502 Using Mindfulness to Deepen Emotional Experience

Diana Fosha

Esther PerelFor webcast presenter Diana Fosha, emotion is more than a feeling—it’s a whole body experience. With the goal of helping her clients connect to their own vitality, she engages them in experiential practices designed to integrate mind and body. Explore how to use the therapeutic relationship to help bring enhanced vitality and awareness to your clients’ feeling states by:

  • learning ways to witness and accept emotional processes
  • discovering the glimmers of growth in the midst of a trauma narrative
  • tracking moment-to-moment shifts in emotional connection through dyadic mindfulness
  • deepening the therapeutic alliance through meta-processing
  • recognizing emergent transformational experience in the consulting room
