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,
