  Facilitated by Mia Levitt Frank 

"The greatest help in unlocking the meaning individuals ascribe to themselves and to their life, is their store of memories" – Adler.

Unlocking and revealing strengths and creativity in ER's is an encouraging and empowering process for both client and therapist, allowing for movement and change.

In this experiential workshop, we will focus on discovering personal strengths and strategies as well as each participant's unique sources of energy. Participants will experience sharing and working with early recollections in a safe and encouraging environment

1.  Family Relationships  chilli3chilli3chilli3

Facilitated by Ursula Oberst

Family relationships and parenting issues are not always an easy task, and family relationships are often a series of conflicts. On the basis of the classical Adler-Dreikurs model, a systemic family perspective is introduced and integrated. Problem situations presented by the participants will serve as examples for experiential learning by means of role-playing and enactment of the problem situation. 

Participants will consolidate their knowledge about the Adlerian-Dreikurs approach of dealing with difficult situations in the family and learn to use techniques in order to prevent conflicts in the family and to intervene efficiently when problems arise.
