Most of us who practice therapy
know that any real and lasting change that occurs as a result of therapy has much more to do with a deep
internal shift in the interlocking planes of the psyche, than it does with mere behavior. But how does the therapist
access that level of the psyche? In order to do that, we have to assist our clients in accessing their own
authenticity, as well as the identifications that present as a barriers to authenticity. This home study (for 21 Contact
Hours) offers the therapist a practical, experiential model for assisting the client in finding and beginning to live out
of the Authentic Self. Through this study, the therapist will learn to define the Authentic Self as the
primary healing agent of the therapy endeavor. By walking through the actual experiential exercises, the
therapist will gain his/her own practical experice in the process of accessing, learning to depend upon and beginning to live
out of the Authentic Self. Doing the work, allows the therapist to then be able to facilitate the work of
his/her clients. Further, the text is a self-help book that your clients may use in therapy as homework. Understanding
the concepts of the book and the dynamics of finding and living the Authentic Self will assist you, as the therapist, in assisting
your client in his/her own journey.
