Learn to apply Adlerian psychology to adult relationships

Encouragement Consultant Training is a 2 day certification training in applied Adlerian psychology.  You'll learn to apply the principals and techniques of Adlerian psychology to life’s real challenges, using practical, experiential exercises that help people think, feel and do better.  Applicable to all relationships, including your relationship with yourself.

Designed by Lynn Lott, MA, MMFT (co-founder of Positive Discipline), with over 30 years experience as a therapist in private practice, and  a respected Diplomate in Adlerian Psychology, this training is based on time-tested techniques that help people build awareness and skills to live life fully, with hope and courage.

Are you looking for:

* Practical tools to build stronger, healthier relationships with others?  Encouraging communication practices,  setting firm boundaries, how to find courage to express real thoughts and feelings.

* Simple ways to identify discouraging thoughts and learn to change them, so you can stop being so hard on yourself and avoid making the same mistakes over and over?

* Guidance in working intelligently with emotions, instead of bottling up or blowing up?

* Additional ways to build awareness of self-defeating patterns, and small steps to change?  Simple yet powerful activities to examine beliefs and behaviors.

* Insight that leads to action, instead of avoidance or self-criticism?  Identify disempowering beliefs that lead to self-handicapping behaviors, enjoy greater self-acceptance, and create new patterns of behavior that support movement toward your goals.

At the end of this training, you'll be equipped to lead individual clients or groups in simple yet powerful experiential exercises that bring clarity around beliefs, motivations, and ultimately, behavior patterns - plus concrete strategies for steady, consistent change.
