Event description
From the Gestalt empty chair to the healing power of music and lyrics—explore the creative power of interweaves to use with your clients.

About this event

The Vegas Strong Resiliency Center invites its collaborative providers to a free, virtual EMDR training about how to use cognitive interweaves that can be directly applied to your practice. The trainers will review the concept of the cognitive interweave drawing from the most current EMDR therapy training and when it will be helpful to use one or more interweaves with your client. This one-day training (worth 6 EMDRIA credits) is appropriate for all levels of EMDR-trained clinicians.

What do Francine Shapiro, Stevie Wonder, Fritz Perls, Ray Charles, Bill W., Gloria Gaynor, and George Harrison have in common? This workshop seeks to answer this question and to explore the dynamic and creative power of cognitive interweaves as manifested via the Gestalt empty chair and through the interpersonal resonance of music and lyrics.

In addition, the workshop will explore resonance, biofields, and how these transpersonal ways of experiencing the client work will shape and enable the discovery of uniquely individualized cognitive interweaves. Participants will engage in a practicum and be encouraged to utilize their personal creativity in developing creative cognitive interweaves for current clients. The Gestalt empty chair will be used to demonstrate and bring to life the cognitive interweave. Selected music will be played to demonstrate ways that the trainers have helped clients make deeper and more resonant connections with the interweaves.
