Internal Family Systems Workshop – Richard Schwartz, PhD

Couples, Kids, Families, & Sexuality 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. This course will also provide the opportunity to participants to identify and work… State / Province: Massachusetts. Contact Phone Number: (888) 394-9293. Contact Email: ldematteo@cape.org.

An Introduction to the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM)

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 relationships… State / Province: Illinois.

The Nuts and Bolts of AEDP: Translating Theory info Clinical Practice- Natasha Prenn, LCSW and Molly Eldridge, LICSW

Mind, Body, & Brain Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is a transformation-based, healing-oriented model of therapy. It integrates and uses to clinical advantage all we now know about neuroplasticity, mother-infant research, dyadic resonance, developmental models, transformational studies, body-focused treatments, and attachment research and theory. AEDP is in many ways a natural, instinctual way of working, and yet it is not magic, it is not easy.  It is rather a rigorous treatment modality with very specific skills, interventions, sequences of interventions, and maps that translate AEDP theory into how to work with AEDP clinically.  Appropriate for those new to AEDP and those with experience, this will be a nuts-and-bolts dig into how to do AEDP. Inside the magic, there is a clear and recognizable structure, the bones of AEDP. Natasha and Molly will practice the language of actual interventions, the steps and sequences that allow the work to flow, and the maps and protocols that inform our decision-mak… State / Province: Massachusetts.

Working with Mindfulness: Practices and Perspectives for Individuals and Organizations – Mirabai Bush

Mind, Body, & Brain Mindfulness is a contemplative practice that quiets the mind in order to cultivate a personal capacity for deep concentration and insight in the face of the 10,000 distractions of everyday life.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Panic Disorder & Agoraphobia

At times, however, the response is activated under situations that are not life threatening. Individuals may experience these panic attacks in a variety of situations.

Unwrapping the Gifts: A Strength-Based Approach to ADHD Across the LifeSpan – Edward Hallowell, MD

Couples, Kids, Families, & Sexuality From childhood through adulthood, ADHD presents both difficult dilemmas and unique opportunities for change, growth, and success. The goal of diagnosis and treatment is to transform ADHD from a chronic liability into an overall asset in life. The purpose of this seminar is to show how to do precisely that and to present all the exciting new information we have learned about ADHD in the past decade. In his work with people of all ages, Dr. Hallowell has learned that a strength-based approach to diagnosis and treatment leads to the best outcomes. The moment the clinician meets the patient or client, he or she looks for talents, skills, and strengths and builds a treatment plan to promote those first and foremost. This mobilizes hope, excitement, and a cascade of positive energy, which drives treatment to much greater success than is observed in other kinds of treatment.

Transforming Trauma: Using the AEDP Therapist’s Bold, Embodied Presence – SueAnne Piliero, PhD

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma This workshop is based on AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) which champions our innate healing capacities. AEDP has roots in and resonances with many disciplines — among them interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, emotion theory and affective neuroscience, body-focused approaches, and last but not least, transformational studies. AEDP uses specific intervention strategies for working explicitly, dyadically, and experientially with intense unresolved traumatic emotions. These transform suffering and foster patients' feeling deeply recognized and understood, safe and secure, and as a result, increasingly capable to reconnect to their Core Authentic Self. In this workshop, we will explore in depth what therapeutic presence really means, and how to bring our Selves more fully into the therapeutic relationship in order to enhance, deepen and accelerate the healing process. Through lecture and videotape of actual sessions you will see, hear, and witness how the most powerful tool in o… State / Province: Massachusetts. Contact Phone Number: (888) 394-9293.

