Interested in learning and deepening your clinical skills with Coherence Therapy?
This workshop will focus on skill-building in company with members of the Australian CT practitioner community. Attendees arrive on Thursday 15th (3nights) or Friday 16th (2nights) till Sunday 18th, finishing after lunch. This event has an emphasis on peer-learning and experiential development.
In line with the central philosophy of CT the emphasis will be on direct experiential learning, interwoven with presentations of both live and recorded CT sessions. Members of the Australian CT practitioner community will join with newcomers and newlearners in this workshop.
The workshop will focus on small group practice sessions to maximise participants experiencing the powerful exercises that make CT so effective (including Symptom Deprivations, Overt Statements, Sentence Completions and more).
Direct learning through triads and pairs with opportunities for reflection, have been the staple for intensive learning by doing in workshops past. Self-paced learning is supported by members of the Australian CT practitioner community who have been developing skills and competence through exactly this approach.
Throughout the days there will be presentations, Q&A, and opportunity for group learning through processing participants' experiences in real time. This approach has proved to be highly effective through providing support and challenge to participants.
Attendees of previous CT peer-learning workshops in Australia said:
“my way of working with clients changed from this day forward”
“I was feeling un-inspired and disconnected – this has energised me, reminded me why I ever wanted to do therapeutic work”
“a terrific way to learn, safely, in-company, delightful”
“an excellent way to learn at your own level, a co-learning model suitable for all levels”
Niall Geoghegan, certified trainer from the CT Institute, will join us by video conference during the workshop.
Video excerpts of case studies of clients with Bruce working in the framework of emotional coherence will be shown at this workshop.
