The Adler Academy of Minnesota sponsored a workshop on "Movement and the Uncomfortable" on December 10th.
Two of our outstanding local Adlerians presented, involved, and inspired the participants. Joe Noble and Lori Thibodeau, have established a "Bridging Program" to help divorcing families, especially parents, work through hurt, anger, and the conflict of this most life altering experience. This program is fully based in, and utilizes Adler on a minute-to-minute, and activity-to-activity basis. As participants, we experienced their wisdom and expertise as we went through the class. The whole process was very engaging, enlightening, and confirming that the Adler training we share, is the way to help these families adapt and overcome struggle and severe difficulties. When asked if they would repeat this workshop, Joe and Lori said yes. We would love to sponsor this again. All the Adlerian input, the skills, and the exercises would sharpen the practice of anyone dealing with clients. Please let us know your interest. John R.
Lori Thibodeau and Joe Noble presented their Bridging Parental Conflict class, designed for family members stuck in situations that range from uncomfortable to painfully conflicted. They’ve identified patterns that people in these situations experience, and use conversation, role-plays, and audience discussion to demonstrate new solutions – bridge building – for parents, blended families, legal guardians, estranged parents, and more. Behind the scenes, the class is fully Adlerian. You can see how horizontal and vertical striving, the need to belong, feel secure and have a place, the rules of misbehavior and the courage to be imperfect all have roles in moving forward in a healthy way. It’s an engaging, thought-provoking presentation. Paulette H.
