Working with Feeling - a Training Weekend
Working with Feeling
In this workshop participants can explore the range of meaning attributed to feelings in a variety of cultures, examine their own history in relation to feelings, and learn to work more constructively with their clients.
Psychodrama action method will be applied to the life of the group and work of individuals. Participants will have a chance to practice working with one another under supervision.
Feelings are our subjective experience of the activities of our limbic system. As such they give us an integrated readout on our perceptions and the meanings we make of them which is faster and richer than the conscious mind.
They range from subtle hunches, fleeting or nagging, through to full on passion.
We ignore them at our peril. They colour our relationships and can destroy our bodies over time.
Frequently they are not convenient. They do not obey the rules.
Learning to deal with feelings is a lifetime work. For the professional they present joy, serendipity, and a challenge.
This program is designed for professional people who are involved in health, theatre, management, consultancies, coaching, mentoring , supervision, art, writing, teaching, human potential and creative therapies. The process will assist in the deepening of abilities to step into the shoes of others and this will contribute to the effectiveness of those who are therapists, counsellors, psychotherapists, health workers, managers, trainers and educators, actors, artists, writers and poets. Supervised practice for advanced psychodrama trainees is also an aspect of this program.
