About the course:
At the centre of all psychotherapies is a relationship between two people and a desire to connect at a fundamental human level. Yet for many of us, clients and therapists alike, deep connection is elusive: We are wired as human beings to be exquisitely sensitive to each other, and shame, vulnerability, and doubt keep us hiding our true selves. As therapists, we retreat into our professional training, focus on symptoms, and hide behind our expertise. The full power of the therapeutic relationship remains locked and opportunities for transformative therapeutic experiences are lost.

Whether you are engaging in CBT, ACT, DBT, or another therapeutic intervention, This training aims to add to your professional repertoire the following: Expertise in human connection. This training will help you connect with your clients in ways that create transformative moments that far exceed symptom change.

At its heart, FAP training is primarily experiential, focusing on the truism that we are with our clients in the exquisite sensitivity of human connection and the desire to be truly seen for who we are. In these training, participants practice the art of social connection with each other, exchanging vulnerabilities and learning how to connect through a series of experiential exercises. We learn through the process of doing, thereby discovering or rediscovering our own behavioral repertoires that promote or block intimacy from occurring.
