From fixed to flexible self:
The role of the self in the development of well-being and excellence
- Letting go of yourself to achieve your best self
- Achieving excellence
This is an advanced DNA-V workshop focused on the self. It is not necessary for you to have taken a introductory DNA-V workshop, but it would be helpful. Our sense of self is often hidden from view, unconsciously guiding how we use our skills and limiting our potential for change and growth.
In this workshop, we will focus on helping ourselves and our clients to contact a deep, flexible sense of self that is not limited by self-criticism or self-categories. We will show you the limits and dangers of trying to build a positive self-concept, and the most effective way to use positive self-talk with a client. We will also explore why it is that clients often fear self-compassion, and how you can help clients confront this fear and learn to motivate themselves in a new way.
At the end of the workshop, you will be able to help people to expand – from a fixed self-concept that has become too small– into something bigger and better.
