BT10 Short Course 42 - Overcome Procrastination by Integrating Your Ego-States - Neil Fiore, PhD
Clients who procrastinate feel stuck, lack motivation, and reveal their ambivalence by stating “I have to finish all this work but I don’t want to.” This workshop builds self-efficacy by integrating conflicting parts with the Prefrontal Cortex Executive Function of choice. Optimal Performance and desensitization techniques focus clients on “choosing when to start,” separating self-worth from work, and planning alternatives to avoidant behaviors.
BT10 Short Course 43 - Therapeutic Narratives to Spiritual Images - Elisa Gottheil, PhD

This approach utilizes principles of psychodynamic theory such as projection, as well as narrative therapy and hypnotherapy principles. With Elisa Gottheil.
BT10 Short Course 44 - A Multi-Layered Developmental Approach to Couples' Counseling: Using the Brain's Neuroplasticity to Achieve Permanent Results - Roberta Karant, PhD, Stefan Deutsch
Couples in distress minimize and numb their pain by avoiding contact. By writing a vision of what they both want, the therapist can focus the couple on the future. By combining Gestalt concepts with those popularized by Hendrix and others, therapists can have a powerful effect on quickening the healing process. New sessions will involve writing, note taking, and an agreed upon assignment to be practiced during the week. With Roberta Karant and Stefan Deutsch.
