Each training is led by an ISEP Certified Trainer who will guide you, and other participants, through different modalities, give you insight into why and how they work, as well as when and how they are most effective. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn first-hand how to facilitate in a similar fashion with tips, tools, and techniques given to you by your Trainer.
Whether you’re just now being introduced to experiential modalities, or you’re already an Experiential Professional looking to continue your growth, abilities and skill sets, ISEP Trainings are unparalleled in the mental and emotional health industry.
This is true partly because ISEP trainings are, you guessed it, experiential. But it's also because all trainings are backed by leading science and research that much of the mental and emotional health industry is still ignoring.
Who Are ISEP Trainings For?
Your Practice Deserves A Level-Up
"Show Me Don't Tell Me"
This training focuses on the theoretical basis of action-oriented experiential methodologies. Behavioral health professionals often use experiential therapy in the treatment of trauma, attachment repair, behavior disorders, anger, grief and loss recovery, substance abuse, and various types of physical and behavioral addictions or compulsive behaviors.
Participants will learn techniques to help their clients become free of painful, unhappy, or otherwise bad feelings from past experiences, to change the nature of their current and future relationships, and live up to their full potential. Experiential exercises can be used in conjunction with different styles of traditional talk therapy and will include exercises for use with individuals, groups, couples, private practice, and clinical treatment therapists.
Participants gain hands-on experience in applying experiential methods. Additionally, there is an emphasis on visual communication, experiential teaching, and presenting a “learning by doing” method. Basic psychodrama techniques are also reviewed. The training combines teaching presentations with live demonstration.
