M.E.T.A. weaves the classic Hakomi experiential, mindfulness-based psychotherapeutic method and the Re-Creation of the Self (R-CS) existential and state shifting model, with current interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB), attachment and trauma theories. M.E.T.A. embraces all this in an integrative framework that supports deep change. Relationship is the foundation of human development and of change in therapy. In this introductory workshop, Mindfulness, Relationship & Embodiment, offers a glimpse into the world of mindful, somatic, relational therapy. Using the Hakomi Mindful Somatic Therapy method as our base, and referencing attachment theory, participants will learn about and experience clinically applied mindfulness, explore how the body is a window into the unconscious, and practice explicit, nuanced ways to refine and enhance relational intelligence and skills.
In this dynamic workshop you will learn:
- precise techniques for applying mindfulness in counseling
- how to see the physical body as a source of psychological material
- ways to explore client relational templates and support healthy attachment This workshop is appropriate for experienced and new therapists, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, and graduate students in helping professions.
