Improvisation, Provocation and Dramatic Intervention in Therapy
With Andrew T. Austin and Nick Kemp
Date: 5th-6th September 2009
Location: Leeds, UK

In a workshop that is the first of its kind, Andrew T. Austin and Nick Kemp present a combination of improv, provocative therapy and drama in therapeutic settings.

All too often contemporary therapy sessions consist of pleasant intellectual exploration of issues and little more, or, worse still, the therapist relies on a set "script" of techniques. Whilst this may benefit some clients, it is often found that the addition of a sense of drama to the change work can massively facilitate change.

Emotional change is created best by what is emotionally impactful.

By engaging the full set of raw emotional responses of the client, conscious patterns are by-passed and deep therapeutic change can be effected.

As readers of, "The Rainbow Machine - Tales From a Neurolinguist's Journal" will be aware, Andrew T. Austin often likes to utilize the building of humour, tension and drama into his change work sessions and rarely does he use any pre-set or rehearsed routines. Often the client will bring their own drama and unique humour to the session and a high level of flexibility and responsivity is needed in such situations.

Learn how to:

  • use improvisation in the most challenging of situations
  • formulate responses to the most challenging communications
  • develop and build a sense of drama and tension within changework sessions
  • fractionation - build and release tension
  • track the numerous "frames" opened up by clients

In client interactions "the manner" and "state" of the practitioner and therapist" is as (if not) more important than the techniques used to affect client change. This weekend is for those practitioners who want to greatly improve their client success and develop a greater ability to work in a more fluid, conversational and time effective manner.

Both Nick Kemp and Andrew T Austin will be drawing upon their many years of working with clients in one to one and group situations and will be teaching what they have found of most use when working in private practice.

"You are totally disarming and beyond formalisation. There is ease and naturalness about you and you make people relax really quickly. You got the power man!"

Frank Farrelly, Creator of Provocative Therapy on Nick Kemp, (June 16th 2006)

Expect a provocative, spontaneous, entertaining skills based weekend!
