Through The Looking Glass: Imaginal Realm Workshop
A Workshop for Therapists and other Helping Professionals
We are all born with powerful, imaginal resources. We can easily imagine people, places and things that have never existed in our everyday reality Children learn to cope with life largely through play and fantasy. As we get older, we may use this ability less and less, but it still stays with us. Our imagination not only makes life more interesting, it helps us survive.
When clients get stuck in shame, the most powerful way to help them get unstuck may be to activate their imagination. In the Imaginal Realm, logic and time are fluid and flexible. What actually happened can be explored and changed. What was stuck in the cognitive realm can be reexamined and shifted. Shaming situations from the past can be revisited and resolved.
In this workshop, we will utilize techniques from Drama Therapy, Focusing, Expressive Arts Therapy, Jungian creative imagination and Hakomi. We will explore the critical voices and/or the childhood scenes that are still driving the internal shame dynamic in the client.
We are qualified to provide 13 CEUs for MFTs, LCSWs, LPCs and LEDs for each workshop taken (CAMFT Approved CE Provider #134393*).
Many other states will also give CEUs if contacted by the individual therapist or sponsoring organization. We give workshops in many cities throughout the U.S. and Canada. See schedule for details.
