What you will learn: Authenticity Therapy©
During this Retreat you will receive thorough training in Authenticity Therapy©, a new integration, umbrella framework, and treatment protocol that predicates mental health on a positive self-parenting. It is based on seven years of rigorous research on what works in psychotherapy.
AT is a four-step body centered framework, assessment tool, and clinical protocol. It shortens the duration of treatment, and streamlines the process of therapy by focusing it on the sequence of the four practices that are both necessary and sufficient for positive self-parenting.
AT fosters self-awareness, self-responsibility (internal locus of control), and responsiveness (as opposed to reactivity) to stress. It can also be taught to clients as a self-help protocol.
Because relationships are defined, by extension by the self-parenting style we are using AT is highly applicable to the treatment of couples and families: systems manifest the same style of communication that their members use with themselves.
This training is based on my book Apple of My I: The Four Practices of Self-Love.
Participants will be introduced to the basic principles of the AT framework, by learning:
- Philosophy and tenets underlying Authenticity Therapy©
- The four components of healthy self-parenting (lecture and experiential learning)
- Tools and skills entailed in therapist’s self-help as well as treating clients with this modality
- The 5 stages of treatment in AT
- Brief, Solution Oriented Trauma Resolution – 6 hours of the training will be dedicated to this highly effective method to extinguishing body memory of trauma. Effective trauma resolution is an integral part and a pre-requisite for positive self-parenting.
