We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”

Guided imagery taps into both the wounds and the inner resiliency that often lie below the conscious level of awareness. This introductory experiential workshop is for practicing professionals who want to develop fluency in working with symbolic inner life as an effective way to facilitate self-care and also reach therapeutic goals with those we serve.

An interactive mode of imagery facilitation will be taught and practiced, with a focus on its application for anxiety. In addition, the foundation will be laid for further training in using guided imagery for treating trauma and depression.

Alignment and usefulness of an interactive mode of guided imagery within integrative medicine, and with analytic, transpersonal, humanistic and cognitive therapies will be discussed.

The empirical basis for the clinical application of guided imagery for anxiety will be presented, including contraindications and caveats, along with a summary of empirical support for application of guided imagery in treating trauma and depression.

This workshop, which will be 50% lecture and 50% experiential, is at an introductory level. No prior experience with guided imagery is required.


This program is designed to help you:

  • Define “guided imagery," including the distinction between scripted and an interactive mode of guided imagery, and compare it to hypnosis, relaxation, meditation and fantasy.
  • Describe the alignment of an interactive mode of guided imagery with analytic transpersonal, humanistic and cognitive therapies.
  • Identify 3 uses of guided imagery in clinical practice.
  • Describe 2 clinical applications for working with the symbols that arise in clients and the infrastructure for working with the images to optimize therapeutic goals.
  • List 7 contraindications and caveats for using guided imagery in clinical practice.
  • Use techniques studied to facilitate an effective, safe, interactive mode of guided imagery.
