    Full Description:

    Designed for those individuals who have completed a Level One training in Hakomi Experiential Psychotherapy, Level Two focuses on the map of character theory and practice. Character refers to early learning and adaptation processes. As children, we imprint experiences that shape our neural development in ways that result in an enduring set of beliefs and perceptions. These beliefs, or implicit models, unconsciously organize our behavior resulting in automatic and habitual strategies for living that are both adaptive and limiting.

    Level Two of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology continues to develop the skills and practices learned in Level One, introduces new theoretical maps to help refine participants' application of the Hakomi method, and includes extensive advanced supervision. Satisfactory completion of Level One is the prerequisite for acceptance into Level Two. This level focuses on in-depth coverage of the Hakomi method's conceptualization of character theory, an understanding of the organization of personality and character into patterns that reveal developmental and cultural wounding. Participants are guided in creating customized strategies to help attune to and access clients' core material, offering reparative experiences to help heal developmental trauma/attachment wounds and cultural wounds.

    Objectives:

    In this training you will learn to:

    • Recognize the somatic organization and governing beliefs related to each of the character strategies
    • Engage effectively with the five basic categories of character strategies used in Hakomi Experiential Psychotherapy
    • Implement effective clinical strategies for working with character in a psychotherapeutic context through demonstrations and experiential exercises
    • Evaluate client-therapist interactions from the perspective of character development
    • Work with sensitivity to the neurobiological context of of human change processes, including character formation and change
    • Use Hakomi's dynamic diagnostic map, the Hakomi Sensitivity Cycle, to tailor your interventions with greater precision
    • Employ mindful self-awareness to address counter-transference and therapist's core issues that impact clinical effectiveness
    • Review and deepen your skill in working with child states to bring about lasting transformation

    Cost: $3200 with $500 deposit by 7/13/23 8/15/23; $3700 with a $500

    deposit after 7/13/23 8/15/23.

    ***Early Bird Rate Extended to August 15th, 2023!

    ***The cost above is for tuition only. Graduates of the Hakomi Professional Skills Training (Levels 1 and 2) may retake this course for half price.

    Realization Process Meditation Teacher Online Certification Training

    Attunement Practices for Embodied Nondual Realization

    With Judith Blackstone, PhD

    October 6, 2023-April 12, 2024

    Register

    Dates of classes with Judith - Fridays, 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern. October 6, October 20, November 3, November 17, December 1, December 15, February 2, February 16, March 1, March 15, March 29, April 12.

    Format - twelve ninety-minute classes live on Zoom with Judith, six optional review classes with Candace Cave, eleven reports/questions answered by Judith via email, weekly practice with a partner assigned to you within the group, monthly practice with someone outside of the group, optional peer cohort practice sessions

    The Realization Process attunement practices offer an effective complement to any psychotherapy modality by teaching a method of deepening inward contact with oneself that cultivates wholeness, vitality, relaxation and authenticity. The practices can contribute to healing attachment issues by helping people connect deeply with other people without losing inward contact with themselves.

    In the Realization Process, nondual realization is the uncovering of our primary nature: fundamental consciousness pervading our body and environment as a unity. This training teaches the main Realization Process practices for embodied nondual awakening, as well as specific practices for cultivating the subtlety, openness, luminosity and steadiness of nondual realization. The training includes sitting, standing and walking meditations for opening subtle perception, refining your breath and energy and deepening your innate capacities for love, pleasure and mental clarity. As fundamental consciousness, we are both empty and present. We are both whole within our individual being and unified with everyone and everything around us.

    Participants will learn how to perceive and help people overcome individual obstacles to nondual realization, and how to accelerate results in meditation practice for both beginning and advanced practitioners. The training is also an opportunity to deepen your own realization of fundamental consciousness, through intensive practice of the Realization Process meditations.

    Requirements for registration: Five hours of experience of the Realization Process practices with Judith Blackstone or a senior Realization Process teacher (not a book or recording).

    Cost - $1600 ($1200 for USABP members).

    A Process Model Reading Group:

    Chapters V - VI with Rob Parker

    Rob Parker studied philosophy with Gene Gendlin for several hours a week from 2003 until Gene's passing in 2017. Rob has been leading A Process Model (APM) reading groups for many years and we are delighted that Rob has now teamed up with the Institute to offer them.

