What does it mean to connect to others in an in-depth way? What are the effects of relating deeply to clients in therapy, and how can such an encounter be facilitated? This workshop will give participants an opportunity to explore their experiences of relational depth, and how it feels to meet others at this level of intensity and intimacy: in both their therapeutic practice and everyday life. Through small group exercises, pairs-work, discussion and theory input, the workshop will help participants develop a deeper understanding of such encounters, and also how they come to deepen their levels of relating in their therapeutic work. The workshop combines self-development exercises, theoretical input, practical exercises, and small and large group discussion. The workshop is appropriate for training and practising counsellors, psychotherapists, counselling psychologists and other mental health professionals. CPD certificates will be provided to participants.
