The child lives on! Though we may develop adult bodies and think our childhood is long behind us, somewhere inside the child is still alive, deeply influencing our thoughts, words and actions. It may be that the most important relationship we have is the relationship we develop with our inner child. In this workshop, we will teach you how to help your clients reestablish a healthy relationship with their inner child—so that they can both listen and talk to that sensitive, creative, and essential part of us.

Using Imaginal techniques, we join and explore the world of the child. We learn how to work effectively and add a healthy coach or caring inner parent to repair the shame-ruptured parts from neglect or simply misattunements. We say hello to the part that wants to eat healthy and the part that wants ice cream. And say hello to the bully and the scary places. We learn to listen deeply and provide the champion or protector that the child didn’t have. We get to explore and re-enact scenes from childhood when a person was shamed and repair or replace what they wish they could have said.

This workshop will also cover different levels of how to work clinically with children age 2 to 12 years old. We will be working with psychosocial development and early attachment and nourishment that can get disrupted and need repair. We will cover case examples; exercises and games, including puppets, therapeutic storytelling, and interactive story-making with kids and families; drama therapy; expressive arts processes, including drawing and writing exercises; and more.
