BT10 Workshop 03 - Children, Families, and Trauma: A Relational Approach - Kenneth Hardy, PhD
Ignoring the impact of the trauma on the client’s family overlooks powerful dynamics that are crucial to treatment outcome. Participants in this workshop will learn how to involve the trauma sufferer’s partner and other family members as resources in the healing process.
BT10 Workshop 04 - Radical Self-Acceptance and Self-Forgiveness - Maggie Phillips, PhD
This workshop explores the practice of radical self-acceptance and self-forgiveness as an antidote to the suffering that stems from loneliness, loss, alienation, past trauma, physical and emotional pain, and health disorders. Participants will explore the links between self-regulation, self-forgiveness, and radical acceptance. We will also explore the practice of mindfulness and hypnotic self-suggestion as ways to address imbalances while strengthening feelings of well-being and happiness. The model of radical forgiveness as a spiritual practice and as a product of spiritual intelligence will also be discussed.
BT10 Workshop 05 - Strategic Techniques for Controlling Worry - Reid Wilson, PhD
We will explore the fundamental structure of worry—how it ignores data that isn’t negative, how it squeezes out room for corrective information, and how it gives rise to erroneous beliefs. Participants will then learn practical strategies, based on the latest research, on how to challenge worry, including courting it rather than trying to avoid it.
