WHAT IS EMOTIONAL LITERACY?

When we are emotionally literate, we can deal with difficult emotional situations that often lead to us fighting, lying, lashing out, and hurting other people.

We are under the constant effect of emotional trauma. Some of them appear in the simple everyday life challenges, while others come from betrayals and disappointments. Without an exit, emotional pain causes us to freeze emotionally. But when we put ourselves in an emotional «cocoon,» we lose touch with our feelings and become powerless to understand and control them.

We crave emotional experience and seek it in many ways.

Learning emotional literacy is a direct and effective way to connect with your feelings and their power, and thereby establish good and loving relationships with other people.

You can learn to touch others with your emotions. You don't have to remove the power of control and fear. Instead, you can be an empath, drawing energy from love and sharing the power that love gives you.

For a general audience.

As a result of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • train yourself to enjoy your feelings and the feelings of other people;
  • learn to understand and direct your emotions, listen and respond to the needs of others;
  • correct emotional damage and navigate the world of feelings;
  • learn your level of emotional awareness.

Balint groups is a method of a group training research work. The central object of the research in a classic Balint group is the psychotherapist-client relationship. The analysis of this relationship allows gaining better understanding of the client in the context of his connections and interactions with the real world. Balint groups can be used as a tool for professional and personal growth in helping specialists. The participants will be offered a classic German version of a Balint group and a «sculpture» Balint group session. Today we are witnessing a growing importance of socionomic-type helping professionals such as doctors, psychologists, and social workers. The most important variable of social practice in these areas is the personality of the specialist as a means of professional activity. This is illustrated through the personal attitude of the helping professional, his competence as a practicing researcher or his professional treatment of clients. Today helping professionals are facing a burnout syndrome as an inevitable type of professional deformation.

The event is meant for a wide audience.

As soon as we cross the threshold and enter God's domain, our biological balance and the psychosomatic balance we seek will inevitably be shaken. A complete reconstruction of the personality is inevitable, including both its mental and physical plan, because there is a revolution, a new order is established, everything begins to live and interact differently. Our attitude changes to everything and in everything. There are times when no one asks or warns where they come from or why. These are times of deep spiritual changes, to which we involuntarily react with a mental disorder, falling into an inadequate and scattered perception of reality. As a rule, we do not distinguish between mental balance and healthy spirituality, believing that it is either the same thing, or both phenomena are directly related. However, this is not so!

Client group — designed for people who consider the topic relevant for them.

This group is for those who deep down cherish the idea of meeting with former lovers, to whom it seems that what they used to have was better, than what they have now.

It is a group for those, who want to transform old love relationships into friendships and «be friends by households», but for some reason they do not.

This is a group for those who decide whether to let the old love come close or is it better to move to a safe distance?

This group is for those who ponder over the words of Andrei Voznesensky «Do not return to your former lovers, there are no former lovers in the world.» Should we believe A. Voznesensky? Or does he express in his verse only personal traumatic experience?

In this group you can try to cope with the difficulties that arise in your relationship with complex and sometimes conflicting feelings towards former lovers.

As we all know, only few people spend their lives doing what they want. Many people simply are trying to survive the working week in anticipation of the weekend and unfortunately do not get any job satisfaction. At best, they have patience with their business, and at worst, they don’t.

One can definitely be guided by life circumstances, but as George Kelly argued, «No one should be a victim of his own biography»; and Jung wrote: « I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become."

Irvin Yalom believed, that responsibility implies authorship. Thus, being aware of responsibility means being aware of the creation of our own «I» by ourselves, of our fate, of our life success and failures, of our feelings as well as our sufferings, if any.

  • Get deeper contact with the role of the author of his own life

Each person controls himself and his own life in different ways. Большинство эффективных людей преодолевают детско-родительский сценарий, становясь авторами своего жизненного пути. Мастер-класс помогает сфокусироваться на внутренних ролях, которые управляют личностью и жизнью, а также, определить те варианты жизни, которые лежат в основе сценария.

