SomatoEmotional Release 2 (SER2)

CPD/CPE- 24 Hours

Full Fee $990inc GST.

Course Description

In this workshop, SomatoEmotional Release® techniques are integrated with various creative and dialoguing methods. The emphasis is on wholeness and self-healing. The goal is a comfortable holistic mind-body approach to the resolution of problems and obstacles related to client progress and growth.

The class begins with a review of the techniques taught in CST2 to encourage the expression of suppressed emotion through release of the throat and hard palate. This is followed by an introduction to psycho synthesis and Gestalt and Jungian psychology.

By blending concepts from three schools of psychology with SER and CST, therapists learn specific techniques to help their patients increase awareness of the "inner self". Class exercises are designed to increase self-awareness by strengthening the relationship between the conscious and non-conscious mind.

The SomatoEmotional Release® process requires extreme sensitivity on the part of the therapist, and a positive attitude and trust from the patient. The SER2 workshop  offers students great insight into their patient's issues and specific techniques, enabling therapists to fine tune their dialoguing skills.
