Category: Cat 1 CE Credit Hours: 3.0

OBJECTIVES: Participants should be able to: Understand the integration of intuition in the clinical hour Identify types of intuition Identify their personal style of intuitive knowing Apply understanding of intuition to a psychotherapy case.

DESCRIPTION: Current research is focusing on defining intuition, how it operates, and the importance of intuitively derived information. The problem in advancing our understanding of intuition is the very nature of the subject, commonly defined across traditions as knowing without knowing how you know. The lack of conscious effort and awareness of the intuitive process has proven to be a barrier to academic understanding though clinicians use it regularly, whether they define what they are doing as using intuition or not. Research by cognitive psychologists, psi researchers, counseling and psychotherapy practitioners, along with studies focusing on clinical intuition, are contributing to a growing body of knowledge that is bringing academic understanding and practice experience together. This course will review the literature and propose the inclusion of intuition as a foundational aspect of practice. The relational and sensory aspects of intuitive communication will be illustrated through case discussion. Clinicians with all levels of experience will benefit from this workshop.
