Challenging dynamics: Silence
An experiential seminar for therapists who want to explore their relationship with silence, its function, and its management in therapy.
"The word 'listen' contains the same letters as the word 'silence'" - Alfred Brendel.
About this event
What’s your relationship like with silence in therapeutic space? Is it welcomed or uncomfortable? Is there too much or too little? Is it good or bad?
As therapists, we are encouraged to think that silence is not an empty space, because it has its own purpose. We learn about the tension of silence as well as paying attention to the tension that silence creates. So what is your emotional experience with silence?
In this workshop, practitioners will pool together and share their experiences and understanding of silence.
Giovanni and Sam will facilitate and share their knowledge and experience by creating an experiential learning environment for practitioners to discuss limitations. There will be opportunities to consider some of the challenging dynamics when we think of silence, and practitioners will be encouraged to contribute and share their meaning around it.
Join Giovanni and Sam to explore the function of silence in the therapeutic space.
