“… say a client is wearing a color the therapist does not like – then how will this affect the therapeutic interaction?” ( Kossak, 2015, p. 100) I laughed. How would you as a therapist respond to that scenario? When colors are also vibration, how would you describe the above experience for you – as attunement or misattunement?
This is a book on Attunement and Embodied Empathy in Expressive Arts Therapy. I was both delighted and challenged when asked to write a review on the book. The experience in a workshop in Hong Kong with Professor Mitchell Kossak about two years ago has left traces on my body that make me delighted … but now, could I really understand his more than 30 years of wisdom on the subject of attunement and be able to respond to it?
“… 假若案主穿了一件治療師不喜歡的顔色的衣服, 這將會如何影響著兩人治療的關係?”( Kossak, 2015, p. 100) 我禁不住笑了。作為一個治療師你會如何回應以上的情況? 如果顔色是空氣中的震盪, 你會怎麼樣去形容上面的經驗 - 同調還是失調?
這是一本關於同調與具身化共情的表達藝術治療專書。對於被邀請為此撰寫介紹評論感到喜悅與挑戰。曾參加作者在香港舉辦的工作坊, 兩年前的經驗仍然在身體摓跳動, 讓我感到雀躍 … 但現在要去撰寫此文, 我將如何回應他三十多年對於同調這個題目的豐富智慧?
