A series of four two-day workshops on a Friday and Saturday and three Skype sessions in between (in groups of three).
To explore in more depth our own relational embodiment as therapists (and supervisors/trainers):
To practise, integrate and establish an embodied orientation in our everyday practice. This can effect fundamental changes to our experience of the therapeutic relationship. The intention is that each participant will be supported by the facilitator and the group to discover and establish their own particular style and approach to their own relational embodiment as a therapist
The focus is exploratory rather than didactic, and offers an opportunity to learn together and from each other within the continuity of a closed group spread over a year.
Although relevant in all therapeutic contexts the focus will be more on the particular difficulties and stresses of working within the relational fields of people suffering from developmental trauma.
The final workshop will include a short introduction to working with clients’ embodiment, this could be the focus of a further series of workshops.
Last but not least: time out to reflect, digest and develop as therapists in a closed group and beautiful environment.
This is relevant to the following groups: Those who have completed at least one year of training in CAT, qualified in another relational therapy or who work with people suffering from developmental trauma. It is highly relevant to trainers and supervisors. It is preferable to have done an introductory workshop with Tim, if not please contact Tim directly at email@example.com to discuss.
Tim Sheard qualified as a CAT psychotherapist in 1997, has a background in medicine, and has trained in body psychotherapy, transpersonal and constellations work. Nowadays his teaching in the UK and Finland focuses on embodiment as a creative resource in mediating the therapeutic relationship, enhancing relational capacity and reducing therapist stress and burdening. This is described in the summer 2017 edition of ‘Reformulation’.
