Awareness-Based Systems Leadership: Cultivating Generative Social Fields and Systems Change 2019 IPNB Pre-conference

Mind, Body, & Brain Faculty: Mette Miriam Boell, Otto Scharmer, Peter Senge, Dan Siegel, and Diana Chapman Walsh This day-long workshop will provide immersive experiential exercises and conceptual discussions with a focus on how we can change systems underlying our relationships with people and the planet. The presenters of the workshop have been working for decades on how to understand and transform systems related to our interpersonal, societal, and environmental health. One of those collective efforts has been the study and cultivation of “generative social fields” in which families, schools, businesses, governments, and the larger society in which we live can create relational interactions that support the nurturance of compassion, connection, curiosity and well-being. Within such generative fields, a sense of belonging, meaning and effective action emerges. Come join us for a day of deep experiential learning intended for anyone interested in how to cultivate the individual development and pervasive leadership capa… State / Province: California.

Timeless Wisdom, Timely Action: Interconnection, Awareness and Identity in the Cultivation of Compassion and Well-being

Mind, Body, & Brain We are at a pivotal moment in our collective history in which the human mind & sense of self that emerges are changing the face of our living world. Sometimes moving rapidly between denial & despair, our often isolated efforts to make change in the world can lead us to feelings of frustration, fear, & futility. Yet working together, there is great hope. Insights into our mental life & how to cultivate it well — getting to know & empower our consciousness, emotions, beliefs, identity, relationships & behavior — can determine how life on this planet unfolds now & for generations to come. Inspired by these basic ideas & the mind skills needed for an awakening of awareness to a larger belonging as a self integrated fully with the living world we share, this gathering of clinicians, contemplative practitioners, ecological activists, educators, religious leaders, scientists, & others, engages in direct conversations about how to harness the human capacity to direct cultural evolution for wise action toward a mor… State / Province: California.

Mastering the Clinical Conversation

Mind, Body, & Brain Though interest in universal psychological treatment processes is at an all-time high, the element shared by virtually all psychotherapies—language—has largely been ignored throughout evidence-based psychotherapy models.

Radiant Intimacy – Helen Fisher, Terry Real, Diane Poole Heller, Michaela Boehm, Steve James, Celeste Hirschman, Dimitry Yakoushkin, & Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo

Couples, Kids, Families, & Sexuality We all long for love. We long to be intimately connected to ourselves and others. For some, a partnership or marriage is the natural outcome of this longing. Others find alternative styles of intimacy more fulfilling. For most of us, love and sexuality can be complex and confusing. We live in a dynamic time of transition: from post-patriarchy relationships, gender equality, and new definitions of femininity and masculinity to new styles of parenting and modern sexual dynamics. Radiant intimacy is an emerging field of exploration bringing awareness to the topics of relationships, sexuality, and love. It draws on psychology, trauma theory, modern evolutionary biology, and scientific sex research.

You are never gonna keep me down. - Chumbawamba In the late 90’s these lyrics were a tribute to the resilience of ordinary people. Loss, trauma, failure, or simply the anxiety and fear that come from living with insecurity and uncertainty, can knock us down. Imagine spending six days in the Blue Ridge Mountains, gathered with a group of ordinary people learning resources for “getting up again.” Carl Jung said, “We are not what happened to us, we are what we wish to become.” At the Haden Institute we believe most people wish to become the best self they are created to be.

Getting the Most Out of Mindfulness and Compassion: Tailoring the Practice to the Person

Mind, Body, & Brain It’s now well known that mindfulness and compassion practices can enhance virtually any form of psychotherapy and have been proven effective in treating anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and other disorders.

But mindfulness and compassion practices are not one-size-fits-all remedies. Researchers are now differentiating the effects of focused attention, open monitoring, loving-kindness, compassion, and equanimity techniques.