    Register

    Presented by The International Focusing Institute

    January 10 to June 26, 2024 - 25 weekly meetings on Wednesdays 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PT
    Location: Online via Zoom

    Cost: Sessions 1-13*: Regular price $470 Modified price $315 Lowest price $155

    Sessions 14-25*: Regular price $470 Modified price $315 Lowest price $155

    A Process Model

    Having developed most of the basic Process Model concepts in chapters I – IV, Gendlin proceeds in chapters V and VI to develop basic concepts about life, including behavior, perception, and consciousness. As always, the concepts are both first-person and third-person (you can feel them in your own experience, and you can see them functioning in other people and in animals). Each concept is a direct referent, that is, it doesn’t define reality, rather it points to an experience that you can find in yourself, just as a handle points to a felt sense. If you learn the concepts well enough to find their experiential meaning, you will discover a new and vivid sense of your own life process, your body-environment interaction.

    We’ll explore many concept-handles, for example stopped process, leafing, thrashing, stop-ons, and the open cycle. We will also understand and experience old concepts in new ways, for example evolution, imagination, space, and time.

    The process model understanding of consciousness alone is worth the price of admission in Rob's opinion.

    Rob Parker grew up in a scientific family, with a deep appreciation for the power and beauty of modern science. Rob was also interested in spirituality from an early age, and has practiced yoga and zazen for many years. And all along, he has sensed that science and spirituality must be related, because reality doesn’t come in separate packages.

    These interests led to a career in psychology and to an interest in the philosophical assumptions that underlie psychology and modern science. Rob specialized in psychological trauma; he designed and directed several treatment programs for both trauma survivors and perpetrators, published and lectured for professional audiences and appeared on national media.

    His experience as a psychologist made Rob acutely aware of the problems inherent in our current approach to science. In 2000, the search for a new scientific paradigm led him to visit Gene Gendlin, who had just retired from the University of Chicago and was living near Rob. Rob recognized in Gendlin’s work a revolutionary new way of exploring and understanding science, spirituality, meaning and the related issues of our time. Recognizing a once in a lifetime opportunity, Rob began weekly meetings with Gendlin from 2003 until his passing in 2017. This class is part of Rob’s ongoing commitment to understand and experience Gendlin’s philosophy ever more deeply (learning by teaching), and to share that understanding and experience with others.

    We are proud to share this introductory SoULL program, which substantially improves the quality of people’s ordinary lives and expands pracitioners breadth of practice and stamina.

    What do we do? In this course, students are introduced to a somatically-oriented overview of human development, and a language of human life that includes growth, aging and dying. Students learn to see spiritual, energetic and physical experience as deeply connected through the human life span and even beyond. On its own, this course helps people reorient their ideas of life and death and know themselves as part of nature, not opposed to it, which radically reduces existential anxiety. This course also offers a way for students to step into SoULL material without a full year commitment.

    THE MORE WE CARE ABOUT EACH OTHER, THE MORE VULNERABLE WE ARE TO SHAME. INTENTIONALLY OR UNINTENTIONALLY, WE POKE EACH OTHER IN THE TENDER SPOTS.

    People in relationships can shame each other multiple times a day, often without realizing what is happening. This can become a highly reactive cycle, preventing both people from getting their basic safety and attachment needs met. The more we become afraid of losing connection or not getting our needs met, the more likely this becomes. And shame can distort how we hear each other; the received message may have little to do with the message the partner is attempting to send.

    In this workshop we will explore the blame/shame game in relationships and learn how to help stop shaming each other and work together to create a secure base and heal the wounds of the past.

    We will:

    Look at some of the many subtle ways shame can be triggered.

    Explore shaming moments with great care so we can teach our clients how to avoid shame-based reactivity.

    Learn the gentle art of counter-shaming and how to avoid triggering feelings of inadequacy in ourselves or in another person.

    Talk about, have compassion for, and heal past shaming incidents within the relationship.

    Help each person to understand, have compassion, and be there for each other—to learn to face the shame dragon together, to avoid shaming in the present and heal shame from the past.

    About the Event

    Are today’s psychotherapy theories doing enough to address the critical role of emotion in therapy?

    Cognitive and affective neuroscience research has clearly shown that emotion determines every aspect of cognition and behavior in every moment of our lives:

    This implies that every therapy modality—body-oriented or otherwise—would have better outcomes if it gave emotion and its regulation an important, if not central, role in its treatment approaches.

