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. This approach stresses the importance of moment-to-moment tracking and dyadic regulation with an emphasis on secure attachment as a primary treatment objective. It is designed to help the clinician identify those strategies most appropriate for a given case. The first part of the workshop will provide an overview of the most useful concepts and strategies from a variety of trauma treatment models–including IFS, EMDR, Hypnosis, CBT, Ego State Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and SE, AEDP, DBT, and Structural Dissociation.

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. Working individually and in dyads, participants will experiment with multiple ways… State / Province: Massachusetts. Contact Phone Number: 508-603-6800. Contact Email: institute@cape.org.

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. The topics of emotional and social intelligence and where they fit with cognitive intelligence wil… State / Province: Massachusetts. Contact Phone Number: 508-603-6800.

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. This course will also provide the opportunity to participants to identify and wor… State / Province: Massachusetts. Contact Phone Number: 508-603-6800. Contact Email: institute@cape.org.

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. Throughout the week we will be drawing primarily on two methods of contemporary psychotherapy–Hakomi and Int… State / Province: Massachusetts. Contact Phone Number: 508-603-6800.

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. Through lectures, live and video demonstrations, and practical experiential exercises, we learn ways to help our clients live well, richly, and meaningfully, without first having to eliminate sources of emotional and psychologic… State / Province: Massachusetts.

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.

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: Illinois.

CBT: A Primer for Psychotherapists

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma The influence of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is widening. From its beginnings as a treatment for specific phobias, CBT is now indicated as primary or adjunctive treatment for a wide range of mood, anxiety, and psychotic disorders. Simultaneously, cognitive impairments are increasingly being viewed as core disturbances in several neuropsychiatric disorders and are benefited by a cognitive approach such as cognitive remediation. At the same time, psychodynamic and other forms of psychotherapy remain extremely popular and sought-after methods of treatment. CBT and psychodynamic psychotherapy represent two powerful methods of treatment. Th purpose of this course is to help dynamically oriented psychotherapists navigate the field of CBT, understand its methodology, and select interventions which may be of use in their current clinical work.

Frontiers of Trauma Treatment - Bessel van der Kolk, MD

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma Advances in the neurosciences, attachment research, and information processing show how brain function is shaped by experience and that life itself can continually transform perception and biology. The memory imprints of trauma(s) are held in physical sensations, bodily states, and habitual action patterns. This causes the entire human organism to continuously react to current experiences as a replay of the past. Trauma causes people to remain trapped in the past by leaving deep, ongoing imprints on the entire organism–from their immune systems to their internal physical rhythms. Neither words nor compassion suffice in accessing these deep imprints on body and brain. To overcome the tyranny of the past one needs to learn to befriend one’s damaged inner world and learn to deal with initially overwhelming sensations and arousal levels. Hence, recovery requires facing the imprint of trauma on the self as helpless, enraged, betrayed, ashamed, and endangered. The cultivation of a deep sense of physical safet… State / Province: Massachusetts. Contact Phone Number: 508-603-6800. Contact Email: institute@cape.org. Event Registration Link: .

The Anxiety Epidemic in Kids and Teens: A Workshop for Clinicians- Paul Foxman, PhD

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma Anxiety disorders are now recognized as the most common, chronic and costly emotional conditions in the United States, as well as globally. The soaring trend towards anxiety has been accelerated by world events, violence in the media (including video games and even television programming directed at children), a high divorce rate and family breakdown, economic stress, a challenged school system and other stresses. These sources have produced a generation of young people susceptible to all the anxiety disorders seen in adults. Our challenge is to recognize anxiety in kids and teens, and to help them cope. In this workshop, you will learn ways to “connect” with anxious children and teens, and inspire them to learn how to manage and even prevent anxiety. Based on adolescent brain research, the nuances of working with teens will be included. You will also acquire strategies to help anxious parents (“bulldozers,” “helicopters” and “snowplows”) be more effective in supporting their anxious children.

Leading from Within: Conscious Living and Service - Gloria Burgess, PhD

Personal & Professional Development During this time of deep disruption and global transition, many of us in the helping professions are faced with an increasingly complex landscape of suffering and demanding levels of care. As dedicated servants to our clients, organizations, and families, it is not uncommon for us to excel at prioritizing everyone and everything on our “to do lists.” In doing so, we often lose sight of our own self and fail to nurture the core values that initially distinguished us as leaders and critical resources in our communities. In this interactive workshop, Dr. Gloria Burgess, expert in leadership formation and development, master facilitator, and acclaimed poet and author, invites you to explore the values, actions, choices, and contributions that make you a leader. And she guides you on how to bring it back to your clients and workplace.

Achieving Lasting Treatment Changes for Clients with Substance Abuse and Co-occurring Disorders – Donald Meichenbaum, PhD

Addictions The United States is in the midst of a substance abuse epidemic, with some 72,000 individuals who have died within the last 12 months from opioid abuse. It has been estimated by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration that 119 million people in the U.S. use some form of psychotropic drugs (44% of the population). Often, the abuse of substances is complicated by the co-occurrence of psychiatric disorders such as Complex PTSD, Anxiety, and Depressive Disorders with accompanying suicidality and interpersonal violence. Of those who receive treatment, some 75% will relapse. This workshop will consider ways to achieve "lasting changes" in treatment through various approaches including the implementation of evidence-based, phase-oriented integrative core tasks of psychotherapy. A Case Conceptualization Model of risk and protective factors that informs both assessment and treatment decision-making will be presented.

