In this workshop, participants will didactically and experientially learn how to creatively help clients identify and give voice to their many parts- or the facets of who they are-through a combination of mapping and journaling prompts. Using contextual, situational, and inter-personal cues, clients can access the dominant and non-dominant parts that “show up” to provide them with needed strengths, abilities, or in some cases, the necessary protection.
We will first explore the concept of “parts” and how to introduce it into the therapy work. We will consider both the assets and the “protective” function of parts. We will then experience a four-step process, guided by the clinician, that is designed to identify parts, give them a voice, and increase collaboration between parts, even when they have competing or polarized agendas.
The incorporation of journal prompts and two-handed writing will deepen the communication between parts. This approach can be used with any adolescent or adult client, regardless of their diagnosis. Participants will discover that when parts are mapped and “voiced” it can open the door to greater internal safety, insight, inner peace, and self-compassion.