    Neuroscientific evidence in the past twenty-five years has also revealed that cognition, emotion, and behavior depend not only on the brain, but also on how we embody, and the environment.

    This has clear implications for all psychotherapy modalities—body-oriented or otherwise. To work with cognition, emotion, or behavior without taking the body and the environment into account would be to provide less-than-optimal care to our clients.

    Join us for an insightful forum hosted by Liam Blume, Program Director at USABP, where he'll bring together two renowned experts, Dr. Leslie Greenberg and Dr. Raja Selvam, to share their research-backed paradigms for working with emotions and explore the transformative role of emotions in therapy.

    This discussion will draw upon cultural trends, scientific discoveries, recent research, somatic psychology, and in-the-field experiences.

    This is a unique opportunity to gain practical strategies and engage with our esteemed panelists in a stimulating Q&A session.

    Big Picture Insights and Intervention Takeaways

    By attending this forum, clinicians, practitioners, bodyworkers, and coaches can gain valuable insights and complementary approaches for practitioners to use with other modalities to help clients self-regulate and enjoy a wider range of emotional experiences.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Explore the History and Definitions of Emotions in Mental Health: Gain clarity on the types of emotions (i.e., mood, affect, emotions, and feelings). Address motivations, drives, attitudes, and temperaments. Learn more about how and where emotions are generated.
    • Lessons Learned: Delve into the research highlighting the importance of emotions in client care. Explore significant articles and implications for theoretical approaches and interventions.
    • Treatment & Integration: Learn insights and techniques that complement other theories and aid in improved client goal outcomes. Consider the contributions of emotional embodiment to working with individual, collective, and intergenerational trauma. Get new findings on how working with emotions can impact cognitions (i.e., beliefs, chronic intrusive thoughts) and behaviors.
    • In-practice Insights: Explore practical strategies for expanding a client's emotional capacity, managing arousal levels, and the pros and cons of catharsis.

        Description

        We tend to see illness in our time as strictly chemical, biological or structural, and often think it is something that someone else can fix. But of course it is also a deeply personal journey of healing, and we often look for meaning and personal empowerment when ill.

        In this program we will consider the body and energy systems as one, and consider how energy systems develop and hold consciousness. Adding this lens to the view of healing helps us begin to read illness like a poem, and give clues for how to guide and be with people who are ill, and our own illness. Illness tells a story. Together we will begin to learn to listen to it and let it guide and empower us

        Presenter Information

        Jeanne Denney:

        Jeanne Denney is a transpersonal and somatic psychotherapist, educator, a hospice worker, healer, author of The Effects of Compassionate Presence on the Dying, and founder of the School of Unusual Life Learning (SoULL), and creator of the concept of the “Whole Life Doula”

        Since leaving an engineering career 22 years ago, Jeanne has worked in many venues to help people fearlessly embrace a life which includes aging, dying and nature. This has involved years at bedsides with the elderly and children, in study and research, in contributing pioneering ideas to somatic psychology, in death and grief work, teaching in somatic institutes internationally, and has helped to create and facilitate the Art of Dying projects in New York City.

        Jeanne’s insights on energy and the body through aging, illness, and dying have been derived from this wide lens of human experience and a deep understanding of our mortal journey.

        Trauma, Shame, and the Nervous System - Online Workshop - 13 CE Credits

        Friday, April 5, 12, 19, 26, 2024

        10:00 AM - 6:00 PM PT

        Register

        SHAME AND TRAUMA ARE BOTH STATES OF FREEZE. SHAME, LIKE TRAUMA, PUTS THE BODY IN A FREEZE STATE AND LOWERS THE ABILITY TO THINK AND ACT CLEARLY. SHAME ALMOST ALWAYS ACCOMPANIES TRAUMA—AND BEING SHAMED CAN HAVE A TRAUMATIC EFFECT.

        In working with trauma, there is a tendency to miss the shame component that is often hiding in plain sight. And shame can be worked with most successfully as a form of trauma, utilizing many somatic techniques. Shame is also a primary emotion. And it has a strong cognitive component—the belief that “something is wrong with me”—that needs to be addressed.

        Being able to understand and have compassion for the parts of the person that are still frozen in shame and trauma helps us be able to sit with a client without having our own shame triggered. In this intermediate workshop, we will explore the connection between shame and trauma and look at ways to unlock somatic and imaginal resources to work with both effectively.

