328 – Right Brain to Right Brain

Embodying the Therapeutic Connection
DANIEL LEVEN

The idea that the mind and body are inextricably intertwined is widely accepted in our field, but many therapists ignore pivotal information that can be gleaned from nonverbal cues such as body language, vocal tone, and facial expressions. It’s through these cues that the client’s “emotional body” speaks and can expand their capacity to experience connection, attunement, and intimacy. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to deepen your work by:

  • Going beyond talk to access the wisdom of the right brain
  • Helping clients make connections between their emotions and physical sensations as a way of regulating stress
  • Learning a simple expressive arts process that includes mirroring your client’s key movements to deepen the therapeutic bond