NARM Practitioner Training for Developmental Trauma, MODULE 1

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) is an integrative clinical approach toward healing attachment, relational and developmental trauma. Developed by Dr. Larry Heller, author of Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship, NARM is a cutting-edge model that integrates a bottom-up (somatic) and top-down (psychodynamic; CBT) approach within a context of interpersonal neurobiology. It also relies heavily on mindfulness in its practice. NARM is unique in the way it weaves together bottom-up and top-down processing toward re-organizing and transforming old patterns that limit our health, aliveness, and fulfillment. With our understanding of trauma shifting toward greater focus on identifying and addressing Complex Trauma (C-PTSD), thanks to the ACEs Study, NARM provides a powerful model for working with the early, unconscious patterns of disconnection that deeply affect our identity, emotions, physiology, behavior and… State / Province: California.

Bouncing Back: The Neuroscience of Coping with Disappointment, Difficulty, even Disaster- Linda Graham, MFT

Mind, Body, & Brain Dealing effectively with challenges and crises is the core of resilience and well-being.  Helping clients develop flexible and adaptive strategies for coping with everyday disappointments, existential dread, and extraordinary disasters is the heart of the therapeutic process. Helping clients harness the brain’s processes of change to rewire coping strategies that are defensive, dysfunctional, and blocking of growth, and to encode new more flexible patterns of response, is the focus of this workshop. Modern neuroscience is teaching us how to use the brain’s innate neuroplasticity to rewire coping behaviors, even when they are seemingly “stuck” and intractable.  Clinicians will learn through didactics, experiential exercises, and group discussions, which tools and techniques of brain change best help clients reverse the impact of stress and trauma, come out of anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, guilt and shame, deepen the self-compassion and empathy that connect them to their inner resources, strengthen… State / Province: Massachusetts.

AEDP: Attachment in Action- Molly Eldridge, LICSW

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, AEDP, developed by Diana Fosha, is one of the leading new therapies worldwide. Championing our innate healing capacities, AEDP is an integrative model that draws on attachment theory, affective neuroscience, interpersonal neurobiology, body-focused approaches, short-term dynamic psychotherapies, and transformational studies. AEDP, importantly, shows us how to use theory to affect clinical change. It explicates how to engender secure attachment in our different therapeutic dyads with specific intervention strategies for expanding self-self attachment and self-other relational capacities. Through moment-to-moment, in-depth processing of sometimes difficult emotional and relational experiences, AEDP helps clients recover their sense of core self and experience increased resilience and a renewed zest for life.  AEDP is in many ways a natural, instinctual way of working. Often practitioners say it feels like a therapeutic “home” and energizes and enlivens their wo… State / Province: Massachusetts. Contact Phone Number: 508-603-6800. Contact Email: institute@cape.org.

The Vertex of Change: Leveraging Moments of Grief, Illness, Hardship and Sudden Change to Accelerate Growth – Maria Sirois, PsyD

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma As clinicians, supervisors, and managers we are frequently trained to navigate territories of wellness and illness, of capacity and incapacity as if they exist on a spectrum. On one end we are well, at the other end we are ill. Yet, research in the fields of positive psychology and resilience enable us to understand that foundational change often occurs at the point of paradox: when we can enable our clients, supervisees and teams to hold happiness and grief, anxiety and hope, imperfection and magnificence with equal appreciation, wisdom and care.  Integrating research that considers the best of humanity, the best of systems and of organizations, we will examine the role of positivity, appreciative inquiry, and emerging models of authenticity and meaning to consider how to elevate positive deviancy when clients/supervisees are struggling deeply. This approach enables us to complement our current models of treatment with supportive tools and strategies, while providing a meta-framework that potentiates h… State / Province: Massachusetts.

Advancing Inclusion: Turning Us and Them into We- Deborah Plummer, PhD

Personal & Professional Development Amid explosive race, gender, and immigration issues, the public struggle between advocates of religious liberties and advocates for LGBT equality, campaigns for hiring more people with disabilities, and movements such as the Black Lives Matter and #MeToo, we can be confident that diversity issues will not be relegated to obscurity. Technological advances have allowed us to get our information from customized sources tailored to align with what we want to know, understand and believe, making it increasingly challenging to build coalitions and advance inclusion toward the benefit of all. Critically important to the inclusion effort are diversity practitioners, OD consultants, psychologists, educators, and health and mental health professionals who act as informed diversity leaders, transformative change agents and compassionate healers capable of building inclusive organizations and peaceful communities.