Clinical Applications of the Polyvagal Theory: The Transformative Power of Feeling Safe - Stephen Porges, PhD

Mind, Body, & Brain Safety is critical in enabling humans to optimize their potential. The neurophysiological processes associated with feeling safe are a prerequisite not only for social behavior but also for accessing both the higher brain structures that enable humans to be creative and generative and the lower brain structures involved in regulating health, growth, and restoration.  The Polyvagal Theory explains how social behavior turns off defenses and promotes opportunities to feel safe.  It provides an innovative model to understand bodily responses to trauma and stress and the importance of the client’s physiological state in mediating the effectiveness of clinical treatments. From a Polyvagal perspective, interventions that target the capacity to feel safe and use social behavior to regulate physiological state can be effective in treating psychological disorders that are dependent on defense systems. In this workshop, through presentations, experiential exercises, and class discussion, we will learn the principles… State / Province: Massachusetts. Contact Phone Number: 508-603-6800.

Embodied Self-Experience: Enhancing Awareness in Clinical Practice through Meditation, Movement, and Voice - Licia Sky, LMT, BFA

Mind, Body, & Brain In this highly experiential workshop, participants will explore embodiment, self-experience, and how clinicians can use both with clients who have a history of trauma. The latest research shows that our ability to be aware of our bodies impacts how we process sensations and memories, and how we heal from traumatic events. When we have intolerable sensations such as gut wrench and heartache, our heart races, our breathing becomes shallow, our abilities to track time, be present, and process language become diminished. As therapists, our own body awareness is an important barometer to track the states of both our clients and us within each session. In this workshop, Licia guides discovery through meditation, movement, theater exercises and play to show how this awareness affects the therapeutic container--safety and ability to be present with what emerges within the session. Based on the upcoming book, The Body Keeps the Score Workbook, this program offers an array of non-verbal, experiential exercises drawn… State / Province: Massachusetts.

Ericksonian Hypnosis: Advanced Techniques for Beginners - Jeffrey Zeig, PhD

Mind, Body, & Brain Hypnosis is the fundamental paradigm for an experiential approach—hypnosis is the source from which psychotherapy originated. What is hypnosis? What is the Ericksonian difference? How can I help patients elicit a constructive trance (or therapeutic) experience? How can I more powerfully present ideas and concepts? How can I take experiential methods from hypnosis and apply them to improve my practice without the necessity of formal trance? This workshop answers these questions and more. You will discover how to elicit a trance state and learn its essential elements from an Ericksonian perspective. You will enhance responsiveness and compliance through the application of novel assessment criteria based on the client’s values. Powerful hypnotic language forms can be tailored so that a trance (and therapy) is developed in the most appropriate and efficient way for each patient. You will see demonstration inductions and work in small groups. Videotapes of Milton Erickson at work will be shown and discussed. Th… State / Province: Massachusetts.

Putting It All Together: Changing the Valence of Emotional Memory with Mindfulness-Based Experiential Therapies - Lana Epstein, MA, LICSW

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma Recent research on Memory Reconsolidation, the reorganization of an existing memory, illustrates that memory is not as stable as a mountain, as once believed.  It proposes that the valence of a given emotionally laden incident can be reworked (or reconsolidated).  Since these emotionally informed learnings circumscribe procedural behavior--especially in the areas of sense of self and attachment--we and our clients can benefit from understanding the underlying principles of memory reconsolidation and the therapies best suited for that process. Highlighting body-based interventions and the commonalities of seemingly disparate theoretical concepts and therapeutic modalities, this workshop will demonstrate the ways in which a number of mindfulness-based, experiential therapies can work together to shift the valence of emotional memory—whether those memories be trauma- or attachment-based. The workshop will highlight interventions from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and EMDR. It will also include interventions from… State / Province: Massachusetts. Contact Phone Number: 508-603-6800.

The Worm at the Core: On the Role of Death in Life - Sheldon Solomon, PhD

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma The uniquely human awareness of death causes potentially debilitating terror that we “manage” by embracing cultural worldviews that give us a sense that we are valuable persons in a meaningful universe, and thus eligible for literal or symbolic immortality.  The quest for immortality underlies some of humankind’s most noble achievements.  However, it also engenders some of our most ignominious affectations, including: distain for people with different beliefs; unwavering support for charismatic leaders; contempt for the environment; insatiable pursuit of money and stuff; and reckless disregard for our physical well-being. Research demonstrates that death anxiety affects almost every domain of our lives.  Understanding the role of death in life by helping professionals will improve assessment and treatment both individually and systemically, ultimately promoting physical, emotional, and societal wellbeing.

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

Couples, Kids, Families, & Sexuality From childhood through adulthood, ADHD presents not only problems, but also 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 much of the 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 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 stream of positive energy, which drives treatment to much greater success than can be achieved otherwise. Interweaving advanced material and innovative new treatments with introductory information, aimed both at professionals and non-professionals, this seminar will explore… State / Province: Massachusetts.

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.

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.

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.