        Taught by Bret Lyon and Sheila Rubin

        Course Level - Intermediate

        PREREQUISITE: This workshop is open to students who have either taken at least one Healing Shame workshop with us or who have significant training in working with trauma.

        This 20 hour training (16 hours class time with 2 hours prep and 2 hours of follow up) brings the integrated practice of healthcare to the forefront for hands on practitioners. There is much research that shows that a sense of well-being and proper functioning of a human is based on not only physical aspects, but also on our past life experience, traumas and emotional and attachment patterns. For Practitioners willing to expand their level of knowledge to include somatic based awareness and education as well as trauma-informed assessment and treatment plans this training will bring it all together. Practitioners will learn simple techniques that can add to your skills and also give you an ethical framework to know when to refer your client to another modality. Sacred Somatics Practitioner training embraces the way forward for integrated healthcare.

        This Spotlight Series Event is brought to you in partnership with The Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy - an official member of the USABP Educator Alliance.


        Presented by Aylee Welch
        Director, Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy.



        This is a live event only. This course will not include CEs.

        Description:

        This is not a top-down lecture; it is an invitation to come together and gently unpack and explore ingrained perspectives that cause harm, others, and leave many behind; that thrive on exploitation and that forces specific ways of being while denying the deeper truths of ourselves.

        Topics to consider in advance of the event and for attendee discussion: 

        A conversation cannot be predicted. Attendees are invited to come having reflected on the following prompts and with a willingness to share:

        • What is your cultural heritage, to what degree do you identify with it, and what conflicts do you carry around it?

        • What role did people of your heritage play in imperialism, colonization, domination or oppression?

        • What role did/does the government of the country in which you live play in imperialism? Colonization?

        • What was happening in the world (not just your surroundings) from your prenatal time through age 6? How did these events affect your country, state, neighborhood, community, family/ parents?

        • How does this contribute to your perspective of and interaction with social (political) hierarchies?

        Learning Objectives:

        To stimulate curiosity and care while moving towards:

        • getting to know ourselves better in the context of unpacking whiteness, how and where it shows up, and it’s impact.

        • Inviting steps towards equity, inclusivity, and diversity which expands beyond man-made systems and into consideration of all of creation.

        General Agenda
        • Welcome
        • USABP Announcements
        • Facilitated exploration together
        • Q & A
        • Overtime discussion (after the event formally concludes)

        About our presenter Aylee Welch, LICSW:

        Aylee Welch is a master therapist and founder & director of Seattle School Of Body-Psychotherapy. Her teaching and supervision emphasize Core Energetics and also incorporates contemporary neurobiology and trauma theory. She feels, most recently, called to examine, learn about and breakdown systemic conditioning and pursue the need to de-center our human-ness. The invitation facilitates the possibility to develop intimate relationship with the greater Living Breathing World in which we and all beings co-exist and create together.

        She started working with people 40 years ago and as a therapist and educator has worked in many settings and with a wide variety of populations. She has been committed to social work and worked with DV organizations, as a crisis responder for the Red Cross and in other organizations, and co- founded and ran a non-profit for survivors of childhood sexual abuse in 1989 for 10 years. Her private practice has a focus on combining group and individual work. In 2014 she founded Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy, a Core Energetics training program. Her unconventional life path and her experience as a community herbalist & Ceremonialist inform and enhance her work and inspires and shapes the evolution of it.

        About the Spotlight Organization

        Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy offers a three-year training program which can be taken for both personal transformation and professional development. The program at SSBP incorporates the work of Wilhelm Reich and Core Energetics with contemporary therapies and Earth-based practices. With the understanding that pure life force emanates from the Core of every being and always remains intact, we study how to track the blocks that obscure it over time and through the life cycle. We learn techniques to free the expansive life energy in order to use it on behalf of our deeper life path and to reconnect with our joy. The result is as spiritual as it is psychological, opening our perception and that of those with whom we work, to the greater world around us as well as to our own unique offering. Read more

        Applied Polyvagal Theory in Yoga: Therapeutic Practices for Emotional Health

        Course Description

        This class focuses on the intersection of polyvagal theory and yoga to help your body and mind cope with the demands of stress and recover from trauma. You can compassionately support your growth by enhancing the health of the autonomic nervous system. Therapeutic yoga allows you to attend to the interrelationships between mind, emotions, physiology, and behavior while inviting you recognize the inherent wholeness that resides within your spirit.

