potential of the individual: desires, needs, and opportunities that have not yet been realized. Identification of Consequent energy is the fundamental orientation of the POA. Therefore, the analysis concerns not only the past, but also what may be in the future, the formative stage. Special attention is paid to the area of needs and deals with basic physiological needs, needs for love, care, self-realization, aesthetic needs, etc.
- Psychosomatic psychotherapy
- Psychotherapeutic kinesiology
Psychotherapeutic kinesiology is a modern modality, created on edges of Applied kinesiology, traditional Chinese Medicine, Eastern practices, osteopathy, Psychology of personality, and Psychodynamic approaches.
Psychotherapeutic kinesiology is an integrative personality oriented psychotherapeutic approach, aimed on correction of different disturbances and on harmonization of a person. Integrative part is based on synthesis of different techniques and methods on bases of psychogenetic theory and model of personality: its development, psychopathology and symptom-generation.

Biopsychosocial spiritual model in the rehabilitation of cancer recovering with the crisis of spirituality problem
Chairmen of Bitekhtina L. D.(Moscow, Russia), Belarusian S.A.(Moscow, Russia),
Honorary Chairman Horuzhy S.S.(Moscow, Russia),
General Manager of Sokolovskaya I.E.(Moscow, Russia),
Responsible for international contacts and translation Lysenko E.A.(Moscow, Russia),
The report discusses current issues in the rehabilitation of cancer recovering. An oncological disease, at all stages of development, makes a person's personality vulnerable. And there is a huge likelihood to attribute the living conditions and mental disorders to post-traumatic disorder. The modern biopsychosocial spiritual model considers a person in all aspects and vectors. Bio-lesions at the body level, the effect of drug therapy; psycho-disorders of the mental level and all kinds of psychocorrection and psychotherapy, mechanisms of psychos self-regulation for patients; socio-disorders in the relations of society, since the disease can diametrically change the way of life; spiritual and problematic meaning of life, faith and rejection of faith. The spiritual component in the rehabilitation of cancer recovering has one of the primary places, but it is deficiently manifested. When living the crisis stages, at the stage of aggression (affective disorders), the disease is perceived as a punishment. One of the common questions asked by patients is: “Why?” and «For what?» And aggression is directed at God, there is a rejection of deep support, which in turn is manifested by depression, anxiety, rejection of the manifestations of life. The study of the aspect of spirituality is necessary at the stages of treatment of a patient with cancer and individual psychotherapeutic correction.
