About this Training:

Advanced Clinical Maps provides sophisticated therapeutic maps for guiding clinical strategy.  This module includes Hakomi’s gentle reframing of Character Theory. Through reading, dialogue, the R-CS map of the Self, and experiential exercises, participants will gain familiarity with the basic childhood patterns of developmental wounding and defense.

This training also covers the Hakomi Sensitivity Cycle, a simple yet effective description of the process by which people accomplish any task. Participants will learn the related process stages (Insight, Effectiveness, Satisfaction and Relaxation), and the typical barriers to success that form through developmental wounding. Integrating the Sensitivity Cycle with Character, participants will obtain an immediately applicable matrix for assessing client behavior, including specific interventions for engaging with each Character pattern and barrier.

We also focus on the practitioner’s ability to discriminate the various kinds of wounding that clients present, and the specific treatment orientations and strategies needed for each. Referencing spatial and movement dynamics, Trauma, Attachment, fragmentation of consciousness and somatic habituation will all be discussed, with an emphasis on the practitioner being able to recognize, integrate and flow among modalities. Attention will also be paid to the particular working style of each therapist, in an effort to allow everyone to work from their strengths while developing their range.

Course material will be presented through a combination of readings, lecture, experiential exercises, demonstration and supervised practice. M.E.T.A.’s customized and experiential training style makes this module appropriate for seasoned clinicians, as well as professionals entering the counseling field.
