This course is intended to inspire and train therapists in using the Initial Directed Activation. The initial Directed Activation sets the stage of an active and present therpaeutic attachment relationship, mobilizes high levels of emotional activation and provides relational connection and safeness.
We had planned this to be a short course, but to do this process justice we have created over 3 hours of videos with demonstrations, interviews and practices for you. Almost all videos are transcribed so that you can read and digest that which you have listened and watched. With an additional two hours of interactive questions and reflective moments; we are deliberately attending to the multiple mediums in which your learning occurs.
And the impact of this training? Creating a transparent collaborative alliance enables the patient to work effectively with high levels of activation, building on their strengths and capacity, and disentangling these from their anxiety, shame and guilt.
We will teach you about and demonstrate how to use the Initial Directed Activation. Most importantly, we will provide opportunities for you to practice and learn the Initial Directed Activation to enhance your psychotherapy practice and maximise your effectiveness.
Presentations and interviews teach you about CIMBS, the Initial Directed Activation and the techniques involved in this ground-breaking therapy. Multiple demonstrations will show the actual use of the techniques with a variety of people. 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.
