Description

This dynamic workshop offers participants the opportunity to learn how to effectively apply Chair- Work along with several other complementary and powerful methods (based on psychodrama and Gestalt therapy techniques). These methods may be easily adapted into existing practice as interventions with the capacity to enhance the therapeutic work with individuals and with couples.

You will learn when and how to effectively use specific Action Methods including: Empty Chair in it’s varying forms, Role Reversal, Doubling, and Maximising - the latter being useful for increasing awareness of body language and emotions. You will also learn how to work with client resistances to these approaches.

Ari will introduce each of these with a demonstration of the technique, information on when and how to use them, and then participants in pairs and triads will have the opportunity to practise them in role-play simulations with Ari available for guidance and consultation. Following each practise session, there will be discussion of 'areas of difficulty', and questions before proceeding to the next technique.
