Footprintings®: Ego State Therapy in Three Dimensions
Susan Dowell, LCSW, MSW, BCD and Rick Miller, MSW, LICSW
In the context of this presentation, Ms. Dowell will be discussing a product that she has created and trademarked and for which she receives financial remuneration.
Footprintings, a dynamic new treatment approach, provides effective and easy to use tools for observing and experiencing different Self States, accessing resources and repairing relational perspectives between them. Using color footprints to diagram relationships between Parts, participants can step into different Self States as they work on healing these internal relationships.
Recent findings have shown different Self States clustering in different firing patterns in the brain and filtering perceptions quite differently. There is also research that suggests changes in posture may effect cognitive states. This three dimensional approach provides a constructive format for gaining a deeper connection to the body experience, affect and cognitive orientation of each of Self State, as well as providing a direct opportunity to learn more about the unique process of communication between Parts. Furthermore this process lays the groundwork for reorganizing and forging new and supportive internal alliances.
In this workshop, we will offer an introduction to the theory and practice of Footprintings. Attendees will then have a chance to participate in a three-dimensional practicum. In addition, an overview of the background literature and research for this new approach will be provided.
At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to…
- Describe how an understanding of State Dependent Memory and Perception can
enhance our ability to work with Ego States;
- Describe one way Footprintings can be used to deepen our understanding of individual
Ego States; and
- Discuss how two ways Footprintings can foster a three dimensional view of the internal
relationships between Ego States.
