In recent years, there has been an explosive interest in the introduction of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) practices into the psychotherapy/counseling session across therapeutic orientations. In addition to acquiring core mindfulness skills themselves, therapists often struggle with the nuts and bolts of how to introduce and sustain mindfulness practice in treatment planning. This workshop will provide a bridge to the introduction of MBSR within the REBT framework.
In this interactive workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of REBT’s theory of emotional and behavioral disturbance. Techniques for identifying and restructuring irrational beliefs will be taught, as well as generating homework assignments to reinforce session content. Strategies for motivating clients to agree on the goals and tasks of therapy will also be discussed. A live demonstration with a volunteer will bring the theory and its applications to light.
Suicide has been a significant public health crisis for a long time and it is still surrounded by limited public awareness and understanding. Furthermore, existing literature suggests that graduate programs may not provide adequate training in working with suicidal clients. The question is always the same: “What am I supposed to ask next?” This workshop will focus on the RE&CBT model for suicidality by describing two novel instruments: The Suicidaction Potential Theory (SPT) and the Commitment to Life Inventory (CLI). Participants are encouraged to come prepared with clinical scenarios for role plays and discussions.
Working with trauma can present a variety of unique challenges which many therapists may not understand nor be familiar with. If you work with clients reporting loss of self, agonizing shame, emotional numbness, inability to bridge the gap between present and past, inability to feel safe, inability to connect with their body and/or self, inability to find words for their feelings due to trauma, you can benefit greatly from this workshop.
This full-day workshop will draw on what we now know from the neuroscience revolution and will focus on several paths to recovery. The theoretical models and treatment approaches will be based on principles of Rational Emotive &Cognitive Behavior Therapy (RE&CBT) and on the latest research findings in the area of trauma and dissociation.
