"What are the words you do not yet have? What do you need to say?" -Audre Lorde.

Mindful Founder and Executive Director, Yoon Kane will be co-leading a half-day experiential training group with Saralyn Masselink in Los Angeles. This training opportunity for therapists will explore cultural expectations as a ‘passionate bad fit’ for women and ways they are unconsciously repeated in group.

From a young age, women receive messages about how to be nice, compliant, accommodate others, and gain approval, both from the family and the communities they grow up in. These messages arrest women’s natural development of a sense of self-worth and entitlement. There is a dichotomy introduced into young female psyches that sets women up to believe that the cost of being powerful is a loss of connection and belonging.

These culturally-sanctioned beliefs that govern patterns of behavior are unconscious and are played out and repeated in group dynamics. Group also has the potential to encourage people to have new experiences that foster new beliefs and paradigms and offers opportunities to try on and test out fresh ideas and ways of being.

These experiential training workshops will explore questions such as: What are women’s relationships to having power and agency? What does the fear of power communicate about the female self and early relationships with caregivers? How can group provide reparative experiences that counter dysfunctional cultural norms? The group leader can help members become conscious of these limiting dynamics and establish new norms that offer the space for maturational experiences previously limited by socio-cultural conditions.

WOMEN, SEX + POWER AT THE AMERICAN GROUP PSYCHOTHERAPY ASSOCIATION'S ANNUAL CONFERENCE

LEADERS: YOON IM KANE, LCSW 

This will be a 2.5 hour experiential group to introduce therapists to the work of Women, Sex + Power.  

- Are you uncomfortable exploring desire, sex, power, and control in your work with clients?

- Are you more comfortable in the role of the nurturing Madonna than the exiting Whore?

- Do you desire more vitality and aliveness in your work with clients?

In this experiential group, we'll look at issues of desire, sex, attraction, power, and control. Members will gain here-and-now experience working with these feelings, their resistances to these feelings, and gain more experience and comfort with their own feelings of desire, attraction, power, and control.  The greater access we as therapists have to these feelings, the better we are to help our clients' navigate theirs.
