Practicum Intensives

3 classes, 6 hrs. each on Saturdays from 9:30am-5:00pm

Our Practicum Intensive classes are immensely popular classes that focus on both differentiating and treating character types using bodywork interventions. We typically schedule 2 live client sessions during the class. Dr. Frisch actively demonstrates verbal character-work for 20 minutes and then the client moves to the couch to experience the biophysical techniques, if appropriate. Dr. Frisch guides those in attendance and trained in biophysical work to use hands-on methods to help clients release held-in tensions, make contact with their physical sensations and expression, and access emotional content. There will be 3 Practicum Intensives held on Saturdays.
