5. Closing Experiential

Key points for the Closing Experiential: 

  • Summarize information at the end of the meeting for conclusion
  • As in the first experiential: Take caution while doing this experiential to remember that you are NOT providing therapy. This is solely a way to offer an example of a technique.

          Use this time to give an example of an intervention that would benefit a client/patient from their setting. Demonstrate techniques and describe more in detail what is going on throughout the experiential (either during or after). Because you have just gone over the “Case Studies” section, you can also use this time to demonstrate interventions used for those specific case studies. Use your best judgment when it comes to selecting a final experiential, make sure that it transitions well and wraps-up the in-service.

          Sometimes during an experiential you may also use readings from materials you have cited previously in the in-service. You may select a work of a particularly interesting author and choose to guide the group through a mindfulness experiential. Make sure to correctly cite the source.

EXAMPLE:

 Rotary Improvisation- Eyes All Over the Body

Peggy Hackney (2002), Making Connections, Page 143

  • You may choose to directly read a selected section to guide movement through the exercise if time and space allows. You may also choose to adapt your own version of a reading or movement exploration that fits your needs. Make sure to still cite and make note that this is a rendition of a pre-existing movement exploration.
