Most therapies rely on talk, leaving us to hope that the clients will “get it” and move on. Increasingly, studies show real change can be more effectively attained through engaging parts of the brain that are not accessible through talking only. Impact Techniques will give you practical and stimulating tools that can transform abstract ideas and complex difficulties into clear, concrete, and easily understood metaphors and behavioural responses.
Through multisensory engagement, you will learn how to work with the entire neuronal network in order to identify, understand, and resolve many of the problems your clients face. Impact Techniques are designed to imprint new habits, skills, and insight onto the body’s memory for desired change.
This 2-day workshop will equip you with over 80 innovative Impact Techniques. This approach is frequently considered to be a form of brief therapy because its techniques have the potential to simultaneously combine the processes of assessment, treatment, and implementing next steps.
Impact Techniques can be applied in a wide range of settings: individual as well as group therapy; for adults, couples, families, teens, and children; in clinical settings as well as in schools. These specific yet versatile interventions can be integrated into your practice the very next day.
