I am very happy to announce that Deej Juventin, one of my favorite somatic and embodied teacher and educator, will come to Berlin in Summer 2020 to share his special and well-developed Embodied Counselling Training with us.
This is what Deej is sharing with us
I am delighted to be returning to Berlin to teach the Introductory Certificate in Embodied Counselling, and to have the opportunity to connect more with our somatic colleagues from across Europe, those established as well as those beginning their journey.
My passion is training practitioners to work somatically, and teaching somatically. The body, when talking somatically, is the process of having awareness in the living moment, enabling us to access the full breadth of information available – from the physical organism, emotion, environment, arousal, social interactions, to name a few.
This training focuses on simple somatic skills to support our clients (and ourselves) with the emotional aspect of their experience. Rather than avoid or get lost in emotion, we can access it as a guide in moving through the world, to live with more discernment, more wisdom, and more vitality.
The Introductory Certificate in Embodied Counselling is a profoundly useful and embodied professional development program for people working in the helping professions, offering simple, effective and powerful information and tools.
The training connects embodied practice with psychotherapeutic theory, language and practice. You will develop a grounded foundation in information on psychotherapeutic approaches leading to the current shift towards somatic approaches, as well as study the basic neurological information that supports the importance of these approaches (there is a revolution going on in neuroscience that is providing empirical support for the importance of embodied work). At the same time, you develop effective, and foundational, embodied counselling skills – ways to support clients to become aware of and work with what they are experiencing through the body. You also develop your own sense of embodiment and effective practices to support clients in getting started with embodied practice.
We achieve this through:
– easy to follow course materials and study guides for the 9-week program
– 7 live Zoom classes
– 9 weeks of guided practice
– Opportunities to expand your knowledge in areas of your choice through guided research
– Practice, reflection and feedback of embodied counselling sessions
– 3 days together practicing, studying and further embodying the learning/3-day intensive in Berlin to integrate the learning in July 17th -19th 2020
– The community and vibrancy of co-created embodied learning
