Abstract

This session examines active and passive approaches to imaging and visualisation. It describes the standard approach and rationale for guided imagery for personal development and problem solving, and the use of active imaging to address issues of concern. A contrast is made between imaging where the facilitator uses prompts to influence the participants imagination when they are in a relaxed state, and where participants are actively involved in directing the course of the facilitators suggestions, though the facilitators never gets to know the content of the issue addressed. The different forms of imagery people experience and common ways of tackling unwanted images are also addressed. The session includes several imaging exercises and an opportunity to discuss such experiences and their outcomes.
