We have had some inquiries from our USA friends with regards to our training workshop in March and how well that fits in their time zones. See the picture below to get an idea. For the US west coast – San Fransisco and Los Angeles the date and time are really suitable.
After training in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), our EMDR consultant said Parts Therapy would be both beneficial and necessary in his experience.
We attended the Ego State Therapy training run by Professor Gordon Emmerson PhD.
Logically in the workshop one could see the value in working with the personality parts associated with our issues directly.
Brief and effective interventions are vital in today’s society, as clients expect fast, long lasting, results.
The problem was Ego State Therapy was not easy to follow. With no clear sequences or protocols to guide clinicians in treating client problems.
We explained, read complained!
Developing Resource Therapy in response.
Clear protocols, systems and actions based on Resource Therapy’s Therapy of personality to facilitate change.
A guide for therapists to assisting unburdening our clients from the overwhelming issues they bring into our offices.
Parts work fits in beautifully with EMDR. Those who know Jim Knipe, Laurel Parnell, Robin Shapiro, Janina Fisher, Sondra Paulson and Maggie Phillips will be familiar with the concept. All legends in the psychology and trauma healing field.
Internal Family Systems folk will know the power of parts.
Resource Therapy bears some similarities and differences to IFS, Ego State and the others. Watch this space for that article.
And easy addition to your empathic health and well being practice.
Resource Therapy fits in easily and seamlessly to your tool kit.
Its great combined in your artists palette with Mindfulness, ACT, EFT, EMDR, couples work and Imago Therapy.
It’s that simple.
For those who use EMDR you would have seen parts popping out in processing. With a little tweak Resource Therapy can fast track looping, adding an interweave and working with dissociation easily.
Plus it’s fun.
Staying within our clients Window of Tolerance shifts happen quickly resolving long held issues. Clients report a sense of freedom and lightness.
RT is super practical.
In our two day training you will be up and running with these powerful techniques. Applying them in your next client session.
Here’s the web page for our next workshop. Love to have you join us March 30/31 Sydney https://resourcetherapy.com.au/resource-therapy-foundation-training-online-philipa-thornton-sydney/
Hi guys, have been over to the USA scouting possible locations for bringing Resource Therapy to America.
I loved my visit. Las Vegas was a hoot and so hot!! Thank you to the America people too. Everyone was so kind, polite and friendly.
Attending a Michele Weiner-Davis workshop – a couple therapy legend and new friend. Michele is super talented at bringing out the best state to progress marriages on the brink. So exciting to learn her Solution Oriented model, a further development of brief Solution focused therapy. I did training back in the day with Brian Cade and bought his book he wrote with Bill O’Hanlon – A Brief guide to Brief Therapy.
Click the book picture to see the book on Amazon.
As many of you know Chris and I run Marriage Works and if you want more info and For Michele’s books please click this link.
So we are thinking of different USA locations – love to hear your recommendations please. It’s looking like 2020 to return in 2021. Most likely we will do the Clinical training in two five day units.
How glorious to see wildlife in the wild. Truly one of my favorite things to do. Pretty pleased it wasn’t a bear or a rattlesnake though!
Love to hear your thoughts and comments – please spread the word. So happy to chat to folks who wish to know more about Resource Therapy and how it will benefit your client work. It’s a brief parts therapy perfectly adaptable to your preferred therapy model – I know we get attached to our learnings and fair enough.
Thanks for reading. Glad the Sydney winter weather has been kind. The Mojave desert was getting up to 118 Fahrenheit, melting point for me at 47 Celsius!
