You’d be surprised just how experiential Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can be. Come play and learn some new frames that just may inspire more flow and creativity with your enactments and invitations.
We will explore ways for experiential and process based therapists to adapt and take inspiration from methods and principles from two forms of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy TEAM-CBT and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
The class will briefly introduce Buddhist psychology and how it can be applied in psychotherapy, particularly utilizing the tenets of releasing attachment to outcomes and allowing the present moment to unfold with clients.
