About the workshop:
This 75 minute interactive WEBINAR will explore the progressions of a developing subjectivity from kinetic-kinesthetic processes during fetal life, where the organism is in a state of “oneness” with its environment, to the newborn child, who begins the gradual process of differentiating “me” from “not me” in the first year.
Special emphasis will be given to the functional similarity of this vital experiential shift in relation to the subtle yet profound existential experiences emerging within adult therapy. How to attend to kinetic-kinesthetic progressions in session to clarify the experience of subjectivity for patient and therapist will be discussed.
This WEBINAR presents my latest thinking in terms of a more complete understanding of the processes of development – how we come to be and maintain who we are in relation – from a Gestalt theoretical perspective and our Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy Approach.
How the WEBINAR works interactively:
Participants will be able to submit written questions as the lecture portion proceeds. I will respond to as many questions and comments as possible, allowing time for dialogue among us.
I hope you will be as interested as I am in this new form of our coming together. It is an experiment and we will see how it emerges!
