Many of us as adults carry unresolved feelings and negative relating skills that we developed in childhood. Often we recognize ways in which our pain from childhood is repeated in present day relationships and activities. Sometimes we are unaware of how we repeat with others what was learned long ago. Some people shut down emotions altogether, while others act out their emotions in destructive ways. Usually we blame the other people in our lives for the repetitive pain.
No matter where we are, however, the emotion or lack of emotion is ours and only we can stop the repetition. This pain pattern is the leading cause of poor choices and dysfunctional relationships or withdrawal from relating. The workshop will encourage recognition of repetitive patterns of pain or shutdown, will allow for emotional healing, and will engender cognitive understanding as well as development of new behavioral choices. Enhancing Your Essence will be the particular focus of the next emotional healing workshop.
The gentle, natural approach to processing emotions will teach you how to resolve stressful feelings and heal underlying issues affecting your life. Learning to release stressful feelings from the present or far past will allow you to make better choices to live a happier, healthier life. The workshop will include cognitive treatments, structured visualizations and dyad processes.
In a relaxed, non-confrontational environment that respects your own pace and privacy, you will learn to safely resolve current and repressed feelings, allowing important, healthy, positive changes to occur.
Participants in the Emotional Healing workshop must have at least one session with a center therapist before attending this workshop. Tel: 703-549-9554×1 to schedule.
