JFK University Continuing Education
On September 17, 2016 we held our first course on Focusing-Oriented Expressive Arts: An Introduction, at JFK University in Berkeley, CA. It was an exciting course to offer with participants able to count the course toward a Certificate from JFKU in Expressive Arts and/or Guided Imagery. The training, presented by Laury Rappaport, Ph.D., MFT, REAT, ATR-BC included an overview of the history of FOAT®; the basic concepts— focusing attitude, felt sense and felt shift, as well as an introduction to the basic approaches: FOAT® Check-in; Clearing a Space with the Arts; Theme-Directed FOAT®; and FOAT® Psychotherapy Process. Case examples and experiential exercises were included.
