John Butler will guide you through the rich range of the multi-level, powerful and effective therapy developed by Gil Boyne in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, and continued in development until his passing in 2010. John, who worked intensively with Gil for the last 10 years of his life, collaborated with him in creating many of the later developments and he continues to develop the method today.
Gil Boyne shared the view with Fritz Perls that the most effective way to obtain progress and movement with a client who is stuck in inner conflict or deadlock, is to use the methods of drama and dialogue, and these are central to Transforming Therapy.
The workshop includes materials and guidance for continued self-development in these aspects, as well as teaching on the repertory of roles and therapeutic traits the practitioner can draw on, during the course of a session or over the course of a multi-session therapy with a client.
Gil’s profoundest conviction was that the human inner self is infinitely creative and regenerative, and all the skill and knowledge that he gained in a lifetime of dedication to therapeutic work were devoted to leading his clients, and his students, to realizing what he called the “beautiful truth about themselves”.
The seminar includes materials and teaching in developing, from your own personal value system, resources to assist clients in constructing creative value systems of their own.
Despite many derivatives and imitations on the market, Gil Boyne’s Transforming Therapy, developed by an exceptional practitioner who dedicated his mature life to the project, is unrivalled for its depth, effectiveness and humanity.
