Demystifying NTU™

This workshop will introduce participants to the basic elements of our approach and through a didactic and experiential delivery, show its application to client systems work. Participants will learn the foundational elements of NTU™ philosophy, including the principles, and assumptions. Additionally,  participants will be exposed to the NTU™ phases and the use of breathing and mindfulness exercises that are the core of the intervention process.  NTU™ Psychotherapy (pronounced in-to), is an approach to working with families that honors spirituality, culture, family connections, strengths and talents, systemic interconnectedness, and values as a part of the therapeutic process.  This workshop will present the audience with a foundational introduction to the NTU™ Principles of Harmony, Balance, Interconnectedness, and Authenticity and demonstrate how these principles can be used to individuals and systems recognize and maximize their inner resources and strengths, enhance relationships and connectedness with others, and function harmoniously in the broader environment.
