"In this training video, Virginia Satir presents her pioneering views on the essential ingredients of successful therapy. Satir presents her four stages of therapy, and demonstrates the principles via numerous role-plays, where you'll get a sense of her warmth, facility in making perceptive statements that resonate with clients, and ability to use touch to deepen a client's sense of safety. The therapist's role, she advises, is to create the safest environment for a client to move from their internalized "status quo" into the vulnerable unknown, a requirement for anyone wanting to let go of old conditioning and experience a new way of being. You will learn about client ambivalence, intellectualization, and anxiety's role in motivation; the need for a client to trust their therapist; experiential ways of understanding and working with client resistance; and the nature of trust, choice, and a client's sense of chaotic "limbo" that can arise during the therapeutic process. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." - Supplied by publisher.
