a.m to 4 p.m.
discovered by Dr. Eugene Gendlin at the University of Chicago in the 1960’s, is
a powerful process allowing us to connect with our body’s deeper ‘felt sense’
of an issue or problem. It presents us with more information than just our
thoughts or our emotional feeling. It connects us with our overall experience
at a deeper level. When we explore issues at this deeper, implicit level we
begin to shift and transform how we relate to those experiences and the impact
they have on our life in the present.
This two day
Oriented Complex Trauma Therapyworkshopfor counsellors and health care professionals will provide an
experiential introduction to Focusing on Day 1. Day 2 will explore how
Focusing-Oriented therapy, coupled with current knowledge of complex trauma,
brain development and adult learning; can support clients to ‘sit beside’ an
issue rather than ‘in it’. This new perspective
to these life challenges can lead to resolution, empowerment and renewed hope.
Learning Focusing-Oriented Complex Trauma therapy also offers invaluable skills beneficial for enhancing self-care and avoiding burnout to those in the helping porfessions.
