Has your need to help others in your personal or professional life ever caused anxiety or an empty feeling of numbness? Have you ever felt frustrated that you could not fix your mother, father, or other members of your family, or guilty or selfish because you said or wanted to say,"No"? This workshop introduces the defense mechanism of agency, the habitual and somatically maintained emotional and behavioral patterns of trying to please others at your own expense. You will learn how to identify your own and others' agency behaviors, how agency develops in childhood, and how it detracts from feeling alive in your adult life. You will learn how to differentiate an act of agency from an act of
caring, and become more authentically attuned to yourself and others through somatic and cognitive interventions.

This workshop is an introduction to the IBP professional training program open to both mental health and allied professionals. Private Post Secondary provider.
