The therapeutic alliance is a major factor in the success of therapeutic work – from coaching to psychotherapy, psychology to psychiatry, general practice consultations to smoking cessation services. This course is intended to inspire and train experienced therapists in new ways to utilize the Therapeutic Attachment Relationship in clinical practice. It also teaches the participants how to discern aspects of the therapeutic relationship that are usually unconscious and invisible to the untrained eye.
And the impact of this training? Our ability to spot the signals that emotional systems are activated and ready to help our clients blossom increases. Our ability to spot when we are going off track and to use ways to get back on track are more available to us.
This course focuses on the bottom-up experience of our relationships with our clients which is unique and unpredictable, and is occurring in the present moment. In contrast, top-down relies on our expected, predicted and anticipated experience of the relationship, brought from previous, and often early, experience. Separating these two can be a powerful intervention, activating neurotransmitters - oxytocin and serotonin which facilitate neuroplasticity and the goals of therapy.
Presentations and discussions teach you about CIMBS, the Therapeutic Attachment Relationship and the techniques involved in this ground-breaking therapy. Multiple demonstrations will show the actual use of the techniques with a variety of people. Expert demonstrations and practices of actual course participants, show connections and the speed of positive outcomes; they also reveal a variety of interventions which activate neurotransmitters to facilitate the therapeutic process. There are also exercises enabling you to deliberately practice the skills and techniques, to ensure you bridge your learning from this course on your computer into your practice with your clients.
