There is extensive research showing that imagery has a greater impact on emotion than verbal modes of processing. In other words, thinking in mental pictures elicits a bigger emotional reaction than thinking in words. With this in mind, imagery can therefore be used to enhance CBT in various ways. In this practical and experiential workshop, participants will learn how to:
- Socialise clients to working with imagery in therapy;
- Incorporate imagery into thought record work, to make this intervention more emotionally powerful;
- Engage clients in imagery rescripting, as an effective method for bringing more functional meaning to past negative events; and
- Use positive imagery in the construction of new core beliefs.
Copies of slides plus client worksheets and psychoeducational materials will be provided.
Morning tea is provided. Our great location ensures there are many lunch options to suit participants’ needs.
