|Tue, Sep 26 - Wed, Sep 27.|| Remote EMDR Grief Protocol Course - September 26, 2023 to September 27, 2023 - APA and NBCC CE Credit Hours Available - Mountain Time Zone (Colorado Time), 8006743637
Remote EMDR Grief Protocol Course - September 26, 2023 to September 27, 2023 - APA and NBCC CE Credit Hours Available - Mountain Time Zone (Colorado Time) ----- One of the questions that often comes up in EMDR consultation is how to work with grief. Some EMDR therapists avoid working with grief because they fear it might interrupt the natural grieving process, some therapists do not recognize how trauma is related to the grief, and some therapists are missing the intersectional context that keeps clients stuck in pain over generations. As EMDR therapists learn how to approach grief from a trauma-informed, evidenced-based, somatic approach, they can begin to let go of this fear and embrace helping their clients move “with” and “through” their stuck pain. In this two-day course, EMDR therapists will learn how to honor grief and loss through a client-centered and intersectional approach. Therapists will gain skills in recognizing and working with stuck grief, how to resource clients in building resiliency, develop effective treatment plans, and learn effective interweaves for stuck processing. Therapists will also explore their own experiences with grief and how to take care of themselves before, during, and after EMDR sessions ----- VISIT OUR WEBSITE TO LEARN MORE... Learn More...
|Fri, Sep 29 - Sat, Nov 4.|| Somatosensory & Experiential Movement-Based Sex Therapy Training, (720) 443-1491
Somatic-Concentric Sex Therapy Training for Counseling Students and Professionals Generally, learning about sex/ual/ity and its integral importance in intimate relationship is not a part of counseling or couples therapy curriculum. This course offers an integrated, socially-just, and trauma-informed method to support you in conceptualizing a whole-body sex/ual/ity as you counsel your clients about their intimate relationships. With the foundation of Sex Therapy with Somatic Psychotherapy and Dance/Movement Therapy, this method engages the many layers of the social self to uncover the shame and misinformation that creates wounds and stalls mind-body integration so that you can support them in total body connectivity and a securely attached relationship with their sex/ual/ity. Participants will learn to evaluate the relationship between the somatic self and social arenas that influence how we inhabit and express ourselves. This body-based learning experience will show you how to integrate the exciting and easeful aspects of sexuality with the unconscious and fractured aspects, allowing for an integrative exploration and discovery of a whole-bodied erotic self.

Existential Dialogues: The therapist in the mirror. Ten live dialogues between Prof Ernesto Spinelli and International Existential Therapists based on case studies illustrating key existential topics. 28 October “Identity" with Prof Ernesto Spinelli and Dr Yaqui Martinez “Our culture has built an idol: personal identity. From an early age we are taught (in subtle ways) to build a sense of ourselves that is stable, that shows continuity with the past, and that ensures permanence in the future. However, existence is a changing and mobile flux that constantly challenges us and demands to renew our sense of identity. What or who are we really? Can we find a way to define ourselves that can remain stable in the face of the constant changes of existence? What elements do we have to define ourselves? What does it mean to be identical with ourselves? Perhaps we need to rethink Sartre’s comment: “They say we are made of clay and mud; but rather we are made of wind” Dr Yaqui Martinez Learn More...

Existential Dialogues: The therapist in the mirror. Ten live dialogues between Prof Ernesto Spinelli and International Existential Therapists based on case studies illustrating key existential topics. 11 November “Dreams" with Prof Ernesto Spinelli and Dr Robert Romanyshyn “My approach to dreams is an imaginal one, which draws not only on the traditions of existential phenomenology and depth psychology but also on my work over the years with theatre folk. In these contexts, I regard the dream as a play performed in the night theatre of soul, staged in the far county of a different world. As such, I begin not with interpretations of what a dream might mean. Instead, I begin with the dream as a display of the possibility of possibility, and, as such, emphasise that the mood of the dream is not indicative but subjunctive, which is the sense that Freud had in describing a dream in terms of the wish, but which his method of interpretation ignored. Then, through a series of procedures developed over the years, I invite the dreamer to rehearse or try on the different characters presented in the dream by embodying and enacting them within its setting. Who does one become and how does one act in a different country? Using this approach as the first step in which the dream is making sense of the dreamer, the second step of making sense of the dream via interpretations can be taken.” Prof Robert Romanyshyn Learn More...
|Sat, Dec 2 - Sat, Dec 2.|| Existential Dialogue: "Spirituality" Prof Ernesto Spinelli and Bárbara Godoy, +44 (0) 207 289
Existential Dialogues: The therapist in the mirror. Ten live dialogues between Prof Ernesto Spinelli and International Existential Therapists based on case studies illustrating key existential topics. 2 December “Dreams" with Prof Ernesto Spinelli and Barbara Godoy “What is spirituality? Nietzsche says that with the emergence of monotheism, our imagination about opening our possibilities of being is inhibited. I had a funny conversation with a colleague from one of the CPD groups, who was upset about a certain client challenging binary gender identification. Perhaps the current emphasis on diversity is an opportunity to mobilise a different relation to spirituality. In this dialogue, I will share my reflections about the encounter with this colleague to explore my own assumptions about the tyranny of monotheism and my own perceptions about the importance of the ‘Panthe’ and the ‘Poly’ dimensions of Being. Can Spinoza’s god be a point of reference on the issue of spirituality for existential therapists? Should we consider studies of pre-monotheist traditions a valid subject or a possible foundation in existential training?” Barbara Godoy Learn More...

This class offers a thorough 60-hour certification training in Applied Existential Coaching. At the request of students who took our first class in 2022, we have added much more experiential work and breakout practice so that you leave with a thorough grounding in basic principles and interventions. If you have found that you like working online and would like to add coaching to your repertoire, this may be the class for you. Unlike therapy, which is limited by state laws, coaching can be done across state lines or actually anywhere in the world. But it is important to know the difference and to have training in coaching if you are going to do this legally and ethically. The training we are offering is an in-depth approach to existential coaching. We will talk about principles and techniques, demonstrate them, show examples from videotapes, introduce experiential exercises, and ask you to practice the approach with other students. The workshop offers a thorough grounding in theory and fundamental interventions along with a taste of what existential relational and group coaching look like. Both coaches and therapists are welcome. Participants completing the training will receive a 60-hour Certificate of Study in Applied Existential Coaching.
