Teaching The Brain To Heal - Understanding Autonomic Nervous System and its Therapeutic Application
This workshop will explore and explain the function of the Autonomic Nervous System as it relates to the functioning of the brain and our emotional reactivity. The therapists familiarity with the functioning of this system, enables them to see and process their clients' reactive behaviours in a new light. With this knowledge, therapist can guide the client to awareness and freedom of choice in their emotional state as well as their ability to choose their responses. As it will be demonstrated in this workshop, the functioning of the Autonomic Nervous System can be clearly viewed and processed within the framework of all evidence based modalities including CBT, EMDR, Psychodynamic, Ego State, body based modalities and more. This workshop will include demonstration of some techniques and participants will have the opportunity to practice a technique in a break out session.

Class 2: 1:45-4:45PM EST
This course explores a systematic and structured conceptual model for crisis assessment and intervention that facilitates planning for effective brief treatment in outpatient psychiatric clinics, community mental health centers, counseling centers, or crisis intervention settings. Application of Roberts' seven-stage crisis intervention model can facilitate the clinician's effective intervening by emphasizing rapid assessment of the client's problem and resources, collaborating on goal selection and attainment, finding alternative coping methods, developing a working alliance, and building upon the client's strengths. This course clarifies the distinct differences between disaster management and crisis intervention and when each is critically needed. This workshop will address many core skills pertinent to suicide prevention.
