Fine Tuning Experiential Techniques (2 days; 12 hrs)
Day 1 (6 hrs) – Attunement, Reparenting child modes, Working with antagonists, Imagery rescripting I;
Day 2 (6 hrs) – Imagery rescripting II, Chairwork I & II, Troubleshooting, Therapist pitfalls
Who is this workshop for? This workshop is suitable for practicing therapists who have already received training in experiential techniques. Experience of using imagery rescripting and/or chairwork is a pre-requisite as comfort and familiarity with the basic delivery of these techniques is assumed. This workshop will be useful for those therapists looking to enhance the effectiveness of their delivery of experiential techniques, deepen their existing practice or overcome obstacles they are currently experiencing. The workshop may also benefit those who are currently training in an experiential therapy (e.g., schema therapy).
The success of experiential techniques relies upon providing the optimal corrective emotional experience. Participants will learn skills to enhance emotional attunement and increase the specificity of their interventions. The management of difficult and challenging situations typically observed in clinical contexts will be covered. Therapist pitfalls that interfere with the ability to bring about emotional change will be explored. The workshop will utilise live demonstrations and imagery re-scripting and chairwork video teaching resources, allowing participants the opportunity for practical experience and guidance. Depending on the size of the group, there may be opportunities for ‘live’ supervision of difficult cases with role play and to tailor the workshop to the specific needs of the training group.
