Have you ever thought about taking a client outside? Walking, sitting in a forest, or wading through a stream? Therapy has been challenging this past year as we have begun to experience sessions outside of the traditional office space. We are looking for tools that support us as therapists and settings that are conducive to positive change.
Physical movement and talk therapy in the great outdoors are powerful components; in this modality we call ‘walk and talk’. But how can you do this safely? What are some ways to engage clients in a more natural setting? How will the dynamics of the therapeutic relationship shift? What kind of person might engage in walking therapy? And how do you address issues of confidentiality while on the trail?
This webinar will cover concerns therapists may have about being in an open-air office and provide insights on how to move forward in this novel approach to therapy. Your journey into a new modality will certainly elicit questions and spark your curiosity.
