The intention of this workshop is to connect to the field of ending and separation, reflect, share and suggest ways to meet the complexity of ending the therapeutic relationship in a healing and empowering way.
The complexity around ending the therapeutic relationship is often overlooked, minimized and at times even avoided. This is not surprising since ending involves separation, and as we know separation issues are at the core of our deepest wounds. The subject of separation is so emotionally loaded and covered with layers of protection, that in daily relationships many treat separation as a Taboo and avoid relating to it and feeling it as if it was a plague.
However in the therapeutic relationship we are called to bring consciousness and healing to the client’s past wounds around separation. But it is a vulnerable-making process for both client and therapist, to deal directly with the ending and separation that is happening between them.
