Therapeutic Toolkit (hard copy book and mp3s)
This package includes the Developing a Secure Self book (2020, hard copy) in a convenient spiral-bound edition, and all the Imaginal Nurturing guided imagery MP3s. Included in the book are organizational tools which may be copied for your own clinical use. A “Talk to the Child” bookmark and a balanced affect scale are tucked inside. Shipping charge applies. Developing a Secure Self: An Attachment-Based Approach to Adult Psychotherapy (2020 edition) presents an approach that evolved out of my search to find a focused way in which to directly address the needs of my clients that are rooted in early insecure attachment relationships. Please go to the “Developing a Secure Self” page for more information about this method and for responses from therapists using it.
The 178 pages of this book include principles, dozens of clinical examples, sample Imaginal Nurturing scripts and organizational tools. The “Talk to the Child” bookmark with reminders of the Imaginal Nurturing guided imagery process may help you begin to be comfortable working with I-N and make the shift to using this approach responsively and spontaneously. A detailed table of contents is on the Book and Toolkit page.
MP3 files of all the recorded guided imageries (from both “I’m So Glad You’re Here” and “Adventuring Spirit”) will be sent on receipt of your order. Details of recordings are on the Guided Imagery page.
