BT12 Short Course 57 Footprintings Nine Colors, Infinite Possibilities Susan Dowell, LCSW, BCD
Footprintings is a new three dimensional treatment model. In this work, nine different color sets of Footprintings become tools for a patient to bookmark, diagram, track and explore internal experience and shifting states of consciousness, as they are experienced in the Present Moment. When a patient chooses color Footprintings to represent an aspect of self-experience, positions these Footprintings on the ground and then stands in them, the postural shifts , body experience, and shifting perspectives and associations unfolding from this positioning can lead to valuable insights, learning opportunities and new perspectives. This three dimensional approach offers patients both the direct opportunity to learn more about the unique process of internal communication between Self-States and the concrete tools for reorganizing, repairing and forging new and supportive internal alliances. In this workshop, we will offer an introduction to the theory and practice of Footprintings. Attendees will then have a chance to observe and/or participate in a three-dimensional practicum.
- Describe two ways Footprintings can be used to deepen our understanding of Self- States as they exist in Present Moment experience.
- Describe one way Footprintings can enhance internal communication between Self States.
- Discuss one way that Footprintings can be used for repairing and forging new internal relationships between Self-States.