        Applied polyvagal theory in yoga provides conscious breathing, vagal toning, mindful movement, and meditation practices that help rewire the nervous system. We help clients, students, and ourselves cultivate a felt sense of ease during times of safety, enhance our capacity to handle challenges with equanimity, and reclaim our ability to recover from stress swiftly and efficiently.

        Takeaway

        Through the lens of polyvagal theory, you will learn how the vagus nerve is a bi-directional information highway between mind and body—more importantly, we will experientially practice together yogic breath, movement, and awareness practices that can easily be integrated within psychotherapy.

        “This well-researched book not only cites the most current applicable studies related to brain science and yoga as they impact mental health, but also provides a steady and thorough summary of yoga’s ancient wisdom as it applies to Polyvagal Theory and psychotherapy…Applied Polyvagal Theory in Yoga has become a valued and validating reference as I offer LifeForce Yoga practices to the yoga and mental health professionals I serve. No matter the healing modality in which you work, I fully endorse the many gifts this book has to offer you and your clients.”
        — Amy Weintraub, founder of LifeForce Yoga, and author of Yoga Skills for Therapists, Yoga for Depression, and the Yoga for Your Mood Deck (from Amy’s foreword to the book)

        “In this beautifully articulated book, Arielle Schwartz leads the way into a deep and wide exploration of body wisdom. Her brilliance lies in her capacity to curate a path of consilience across three major disciplines: science, soma, and soul. Each chapter offers polyvagal-informed yoga practices that enable readers to bring her model to life.”
        -Jan Winhall, Polyvagal Institute, author of Treating Trauma and Addiction with the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model

          USABP ON THE MOVE is an opportunity for our community to connect and experience restorative practices while getting exposure to many forms of somatic movement and mindful body-awareness programs. 

          The root of e-motion is “to move.” The same regions of the brain responsible for movement also carry out our cognitive processes. Our brain evolved from movement and still depends on it day to day. Join us to discover how conscious movement can bring nourishing restoration, playful community connection, and the understanding of how moving helps our thoughts, words, and actions.

          Somatic tools may include, among others, breath, movement, self-directed touch, sound vibration, and conscious dialogue.

          Our pulsation, our flow of energy ~ emotions, spontaneous behavior, clear thinking ~ can all be disrupted by the events or circumstances in our lives, resulting in patterns of contracting our bodies that prevent us from connecting with others, from being realistic, and from achieving what we would like to in the world. Our goal is embodiment.

          We will explore pulsation both in terms of our breath in-stroke and out-stroke, and in our ability to be fully embodied, in contact with and accepting of our internal experience (in-stroke) a well as well-oriented in reality, able to move out into the world, connect well with people, achieve our goals and carry our dreams to fruition (out-stroke).

          This workshop is for people who work in a helping capacity with others to learn basic techniques to facilitate grounding and presence, and restore our energetic flow.

          Learning objectives:

          • Understand Contact and 'Contactlessness' both interpersonally and within the self

          • Experience various aspects of grounding from a developmental perspective

          • Promote grounding in the body to facilitate awareness and effectiveness

          • Learn how to reduce anxiety with grounding techniques

          • Describe how particular patterns of breathing, muscle tension and movement can influence a client's mood, emotional experience, expression and energetic regulation.

          • Learn to use touch and movement to change established patterns of inhibiting one's experience

          Who can benefit?

          - Mental health practitioners interested in developing or refining a body-centered approach to their practice

          - Body-workers wanting to explore the energetics of emotional health

          - Anyone who wishes to deepen their own personal development through a body-centered modality.

          In this course students are introduced to a language of human life that includes growth, aging and dying as we do a somatically-oriented overview of human development. Students learn to see spiritual, energetic and physical experience as deeply connected through the human life span and beyond. On its own, this course helps people reorient their ideas of life and death and know themselves as part of nature, not opposed to it. This radically reduces existential anxiety.

          The Nature of Being Human is taught in small classes and, like all SoULL material, is didactic, interactive and highly experiential. This material is powerful and completely accessible for people who are not therapists. Do not think that this course is only for professionals. Never fear. It is for any curious, open-minded adult.

          This in-person session takes place at the DeKoven Center in Racine, WI.

          The conference addresses the connection between polyvagal theory and bioenergetic therapy. This theme provides opportunities to learn more about how to regulate your nervous system and how to manage trauma and times of stress. Much of the new scientific research about polyvagal theory supports what bioenergetic therapy has been teaching for nearly 100 years.

