Flyer for May workshop: CoherenceTherapy_GlenburnVIC _Workshop2014-May15-18Flyer_FINAL

Coherence Therapy Workshop –

15-18th May 2014, Yarra Valley, Victoria

The basis of Coherence Therapy is the principle of symptom coherence. This maintains that presenting symptoms clients experience as undesirable and out of their control are actually sensible, cogent, orderly expressions of their implicit knowings about self or the world.  Presenting symptoms are not considered to be a disorder or pathology, rather, compelling unconscious solutions to unconscious dilemmas. Memory Reconsolidation processes are actively targeted and engaged.

This 3 day intensive will promote beginner and intermediate-level skill building through active participatory learning.  In line with the central approach of Coherence Therapy, the emphasis of this workshop will be on direct experiential learning.  This will be interwoven with live sessions with peers from the growing Australian CT practitioner community.

Niall Geoghegan, Psy.D, Coherence Therapy Trainer, will be joining by Skype for an hour of the workshop.

In this workshop you will learn how to create the powerful experiential exercises that make CT so effective.  Real-time input from peers and the intermediate level peer-coaches will sharpen the crucial skills of creating vivid and powerful Symptom Deprivations, Overt Statements, Sentence Completions and more. This will be augmented throughout the workshop by didactic presentations, Q&A, and processing of participants’ experiences.
