Working at the Edge of the Unknown

with Dr Silvia Camastral

Transformation and growth happen in therapy when clients are supported to work at the edge of the unknown.

Staying in the known is comfortable but no growth happens.

But go too far into the unknown and it’s not safe enough for growth.

Finding and staying at the client’s edge between the known and unknown is an essential skillset for therapists who want to do deep work without causing harm.

In this two-and-a-half-hour online training, learn from live case demonstrations and take away clear, practical skills you can apply immediately to your work with clients.

Learn about:

  • using different methods of edge exploration and the indications for each
  • framing the experience of being at an edge
  • momentary and long-term edges
  • using different experiential channels to unfold the process at the edge
  • using of process-oriented role play
  • exploring the polarities in edges
  • how to notice signals and signal patterns at the edge.

If you’re yearning to go deeper in your work with clients but nervous about how to do it safely, this training is for you!
