This six half-day training includes both theory and hands-on skill training combining attitudinal and micro-skill training formats. It will begin with an integrative theoretical framework for therapist empathy that brings together emotion-focused therapy theory, social neuroscience, the empathy cycle, and the empathy channels model. Most of the workshop will involve skill practice using your personal material, starting with the classic Opening Channels of Receptivity exercise, and progressing through separate modules on Evocative Empathy, Exploratory Empathy, Empathic Affirmation,
Process Empathy, and Empathic Conjecture. Each of these will be clearly described
and concretely illustrated by a video or live demonstration, followed by skill practice