          Bioenergetic analysis focuses on the notion that while we are born with a tremendous amount of vitality and energy, early life experiences cause chronic bodily tension which can lead to a decrease in breathing, energy, joy, and connection to oneself and others. In this state of chronic tension and constriction, symptoms of anxiety and depression can flourish and inhibit our vitality. Bioenergetic therapy provides tools to work with the body in a profoundly freeing way. By reducing physical and emotional blocks with breathing, grounding, and emotional expressive exercises we begin to experience an increased sense of vitality, growing ease, a greater sense of well-being, and an increased ability to sustain and enjoy relationships and connections with others. Attendees at this conference will have the opportunity to attend keynote talks, experiential workshops, and participate in small process groups, which will provide opportunities to explore these themes in a safe space, all while enjoying nourishing food, community, fun evening activities, and indoor/outdoor amenities at the beautiful Essex Woods Meeting and Retreat Center.

          Unlocking Shame Binds: Unbinding Shame from Trauma, Grief, Anger, Fear, Joy, and Pleasure - Online Workshop - 13 CE Credits

          Unlocking Shame Binds: Unbinding Shame from Trauma, Grief, Anger, Fear, Joy, Pleasure - Online Workshop - 13 CE Credits

          EMOTIONS ARE DESIGNED TO RUN THROUGH OUR BODIES AND COMPLETE IN AN ACTION.

          Every emotion has an action tendency. The action tendency of shame is to hide, vanish, disappear. Shame is designed to keep us safe by binding with the other primary emotions, lower their intensity, and keep them from completing in an action, such as grieving, reaching out, or setting a boundary. When shame binds with anger, fear, joy, curiosity, or grief, those emotions cannot finish. We get caught in a maze of feelings, with no end. When someone simply can’t get angry, or can’t finish grieving a loss, or can’t feel joyful, or can’t move forward in life, we know that shame is involved, binding with the other primary emotions in a toxic, endless stew of feelings.

          In this workshop, we will learn how to help clients untangle shame from the other primary emotions so that they can complete. A client can mourn a loss and move on, or express anger in an appropriate way, study for an exam, complete a project, or simply enjoy life. We will learn to explain the shame-fear bind, the shame-grief bind, the shame-anger bind, the shame-joy bind, and the way shame binds with curiosity to keep us stuck. And we will learn techniques to untangle the binds so the client can live their life in a fuller, more productive, and more joyful way.

          Through the Looking Glass: Using Imaginal Resources to Heal Shame - Online Workshop - 13 CE Credits

          Sat July 13, 20 2024 10:00 AM - 6:00PM PST

          Taught by Bret Lyon and Shelia Rubin

          WE ARE ALL BORN WITH POWERFUL, IMAGINAL RESOURCES. WE CAN EASILY IMAGINE PEOPLE, PLACES AND THINGS THAT HAVE NEVER EXISTED IN OUR EVERYDAY REALITY. CHILDREN LEARN TO COPE WITH LIFE LARGELY THROUGH PLAY AND FANTASY. AS WE GET OLDER, WE MAY USE THIS ABILITY LESS AND LESS, BUT IT STILL STAYS WITH US. OUR IMAGINATION NOT ONLY MAKES LIFE MORE INTERESTING, IT HELPS US SURVIVE.

          When clients get stuck in shame, the most powerful way to help them get unstuck may be to activate their imagination. In the Imaginal Realm, logic and time are fluid and flexible. What actually happened can be explored and changed. What was stuck in the cognitive realm can be reexamined and shifted. Shaming situations from the past can be revisited and resolved.

          In this workshop, we will utilize techniques from Drama Therapy, Focusing, Expressive Arts Therapy, Jungian active imagination processing and Hakomi. We will explore the critical voices and/or the childhood scenes that are still driving the internal shame dynamic in the client. And we will also cover how to use puppets and objects for tele-health appointments.

          You will learn to help clients:

          Externalize shame so that it can be worked with directly.

          Work with roles, parts and shame-based introjects.

          Access strength, resilience, inner resources and role repertoire.

          Find a deeper understanding by working with objects you already have in your office.

          Utilize imaginal techniques to give the shame back, so that it stays in the Imaginal Realm.

          Once the shame is worked through in the Imaginal Realm, the client can interact with the world differently.
