Dancing the Inner Body: Tuning In, Being Moved: Exploring the Unconscious Through Movement

Facilitators: José Castilho & Jessica Cottee

In this experiential workshop, Jessica and José show how Butoh can be used by Psychotherapists to explore different ways of expression, with the body as a living entity as the raw material. Through transformation – one of the most important elements of Butoh – the body plays with surreal themes and androgynous forms with total disregard to the intentional creation of beautiful movements; instead dancers express primal human conditions. Movement in Butoh starts deep inside the flesh and bones until it breaks on the skin of the dancer, as the unconscious finds its expression into consciousness through movement. For that reason, Butoh movements can tap into both physiological and emotional aspects of the body, embrace the entirety of time lived from birth, and arise from intuition or spirituality. “The manifestation of these inner elements and transformation from one to another are not expressed through techniques; rather, they have already been present within the dancer’s body and are actualized out of their dormancy.” (Masaki Iwana, Essays on the Art and Philosophy of Butoh) Jessica and José will guide participants to experience their own physical expression of hidden inner elements through a day of Butoh.

Jessica Cottee is an IAHIP pre-accredited counsellor and psychotherapist, who trained at Dublin Counselling and Therapy Centre and currently works with adults in private practice. With a background in languages and a passion for dance, she is curious about the ways of bringing a form to sensations and using creative practices as a vehicle for expressing uniqueness.

IAHIP Autumn Workshops

Last Call for Participants for this Weekends Workshops

Saturday 22/09/18 Workshop 2 Just Say ‘YES’ – Applied Improvisation Comedy

Maureen Levy

The old saying that ‘Laughter is the best medicine’ is born of the fact that humour reduces stress levels and improves mental health. Working therapeutically with any individual mirrors the improvisational comedy approach. It is two or more people cooperating in a process that is uncertain. There will be unexpected twists and turns that each party must adapt to, in order to work toward a satisfying conclusion. The skills of managing this process are very similar to those of the Improvisor.
Stress is due to the perception that our skills and abilities are not sufficient to meet the demands placed on us. Humour will adjust these perceptions by offering us a new view of our skills. Appropriate humour also can be used effectively in therapy, as it can help clients have an “Aha” moment as their perspective on a situation shifts.

Using the basic rules of Improvisational comedy, this workshop will introduce therapists to the basic techniques of Applied Improvisational Comedy in order to expand their creativity and flexibility with their client work, and also bring great joy and laughter into their own lives.
This workshop is experiential and fun, teaching us to listen and be fully present in the moment. It is deeply profound and transformational work that continuously positively impacts the lives of everyone who has participated.

Diamond Approach Ireland

Diamond Approach Ireland

The Diamond Approach offers an experiential understanding and awareness of our personality and of our deeper nature. It is an open approach, welcoming people where they are and helping them take the next steps appropriate to their own personal, unique development. The Diamond Approach grew out of, and in response to the needs of people leading ordinary lives in our current Western culture. It is an evolving path of self-realization and human maturity based on an original synthesis of modern discoveries in the field of psychology and a new paradigm about spiritual nature.

“The Diamond Approach is a superb combination of some of the best of modern Western psychology with ancient (and spiritual) wisdom. I recommend the Diamond Approach as probably the most balanced of the widely available spiritual psychologies/therapies” Ken Wilbur from the cover of “The Unfolding Now”

“A masterpiece of integration of both the spiritual and psychotherapeutic traditions which is essential material for anyone concerned with helping others to develop a deeper sense of personhood or to liberate themselves from the repetition compulsion to suffer that defines the neurotic condition” David Boadella from the cover of “Pearl beyond Price”

An ongoing group has formed that uses the in-depth experiential teachings of the DA to support the self realization and development of the group and of its individual members. The group meets in a weekend format four times a year and is still open to new participants. The meetings are held in Castletown, Port Laoise. The teaching team is led by Jim Terrien together with John Smalenskas and Breda Perrem, two teachers resident in Ireland who also carry out ongoing individual session work with Diamond Approach students.

Our next weekend will continue our focus on true …read more

Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples – Level 1

Four Day Training Workshop
Presented by Rhonda Goldman, PhD

  • Marino Institute of Education, Marino Dublin
  • 10am – 5pm, 3rd – 6th July, 2018
  • €675 (€625 early bird bookings made before 31/03/2018)

Training is open to counselling/clinical psychologists and accredited psychotherapists/counsellors

Prior training in EFT or EFT for Couples is not required.
The Institute of Emotion-Focused Therapy Ireland is proud to host an intensive four-day workshop in Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples, led by Rhonda Goldma. Building on the latest research conducted by Dr. Goldman, Les Greenberg and colleagues, this training will provide participants with in-depth skills training through lectures, video demonstrations, modelling and supervised role-playing practice.

Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy focuses on the emotional bond between a couple and on each partner’s emotional experience, attachment longings, needs, and fears as well their needs for validation of their identities. EFT strives to uncover how each partner reacts emotionally to events that cause negative interactional patterns. These patterns are seen as being created when partners express secondary emotions, often anger, rather than openly expressing their primary emotions and needs, such as their basic attachment fears and needs, shame at self esteem injury, and needs for validation of their identity. The fractured emotional bond is healed by identifying negative interactional cycles that dominate the couple’s interaction and transforming these by means of the expression of primary attachment and identity related emotions. The essential goal of EFT is the creation of new, healthy patterns of interaction by using emotion to restructure interactions.

This workshop constitutes one of the steps towards certification as an EFT Couples therapist. See here for training standards: http://www.iseft.org/Standards-for-couples

Rhonda N. Goldman, PhD, is a professor at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Schaumburg and a therapist affiliate of the Family Institute at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois where she conducts psychotherapy with both couples …read more
