July 2010, I was fortunate to be given an opportunity to deliver a keynote presentation at the 9th Conference of the World Association of Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapy and Counseling in Rome. I felt at one with the audience. Many contacts flourished and much happened subsequently, for instance my collaboration with Mick Cooper which is to be published in Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapies soon.
Originally envisioned by Carl Rogers to objectively measure what happens in therapy, Klein, Mathieu, Gendlin and Kiesler developed The Experiencing Scales in 1970. Dr Ikemi explains, teaches and gives examples how this treasure can be used in therapy, in teaching counseling, and listening skills. Included in this DVD is the story and notes of his paper in which he discusses the significance of empowering the implicitly functioning relationship, in both its theoretical and practical dimensions. (Ikemi, A. (2011) "Empowering the Implicitly Functioning Relationship" is published in Person Centered & Experiential Psychotherapies, 10(1): 28-42)...

The theme presented on this DVD comes from experience in working in clinical settings and teaching. The richness and interconnection of topics Dr.Ikemi presents is too abundant to give credit in this limited space. An interwoven flow of skills, experiences, stories and memories offers the viewer many methods for genuine deep inner guidance and healing....
Boy, did I hate arithmetic! How could something divided by zero become zero? What happens to this one apple when it is divided by zero, and becomes zero? “Come on, that’s nonsense,” I thought. In arithmetic class I always wondered if the reality I was seeing was real or a dream. I didn’t know this was a serious philosophical issue until much later. I thought I was done with math for life when I enrolled in Psych 101 at Boston College. But I soon found I had to struggle with the square root of N again, because statistics were essential in psychology. I split right away, moving next door to the philosophy department. Eventually I ended up double majoring in psychology and philosophy. When I asked one of my profs where I could go for advanced study in both psychology and philosophy, she suggested I contact Professor Eugene Gendlin at the University of Chicago. ...
Client-Centered Therapy developed by Carl Rogers and Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy developed by Eugene Gendlin share much, and yet they differ in many ways. This paper discusses the bodily felt sense as a significant phenomenon in both Rogers’ and Gendlin’s theories. Through an examination of their theories, the author suggests that it may have been Rogers who first made rudimentary observations of bodily felt senses, or “sensory and visceral experiences”, and their significance in therapy. Rogers also made some observations before Eugene Gendlin regarding the experiential process, although Rogers made no explicit attempt to facilitate that process. Different theoretical paradigms used by Rogers and Gendlin to understand the bodily felt sense are discussed. Moreover the paper suggests that later, Rogers seems to have assimilated parts of Gendlin’s experiential theory, signifying a general understanding between them: that is, the experiential process happens in a certain manner of relationship characterized by empahty and acceptance.
