Building on the keynote on “taking in the good,” we’ll explore ways to use positive experiences to soothe and potentially replace negative material (e.g., relationship upsets, pain from childhood). Through discussion and experiential activities, we’ll match healing experiences to disturbances in the brain’s core motivational systems (Avoid harm, Approach reward, Attach to “us”).

Educational Objectives:

  1. Teach clients how to pair positive and negative experiences to soothe and replace the negative ones.
  2. Match key positive experiences to disturbances in the brain’s core motivational systems.
