However, when therapists attempt using the technique, it often does not produce the intended or intuited results. Having started with what seemed a burning, vibrant issue, the spark gets lost, and the interaction ‘goes flat’ or starts going round in circles.
This CPD day aims to engender both detailed knowledge and skill as well as confidence, whatever level of experience you are currently bringing to this type of work. It is designed as a comprehensive summary of my experience with the technique, (and thus suitable for those who have participated in previous workshops on this topic, aiming at rounding this off into a whole).
I am confident that in terms of the nitty-gritty detail of technique (what you actually do and say as a therapist and in what sequence), these days will be amongst the most specific and useful you will ever do. It's as close to a 'recipe book' of therapeutic intervention as is feasible when we are interested in the aliveness and spontaneity of the client-therapist interaction.
