Power and connection – with Kirsteen Greenholm
‘When we trust that we are the ocean, we are not afraid of the waves.’ – Tara Brach
Experiencing power as flowing from and through relational connection can enhance our vitality, confidence, humility, authenticity and effectiveness. It can facilitate a deeper respect for others and for co-created emergent change. With an integrated embodied awareness of power dynamics in the therapeutic relationship, we can work more potently, respectfully and ethically. This workshop will support therapists to bring power processes further into their awareness. We will explore how therapist and client experiences of power are mutually influenced through co-transference, societal/cultural influences and the therapeutic task/contact. This mainly experiential workshop is suitable for therapists and trainees from all modalities.
Location: Edinburgh Gestalt Institute.
Dates: 27-28 August 2016.
Cost: £225 including a non-refundable deposit of £95.
