International Society for Experiential Professionals:
Training for Practitioners: “Show Me, Don’t Tell Me”
This training focuses on the theoretical basis of action-oriented experiential methodologies. Behavioral Health professionals often use experiential therapy in the treatment of trauma, attachment repair, behavior disorders, anger, grief and loss recovery, substance abuse, and various types of physical and behavioral addictions or compulsive behaviors.
Participants will learn techniques to help their clients become free of painful, unhappy, or otherwise bad feelings from past experiences, to change the nature of their current and future relationships, and live up to their full potential. Experiential exercises can be used in conjunction with different styles of traditional talk therapy and will include exercises for use with individuals, groups, couples, private practice, and clinical treatment therapists.
Participants gain hands-on experience in applying experiential methods. Additionally, there is an emphasis on visual communication, experiential teaching, and presenting a “learning by doing” method. Basic psychodrama techniques are also reviewed. The training combines teaching presentations with live demonstration.
Who should attend
This event is appropriate for anyone wanting to learn experiential methodologies including but not limited to mental health professionals who work with adults, adolescents, and family members such as psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, marriage/family therapists, counselors, teachers, doctors.
