Where & When
Details provided upon registration
Ann's Demonstrations of Facilitating Focusing course is – quite simply – Ann demonstrating taking a person through Focusing who has never done Focusing before.
She does it three times... with three different Focusing beginners... and each time you can have a front row seat and then stay afterward to discuss what you saw.
Focusing can be puzzling to talk about. It can be hard to learn from a book or a video. But when someone is actually taken through the process, they get it!
People are so different! Some have a hard time feeling in the body. Others get easily overwhelmed. Others get caught up in stories. How does one help with those different issues and guide people into this remarkable process?
You might be a therapist, a coach, a counselor, or simply someone intrigued by the Focusing process. In any case, seeing Ann work with people can be inspiring and also give practical ideas you can use immediately with your clients.
What We'll Be Doing:
Each Demonstrations class is 90 minutes. Ann starts with a short talk on some aspect of offering first-time Focusing sessions. Then you'll see her (on Zoom) connecting with each person she works with, including the conversation before the session and the discussion afterward. Sessions last about 45 minutes and our guest Focusers leave the line when they're done.
This allows about 30 minutes at the end of the class meeting for a discussion of the issues raised by the process, including: the specific language used, this person’s type of Focusing process, and responses to special circumstances (e.g. working with a meditator).
You can also bring questions about any clients you're currently working with using Focusing.
Whether you're a longtime Focuser or a beginner yourself, Demonstrations of Facilitating Focusing is a helpful, experiential way to observe the Focusing process with first-time Focusers.
