2017 HAKOMI COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING
In Hakomi Comprehensive Training Level 2, you will deepen your Hakomi skills in a supportive community, receive coaching to help you break free of unconscious patterns that limit your success when working with clients, and learn powerful therapeutic maps and strategies for making your work with clients more effective and transformative, including the Hakomi Character Map. For those who want to take their Hakomi work to both the greatest heights and depths, Level 2 of the Hakomi Comprehensive Training provides the most complete path.
This training is open to graduates of the Level 1 Hakomi Comprehensive Training, graduates of Hakomi Professional Training Level 1 and attendees of various Hakomi survey courses taught at local universities. (University students require additional prerequisites as outlined below.)
What You Will Learn
In this hands-on, experiential training, you'll learn how to:
- Deepen your skills in contact, tracking, accessing, experiments and working with the child
- Learn how to distinguish trauma from other types of developmental issues and how to best support clients with a history of trauma
- Recognize and shift limiting transference and countertransference patterns taking place between you and your clients
- Use the Hakomi Character Map to deepen your own self awareness and personal healing and strengthen your ability to be compassionately and mindfully present with your clients
- Use principles from attachment theory to strength your work
- Use the Hakomi Character Map and Sensitivity Cycle to make your client work more focused and effective
The curriculum for this training is framed around four general areas of study:
1. Enhanced Skills: We'll revisit the foundational Hakomi topics taught in Level 1 in greater depth. In addition to refining your existing skills, you'll learn sophisticated new techniques. We'll look more carefully at the ways the Hakomi Method allows clients to study present experience, you'll learn powerful somatic techniques for approaching the core of the Self, and we'll investigate in great detail how psychological change actually takes place.
2. Therapeutic Strategy and Maps: You'll learn specific and effective ways to understand and manage the overall flow of client work. This will allow you to shift from exercising instinctive, reflexive skill to makng deliberate strategic choices in supporting your clients' evolution. To support this more focused approach to client, you'll learn powerful clinical maps, including the Hakomi Character Map, the Hakomi Sensitivity Cycle and Interactive Systems.
3. The Being of the Therapist: Perhaps most importantly, Level 2 focuses lovingly on both strengthening your individual resources and examining the personal obstacles you bring to your practice. In a spirit of support and caring, we'll work to identify and resolve specific psychological material that may be limiting your effectiveness. We'll also support you to find your own distinct style and orientation to working that incorporates your unique vision and talents.
4. Integration of Other Psychological Work: To ensure that you're a well-rounded practitioner, we believe that several key psychological theories and methods are important to integrate with the Hakomi Method. Level 2 will help you to integrate and strengthen your Hakomi skills with a basic understanding of trauma work, attachment theory and a Hakomi-inspired parts work method called Re-Creation of the Self.
In this training, you'll learn through short talks, unique skill-based experiential exercises, supervised practice, demonstrations and assigned readings. You'll participate in regular supervised practice and receive supportive feedback by dedicated and knowledgeable teaching assistants. This feedback will provide opportunities to celebrate what's working, refine what needs attention, and to evolve personal edges that may be limiting your success. Our learning environment is relaxed and participatory with numerous opportunities to practice new skills with other group members, both in and out of class.
Dates subject to change.
