Course Information

11th Annual Coherence Therapy Two-Day Intermediate Intensive Training - January 2021

Are you seeking to advance your Coherence Therapy skills together with colleagues who share your commitment to doing deep, decisively effective work?  Do you value coaching tailored exactly to your individual learning curve? 

 

In this weekend intensive, we will meet online via Zoom.  Each day of the workshop begins with a live demonstration session by one of the instructors.  Then, participants work together in small groups in Zoom breakout rooms, doing their own real sessions and taking turns as therapist, as trainers sit in to provide real-time coaching that meets you at your skill level.

 

Each practice session is followed by a whole-group debriefing of the experience that addresses any and all aspects of Coherence Therapy, before starting a new session.  It's an action learning intensive that will attune your left brain, right brain and subcortical brain for facilitating the natural process of memory reconsolidation that dissolves ingrained emotional patterns formed long ago.

 

In addition, experiencing Coherence Therapy as the client provides invaluable first-hand knowledge of the process.  Everything you learn in this workshop will be useful immediately in your own sessions on Monday.

Prerequisites for attending this workshop:  

This is not an introductory workshop. Participation is only for licensed therapists and counselors (or students in accredited graduate training programs) who are already familiar with the entire methodology of Coherence Therapy by (a) having at least several months experience using Coherence Therapy with clients and (b) having studied any of the primary texts:

 

The Coherence Therapy Practice Manual

Unlocking the Emotional Brain

Target Audience:

Psychologists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors/Marriage and Family Therapists, Creative Arts Therapists, Chemical Dependency Counselors, Educators, Nurses, Dentists

 

Course Objectives:

• Identify the specific features of experience that clients want changed (feelings, thoughts, behaviors, somatics, circumstances)

• Apply experiential techniques that bring into clients’ conscious awareness the non-conscious emotional learnings (schemas) that underlie and maintain unwanted patterns

• Distinguish the indicators of these schemas as they emerge during a session

• Create experiences that integrate the retrieved schemas into ongoing awareness

• Find a client’s vivid knowledge that specifically contradicts and disconfirms a retrieved schema

• Create an experience of the juxtaposition of the symptom-necessitating schema and the contradictory knowledge

• Inspect for the markers of transformational change
