The Use of Sculpting in Therapy: Externalizing the Internal Dynamics

February 28, 29, 2020 (Fri/Sat) 8:30am to 4:30pm
Sponsored by the Satir Institute of the Pacific

Virginia Satir often used sculpting in her work to externalize the internal dynamics of what was happening both within and between individuals. Sculpting is a vehicle for change as it taps into the wisdom of the body to access possibilities that are out of an individual’s awareness. Memories are stored at a cellular level in the body. Sculpting is one way of accessing cellular memory and the subconscious knowledge that would otherwise be unavailable to them.

In this experiential workshop, we will explore a variety of ways to use sculpting in therapy and group processes. The neurobiology of sculpting will be explored for a greater awareness of the power of experiential processes to bring about transformational change. Creative options for how to use sculpting in individual, couple and family therapy will also be explored.

Through lectures, small group discussion, and experiential learning, participants will have an opportunity to both conceptualize and experience sculpting for themselves, enhancing clinical skills to facilitate transformational change.
