Focusing, Psychotherapy & The Implicit
a 5-week course on CDs
with Eugene Gendlin & Ann Weiser Cornell
Focusing, Psychotherapy & The Implicit is a course to support psychotherapists and other healing professionals in being with their clients in a Focusing-oriented way. This is a slightly edited version of a live, interactive, 5-week phone course with the legendary author of Focusing and one of his most well known students.
Focusing is a process that has been linked in over 50 research
studies with successful outcomes in psychotherapy. Research has shown
that successful therapy clients make contact with a felt sense
– a murky, hard to describe, more-than-words experience that is broader
and vaguer than emotion. With a certain quality of attention, felt
senses can “come into focus” and bring fresh insights and new behavior.
• Being a peaceful therapist – one who knows how to move the process forward
• Effective ways to help a client move past being stuck
• What to do about clients who seem unable or unwilling to go into body awareness
• How to listen for and support the life-forward energy in the client’s process
Format: Set consists of 5 full-length audio CDs.
Note: CDs were recorded during an actual phone seminar and have been edited. Sound quality may vary.
T. Gendlin is a groundbreaking philosopher as well as a
psychotherapist who has been honored four times by the American
Psychological Association for his development of Experiential
Psychotherapy. His widely influential book, Focusing, has sold
over 500,000 copies and is in seventeen languages.
Ann Weiser Cornell was getting her PhD in Linguistics at the University of Chicago when she met and learned Focusing from Eugene Gendlin.
