The utilization of body work and improvisational theater can be employed for different therapeutic purposes.  In a therapy group with sexually abused survivors, it is a useful tool in the tradition of Ericksonian therapy.  Since sensory body work and improvisational theater elements are excellent tools to absorb the patients’ attention in an equally structured and playful way, they become actors and creators of their new body experience.  This is an experiential workshop.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Explain the application of improvisational theater as a playful, active trance induction.
  2. Utilize a repertoire of short vignettes that are useful for therapeutic work in a group.

Claudia Weinspach, Dipl. Psych's Profile

Claudia Weinspach, Dipl. Psych Related Seminars and Products

As a Psychology Psychologist and Approbierte Psychological Psychotherapist I am since 1999 in Münster established in private practice. At the same time, since 1995 I have been working for 17 years (until 3/2012) in the "Beratungsstelle Zartbitter Münster eV", a counseling service for victims of sexualised violence. My current focus is above all in the field of modern hypnosis, which I individually use in coaching and in the treatment of mental illness.

After having learned and practiced various additional psychological training courses (behavioral, conversation and body therapy as well as couple therapy), I have now put hypnosis at the center of my advisory and therapeutic work. It offers - like no other process - a colorful bouquet of application possibilities for almost all areas of life in a mixture of economic effectiveness and individually tailored processes. It is equally suitable for the solution of a limited problem or achievement of a set goal as well as for the successful treatment of diseases. I combine modern hypnotherapy with elements of indigenous shamanic traditions and music.
