EXPLORING DEEP FEAR THROUGH WORKING WITH BODY AND HEART
The presentation will show a deeper process of experiencing fear originating in heart failure in infancy. the session starts with the patient telling about his panic attacks during the corona and then goes on to demonstrate processing consecutive fear waves and establishing a new relationship between the patient and his heartbeat. The work is done through focusing on body sensation and will demonstrate how giving courage and support to the patient while encouraging him to feel his fear brings him to a new feeling of strength and stops panic attacks triggered by perceiving the danger from the corona. this workshop is an elaboration of the work presented in the first session but with a different patient and with a set of different interventions.
Participants can participate even if they did not participate in the first session as the major idea of processing fear to completion will be explained again in a more concise way.
