Workshop:  Enhancing the Client’s Therapeutic Experience by the Use of Ordinary Household Objects Workshop 

1.0 CEU


Workshop Overview: The use of objects to concretize or make concrete an idea or concept serves the purpose of bringing shape and form to our inner world of thoughts and feelings. Additionally, because people learn differently, using objects gives people a different way to give and receive information.  Therapeutically, for example, clients will better be able to communicate the quality of a relationship by concretely showing the size differential of two (or more) objects and spatially, in relation to each other. Theoretical underpinnings of concretizing one’s inner world will be discussed with participants.  In a hands-on experience, participants will be given several objects to use to learn more about this topic by using a case vignette.
