Director: Nada Lou | Producer: Nada Lou
Focus Years: 1998 | Country: Canada
Focusing is the practice named by Dr. Gendlin. It originated from the research and insight of Dr. Eugene Gendlin, who organized the skills into a teachable practice. Focusing teaches us to pause the on-going situation in life and create a potential space for new possibilities of acting and living forward.
This practice, developed from the Philosophy of the Implicit, teaches us how to apply open attention to something which is directly experienced but is not in words.
In this clip, Dr. Gendlin is videotaped sending his message via DVD to a large Focusing Conference held in Japan in 1998. In a simple language he explains what Focusing is and also offers guidelines for psychotherapists how to enhance their practice with Focusing skills.
