Therapeutic Dialogue:
Cross Modality Existential & Phenomenological Perspectives

Autumn 2012 Dates & Times to be Confirmed

(Estimated to start OCTOBER 2012)

Genuine Dialogue

No matter whether spoken or silent – where each of the participants really has in mind the other or others in their present and particular being and turns to them with the intention of establishing a living mutual relation between himself and them.

THE TRAINING

This online continued professional development  training will give each participant personal time and space to consider and reflect on their practice,  as well the chance to learn through  engagement with others’ contributions. The aim is to open opportunities for enhanced therapeutic relationships and dialogue in our work.

We will deepen our understanding of our clinical practice through a detailed analysis of verbatim texts of client work; we will bring into very close focus the actual words we and our clients use; and revelations will surface that might have been missed in the physical presence and oral experience of face to face therapy. The online medium is ideal for this. We will also see what existential truths show themselves, even in the mundane exchanges we have with our clients.

This training is geared as cross modality for no matter what our approach, when we discern better what is actually there in our work with clients, then we are better informed to make our interventions.

This should be an interesting and fun forum for developing practice:  reflexivity and self-challenge keep our work creative and vibrant even with the toughest client situations.

THE TRAINER
