Moving Out of the Chair: Freeing up Creative Potential in the Therapeutic Relationship
Saturday 7 December 2019 - London
With Roz Carroll, Yeva Feldman & Sissy Lykou
In this one day workshop, we will invite curiosity about the experience of moving out of the chair and integrating relational movement awareness. We will explore what holds us back and how to keep the potential for movement alive in every moment of the interaction. We will be considering this from a variety of process perspectives including embodied, somatic and kinetic countertransference. Whilst some of these terms overlap, we will differentiate, track and unpack them individually. This project is not about having an agenda to 'get the client out of the chair' but rather an enquiry into how we, as therapists limit the creative potential of movement in the therapeutic process. We will offer ways through which we can safely experiment with a variety of creative options including working with sensation, images and feelings, introducing art materials or props, designing a Gestalt 'experiment', relational improvisation and exploring rhythm and space.
