Professional Training in Hakomi Mindfulness-Based Experiential Psychotherapy San Francisco Area About the Professional Skills Training The Professional Training is an accelerated training designed for mental health professionals in two modules. The first module covers the theory and techniques of the Hakomi Method and the second module (the Advanced Professional Training) will teach advanced approaches to mindful exploration of the psyche, transference systems, attachment and trauma. Identical curricula are offered concurrently in two locations: San Anselmo and Santa Cruz. Students must register for a single location. Goals & Objectives This training presents the skills and principles of Hakomi Experiential Psychology, and the unique intervention and treatment strategies which follow from them. Participants will be trained in the precise moment-to-moment elegance of working with mindfulness in psychodynamic psychotherapy. In addition, because Hakomi is dedicated to the aliveness of both client and therapist, great emphasis is placed both on the attachment based nature of the therapeutic relationship, and on the ground of being from which the therapist works. “Come sit with me and let us remember the beauty of your soul” In this training you will learn • To provide brief, in-depth psychotherapy using the present moment and live experience • How to design and utilize interventions to access and transform core models of the self, others and the world • To apply the art of tracking non-verbal communication from the unconscious • To apply Mindfulness and experiential methodologies to address safety, self regulation and relationship skills • To use the body to access unconscious material • Approaches to working with content, movement, gesture, voice and pace • Non-invasive techniques to work directly with resistance and psycho-emotional defenses without opposing them • Techniques to deepen towards core psychological material • To work with transference/countertransference systems in respectful and experiential ways that enhance curiosity and aliveness in the relationship • To utilize the attachment relationship within the therapeutic container • Contemporary neuroscience models for Mindfulness based interventions • To distinguish developmental vs. traumatic injuries • Mindful tools to renegotiate trauma states. And proven techniques for somatic resourcing • To help the client embody and process regressed states towards resolution of long term issues and behaviors • To design interventions to access and transform core models of the self, others and the world • Sophisticated maps for understanding client psychological organization Included in the above are five competencies: Competency #1: The Therapeutic Relationship How to access right brain to right brain limbic connection with the client, paving the way for unfolding into unconscious material. How to use moment to moment interventions to address and heal attachment wounds. Competency #2: Observing the Unconscious How to notice the workings of the unconscious in present experience and in non verbal signals. How to use the present moment and the body as rich sources of psychological information and build limbic connection. Competency #3: Deepening Therapy How to achieve the depth and exploration that makes therapy come alive. Practical methods for deeply exploring the psyche. Powerful interventions for safely working with thought, sensation, impulse, emotion and memory exploring their origins. Competency #4 Using Mindfulness Psychodynamically How to use mindfulness directly in the psychodynamic psychotherapy process. Differentiating between traumatic and developmental issues. Competency #5 Working with Defenses, and Transformation of Core Material How to elegantly work with resistance and defenses by supporting them. Transforming core models of the world. Structure The Hakomi Professional Training is taught over the course of seven month and provides a thorough grounding in the theories and techniques of Hakomi. Application Trainings, which integrate the Hakomi Method with various topics, are available to graduates. Style of Teaching The training is geared to clinical professionals and includes short didactic presentations, live and video demonstrations, skill-based experiential exercises, and supervised practice.
