Working With Character Strategies Sold Out

Working Deeply: Working With Character Strategies

Rob Fisher MFT, an international speaker, Hakomi trainer and author of the book

“Experiential Psychotherapy with Couples, A Guide for the Creative Pragmatist”.

June 10th & 11th 2017 (Saturday & Sunday)

 

THE HAKOMI CHARACTER MAP
The Hakomi Character Map training details a complete set of character strategies—patterns of behavior, feeling and cognition that determine much of what happens in our internal and external lives. Many of the most difficult issues we confront in our personal and professional lives are linked to the unconscious strategies that keep us feeling stuck, small, afraid, and unlovable, to name a few.

Changing these patterns is possible through awareness, practice and experience. The Hakomi Character Map offers a kind of precision in accurately recognizing the patterns.  In addition to detailing the character map, this training will provide practical Hakomi tools to allow for deep and permanent shifts within the psyche.

Identifying these patterns and learning how to work with them, offers psychotherapists and other helping professionals a guide to the essential issues of human growth and change.
What You Will Learn

This training will support you to recognize commonly encountered character strategies/patterns through lecture, demonstrations and experiential exercises. For each type we will explore:

Etiology/developmental causes
Underlying emotional world and core beliefs
Body language and postures
The visceral feel of each strategy from inside the experience
Strengths and positive qualities
Relational habits, trances and projections
How to apply specific Hakomi interventions for each strategy

 

From the Instructors
How we respond to life is a complex weave of emotions and beliefs often rooted in what we have learned at each developmental milestone. The experiences of early childhood shape our minds and bodies in unique yet collectively recognizable pattern. The purpose of this training is to […]

If you’re considering becoming a student in a Hakomi Training, this short description will acquaint you with the method and what you may experience. By Ron Kurtz

Here’s What You Need to Know About the Method

Hakomi is based on the idea that much of our everyday suffering is in fact unnecessary and is produced by long held, unconscious beliefs that are no longer true or relevant. The method is designed to bring such beliefs into consciousness. It’s not about talking people out of their problems. We don’t have long, speculative conversations with people about their troubles or history. A person’s emotional history—especially the part that has created the unconscious habits and beliefs with which that person meets his or her world—that history is operating right now. It is written in the way the person does things now, his style, his defining characteristics. We use those things to help the person study who he or she is. Hakomi is a method of assisted self-discovery. A Hakomi practitioner brings what are normally inaccessible mental processes—like implicit beliefs and habitual rules and attitudes—into consciousness in a gentle, efficient way. Once these processes are made conscious, emotional relief and revision of beliefs becomes possible. Old, painful experiences are integrated. Beliefs and habits are examined and modified. A more realistic and satisfying way of being begins.

As practitioners, we pay very close attention to the way a person does things. The information needed for the method to work is contained in nonconscious, nonverbal aspects of behavior, such as tone of voice, movements, gestures, posture and facial expressions. By observing these, we get ideas about what unconscious processes are controlling a person’s behavior. On the basis of these ideas and we create little experiments (often only a simple evocative statement) [1] done with the person in a mindful state. (This method of self-study requires short periods of mindfulness. Participants must be able to be calm and centered enough to observe their reactions.) Effective experiments elicit clear reactions, often emotional ones. These reactions are the links to the unconscious mental processes organizing them. These reactions are the necessary prelude to the integration and positive emotional outcomes achieved by the method.

What to Expect

The teaching method is similar to the therapy method. You can expect teaching to be primarily experiential. There will be short lectures, discussions, and demonstrations, but mostly, the group will do exercises designed to convey the ideas being presented in practical, experiential ways. These exercises sometimes bring up emotions, sometimes, very strong ones. In those situations, the trainer and the assistants know how to guide and support the process. Overall, you can expect that you will change in much the same way you would change being a client rather than a student.

What You Need to be Ready

You need to be ready to be with your own present experience. Your reactions to the exercises, some of which are done in mindfulness, need to be studied and reported to your small group partners. You need to be comfortable learning in this way, with your whole body, mind and spirit. You need to be able to stay focused on experience and you need to be ready to go into a calm, inward focused, accepting state, to let things happen that you might normally contain or avoid. You have to be willing to experience some painful emotions. These are your challenges.

There is almost no homework, although it is highly recommended that you read about the work and practice what you’ve learned, either with your fellow students or with people not in the training. The more you practice, the better.

The difference between an expert and a novice is that a novice hasn’t acquired the schemas of an expert. Learning requires a change in the schematic structures of long term memory and is demonstrated by performance that progresses from clumsy, error-prone, slow and difficult to smooth and effortless. The change in performance occurs because as the learner becomes increasingly familiar with the material, the cognitive characteristics associated with the material are altered so that it can be handled more efficiently by working memory.

The Rewards

You will learn a modern, effective scientific approach to helping people change. You will gain a deeper understanding of yourself and others and greater freedom to choose what you will do and feel. You will find greater pleasure in everyday living and will be able to develop richer, happier relationships.

Hakomi for self-care & the prevention of ‘burn-out`

October 22nd & 23rd 2016 ~ Saturday & Sunday
By Bob Milone 

As Therapists & Caregivers (psychotherapists, counsellors, bodyworkers, doctors, nurses, social workers etc.), what fundamentally empowers our work is the relationship we have with others. In this Hakomi workshop, we will use mindfulness and experiential exercises to focus on discovering what shapes our unconscious habits of relating.

It is not uncommon for those working in the helping professions to experience ‘burn-out’ at some point in their career. There is evidence that good quality relationships among team members have a direct effect on workers’ well being. This workshop is designed to help anyone at risk of burn-out to re-frame their focus with clients and team members, reducing stress and increasing efficacy.

In This multi-level workshop, we will use mindfulness to discover and explore our unconscious beliefs and behaviour patterns that cause us unnecessary stress. We will also learn to meet ourselves and others with friendliness and compassion, restoring our ability to take in and offer support. (CPD 13 hours) and find satisfaction in our work.
