In this training you will learn the factors which lead to creating alive and inspired therapy sessions regardless of theoretical orientation. Drawing from such diverse sources as indigenous wisdom traditions and modern psychotherapy approaches, this training will demonstrate how embracing improvisation and utilization can revitalize and energize therapy sessions. By understanding how circular interaction, expectancy, humor, and imaginative performance can assist clients in obtaining treatment goals, one can learn to create effective, transformational, and “magical” experiences in therapy.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe three processes in opening up interaction in counseling sessions.
  2. Discuss the use of creative therapeutic applications in diverse settings.
  3. Describe how to create attuned, synergistic relationships that are unique to each client.
