          Case Study guidelines (Minimum 1500 words)

          As an IMT practitioner, you are joining therapeutic dialogues that can rock your world, and that of your clients, and facilitate growth, connection and greater flow in life. Case studies are a wonderful opportunity to present your work as you incorporate and assimilate IMT in it, in a way that can clearly demonstrate theoretical and clinical understandings and your uniqueness. 

          In writing a case study, you may adopt a psychodynamic or psychoanalytic style (i.e. it can be very academic) but please make sure the relationship is presented in a clear way. You are expected to demonstrate in your writing how you are using IMT, so this is not about doctor-patient relationship but a journal of an experiential voyage. 

          You are expected to:
          • Briefly present the client’s background (making sure his/her name and background are sufficiently disguised) 
          • Discuss your relationship, transference dynamics, your interventions and dialogue. 
          • Demonstrate your use of IMT skills, and IMT theoretical understandings. 
          • Demonstrate your use of supervision to work with this client. 
          • Present any material that you believe is relevant, or that you wish to discuss in a connected, embodied and relational way. 

          You need not present a ‘completed’ therapeutic journey. We are not necessarily looking for ‘happy endings’ but a clear demonstration of your commitment to practice and connectedness.

          The essay can take any format that presents your IMT work in a way you are comfortable with. It can be formal and academic, or a work of art. I am looking to see a real reflective engagement with your own processes,

          Please email the essay in a word format, with Arial font, size 12 and 1.5 lines spacing. Sources should be references in APA style
