This consultation group is for people who are interested in having perhaps difficult or uncomfortable conversations around difference with regards to race and privilege in the therapy room. Our hope is that this group will provide clinicians an opportunity to uncover possible blind spots and biases around differences and to work through situations or hiccups that we may have encountered in relationship to our clients and maybe our daily lives. Through direct conversation in a brave and safe space we will discuss topics/behaviors that may cause us hesitation in our conversations or with questioning our clients. Further, we will work together to formulate narrative language that may help us to access the unknown with our clients.
We will meet live online for an hour and a half, monthly for 6 consecutive months. The fee is $390. Group beginning in January 2019 with specific schedule to be determined.
Are you interested in exploring an affective-discursive approach to clinical work that integrates EMDR Therapy and somatic-oriented practices with a Narrative Therapy both philosophically and practically?Topics will include: Relational Constructionism, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Memory Theory, The Social Construction of Memory, The Affective-Discursive Turn, and Poetic Imagination. Through didactic presentation, experiential exercises and client tales, this training group will explore what becomes possible when we create different kinds of scaffolding using sensations, images and memories in non-discursive ways. We will meet 1 1/2 hours via Zoom on the first Thursday of the month (11:00 am – 1:00 pm NY time) starting February 7, 2019 (6 consecutive months).
Note: This larger training group can be taken in combination with the smaller Em-BODY-ing Conversations Consultation Group.
This consultation group is limited to 12 mental health workers or educators who have had experience with either EMDR or Somatic-Oriented Therapies in addition to a Narrative Therapy approach.Through didactic material and sharing tales of our work with those who consult us, we will explore what becomes possible when we create different kinds of scaffolding using sensations, images/visual metaphors and memories in non-discursive ways. Some registrants will have participated in the 2017 Em-BODY-ing Conversations Consultation Group. Experienced practitioners can sign up for this consultation group while concurrently taking the Em-BODY-ing Conversations Training Group. Group scheduled to start February 21, 2019 (6 months) – or as soon as the group fills – on the third Thursday of the month for 90 minutes, 11 am – 12:30 pm New York time. $390.
Do you have ideas for future Consultation Groups? Is there something about the existing groups that you wish could be different?
We are developing these customized consultation opportunities in response to stated wishes by practitioners in the Reauthoring Teaching learning community. While we cannot incorporate all ideas, we will listen carefully to requests and earnestly do our best to keep growing resources to support our growing edges.
