The heart of great therapy starts with creating a sense of safety and comfort - and being offered the opportunity to express, understand and gain mastery over one's thoughts, feelings and behavior. There is genuine respect for the person's or couple's inherent strengths and capacities to engage in a process of change and growth. A mutual, clear understanding of the difficulties and challenges as well as the motivations, goals and expectations of the client guides the development and achievement of realistic, coherent and obtainable treatment goals - as well as greater functionality, well-being, performance and emotional stamina.
Over decades of experience, I have moved towards evidence-based therapeutic models & techniques - on a short, medium & longer-term basis; those that are effective, efficient, engaging, experiential (in addition to being cerebral), "user-friendly" and allowing for reflection on and the reconfiguration of past counter-productive feelings, behavior and beliefs.
We can meet for many reasons: stress; suffering; loss; feeling "stuck"; life cycle transitions or passages for which we are not well-prepared for (career, school, relationship, etc.); interpersonal conflict ("L'enfer, c'est les autres" or "Hell is other people" - Sartre, 1944); emotional "de-triggering", performance + resilience enhancement, and Mindfulness.
Le cœur d'une bonne thérapie commence par créer un sentiment de sécurité et de confort - et se voir offrir la possibilité d'exprimer, de comprendre et de maîtriser ses pensées, ses sentiments et son comportement. Il y a un véritable respect pour les forces et les capacités inhérentes de la personne ou du couple à s'engager dans un processus de changement et de croissance. Une compréhension mutuelle et claire des difficultés et des défis ainsi que des motivations, des objectifs et des attentes du client guide le développement et la réalisation d'objectifs de traitement réalistes, cohérents et confortablement réalisables + entretenue.
Au cours de décennies d'expérience, j'ai évolué vers des techniques thérapeutiques fondés sur des preuves- à court, moyen et long terme; celles qui sont efficaces, efficientes, engageantes, expérientielles (en plus d'être cérébrales), « conviviales » et permettant la réflexion et la reconfiguration des sentiments, comportements & croyances contre-productifs.
On peut se rencontrer pour plusieurs raisons: le stress; Souffrance; perte; se sentir coincé"; les transitions du cycle de vie ou les passages auxquels nous ne sommes pas bien préparés (carrière, école, relation, etc.); conflit interpersonnel ("L'enfer c'est les autres"- Sartre, 1944); « De-déclenchement » émotionnel, amélioration de la rendement; le calme..

Richard D Rapoport's Groups

Couple Enhancement

These eight-week seminars are based on material developed over many years of providing couple enhancement training with the Sex and Couple Therapy Service of the Psychology Department (McGill University Health Centre - Royal Victoria Hospital). The focus is on creating a relaxed "user-friendly" environment and an enjoyable process of both self-examination and greater relationship awareness. Sessions are focused on the psychology of attraction, love, anger and conflict resolution, communication, emotional intimacy, physical intimacy and spiritual growth. Meetings are held in a relaxed atmosphere and provides an effective and inspiring way to gain insight into oneself and one's "couplehood".

More about this group

"Self -parenting"

"Self-parenting" provides guidance and training in recognizing and responding to some of our greatest needs: to boost our sense of respect for ourselves as unique individuals, and to free ourselves from counter-productive thinking and self-sabotaging emotions. Training also involves such skills as: distress tolerance, emotional regulation, grounding, self-soothing, confidence-building and performance enhancment. The group is primarily attended by participants who are generaly comfortable with their overall functioning, but are looking to develop their capacities to more sucessfully deal with personal, professional, relationship or work or sports-related objectives or challenges.

More about this group

"Releasing the Creative Process"

These groups are based on work that I originally did at The Royal Academy of Music in London (U.K.). The objective is to assist participants in both the awareness of and the expression of their creative capacities - whether they are currently working professionally, would like to do so, or simply want to deepen the level of creativity in their daily lives. Attention is paid to to "blocks" in the creative process and the capacity for self-expression. Emphasis is placed on the development of a more tangible sense of self (selves!), & responding to self-defeating thoughts, feelings and attitudes.