Treating Complex Trauma: Optimal Integration of Treatment Models- Deborah Korn, PsyD

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma An overwhelming array of treatment models is available to therapists working with chronically traumatized clients.  What are the common denominators across these models, and what are the unique contributions of each? This workshop offers a conceptual framework and practical, phase-oriented approach to working with complicated, dysregulated trauma clients.

Building Leadership Competency: The Contemporary Use of Organization Development Principles for All - Robert Hartl

Personal & Professional Development The term organization development (OD) was coined in the late 1950s by Douglas McGregor and Dick Beckhard while consulting at General Mills. Defined in a positivist era, OD reflected the belief that an objective reality was discoverable through scientific methods. Beckhard then described OD as “an effort planned, organization-wide, and managed from the top.” Today, many question the utility of methods developed during the first iteration of OD as they apply to a post-modern world that reflects socially-constructed realities and where concepts like emergence and self-organizing systems dominate the change literature. Those thrust into modern leadership roles learn quickly that they must address both “objective reality” and the diverse perceptions people have of it.   Today OD means different things to different people. Often confused with “change management” or HR, it is increasingly clear that OD is not the exclusive domain of consultants. To the contrary, modern “OD practitioners” include leaders and s… State / Province: Massachusetts. Contact Phone Number: 508-603-6800. Contact Email: institute@cape.org. Event Registration Link: .

Polyvagal Theory in Therapy: Practical Applications for Treating Trauma - Deb Dana, LCSW

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma A Polyvagal Theory guided approach to therapy begins with helping clients map their autonomic profiles and track their moment to moment movement along the autonomic hierarchy. With this foundation, the essential clinical questions address how to help clients interrupt habitual response patterns and find safety in a state of engagement. Polyvagal Theory gives therapists a guide to becoming a co-regulating resource and concrete ways to help clients find, and savor, experiences of safety. Working from a foundation of Polyvagal Theory, therapists have practical ways to effectively help clients identify and interrupt their familiar response patterns and strategies to shape their autonomic nervous systems toward safety and connection. In this experiential workshop participants will first learn the basics of Polyvagal Theory and then work with practices designed to bring the power of Polyvagal Theory directly into clinical work.

Developing Better Leaders through Coaching, Emotional Intelligence, Renewal and Resonant Relationships - Richard E. Boyatzis, PhD & Scott N. Taylor, PhD

Personal & Professional Development Leadership often appears inadequate to take us to new and better futures together. In all sectors, organizations and in every country, we face a dearth of leaders prepared to help us with a positive and effective vision and execution to move forward. With a few exceptions, we need better leaders. This means we need better ways to develop those stepping up to and seeking the responsibility of leadership. Using their research and that of close colleagues, Professors Richard E. Boyatzis and Scott N. Taylor will lead the class through a series of exercises, reviewing research showing how effective leaders use emotional, social and cognitive intelligence to build better relationships, ones that resonate with the people around them. To reach and sustain that degree of effectiveness, leaders need to engage in renewal practices for themselves and the people around them —renewing the potency of their relationships.

Meditation and Mindfulness in Clinical Practice: Enhancing Treatment Effectiveness and Personal Wellbeing

Mind, Body, & Brain Mindfulness meditation is currently one of the most widely researched treatment methods in mental and behavioral health. Clinical research has demonstrated its effectiveness for managing a wide range of conditions associated with emotional distress, including anxiety, depression, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic pain, and substance abuse, as well as enhancing physical and psychological wellbeing.  Although scientific research on meditation can be traced to the early 1970’s, the relatively recent surge of research on mindfulness has left many medical and mental health professionals curious, and perhaps unclear, about what exactly is meant by mindfulness in the present context, how to practice and teach it their patients, and the evidence base to support it. The purpose of this course is to offer participants an up-to-date review of the theory, research, and practice of mindfulness in health care (including its application to the practice of psychotherapy), to increase the effectiveness of… State / Province: Massachusetts.