Most effective people overcome the parent-child script, becoming the authors of their life paths. The master class helps to focus on the internal roles that control the personality and life, as well as identify those life options that underlie the script.

The master-class will be interesting for general audience.

Unfortunately, many people live their lives without thinking about what bricks it consists of and therefore have very little effect on it. The main idea of the author’s method is to help people to make life a separate subject of consideration.

Eric Berne proposed the idea of a person’s life script, however, did not answer the question «How to change it?». The master class is dedicated to the answer to this question. Most people live negative life variants: life as an obligation and coercion, as a routine, as a drift, etc. While successful people, overcoming the difficulties of the parent-child script, build their lives based on socially attractive and useful life variants: life as self-development, as achievement, as financial success, etc.

The construction of an effective life path represents a special resonance between the development of a person (especially role identification) and life variants that are defined by the social environment of a person. Therefore, the master class focuses on how a person individually creates his role profile and how life variants for a family script are transformed into a focused life path.

The Program of master-class:

  • 4D life building and counseling model.
  • The basis of the life script: 10 life variants.
  • 6 basic personality management roles.
  • Methods of life development.
  • Practical steps to change life.

The master class will help people fill their life with meaning, enrich it with vivid interesting events, build their happiness and live several lives in one life!

Your desires do not come just like that! Their aim is to compensate for hidden anxiety and lift to a new level your self-awareness! What hinders their implementation? A limiting beliefs and lack of motivation! Practice Yoga Nidra with self-hypnosis will help your wishes come true! In addition, for that to happen, you need a series of subtle psychophysical settings that only specialist can provide.

Yoga Nidra is a technique of relaxation, which inevitably will lead to calming of the nervous system and deep mental relaxation. This is a familiar state of consciousness «between sleep and wakefulness», but it is accomplished by volitional muscle relaxation and a short fixing attention on areas of the body and its parts.

The birth of this method occurred within the walls of the Bihar school of Yoga thanks to Swami Satyananda of Saraswati on the basis of two diverse traditions — the Vedic and tantric Niassa «yoga dreams» in the 50-ies of XX century.

Nidra is a hypnagogic state between sleep and wakefulness, and Yoga-Nidra (sleep yoga) is a method of maintaining this condition with the aim of relaxation and interaction with the subconscious.

Metaphorically, this method described as follows: the subconscious is a repository of all the programs that are your behavioral strategy. The state of Nidra opens the door to the subconscious, but your consciousness remains awake enough to affect its contents.

In this hypnagogic, and besides, still nice condition, there is a unique chance to strengthen the effectiveness of the programs which realize your desire through self-hypnosis. In the yoga tradition, they called Sankalpa.

Do you understand that your desire comes to you just like that? Usually you have a high need for this desire. It is born in your subconscious. Its implementation is designed to compensate for latent anxiety, and to satisfy and lift you to a new level of self-awareness!

Your desire still has not come true, although a lot of effort had been applied? What is in the way? Limiting beliefs and lack of motivation!

The practice of Yoga Nidra with autosuggestion will help your desires come true! Moreover, for this to happen, you need many subtle psychophysical settings, which can be provide by a specialist.

Serebriakova Karine Artashesovna — PhD in psychology, professor at MSUPE, lecturer at inter-regional level at RPPL, supervisor, head of System Consultation and Training Russia, Moscow.

The event will be interesting for specialists.

The master class will analyze one of the causes of anxiety in people who are in self-isolation/quarantine. We will talk about the developmental trauma caused by the child's parenting style in the family and how this is connected with the occurrence of anxiety in a quarantined environment. A structured technique for working with internal reality will be shown.

The quarantine caused by the coronavirus pandemic has raised many clients ' concerns about the restrictions being imposed. In their inner reality, they feel that they are in a prison from which there is no way out. This feeling often occurs in clients in the course of therapy, when they are faced with the theme of self-realization and self-actualization in the absence of external restrictions, in the presence of objective achievements in activities and with a fairly stable self-esteem.

