Congruence and creativity
“I discovered first (inevitably) for myself the power, the potential, the truth of images made visible. I learned that images, like dreams, tap into the world of spontaneous knowing, nothing to do with thoughts. When dialoguing with a picture, I’d have those moments of ‘aha!’, when the image gave up – or rather when I recognised – a message to me.” – Liesl Silverstone
This one day workshop will give participants the opportunity to explore:
- What is congruence? and why is this condition important in the counselling relationship?
- What blocks may be getting in the way of you being congruent with your clients?
- How using a creative way of working can improve your congruence skills?
I will refer to the theory of Carl Rogers and also Liesl Silverstone’s person-centred art therapy skills.
This workshop will be experiential and also give you opportunities to practice your congruent skills.
