Description

While we all know that success in therapy depends on the therapist–client relationship, building that positive rapport hinges on behaviours many therapists aren’t even aware of.

Imagine bolstering your therapeutic presence by consciously amplifying behaviours that make clients feel safe, connected, and cared for.

In this playful, experiential recording, you’ll master the often nonverbal qualities of the powerful, collaborative brain state which is delineated in Polyvagal Theory as the “social engagement system,” which underlies relational experiences.
