In this workshop, we will offer tools you can use to help clients talk about, explore and heal the sexual shame that can arise at any stage in the life cycle — and help them towards a life-affirming sexuality. You will:
– Discover ways to help clients become aware of the many, often conflicting messages they received about body image and sexuality from family and society.
– Learn ways to help clients repair the disconnect between self and others — and between parts of the self — that has been created by shaming, inappropriate behavior or abuse.
– Develop tools for couples to understand their shame triggers and communicate about taboo sexual topics.
– Work with the shame that can cause and result from affairs.
– Identify challenges in being a sexual minority in society and the layers of shame that can occur.
– Unfreeze shame and open life force in a grounded and embodied way, helping clients to access and safely explore their sexual energy.

“I loved the online course. Zoom made it as close to reality as technologically possible. The class size was perfect, enough people for stimulating questions and conversation and small enough to feel intimate. The charts you provided will be so useful., I’m already benefiting watching the recordings, gleaning even more the second time around.”

Clinical Applications of Mindfulness and Compassion
Dec 5 – Dec 6 all-day

It’s now well known that mindfulness and compassion practices can enhance virtually any form of psychotherapy and have been proven effective in treating anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and other disorders. These practices also have an even greater potential—they can challenge our conventional view of ourselves and the world, waking us up from limiting beliefs about who we are and how we can find happiness.

But mindfulness and compassion practices are not one-size-fits-all remedies. Researchers are now differentiating the effects of focused attention, open monitoring, loving-kindness, compassion, and equanimity techniques. To be safe and effective, practices need to be tailored to fit the needs of individual clients—and this workshop will show you how. Whatever your treatment orientation—from ACT, CBT, or DBT to psychodynamic, interpersonal, or humanistic approaches—these evidence-based mindfulness and compassion tools can enhance your work with clients, making all aspects of your practice more effective.

Using Buddhist psychology and the latest brain and evolutionary science, Dr. Ron Siegel will cover the universal elements that underlie most psychological disorders, and how mindfulness and compassion can transform the lives of every client you treat.

3-Year Professional SE Training; Beginning 1 with Berns Galloway, MED, CCC, SEP
Feb 14 – Feb 17 all-day

The SE Professional Training provides a rich theoretical framework for understanding and addressing trauma physiology. Our educational model is highly experiential, offering you tangible skills that can be immediately integrated into your professional practice. The training is delivered through a combination of lectures, live demonstrations, guided practice sessions with fellow students, audio-visual case studies, and suggested readings. Because competent practice of SE requires direct clinical experience, as well as a refined somatic awareness and capacity for self-regulation, becoming an SE Practitioner (SEP) also entails receiving personal SE sessions to deepen your experiential knowledge of SE, and case consultations.

Our training program consists of 6-8 training modules of 4 to 6 days in length. The program spans 2½ to 3 years. Class sizes are optimized for a supportive learning experience. You will enjoy personalized attention both from your faculty member and from skillful training assistants.

Because SE supports regulation of the autonomic nervous system, which underlies every aspect of our physical, emotional, and psychological functioning, the applications of SE are diverse. SE enhances the depth, effectiveness, and outcome of psychotherapeutic interventions focused on relational, developmental, and psychodynamic issues; supports mood regulation, the reworking of addictive patterns, and the prevention or resolution of PTSD; aids medical professionals in unwinding challenging medical cases; and is effective in reducing or eliminating chronic pain and trauma-related symptoms presenting in the musculoskeletal system, making it useful for bodyworkers and other physical-care providers.
