18MH017 - RESCHEDULED - Transpersonal Psychology: Advanced Techniques to Move Clients from Trauma to Self-Actualization and Joy


This two-day workshop features advanced clinical skills, based on concepts from the Inner Counselor Technique ™ to help clients heal from traumatic experiences. It is a transformational approach, designed to move clients beyond their stories to experience a greater sense of joy and wholeness through a unique process of personality integration. Inner Counselor Techniques ™ expand on the work of psychologists such as Abraham Maslow, Carl Gustav Jung, and William James. The techniques target both spiritual and psychological dimensions to assist clients in changing their automatic response patterns. As a clinician, this workshop will provide you with transpersonal tools to help your clients get to the root of their suffering, become more self-actualized and optimize their sense of joy in everyday life.

The Inner Counselor System has evolved over the last 30 years to become a highly effective approach for self-directed, on-going personal and spiritual healing and growth.

The Inner Counselor has three essential components:
  1. A clear conceptual framework
  2. A guided Self-Awareness Process, and
  3. A method that integrates these two components to create powerful and lasting transformations in body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
Inner Counselor is a progressive, whole systems approach to self-healing and integration that includes a clearly outlined Integration Chart and a 15-Step guided Self-awareness Process (ICP™). The brief, dynamic ICP™ may be used by professionals as a symptoms-oriented clinical intervention or by individuals seeking on-going personal and spiritual growth. The ICP™ quickly and effectively resolves trauma as well as resolving more common, less traumatic dysfunctional coping patterns.

The core of this system is a connection with one's "Inner Wisdom." This connection supports the perennial spiritual philosophy that the true "healer" lies within each of us.

This workshop is an advanced training in Transpersonal Psychology. It was inspired by an introductory course, which is recommended but not required, to attend this unique two-day event.
