Come explore ethical questions in a refreshing, unique, and immediately useful way!
This lively, multimedia course makes use of easily understandable and broadly applicable aspects of attachment theory and experiential therapy itself to support an authentic, flexible, and compassionate way of being deeply ethical in your therapy practice. You'll learn via a dynamic combination of video lecture, embedded guest-teaching videos, and readings.
Modern therapy modalities are experiential in nature. And for good reason. Therapies that bring direct attention to the body, to sensations, to the right-brain-to-right-brain connection with the therapist are powerful and effective. These experiential therapies help us create new, vivid experiences for our clients--lived experiences that are crucial to healing trauma and rewiring the brain.
When we work with clients in these close-in ways, we’re inviting our clients to be extremely vulnerable so they can gain access to the deepest levels of healing. So it’s important that we have a method for behaving ethically in ways that are in alignment with each client’s individual needs. When we rotely apply rules in thoughtless, rigid ways, we're not creating safety and we're not attuned.
Instead, experiential therapy requires us to make ethical decisions in a thoughtful, integrated way. In this warm and engaging multimedia course, you will learn a thoughtful decision-making process that will help you to apply ethical codes of conduct in kind, warm, attuned, and healing ways. Every session. Every day.
