This keynote address will provide an overview of the interdisciplinary view of the mind and mental health. Over 60,000 mental health providers have been asked about their formal education in these areas and less than 5% have had seminars defining these two basic aspects of psychotherapy. This presentation will offer a view based on science of the definition of the mind and well-being and explore ways in which brief therapy can foster rapid and lasting change.
Participants in this workshop will explore ways to apply the understanding of attachment, trauma, brain and mind in diagnosing and treating relationship problems. A goal of the treatment is to accelerate the access to emotions in the more withdrawn partner, leading to more open communication between partners. Lecture, discussion and videotape demonstration will clarify how traumas of early disturbed bonding experiences can be seen and treated in a conjoint session.
Dealing with narcissistic and borderline defenses that block healthy relating can be quite challenging when dealing with couples. This short course will address ways to creatively apply core aspects of Rossi's mind-body approach to develop treatment plans and interventions that can facilitate the containment of these defenses and help reorganize the dynamics of the couple system. The integration of the psychodynamic system and cognitive behavioral perspectives will be addresses throughout the course.
This workshop will expand on the premise of the keynote by more deeply exploring a working definition of the mind and mental health. At the core of this approach is the role of neural integration in developing a flexible, adaptive, coherent, energized and stable state flow of the mind. This FACES state enables the clinician to feel the pulse of wellbeing as moving between the extremes of rigidity and chaos.
An introductory presentation reviewing how our daily mental activity may turn on the activity-dependent gene expression and protein synthesis cycle to construct and reconstruct the neural networks of our mind-brain and facilitate healing of the body. We will explore innovative approaches to facilitating the four-stage creative process in therapeutic hypnosis and psychotherapy in a group process and individual demonstrations.
Recent neuroscience research suggests that empathy, rapport and transference may be mediated by our mirror neurons. this new view of the basic talent of all psychotherapists will be explored during group processes and individual demonstrations utilizing Rossi's innovative approaches to therapeutic hypnosis and psychotherapy.
Recent knowledge breakthroughs in neuroscience and neurophysiology explain why stress and anxiety are increasing despite enormous developments in psychotherapy. The work of Daniel Siegel, Ernest Rossi, Stephen Porges, Aronson & Steele and Jonathan Haidt act as pieces of a puzzle that explain why therapy can fail; and how this "winner/loser world" mindset is an unseen barrier to our more natural creative, interpersonal processes. A new world view is presented that can act as a lasting, transformational brief therapy.
This workshop is an introductory presentation about how our daily mental activity turns on the activity-dependent gene expression and protein synthesis cycle to construct and reconstruct the neural networks of our brain. We will experience the four-stage creative process of art, science and psychotherapy during a group induction of therapeutic hypnosis.
A new, easy-to-learn 20 minute protocol for facilitating the ideo-plastic faculty of therapeutic hypnosis and brief psychotherapy. It is neuroscience evidence-based process for facilitating problem solving via (1) Optimized gene expression, (2) Reduced cellular oxidation, & (3) Reduced inflammation.
