We often use terms like hard-hearted to describe those who can’t seem to feel empathy or connect to their own emotions, forgetting that the roots of open-heartedness grow out of safe and loving relationships early in life. Emotionally disconnected clients often flee from the deepening we try to facilitate in therapy because their bodies simply don’t know how to do empathy.
Watch Janina Fisher as she breaks-down the relationship between trauma and memory and their effects on how your clients feel their emotions. In this workshop, discover simple ways of helping clients have more open, connected, heartfelt experiences and learn how to integrate them into your practice! Additionally, Janina Fisher will also outline a variety of psychotherapeutic approaches that will help your client understand their emotions and help them move forward from their past trauma experiences.
