Imaginative Contemplation and Interactive Guided Imagery in Clinical and Spiritual Practice
Most styles of meditation used in clinical settings and practice encourage non-attachment to images, feelings, thoughts and desires. Another less well-known form of meditative or contemplative practice called Imaginative Contemplation encourages participation in sacred narratives, metaphors, symbols, and images in ways that often promote powerful psychological and spiritual differentiation and integration.
Martha A. Robbins, Th.D., will describe and explore various ways of engaging in imaginative contemplation and interactive guided imagery and discuss the spiritual and clinical benefits and potential risks.
This workshop on ethics offers six Continuing Education Credits for mental health and health care professionals.
