Talking in psychotherapy is important. And there are many quality tools that help you go beyond talk. Does your therapeutic tool kit include approaches that purposefully and directly influence the body, sensory experience, and consciousness itself?  

Effective psychotherapy helps people regulate the flow of information and energy within themselves and between themselves and others.  The goal is to develop flexible and adaptive strategies to create meaningful and joyful lives, sometimes in the face of challenges and trauma.

Discover an integrative framework that includes the latest in neuroscience, trauma-informed treatment, resource and resilience based approaches and energy psychology.

You’ll learn specific tools that will significantly increase your effectiveness and flexibility as a therapist. For instance, when your clients are immobilized by trauma or overwhelming affect, can you help them resolve the problem in a matter of minutes?  After this workshop you will. 

We will focus beyond DSM diagnoses to patterns of information and energy flow on multiple aspects of the body, mind, spirit and relationship.  After this experiential training you will walk away with skills you can immediately use.

First, we will focus on building a framework that allows you to integrate all of the approaches learned. The ability to be able to move seamlessly between talking, body and energy approaches will be taught as well as linking each strategy to specific solvable treatment goals.  Rapid approaches to affect regulation and emotional stabilization will be covered. Then we will focus on two practices that shift the flow of awareness; Dan Siegel’s Wheel of Awareness exercises and a self-contained treatment for processing traumatic memories without abreaction.

We will learn how to use emotional freedom techniques (EFT) and other energy psychology approaches. With over 60 studies published in refereed journals, these approaches are both evidenced-based and clinically flexible.  And then we will spend time dedicated to putting it all together so that you can make these approaches your own.  We will emphasize therapeutic presence, sharpening clinical acumen and intuition.  We will apply all of these approaches to different contexts such as anxiety, panic attacks, and couples work.
