much less help them focus on their internal emotional and physical experience. In this workshop, we’ll explore techniques-- drawn from Impact Therapy, a creative, interactive, multisensory model--that wake up clients, rivet their attention, attune them to their inner realities, and promote rapid self-discovery and change. We’ll explore a range of multisensory approaches that incorporate visual imagery, metaphors, and simple props--cards, chess pieces, modeling clay, sheets of paper, rubber bands, chairs--to fully engage clients’ visual, kinesthetic, and imaginative capacities. Clients are inevitably drawn in by the creative fun of these techniques, which work with a variety of clinical approaches and models. (This session will continue with Workshop 302.)
