It was a pleasure to educate the new generation about time perspective theory, balanced time perspective profile and introduce various practical interventions.
Students got to see different cases, for example, a typical profile of someone struggling with anxiety, depressive episode or work-related stress and burnout, etc.
We looked into the process of working with a prospective client step-by-step:
– Performing initial assessment of the time perspective profile.
– Working with the profile: taking into account the individual, culture and context of the current situation.
– Learned about ‘reading between the lines’ of the profile numbers.
– Discussed and exercised various tools and interventions aimed at creating a higher level of balance in one’s time perspective.
Students were introduced to different exercises aimed at activating a positive past, or mindful present or possible future. For example, we went on a silent mindful walk, shared our observations and experiences after it, and discussed the importance of noticing how we notice.
As a result of the workshop, participants shared that they felt more relaxed, that they became more aware about their own past, present and future, that working with clients is not a “one recipe that fits all” but that it is a journey and discovery of a personal approach and that they have the tools that they can apply themselves to improve the level of balance of their time perspectives.
It has been a great pleasure to lead this workshop and we are looking forward to seeing how the approaches discussed today will be applied in daily lives.
