A huge difference between skill and artistry in doing therapy briefly is the ability to observe and listen with astute understanding. Noticing and then utilizing subtle non-verbal responses transmitted by the patient enhances the therapist’s credibility at deeper levels and gives him/her a distinct advantage. This workshop presents a series of experiential activities to sharpen visual and auditory sensory acuity.
