Special Topics and the Role of the Therapist
This 4-day training explores further details of working with “process,” for both you and your clients.
Participants need to take NP 1 and 2 before taking this training, as we expand on that foundation. (It is not required to take NP 3 or 4 to attend.)
We will again use a combination of presentation, discussion, exercises, demonstrations, and longer practicum sessions with personalized feedback. We will also do more short role plays, where you can bring in tough moments from your sessions. We will explore ways to approach, assess and work through them.
As with previous trainings, we focus on fine-tuning engagement with somatic processes, close tracking of nervous system reactions and resiliency, and judicious use of EMDR and other uses of bilateral stimulation.
As before, we will engage in “trusting the process” of the drive for completion.