Internal Family Systems Workshop- Richard Schwartz, PhD

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma The Internal Family Systems Model is a method of therapy, which fosters transformation, gently, quickly, and effectively. It views multiplicity of mind as our natural state and our “parts” as sub personalities that may be healed and transformed by bringing the Self into its rightful role as leader of the internal system. The Self, a core of valuable leadership qualities, is our true nature–compassionate and loving. Although IFS has been most widely used as a treatment for trauma, it is a flexible model that provides abundant opportunities for application. This workshop is designed for therapists with little exposure to IFS as well as those who know the basics of IFS, but have trouble when clients resist, have particularly difficult parts, or when it comes to using the model with couples or larger systems. We will begin with an overview of IFS and then move on to the deeper exploration of issues that arise during treatment.

Growing Up and Waking Up: Applied Mindfulness in Psychotherapy and Buddhist Practice - Flint Sparks, PhD

Mind, Body, & Brain Everyone wants to be free from unnecessary suffering. This was the Buddha’s only concern, and every practice he taught served to encourage the liberation of a clear mind and a warm heart. The relief of emotional suffering is also the focus of contemporary psychotherapy, and the wide range of techniques now available all serve this important goal. Both approaches are profoundly transformative, and when skillfully woven together they pave the way for increased vitality and a deeper sense of peace, freeing the burden of unnecessary suffering. Such an integrated approach shows us how to grow up and wake up to who and what we truly are. The week will be geared toward understanding the function of mindfulness as the core practice that links both paths to greater well-being. Each day we will explore these integrated teachings and actively engage in mindful practices to experientially taste their potential.

Essential Ingredients of Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy for Couples (AEDPfC)- David Mars, PhD, MFT & Karen Pando-Mars, MFT

Couples, Kids, Families, & Sexuality “AEDPfC evokes and amplifies the felt experience of love, and helps couple members shift patterns of insecurity to new patterns that form a secure base.  The movement from fear to love and from survival to thriving, is the expression of transformance: the indwelling biological drive to evolve.” (Fosha 2008, Mars 2011). To engage transformance in AEDPfC, the clinician guides couple members to talk directly to each other from the first moments of the opening session. For many couple therapists, this is a stretch: What if they start escalating? The AEDPfC therapist shapes, with attentiveness and kindness, increasingly authentic and safe interactions. Facilitating dialogue that helps couple members to speak mindfully and be heard is a cultivated art and practice.  In this workshop, fitting for clinicians new to AEDPfC and those with experience, we will help participants to learn effective and embodied Process Language to help couples perceive, receive, and express their moment-to-moment somatic experience.… State / Province: Massachusetts.

Harnessing the Transformative Power of Mindful ACT Therapy: How to Live Well When Life Is Hard - John Forsyth, PhD & Jamie Forsyth, PhD

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based approach that balances mindfulness and acceptance processes with commitment and behavior change in the service of living a more vital life. Led by a dynamic husband and wife team, this workshop will introduce ACT, both as a model and intervention technology, and illustrate its use across a broad set of problem areas that are commonly seen in mental health settings. This work can be challenging for both therapists and clients alike, for much of ACT work involves contacting difficult and painful psychological content without defense and for a purpose other than psychological relief. Thus, understanding the application and integration of the ACT model of psychological health and suffering is essential for effective ACT work.

Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors: Overcoming Self-Alienation – Janina Fisher, PhD

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma Childhood abuse necessitates self-alienation: we must disown that humiliating “bad child” and work harder to be the “good child” acceptable to our attachment figures. In the end, we survive trauma at the cost of disowning and dissociating from our most wounded selves. While longing to be feel safe and welcome, traumatized individuals find themselves in conflict: alternating between clinging to others and pushing them away, hating themselves or hating others, yearning to be seen while trying to be invisible. Years later, these clients present in therapy with symptoms of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, diagnoses of bipolar and borderline personality disorder, and a distorted or absent sense of identity.   This workshop offers a practical hand’s on approach to traumatized clients with underlying issues of self-alienation and self-hatred by helping them to recognize how the trauma has left them fragmented and at war within their own minds and bodies.
