This optional practicum day for participants in the Strengthening Authentic Self Workshop provides participants opportunity to practice the strategies for effective creation of safe place and Higher Power, resource team work and time orientation, negotiation with internalized parent and protector/controller, creation of new inner attachment experiences, resourcing adult state, and creation of a new bonding contract. Participants will target countertransference issues to improve capacity for providing an emotionally corrective relationship.
Participants will be able to implement Standard Protocol more safely with complex clients through “contained reprocessing” and will be able to utilize cognitive interweaves to access internal support of the restructured system. Participants will have opportunity to practice the standard protocol while incorporating effective interweaves.
