The Practice of Exquisite Attunement in Dr.Yoram Kaufmann’s Approach to the Psyche: A NEW KIND OF CARING

     In his revolutionary book, The Way of the Image, Dr. Yoram Kauffman brings us the foundation for an incredibly rich and profound approach to the psyche. He stated that the work should be different with each patient, based on the patient’s material, on his or her “orients” or inner guidelines. His Orientational approach has been dubbed one of the most impactful for therapists’ work. His clinical concept of “exquisite attunement”, concerns seeing what was really there and using “objective knowledge” to translate the meaning of images and profoundly alter people’s lives. Dr. Yoram Kaufmann, who died just last year, was an extremely influential thinker, teacher and practitioner, known to many as one of the great psychologists of our time.

      Before he died, Dr. Kaufmann asked David Rottman, his editor and publisher and an esteemed teacher in his own right, to be responsible for disseminating his pioneering work, and David Rottman has become a respected and popular presenter to professional groups in this mission.

  1. Understand the concept of Exquisite Attunement in the therapeutic encounter, based on Yoram Kaufmann’s crystallization of Jung’s idea of “orient” or “dominant.”

  2. Explore how the “Orientational” Approach to clinical work leads to the controversial idea of a “correct” or “incorrect” interpretation at every clinical moment.

  3. Interpret dreams from an Orientational point of view, including the patient's dreams of the therapist.

  4. Understand how the psyche reacts to the precision of being cared for in the clinical setting with “Exquisite Attunement”.
