Speaker: Rebecca Davies
Workshop Title: How to work with the body in clinical practice
About the workshop :
This will be a practical workshop, looking to enhance participant therapeutic skills and offer ways to work with clients. Rebecca will be inviting participants to get to know their own bodies, in this experiential and skills based introduction to working with the body. As a group we shall consider ways in which we may invite our clients to access their unconscious processes and express the unexpressed via working with the body. Rebecca will introduce some brief theory, before participants are given the chance to practice some of the skills directly with one another and if time, Rebecca will demonstrate the approach in a fishbowl exercise.
A highly practical and experiential workshop, for those interested in understanding more about the clinical side of integrating the mind and body.
The focus will be on the psychotherapy and counselling fields, although open to anyone interested in getting in touch with their own bodies more.
