South Region Luncheon
by Don Hadlock, LMFT
In the course of my practice, I have found that clients work in three distinct and separate realms; The External Realm, The Relational Realm, and the Internal Realm. The External Realm is where conceptual ideas are explored, where clients understand and explore their relationship with the world. The Relational Realm is where clients work with their in-the-moment experiences with the therapist. The Internal Realm is where clients explore their experiences with themselves. In this third realm clients deal with their traumas, injuries, and false identities. From an ability to identify which realm a client is focused, the therapist can design invitations that may help the client move toward a deeper connection to themselves and their experience. This class will explore how to identify the realm the client is focusing on, and how to work with clients on these various realms.
The goals of this class are to help participants be able to provide an expanded view of how to join clients where they are, to track the client in their work, and to facilitate the work of the clients on a variety of clinical realms.
At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:
- Describe the difference between the External, Relational, and Internal Realms
- Identify which realm a client is focused upon in any particular moment
- Join the work with a client on whatever realm they are focused upon
- Demonstrate a way to track a client’s work on the various realms