Enhancing Your Therapeutic Impact – Jeffrey Zeig, PhD

Mind, Body, & Brain There's something both inspirational and humbling about watching the clinical work of master therapists like Virginia Satir, Carl Whitaker, Salvador Minuchin, and Milton Erickson. While it's tempting to think they have a unique therapeutic gift, it's even more helpful to ask, "How do they do it?" In this workshop, through demonstration and group practice, you’ll expand your own creativity and expressive range as a healer as we explore core dimensions of clinical craft, including methods for intensifying emotional impact, establishing attunement, harnessing nonverbal and paraverbal methods, and incorporating hypnotic communication. You’ll discover how to: Integrate elements of both the expressive and healing arts into your work; Use metaphors, visual images, and theatrical techniques to awaken clients from their unadaptive trances; Understand how the grammatical understructure both film and hypnosis offer new possibilities for helping clients access empowering resource states; and Elicit new beliefs, challe… State / Province: Massachusetts.

Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness and Wellbeing – Jonah Paquette, PsyD

Mind, Body, & Brain Although the field of clinical psychology has traditionally aimed to “fix what’s wrong,” the newer sub-field of positive psychology instead helps us to “build what’s strong.” In this experiential seminar, participants will learn about the nature of happiness, and discover how positive psychology can help us to increase happiness both in ourselves and in our clients in a powerful way. Participants will explore what it means to be happy, why happiness is so important, and why it can often feel so hard to come by. We will then explore 10 research-based principles for lasting wellbeing, drawing from positive psychology, mindfulness-based approaches, and cutting-edge neuroscience. In addition, we will introduce and put into practice over 50 evidence-based tools and techniques that can easily be implemented into clinical practice.

Get the most out of every session! A NEW modification that can enhance DTI

Personal & Professional Development Discrete trial instruction (DTI; Smith, 2001) has been widely used to teach a variety of skills to individuals with autism spectrum disorder. A new modification of DTI, referred to as instructive feedback, involves incorporating secondary targets into learning trials.

Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors – Janina Fisher, PhD

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma 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.  Participants will learn how to help their clients observe the parts they have embraced and identified with as 'me' and the trauma-related parts they have disowned and judged harshly.  Using interventions drawn from a number of therapeutic approaches (including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, and ego state therapy), the focus is on helping clients observe and accept all aspects of self with mindfulness-based interest and curiosity.  Techniques will be demonstrated that increase the capacity to feel for and with each part, that foster the sense of caring for young wounded parts, and that pave the way for growing "earned secure attachment" to ourselves.  You will learn to identify signs and symptoms of fragmentation and internal conflict and… State / Province: Massachusetts.

The Flexible Therapist Online Course with Jill Stoddard, PhD

Personal & Professional Development Six sessions, Wednesdays, Sept. 5-October 10, 3:30pm-5pm EST Psychological flexibility has been well established as a critical predictor of treatment outcome in psychotherapy. Despite the established importance of psychological flexibility for the client, little has been written about psychological flexibility of the clinician. Clinicians are not immune to negative thoughts and feelings about themselves, their clients, their work, or the present moment in the therapeutic context. Thus, fusion and experiential avoidance (i.e. psychological inflexibility) happening with the clinician could create significant barriers to optimal treatment. This course is designed to bring psychological flexibility for us as therapists to the forefront of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) delivery. Together, we will dig deep into our own struggles with experiential avoidance in the therapy room. We will unpack the dread, boredom, difficulties with empathy, and judgments we sometimes experience.

Working with the Body in Mind: Embodied Presence in Practice

Personal & Professional Development This highly experiential workshop will draw on knowledge from the frontiers of neuroscience and clinical practice to help practitioners exert a powerful, mindful influence on their client’s conscious and unconscious experience. The way in which we embody ourselves is integral to our experience of others, and to others’ experience of us – our impact. The messages we send before we even open our mouths are the ones that clients respond to most directly and most powerfully. Becoming more aware of these messages means becoming more aware of our physical carriage: the timbre, pace, and pitch of our voice; the speed of our gestures; the engagement of our facial expressions; the ebb and flow of our breathing; and more. Awareness of these typically unconscious aspects of our physical presence allows us to experiment with them, to gain greater and greater skill with them, and to recruit them as powerful allies in our work. Benefits 
Participants will:

An Introduction to the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM)

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 relationships… State / Province: Florida.
