Creating resources from stories - heroes and villains
7 Holly Avenue West
Newcastle Upon Tyne
Tyne & Wear
A stimulating and interactive workshop to explore the theory of archetypes and work with them with clients to create a more helpful internal world, combating the demons and monsters that can attack us every day.
Many psychological and therapeutic traditions recognise and discuss the ways in which ourselves can be made up of archetypal constructs and conflicts. From the first outlining of these in Jungian theory to the modern application of these in acceptance and commitment therapy and superhero therapy, these can be used as resources to help clients create and strengthen resources to help them overcome the villains of anxiety, depression, shame and anger.
This workshop will:
- Outline some of the theory behind archetypes.
- Develop understanding of how archetypes can be explored with clients.
- Give you an opportunity to identify your own archetypes, heroes and villains.
- Show how these may manifest in the client and the therapeutic relationship.
- Outline what superhero therapy is and how it can be used.
- Look at the therapist as hero and what tools that gives us to use with clients.
The aim is to ensure your therapeutic toolbox is enhanced, your practice refreshed and your imagination engaged.
