Working Creatively with Parts of Self: Developing a Dialogue
A workshop to explore the theory of plural selves providing therapists with a toolkit of skills to work creatively with clients.
A stimulating and interactive workshop to explore the theory of plural selves and looking at creative ways to work with the client’s experience of internal voices using imagination, metaphor and tools around us to facilitate identification of, and conversation between, parts of self.
Many psychological and therapeutic traditions recognise and discuss the ways in which our experiencing of ourselves can be problematic, troublesome and conflicted. From the id, ego and super-ego in psychodynamic traditions to Rogers’ structure of self concept, there are many ways to help our clients describe and explore their internal world. Conflict between parts can be at the heart of emotional distress, anxiety and depression.
This workshop will:
- Outline some of the theory behind pluralism and parts
- Develop understanding of how conflict between parts can be explored
- Show how insight can create space for dialogue and conversation between parts
- Demonstrate how using imaginative techniques can unlock the client’s ability to reduce and resolve conflict to create more harmony
- Present examples of these techniques in therapy
The aim is to add further skills to your therapeutic toolbox, enhance your therapy practice and engage your imagination.
