Introduction

What a loaded term. What a perceptually-based term. Of course, what is "normal" and how it's defined is a construct. Nevertheless, most of our clients operate from belief systems that tell them there are things that are "normal" and "not normal," and many of them often wonder whether they fall into the "normal" category, or in the "not normal" category. The impact for them is seen in their self-concept, self-worth, and self-confidence - three essential tools for anyone to get out of suffering.

Come join us for a discussion about what's "normal" and what's not "normal" when put in the right context. Let's work with our clients and engage them around their perceptions and beliefs, and let's help them adjust the way they see themselves in the world.

What you’ll learn

At the end of this online seminar, you will have:

  • Learned to bring awareness to how we understand what is "normal" or not.
  • Learned the Principles, Techniques, Steps, and Do's and Don'ts of the Socratic Motivational Practice to bring awareness to how we understand what is "normal" or not.
  • Increased your tools of talking with patients and clients, by identifying at least one thing you will start doing differently at the end of the seminar, as a result of the Socratic Motivational Practice framework.
