Professional newsletter: January training with vision board, conference notes, more

Posted Dec 20 2010 5:16pm
Learn to make a vision board!

It's nearly 2011! That means that Wisconsin professionals think about making our goals while also figuring out how to get continuing education hours by Feb. 28.

The January training will help you learn how to make a vision board as fun and interesting tool to help your clients, students and other learners to focus on their dreams in a positive way. The training is designed for counselors, coaches and others who work with people who may need to set goals.
In this hands-on session with Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, you make your own vision board and you will learn:
  • The story behind vision board tradition
  • Alternatives to vision "boards" for various populations.
  • How to carry the process for significant personal growth so the project is not craft-oriented or busy work. 
  • How to integrate with additioinal experiential processes including psychodrama, guided imagery and others. 
From 1 to 4 p.m. with three continuing education hours for social workers, licnesed professional counselors and addictions counselors, plus psychodrama credits. Tuition is $35 for program, materials, handout and credit hours. Send check to Lake House and contact Karen at (262) 633-2645 to reserve. Details on this and other trainings here .

Sand tray training

Postive comments on the recent "Sand Tray Theatre" training for professionals, when participants had the hands-opportuonity to create a series of sand tray scenes, starting with gentle work with their hands in the sand and then continuing with various vignettes for various therapeutic and coaching issues.
We ended up with this final scene:

"Listening can be the greatest meditation"

Philosopher Eckert Tolle talks about listening to patients in this great video --  not just with words but also with presence of heart, mind and spirit. "The most important part is the energy field of listening," rather than just the story, which elevates the human interaction and avoids deletion in the helper.
