In this workshop we will learn how to provide effective experiential treatment rather than offering didactic information or treatment protocols. We can enter the patient’s phenomenological world -- even with the most difficult patients. Lilian Borges will demonstrate an integrative approach that is brief, experiential, phenomenological, and effective. Therapist sculpting allows the therapist attune to the client’s experience; empathize with them; help the client to disengage from the problem; focus on what is important; and help the client discover new possibilities.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe how to engage the client in therapist sculpting.
  2. Describe two uses of therapist sculpting with a difficult therapeutic situation.
  3. List the long-term benefits to the patient using the experiential method.
