In depth psychotherapy is the cornerstone of the IAM experience. The core of the individual’s work is the inner exploration and healing of the wounds from our history. An understanding of the Inner Politic offers us a technique to work out our disruptive inner life and bring about the possibility of its resolution within us.
The IAM Center is able to offer individually designed, intensive therapeutic retreats, based on these principles. The individual can create a private therapeutic experience for themselves that can range from just an overnight stay to a few days.
The creative experience brings us in touch with ourselves like nothing else. The IAM Center has been dedicated to expressive work as a way of healing.
Art, movement, dance, written word, storytelling…all bring us to deeper levels of creativity and understanding. The use of the expressive arts can be woven into ones total therapeutic experience.
Rapid Eye Technology
RET is a healing modality developed from the already occurring, natural and safe Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep process. It is a technique that releases trauma from neural pathways of the brain. Through accessing and releasing stored cell memory, ones dysfunctional patterns are changed.
The IAM Center offers two groups.
The ‘Creative Healing Group’ meets alternate months for a weekend of therapeutic work and is an ongoing process.
The ‘Training Group’ is for mental health professionals as well as those in the healing professions. The group works from the theory of the inner politic model, which they learn through their own process. Supervision in their individual fields is also a part of the group experience. This group meets three times a year.
The IAM Center offers experiential workshops. These workshops are on the themes either of ‘The Inner Politic’ or ‘Feelings’. These are weekend experiences offered periodically. Check ‘Upcoming Events’ for scheduling.
