“Not for the Feint of Heart” Open Workshop

April 1, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - April 3, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

With Dori Middleman, MD and Mark Putnam, MD

Please ask us about Covid requirements to attend

If you’re “feint of heart,” you avoid confronting the emotional injuries or habits that prevent you from enjoying life to the fullest. You feint this way and that, preserving the status quo instead of moving past obstacles. This workshop is not for the feint of heart. It’s for people who have a passionate commitment to creating healthy relationships within healthy lives. It offers opportunities to benefit from intensive individual healing work, which may involve emotional injuries rooted in the past, recurring themes or patterns of dysfunction, or personal longings in the here and now. Whatever the content of your work, you will:

  • Discover the issues that are immediately obstructing the quality of your life
  • Learn contact skills to authentically and effectively express yourself and assure healthy interaction with others
  • Risk working deeply in an atmosphere of trust and mutual support
  • Expand your capacity for generosity and compassion for yourself and others

This workshop is particularly helpful for human-relations professionals and those committed to a path of personal betterment. Incorporating Mariah Gladis’ effective and innovative use of music, Dori and Mark will blend individual and group Gestalt work in an environment of trust, compassion, and emotional generosity.

Healthy meals and snacks are provided.

CEUs: This program has been approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists and Professional Counselors for 21 contact hours of continuing education toward licensure renewal.
