Enlivening & Vitalizing

The Therapeutic Field

“The term vitalization signifies the fostering of novel experience, the ignition of an enlivening internal process that can come about through deep engagement with the other.

The notion of vitalization encompasses a confluence of ideas concerning the creation of new experience, progressive action, generativity and emergence.

It also allows for the exploration of the ways in which the therapist can be a catalyst for change, and examines how enactment itself can be generative and life-giving.”