One of the reasons, in this case, may be a developmental trauma caused by the child's upbringing system, in which any manifestations of free will are suppressed, there is strict control on the part of parents for any actions, and the main task of education is to suppress and subordinate the child to the will of parents. In this case, the child's personality is formed under constant pressure and restrictions, which negatively affects the manifestations of any kind of unauthorized activity in the adult state, causing incomprehensible vague anxiety when a person tries to go beyond the usual functioning and implementation of their plans.

Psychotherapeutic work with this type of anxiety is carried out in an internal reality, where there are their own laws and their own logic. Therefore, the main technique used is working with the imagination. The master class will present the general patterns of working with this topic, the main milestones that should be guided by a variety of customer image options, as well as the conditions under which the development of this topic is possible.

The concept of crisis therapy implies the fact that almost all existing approaches of psychotherapy are basically dealing with help in crisis situations and their study. Moreover, crisis therapy doesn't have a range of specific techniques and methods and represents an integral form of psychotherapy by its nature.

Art therapy, which has enjoyed booming development in recent years, can be attributed to one of these psychotherapeutic approaches and be easily integrated with another methods of psychotherapy.

In difficult and stressful situations people tend to spontaneously start doodling, scribbling; striking images over, blackening pieces of paper, or drawing lines in sand with a stick without even noticing it… Most commonly, this process is not being controlled by the consciousness — it is called «free drawing», an unconscious way to take traumatizing experience out of one's mind and to release the surfeit of feelings and emotions.

Natalie Rogers, a famous psychotherapist, writes: «In difficult life situations I was doodling, blowing my steam off, playing with paints without actually thinking of the results… Thus I noticed that I found calmness in drawings». According to N. Rogers, «When we use different forms of arts for self-healing or for therapy, we are not concerned about the beauty of what we create, literacy or style of a text we write, or harmony of a sound we produce. We use art as a release, an expression, an alleviation».

Art therapeutic exercises and techniques present a simple, effective and approachable way of urgent psychological help. They are based on art as on so-called «transitory space», a safe and naturally occurring space for a human being that is more steady and sheltered than any words. «I could have drawn it but I have no idea how to express it with words», — K. Rudestam cites one of his clients. Nonverbal means of expression are most effective to let traumatizing emotional states out and put them into prospective.

K. Jung believed arts to be a crucial instrument of self-healing features of human psyche. In stressful situations a person spontaneously addresses his unconscious «in search of dreams and images which bear potential resources or seeds of healing».

Workshop Description:

Supervision is an effective form of experience exchange and professional development. It builds necessary conditions for the effective work and possibility to control its quality. Supervision helps to incorporate innovative components into the daily practice of a professional.

The Workshop is designed for specialists in Assistance.

The Workshop will cover cases presentations as well as didactic analysis of them.

History:

As a practice, Polymodal Supervision in Russia began more than 20 years ago. The Polymodal Supervision Group started in Novosibirsk in the late 1990s in the Insight Psychotherapeutic Clinic. The principles of practice have been developed for several years as the Group was being established.

The Group was open to new specialists. It welcomed new specialists in Assistance, social workers, lawyers, General Practitioners, and teachers, who joined the Group to solve the professional problems.

As Supervision was gradually developing, searching for theoretical justifications for the phenomenology of its effectiveness, the Group as a voluntary community provided the members the great opportunity to work and develop professionally. Due to the growing interest of psychotherapist communities in practical situations, various methods of work, other psychotherapist schools and concepts, the Polymodal Supervision Group has become in demand among professionals.

The number of the Group members is growing, and there is a need to widen the framework of the Group, while maintaining the initial principles of the Group. Now there are about fifteen groups working within the Group framework in Russia. Some of these groups work on an ongoing basis, while others gather on a case-by-case basis (during decades, festivals, congresses).
