What it’s all about: You will learn the skills of listening to adults and Children in a Focusing way, working with creative expression and non-verbal communication. The central goal is to achieve authentic contact and open connection with both others and self through simple, structured exercises. Topics are: working with Attachment Disorder and Trauma; Exploring your own Inner critical process and Living forward energy. And how to transfer all of this is to Parents, Teachers and Institutions. We will use all kind of different creative ways to explore this process.

What to expect: An international group of participants who are interested in the tools and techniques of the (Children) Focusing process, an inherently gentle, playful approach of Experiential practice. You will develop an understanding of personal bodily felt life experience from both theoretical and practical perspectives. You will experience a model of facilitation which creates a safe environment with clear boundaries that respect the need for privacy and vulnerability inherent in much of childhood & adolescent experience. Integrating this experiential dimension into your work will also bolster your own resilience and self-care increasing energy and decreasing burn out!
