Dancing With Dragons: Helping Clients Depolarize

Online

This workshop is intended for clinicians who are interested in the dynamic, challenging territory of couples therapy. Romantic relationships inherently hold the human dilemma that we cannot open to love without opening to where we have been wounded in love. We all have dragons. Their job is to protect the gold; in the most fundamental sense, the continued existence of our essential self. Our dragons protect our wounded hearts. We might say dragons continue to breathe fire until the core wound they are protecting is recognized. In this way, the dragon dance is a call for mutual healing.

Integrating the Self Workshop

Heart Source Center 1600 Shattuck Avenue Suite 125, Berkeley

The Power of Presence and Community in Cultivating Self-Compassion

A Day-Long Workshop Developed & Facilitated by: Galia Schechter, PhD

This workshop was created for clinicians who are interested in the dynamic, challenging territory of couples' therapy. Along with helping clinicians more effectively navigate that territory, the workshop also offers insights into our own journeys of intimacy. We begin with the human dilemma that we cannot open to love without opening to where we have been wounded in love. We all have dragons: their job is to protect the gold; in the most fundamental sense, the continued existence of our essential self.

The following themes are explored utilizing didactic elements and case material reinforced by experiential exercises and demonstrations:

The necessity that intimate partners must encounter each other's core wounds.
The inevitability of the experience of betrayal and the archetypal relationship between, trust, betrayal, and forgiveness.
Collaborative approaches to the essential task of repair.
Intimacy as a container for deep healing and ground for individuation.
