Mindfulness: Inside and Outside the Clinical Hour

Mind, Body, & Brain Mindfulness and compassion practices are among the most rapidly expanding and widely researched psychotherapeutic interventions today. They hold great promise not only for clinicians’ own personal development, but also as remarkably powerful tools to augment virtually every form of treatment. Mindfulness and compassion are not, however, one size- fits-all remedies. Practices need to be tailored to fit the needs of particular individuals. And to really reap the benefits of mindfulness and compassion, it’s important for clinicians to personally experience their effects. This seminar provides an up-to-date review of the theory and practice of mindfulness meditation and compassion practices from their ancient origins to modern brain science and psychotherapy, along with opportunities for participants to cultivate their own personal practice. After reviewing how they work to alleviate psychological distress,we will explore which practices are best suited to different patient populations.

Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness and Well-Being - 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. Positive psychology has shed newfound light on the pursuit of happiness, and offers clinicians a valuable supplement to traditional approaches in their work with clients. In this seminar, 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 well-being, 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 pract… State / Province: Massachusetts.

Stuff That’s Loud: Integrating ERP and ACT for Youth with Anxiety and OCD

Couples, Kids, Families, & Sexuality Youth with anxiety and OCD are often overwhelmed with “stuff that’s loud,” or thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations that can be terrifying. Thus, they get stuck in spirals of avoidance that lead to deep social, academic, and family costs. Without effective therapy, this can go on for months or years. Despite the need for intervention, it often takes families years to find clinicians trained in exposure-based treatment, a potent and effective approach. However, many clinicians are hesitant to engage young people in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) because it’s challenging to help individuals face their fears; a significant proportion of youngsters refuse treatment; of those who engage, 20-40% fail to make or maintain gains. During this course, Lisa Coyne and Ben Sedley will teach you how to use exposure-based treatment from a process-based perspective, tied to evidence-based principles. You will learn about exposure from the bottom up, to look at the barriers in using exposure in your own pract… State / Province: -United States-. Alabama. Alaska. Arizona. Arkansas. California.

Attachment-Focused EMDR for Addiction: Healing Relational Trauma and Rewiring the Addicted Brain With EMDR-Based Treatment

Addictions While there are a number of programs targeted toward helping people overcome addiction, recovery often remains elusive or short-lived for all too many. Using EMDR-related techniques to help support motivation, increase affect regulation, and increase control over dysfunctional behaviors, we may be better able to break the addiction cycle, and support our clients in a life free of addictions. Attachment-focused EMDR extends the use and benefits of EMDR and bilateral stimulation for use with clients who have been typically less responsive to traditional EMDR protocols due to acute or chronic relational trauma and attachment deficits. Over two days, you will learn a holistic, integrative approach for treating addictions and dysfunctional behaviors that is brain-wise, resource-based, trauma-informed, and attachment-focused.

Clinical Applications of Mindfulness and Compassion

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma 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. These practices also have an even greater potential—they can challenge our conventional view of ourselves and the world, waking us up from limiting beliefs about who we are and how we can find happiness. 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. To be safe and effective, practices need to be tailored to fit the needs of individual clients—and this workshop will show you how. Whatever your treatment orientation—from ACT, CBT, or DBT to psychodynamic, interpersonal, or humanistic approaches—these evidence-based mindfulness and compassion tools can enhance your work with clients, making all aspects of your practice more effective… State / Province: Ohio.

Healing from Infidelity: How to be an Expert Guide

Couples, Kids, Families, & Sexuality Helping couples navigate infidelity is one of the most challenging issues a couples’ therapist can face. They come to us broken, confused and despairing; desperate for guidance on how to escape the daily suffering they are each experiencing and inflicting on one another.

The Ghost in You: Psychotherapy and the Art of Grieving

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma American Academy of Psychotherapists 64th Annual Institute & Conference Hyatt Regency Savannah, GA    The Ghost in You: Psychotherapy and the Art of Grieving “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.”—William Faulkner Loss is integral to the human experience. There is no attachment without the risk and eventuality of loss. The response to loss, however, determines our engagement in the present moment, as unfinished business can exist in a ghostly fashion. The ability (or inability) to navigate grief has a profound impact on the quality and duration of our relationships. Mourning can be a vehicle for, or an obstacle to, growth.  Over the course of these five days, we will take a deep dive into conscious and unconscious factors that influence how we, as therapists and individuals, metabolize grief. Particular attention will be paid to the potential for growth inherent in addressing what could, otherwise, be a scary topic.

Clinical Applications of Mindfulness and Compassion

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma 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. These practices also have an even greater potential—they can challenge our conventional view of ourselves and the world, waking us up from limiting beliefs about who we are and how we can find happiness. 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. To be safe and effective, practices need to be tailored to fit the needs of individual clients—and this workshop will show you how. Whatever your treatment orientation—from ACT, CBT, or DBT to psychodynamic, interpersonal, or humanistic approaches—these evidence-based mindfulness and compassion tools can enhance your work with clients, making all aspects of your practice more effective… State / Province: Missouri.
