CD08 – Transforming Belief Barriers
“Belief barriers” are beliefs or assumptions that interfere with or undermine our motivation and progress toward the successful achievement of our goals. Many such barriers will emerge for clients during brief therapy. Therapists need to have the skill to create “belief bridges” that get over or bypass limiting beliefs and belief barriers, and ultimately create the possibility to transform them. This demonstration will show how to identify a belief barrier and help create a “belief bridge” that reconnects the client to key resources and shifts their focus to a broader perspective.
- Describe the structure of belief barriers and belief bridges.
- Present the key steps for creating a belief bridge that allows a client to successfully transform a belief barrier.
- Demonstrate how to identify and address a limiting belief and create a belief bridge that reconnects a client to his or her deeper resources.
