About the workshop:

The capacity for presence is always already part of human experience and unfolds within the relational situation. It is our capacity to fluidly respond, giving and receiving, in order to gain something new from the environment.

This 75-minute interactive webinar will illuminate the moving-feeling foundation required for a developing presence as it emerges or is thwarted within both the baby-parent and patient-therapist dyad.

Therapists learn how to enhance the potentiality for developing presence in themselves and their patients and, in doing so, to clear the obstacles that prevent us from finding each other. Special attention is given to the online therapy situation.
