This experiential seminar will lead attendees in an exploration of mindful silence and its role in the clinical encounter. Our journey will begin with a taste of both structured and unstructured silence followed by a discussion of how both are manifested, experienced, and potentially utilized in the clinical encounter. Research related to silence in psychotherapy and recent findings in neuroscience will help explain why silence is a key ingredient in effective transformational processes.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe structured and unstructured silence, expand their understanding of how silence can be used to make therapy more experiential and be able to identify 2 techniques that can be utilized to facilitate this process.
  2. Attendees will be able to list 2 outcomes found in the research of Cook, Gendlin, Lovelady & Pinco that support the premise that silence is a key ingredient in resolution of psychological issues.
