Ann Weiser Cornell • Saturday Afternoon
LOCATION: EMBASSY ROOM
As therapists, we’re all familiar with how often clients get stuck in stereotypical, frozen ways of responding to their lives. So how do you help them get out of their familiar mental routines and into the realm of fresh experience? This workshop will demonstrate how to facilitate clients to experience breakthrough moments that integrate mind and body and open the doorway to new ways of “knowing.”
- The difference between the universal emotions, like anger, sadness, and joy, and the unique experience of a situation or moment represented in a felt sense
- When and how to use specific techniques—such as the empathic prompt and facilitative language—to help clients stay with, rather than label and interpret, their moment-to-moment experience
- How to facilitate felt senses with clients who are over-intellectualizing, low-affect, and self-critical
