Using sound as an adjunct to psychological and medical intervention is a relatively new concept. This presentation gives a thorough experiential view of how sound, represented visually as well as auditorily, can influence the treatment in a positive way. Sound, and its frequencies, may indeed be a part of the medicine of the future.
Participants will learn powerful techniques to facilitate the integration of individual and couples therapy through meditation, guided imagery, and energy centers in the body. Beginning exploration will focus on the healing capacity found innately in the "Mind- Body Couples System" (Mind Body Systems Therapy( TM) through the use of intense affect to unify significant others through transforming fear, anger, and grief into understanding ,compassion, love, and forgiveness. The class will be both didactic and experiential.
In the same way that all the information about each person is in its DNA, the information of the Whole Universe is present in each one of its parts. I call that information our Universal Wisdom. Participants will learn to contact their Universal Wisdom and to utilize it for making their practice more efficient. Managing Chronic Pain is one of the biggest challenges for Health Professionals and their clients. Participants will learn a five steps exercise for managing Chronic Pain utilizing Universal Wisdom.
Drawing on Erickson's idea of the common everyday trance, we will find an easy and respectful method of inviting anyone into hypnosis. Because hypnosis creates an experience, we can explore ways of assisting any individual to move beyond the possibility of a preferred outcome that brief therapy is so helpful for and allowing them to create a direct and bodily felt experience of that desired outcome.
What sets the Solution Focused Approach apart is the clinician’s deliberate focus on what the client wants instead of focusing on what the client does not want or even their presenting problem. A clinician using this approach must be comfortable enough with solution building language to be able to engage clients into a detailed conversation of their preferred future even though the client may be experience significant troubles in their life. In this workshop the presenter will demonstrate using the language of the Solution Focused Approach with clients, using video examples of real sessions, even when they are experiencing significant pain. The presenter will also lead group exercises and discussion to allow the group to practice using the skills demonstrated.
Clients or patients often unintentionally present hints indicating current in-control behaviors or a desire for change. Practitioners listen carefully responding to these “throw away comments” and emphasize their significance even though the patient was hardly aware that the statement contains a wealth of meaning and provides a foundation for change.
Most Therapists have experienced clients sabotaging themselves repeatedly despite learning new skills in therapy. Many get caught in the childhood negative and traumatic experiences that do not allow clarity to learn and sustain new effective skills. Learn about Awareness Integration Model, a structured brief therapeutic approach that releases negative core beliefs and attached emotional charge to clear the past, set goals and action plans to reach and live a fulfilled life.
We will explore the major themes, dimensions, and conceptualizations of resiliency from communal and psycho-social perspectives. We will discuss how to mobilize resiliency within the framework of time-limited soul care and how to capitalize on the dynamic interaction among traditions, norms, values, and heritages, to further the healthy coping skills and thriving abilities. We will argue that resiliency, is not only an intrapsychic potential or individualistic strategy, but also a group resource and a collective faculty, richly stored in the community. Thus, resiliency is a clear function of culture, shared identity, and generational wisdom.
The purpose of this workshop is to introduce to a “renaissance” in behavioral health through series of principles drawn from research from within the field and adjacent disciplines. Participants in this session will learn how these principles and associated strategies form the foundation for effective and efficient practice.
