Gestalt therapy as embodied relational practice
Mal Thompson is offering a creative workshop for professionals who wish to develop their skills through embodied dialogue which support the clients relational experience
Aims of the workshop:
Embodiment: Developing awareness of the sensate experience of my body/self in relation to others and the field around me.
Attunement: Reaching out with my senses to whatever I am experiencing or noticing as the field around me shifts and changes.
Resonance: Developing my skills in noticing and amplifying my sensate responses in the moment.
Articulation: Understanding the process of how to make known to myself and/or the client the description of the embodied shifts and changes in the field as we sense them.
Developing the process for the therapist as "responsive container" for providing continuity for the clients experience through embodied dialogue.
How to relate dialogically and descriptively in the moment in order for ourselves and our clients to be open to seeing what is happening here and now.
