Maine Mental Health Counselors Association Annual Meeting

This workshop, Practicing a Person-Centered Paradigm, was designed to be as experiential as possible with an emphasis on skill sharing and development. Creation of a calm and completely safe space by employing powerful and precise communication skills and following specific rules of facilitation allow a client to be able to concentrate intensely on material that is often elusive or difficult to look at. We reviewed the rules and practiced communication exercises that foster predictability in a session and enable a client to confront and resolve highly-charged issues. Everyone experienced how powerful it was to be in both the facilitator seat and that of a client. It was lots of fun, too! This workshop included real-client video of trauma resolution sessions.
