    Presented By: Wally Phillips, LMFT

    The Hakomi Method of Mindfulness-Centered Somatic Psychotherapy was first created in the late 1970’s by the internationally renowned therapist and author, Ron Kurtz. Integrating scientific, psychological, and spiritual sources, Hakomi has evolved into a complex and elegant form of psychotherapy that is highly effective with a wide range of populations. The method draws from general systems theory and modern body-centered therapies including Gestalt, Psychomotor, Feldenkrais, Focusing, Ericksonian Hypnosis, Neurolinguistic Programming, and the work of Wilhelm Reich and Alexander Lowen. Core concepts of gentleness, nonviolence, compassion, and mindfulness evolved from Buddhism and Taoism.

    Hakomi is paradoxically powerful: it is gentle and nonviolent, yet yields dramatic results rapidly. In many ways, its subtle power flows from the congruence of its methods and techniques with the underlying principles and assumptions that guide it: Mindfulness, Nonviolence, Unity, Organicity and Mind-Body Integration; these tenets inform every aspect of the work. For more information please visit the Hakomi Method website

    Learning Objectives - After completion of the presentation the attendees will understand:

    1. How to make 'Contact Statements' as a way of attuning to clients.

    2. How to immerse client in mindfulness as a way of getting access to the nervous system.

    3. Look for at least 3 things to track in clients in non-verbal presentation.  

    About our speaker

    A former engineer, Wally Phillips is an LMFT, receiving his license in 2008. Prior to entering grad school, he immersed himself into the Hakomi world in 1998 after seeing and experiencing the power of body-oriented therapy. He then became a workshop junkie getting his hands and body into every workshop he could find. In his practice, he pulls from Hakomi, psychodrama, Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing, Integrative Body Psychotherapy, Arnie Mindell's ProcessWork, and his own trauma recovery. His practice is in San Francisco, and Marin county.

    Presented By: Sylvia Israel, LMFT

    What is Psychodrama? Psychodrama is a holistic experiential method of exploring a person’s internal and external worlds. The goal of psychodrama is to release the creativity and spontaneity of each individual, allowing them to clarify and gain new perspectives in relationships and problems. As clients move from “talking about” into action, opportunities arise to develop inner resources, heal the past, clarify the present and have hopes and dreams for the future. 

    After a brief talk on the history and theory of Psychodrama, we will move into experiential warm-ups that can be adapted to your work. We will then practice how to safely help clients access resources (interpersonal, intra-psychic and spiritual) through the embodiment of a role. The session will include a short Psychodrama.

    Learning Objectives - After completion of the presentation the attendees will:

    1. Apply one or more psychodramatic methods to your work.

    2. Explain the importance of warm-up when using role-play.

    3. Discuss why playing supportive roles is prescriptive for trauma healing.
