On Three Modes Of Focusing In Therapy and The Experiencing Scales with Akira Ikemi, Ph.D.
The outline of Dr.Ikemi's presentation is both systematic and flowing delivery of what feels like a a continuing story full of interesting twists, references to history, art, philosophy, psychology, and activities that touch and resonate deeply. As the producer of this DVD I tried to help the viewer experience this flow. Many methods for genuine deep inner guidance and healing are blended with music, texts, and photography into a gem of Akira's brilliance and artistry.
The DVDs are arranged in this way:
DVD1: ON THREE MODES OF FOCUSING IN THERAPY- A reflection how I do FOT
PART I Explication / symbolization
IA Experiential Collage Work (ECW)
IB On Listening and the Manner of Experiencing
PART II : Clearing a space (CAS)
PART III: Teaching
Beautiful stories and memorable references are skillfully interwoven in this
DVD ; A live demonstration of CAS; Beautiful Haiku; Revisiting the Myth of
Narcissus and Echo; Collage work by Dr. Ikemi's clients and participants
illustrates the rich sources of healing and many, many mini focusing skills.

DVD 2 THE EXPERIENCING SCALES
This DVD is dedicated to a single topic - THE EXPERIENCING SCALES. Originally envisioned by Carl Rogers to objectively measure what happens in therapy, Klein, Mathieu, Gendlin and Kiesler developed The Experiencing Scales in 1970. Dr Ikemi explains, teaches and gives examples how this treasure can be used in therapy, in teaching counselling, and listening skills. We hope that this disc will be of special interest to FOT/Focusing therapists, other Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapists, AND also to large field of psychotherapist in general.
