WS18 – How to Deeply Open to a Client’s Experience with Safety and Skill
Location: Regency Ballroom
Difficulty: All Levels
By virtue of our “mirror neurons”, it is impossible for therapists to not be deeply touched by client’s experiences. We will explore how this can be done skillfully and safely, thereby opening multiple pathways of feedback, compassion, and technical competencies. Special attention will be to mindful activation of the three “minds” of somatic, cognitive, and relational field intelligence, again with the intent of creating a deep and sophisticated conversational connection.
- Describe 3 ways to deeply connect with a client.
- Demonstrate how these relational connections can improve feedback and technical competency.
- Identify verbal and nonverbal channels for a creative conversation
