This is a 2-day Workshop
Facilitators: Dr. Lorraine Price & Julie Dearden
When the early relational needs in infancy go unmet, they are searched for into adulthood. In therapy, these infantile needs can re emerge and the client’s relational story can be told through the transference relationship.
In this workshop we will look at these early needs, regression in therapy and outside of it, and how to work within the unconscious relationship to help the client find a narrative for their experiences. This workshop will be clinical, theoretical and experiential, with the aim of helping therapists to be more effective in working with these issues.
Workshop 11 – January 26, 2020
Facilitator: Bernadette Divilly
Moving Awareness practice through the use of Contemplative Dance and Authentic Movement practice provides therapists in supervision with a route to understanding how we metabolize our own internal states and those of our clients through the body awareness and action. It’s a gentle way to cultivate presence and to explore somatic counter-transference.
In this experiential workshop, participants will be introduced to the Contemplative Dance Practice (www.barbaradilley.com) translated by Dance Movement Psychotherapist Bernadette Divilly to explore the supervision process within psychotherapy and some of the witnessing principles of authentic movement.
Contemplative Dance Practice (CDP) mingles the discipline of meditation and improvisation in a simple structure using personal awareness practice, open space and discussion/ reflection time. Participants will practice tracking kinesthetic delight and cultivating awareness while engaging with the four pillars of mindful movement practices. The intention is to apply the CDP model to support supervision as interactive field. Attention will be directed towards client care as the core activator of the movement process. This workshop is focused on being a support to the supervision processes and not as supervision. Its primary purpose will be to welcome and be with the unknown kindly. This workshop is suitable for experienced supervisors and professionals who are engaging with supervision in a variety of contexts.
