The Constricted Body: Helping Clients Turn Around Shame, Self-Blame and Resistance
Ann Weiser Cornell, founder of Focusing Resources!
Ann is well-known in the Focusing world for her attention to the language that facilitates Focusing, applying Focusing to difficult areas such as addiction, depression, action blocks, self-criticism, and unfulfilled desire.
She is the author of two books on Focusing: her bestseller, “The Power of Focusing” and “The Radical Acceptance of Everything”.
In this webinar we will engage the following questions:
- List the signals that let us know that body constriction is coming from shame, self-blame, or resistance
- Show how to help a client move into an inner witnessing state of self-compassion
- Discuss methods for facilitating a client to turn toward a body constriction with curiosity
- Describe the kinds of relief and release that are possible through this Focusing process
