Event description

Description

We’re all familiar with the idea of talking through our problems. But did you know research shows that how you talk can be more important than what you say?

Join the JFK University Holistic Counseling Psychology Program for an evening with acclaimed scholar and author Ann Weiser Cornell, as we delve into the process of Focusing and the ways in which psychotherapists can use Focusing to help clients achieve lasting change. Have you ever experienced one of those “Aha!” epiphany moments when remembering something temporarily forgotten or having a sudden realization? These are examples of “felt senses”, and they represent crucial events in an individual’s attainment of greater self-knowledge.

The Focusing process is designed to facilitate the occurrence of felt senses, thereby furthering a client’s progress. During this program, Ms. Cornell will discuss the latest research on the psychotherapeutic benefits of Focusing and felt sense, as well as the Focus-based methods for encouraging felt sense in one’s clients.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see in person at JFK University a leading innovator in the practice of Focusing, as she leads us through an exploration of the ways in which psychotherapists can use Focusing to better serve their clients and themselves.

Hosted by the Somatic Psychology Program
