This intensive 3-day workshop focuses on further developing the theory and practice of relaxation skills applied within counselling, training and group work settings. The course includes theoretical concepts and practical skill applications of relaxation, i.e. tension and its physiological, emotional, mental and behavioural outcomes; passive or active relaxation; diaphragmatic breathing; creative imagery; body language; voice tone and words; body alignment and posture, rational and irrational thoughts (tension or relaxation provoking). Examples are drawn from the fields of counselling, coronary rehabilitation, infertility, exercise and children. All are encompassed within a framework of personal practice, understanding, development and exploration of its uses with clients.
Delegates are required to have first attended the two-day Primary Certificate in Relaxation Skills Training course.
For the purpose of skills training, participants need to wear loose clothing (e.g. elasticated waistband) and be prepared to lie down for full relaxation to be experienced. If possible also bring a small pillow for head and shoulder support. If you are not able to lie down, the process can still be experienced sitting.
