2018 IIBA Professional Development Workshop (PDW)

Prof. Development Workshop (PDW)
Data: : 19/10/2018 13:00 - 23/10/2018 13:00

Local: CTL (Centro De Treinamento De Líderes) - Rua Alves Ribeiro, 41.635-540 Salvador (Brazil)

2018 IIBA Professional Development Workshop
October 19 - 23, 2018

This PDW will address how, as a clinician, we work with shame, how we may get caught in our own shame while working with our clients and how to maintain or repair the connection that shame disrupts. 

Shame resides in the dark recesses of our psyches. It restricts the flow of energy in our bodies and deadens the spirit. Shame inhibits us from contact with others. Rage makes active our inner helplessness and shame. Expressing rage moves energy out, freeing, temporarily, built up tension. Rage feels powerful and protects us from feeling the shame within. However, the cycle of shame and rage will again be put into process if the underlying shame is not acknowledged and addressed.


The PDW is an unique occasion for all participants to practice and to learn more as they are supervised in their clinical work, to share with colleagues from many different places, to attend theoretical presentations (or present if required), and to be supported and helped in their professional development in a safe, secure and empathetic atmosphere. 

We are looking forward to welcoming a group of committed, open, dedicated Bioenergetic therapists for four days of intense work, exciting learning, and enriching personal development.

Testimonials from past PDWs


“… Even though I had been to a PDW before, I was surprised to discover that part of me was afraid to go: afraid I would be judged, evaluated and found lacking. It was exactly the opposite. I was supported in my growth as a person and as a bioenergetic therapist. I "worked" as a therapist in front of my peers (and betters) and received so much supportive and useful feedback, suggestions and exposure to new techniques that I am eager to get back to work tomorrow and put some of this new knowledge into practice. …”


“… As a Jungian Orientated Bioenergetic Therapist I was strongly drawn to the workshop topic.  I decided to go with some fear and reservation about how the Bioenergetic part of the training would be for me. I was pleasantly surprised at the graceful and loving acceptance and appreciation of different modes of body work being honoured. The International atmosphere was powerfully nurturing and affirming on deep levels for me. …”


"… This was one of the best experiences of training and supervision I have ever had.  I wouldn’t have enjoyed this difficult experience of presenting and teaching as much as I finally did, had there not been all those conditions. …”


“… I can honestly say that this was the best course I have attended in over 30 years of continuing adult education. …”


“… A unique opportunity that should not be missed-powerful, supportive learning. …”
