The Lancaster Chapter of PSCSW presents: Weaving the Experiential Approach Into Your Talk Therapy Session

The Lancaster Chapter of PSCSW presents:

Weaving the Experiential Approach Into Your Talk Therapy Session

Date:   Saturday, February 29th, 2019
Time:  9am-12pm | 3 CEUs (Please arrive at 8:30 am for refreshments)
Place:  Lancaster Friends Meeting 110 Tulane Terrace, Lancaster, Pa.

Traditional talk psychotherapists are becoming increasingly interested in the value of experiential therapies and how they can bring these approaches into their therapy rooms – especially when they haven’t had extensive training in experiential skills.

The experiential approaches – including the principles of psychodrama – can deepen a person’s experience of the issue and enliven sessions when the client is feeling stuck, repeatedly talking about the same material.

In this workshop, Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, will show and tell how to weave experiential techniques and principles into a setting where they are not necessarily the therapist’s primary mode of treatment and demonstrate some simple and yet effective ways to enliven therapeutic situations.

Clinical Objectives:

  1. Identifying the value of the experiential approach.
  2. A brief overview of neurobiology and how it relates to experiential psychotherapies.
  3. How to select the most clinically useful and safe experience for the client.
  4. Ways to warm up the client to the experience.
  5. Learning the role play technique of doubling.
