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. 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.
