    #18. Structure and Impact in The Therapy Session

    #18. Structure and Impact in The Therapy Session

    "Every impactful person brings to you themselves and not needing to proof ‘how impactful I am’, ‘how smart I am’, and ‘how needed I am.’" ~ Sr Joan Chittister.
    If the therapy room is a vessel, it needs a scaffold in order for you to create a healing environment so as to help the person who is in distress.

    But how do you structure a therapeutic session so that it is impactful for your client and not get caught up with trying to be “impactful…smart…needed”?
    I want to help you solve this particular issue: How to develop a sense of structure in how you conduct therapy sessions.

    #17. Seek to be Disconfirmed (Therapy Tip of the Week #5)

    #17. Seek to be Disconfirmed (Therapy Tip of the Week #5)

    Dissonance can be a powerful ingredient for learning. How do we challenge our intuition in order to listen to our client's unspokens in order to foster a deeper connection with them?

    In this video, I recommend an exercise that I use called the "Rate and Predict," to help me open up the conversation in therapy.

    ⏳ Time Stamps:
    00:00 Introduction
    00:25: What is the Rate and Predict Exercise?
    01:25: Seeking to be Disconfirmed
    02:30: A Clinical Example

    #15. Embodied Cognition (Therapy Tip of the Week)

    #15. Embodied Cognition (Therapy Tip of the Week)

    As psychotherapists, it's easy to get lost in our heads. Our pet theories end up dominating and preventing us from being in touch with the person in front of us.
    In this Therapy Tip of the Week, I'd talk about how psychotherapists can employ principles of embodied cognition—the idea of embodiment as a way of thinking—to help you deepen your empathic understanding of your clients, especially in stuck situations.
    ⏳ Time Stamps:
    1. Intro (00:00)
    2. What is embodied cognition? A clinical example (00:42)
    3. Personal story (04:59)
    4. Related resources on embodied cognition (06:31)
    Note: Any personally identifiable information in clinical examples used are changed, in order to protect their confidentiality and privacy.

    #14. Therapy Tip of the Week: Seasons Intelligence

    #14. Therapy Tip of the Week: Seasons Intelligence

    Understanding the current season you are in helps you figure out where you are at, in order to know where you need to go. Appreciating the seasonality of your inner and outer life provides you a navigational guide as to where you need to nurture your nature. In this video, I provide a way to open a conversational doorway about this with your client, so as to provide focus and directionality of the therapeutic endeavour.

    ⏳ Time Stamps:
    1. Intro (00:00)
    2. What to ask your clients (00:59)
    3. The Season Points to the Needs (02:07)
    4. A Clinical Example (02:32)
    Note: Any personally identifiable information in clinical examples used are changed, in order to protect their confidentiality and privacy.
