Introduction to Focusing-Oriented Complex Trauma Therapy                            

      Friday, May 11 and Saturday, May 12

9 a.m to 4 p.m.

Focusing , first 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 Focusing 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.
