As Rob Fisher says, “This is ethics from the inside out, not the rules side in.” Indeed, you’ll find yourself engaging with ethics and issues of power in the familiar Hakomi mindful and embodied way through experientials, interesting material, great discussions, practical skills, and time to integrate.

1. Name and describe 3 types of power and why it is important to understand the differences.
2. List 3 dynamics that accompany any relationship in which there is a difference in power.
3. Describe 3 ways to mediate the shadow of power.
4. Learn and practice a 5-step method to work through conflict.
5. Demonstrate using feedback as an investment in relationship.

Designed for Current Level 1 & 2 Hakomi Students, Graduates of a Hakomi Training, and Hakomi Faculty.

How can the Unity principle inform the use of the Method with the complexity we meet in clients today? We can support interpersonal and intrapsychic communication by applying the unity principle to inform therapeutic strategy.

In this workshop, we are taking an in-depth look at how to utilize the Unity principle in moments of therapeutic choice. We will address how to work through therapeutic confusion struggle and where to go next in the session (no comma) by grounding back into mindfulness.

This workshop is a unique opportunity to learn from one of the original founding members of the Hakomi method. It is specifically designed for Hakomi trainees and therapists.

The Attachment-Informed Therapist: Relational Immediacy in Virtual and In-Person Contexts

Sundays, February 4 and 11, 2024
Online – Live from 9am to 4pm (PST)

Faculty: Donna Roy and Jessica Montgomery (bio below)

Engage your capacity to explore client attachment dynamics securely, mindfully, and experientially.

Virtual therapy options are dramatically increasing, making therapy accessible to a broader range of people, and allowing therapists to work from home. This has meant therapists have had to develop more nuanced interpersonal skills to optimize to the virtual clinical context.

At the same time, new understanding of the impact of early attachment dynamics on adult well-being is catalyzing research and deepening understanding of the foundational influence of secure relationships throughout the lifespan. Applying this awareness to the immediacy of the therapeutic process is a current challenge and opportunity for attachment-informed therapists.

Integrating attachment interventions in therapy illuminates previously unseen pathways for powerful and lasting change. Primary Attachment Therapy is a method for exploring those opportunities within the container of the immediate therapeutic relationship. Whether in an in-person or virtual context, P.A.T. uses the therapeutic relationship as a template for developing and stabilizing security in relationship to self, others, and life.

This workshop draws from Interpersonal Neurobiology, attachment theory, state-based methods, Hakomi MSP, and Primary Attachment Psychotherapy.

Designed for all levels: Prospective Hakomi Learners, Students, Graduates, CHT/P’s, and Faculty.
