Introduction to focusing (12 hours CPD)
Focusing, developed by Eugine Gendlin, is a ‘natural’ therapeutic process used in and out of psychotherapy. It involves holding an open, non-judgemental attention internally on something that is concretely experienced, but conceptually vague. As the focuser is invited to be with their felt sense they can obtain new insights about their situation, and this may bring about a felt shift that stimulates change and/or healing of the situation.
On the level one introductory focusing course, participants will gain an understanding of focusing, how to spot when we and others are focusing naturally, and have opportunities to discuss and practise focusing skills on their own and with companions.
