Experiential methods enliven therapy through dynamic experiences that promote dynamic realizations. We will explore methods that make therapy a visual art, recognizing the visual realizations are neurologically encoded more robustly than words, hence more easily accessed when needed. We will explore the use of gestures, objects, and even sounds to empower change. We will learn the latest advances in therapist sculpting. Lecture, demonstration, and small group exercises will be used.
- Explain how to take a therapy goal and create a living sculpture of a part or process of that goal.
- Given a problem or solution, describe how to use gestures to enhance the therapeutic moment, making the words “scaffolding.”
- Describe how to assist the patient to establish change through his/her own resources.
