There are multiple explanations and theories to explain the creation of anxiety, depression and trauma creation. Many emphasize pathology, permanence of conditions and use multi-syllable words and encourage medical interventions to treat symptoms. This paradigm is often not effective for improving the lives of individuals treated. This course looks at non-medical underpinnings to conceptualize the creation of anxiety, depression and trauma. This conceptualization when understood by the clinician; makes them a better facilitator and co-creator in the treatment process. A natural, holistic understanding also empowers the clinician and client and moves all parties involved closer to health.
Attachment, trauma, sexual compulsivity, performance anxiety and community norms make gay sex tricky. Addressing this with clients is difficult too. This workshop defines sexual norms for gay men and teaches interventions and hypnosis scripts to maximize brief treatment.
BT14 Topical Panel 02 - Post Traumatic Disorders - Francine Shapiro, PhD, Bill O’Hanlon, MS, and Bessel van der Kolk, MD
Compare and contrast clinical philosophical perspectives of experts.
This presentation will provide therapeutic guidelines to help identify the source of a wide range of clinical problems, and demonstrate how they can be addressed. EMDR therapy is widely recognized as an effective trauma treatment by organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association and the World Health Organization. In addition, 20 randomized studies demonstrate positive effects of the eye movement component. Research has also clearly demonstrated that certain kinds of life experiences lay the foundation for both mental and physical problems. Clinical and neurobiological research demonstrates that EMDR therapy directly addresses the physiological basis of clinical symptoms and dysfunction.
This workshop will demonstrate ways to implement the core tasks of psychotherapy with individuals with Complex PTSD and ways to provide integrated treatment for comorbid disorders such as Prolong and complicated grief, suicidality and substance abuse disorders. A Case Conceptualization Model will be offered that informs treatment decision making. Specific evidence-based interventions will be examined.

There are many explanations and theories to explain the creation of anxiety, depression and trauma. Unfortunately, many emphasize pathology, permanence of symptoms, and bio-physiological paradigms to explain. This paradigm is often not effective for improving the lives of individuals treated. This course looks at the non-medical underpinnings to conceptualize the creation of anxiety, depression and trauma. This conceptualization when understood by the clinician; makes them a better facilitator and co-creator in the treatment process. A natural, holistic understanding also empowers the clinician and client and moves all parties involved closer to health.
BT16 Short Course 30 - A Better Life Through Neuroscience and the Human Touch: Havening - Carol Nack, MSW, David Chametsky and Ira ScottIntroducing an extraordinary application of a recently acquired knowledge in the field of neuroscience. The techniques described are based in evolutionary biology. They offer a person the opportunity to live a healthier, hopefully happier, and more productive life. Long standing psychological problems are resolved and disturbing memories fade into the irretrievable past, just a story that lacks the previous affect.
This workshop presents the Generative Psychotherapy approach to human states of suffering--depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, etc. This practical and positive approach assumes that each core human experience has equivalent potential to be positive or negative, depending on the human relationship to it; and thus focuses on how problems may be transformed to resources by skillful human connection.
