Event description

Description

The greatest tool we have in therapy is the relationship occurring in real time during the session. Everything else is just a story. Although the stories our clients tell are important, they are second hand, indirect information. Gestalt therapy gives us a framework and tools to bring client issues into the moment where they can be dealt with head-on. No where is learning to deal with issues directly more important than in the treatment of addiction. The cycle of addiction is the ongoing self-medication of feelings rather than direct contact and resolution with the problems that create that pain. This workshop will teach participants how to look at addiction and early recovery from a Gestalt lense and lead clients in breaking out of this cycle. Although relevant to work with all clients, it will emphasize the use of group therapy.

This is an experiential CEU workshop and will involve active participation in an group experience. Participants may experience moments of intentionally created emotional discomfort as part of this experience and are asked to take this into consideration when deciding whether to attend.
