Trauma in the Mind’s Eye: Mitigating & Eliminating Intrusive Thoughts, Flashbacks & Nightmares - Oct 13, 2017

Trauma in the Mind’s Eye: Mitigating & Eliminating Intrusive Thoughts, Flashbacks & Nightmares
Presented by: Natalie Zlodre, MSW, RSW
Date: Friday Oct 13th, 2017
Location: The Highland County Club, LONDON, ON

This workshop is designed for experienced front-line workers who provide short-term (non psychotherapy) counselling contact with vulnerable populations in community-based settings.

Traumatic experiences that are frozen, stuck and unprocessed have the potential to exacerbate and to generalize stress reactions.  We will learn what causes certain memories to become traumatic.  We will review the neurobiology of stress on memory systems and cognitive distortions that sear trauma responses in the nervous system.  Some memories are based on fear, helplessness and horror, and others memories are fortified by cognitive stuck points (guilt, shame, absorption of perpetrator messages, cultural/religious beliefs).

Natalie Zlodre M.S.W., R.S.W. was Head of the Trauma and Resiliency Centre and Associate Director of Training at the Hincks-Dellcrest Centre.  She is currently the Director of Community Resources and Initiatives, a trauma-informed consulting firm.  Her professional focus is in the areas of: acute trauma, developmental/complex trauma and the impact of trauma on professionals and on mental health services. Natalie provides clinical consultation and supervision to mental health professionals and organizations.  Her theoretical framework is trauma-informed and strength-based.

Natalie is an experienced training facilitator and has provided hundreds of presentations nationally and internationally.  She is known for her direct and lively style and her ability to translate complex theories about traumatic responses into relevant practices for post-traumatic growth in vulnerable populations.

To Err is Human: Therapists Mistakes and Therapeutic Opportunities - Nov 13, 2017

To Err is Human: Therapists Mistakes and Therapeutic Opportunities
Presented by: Dr. Janina Fisher
Date: Monday November 13th, 2017
Location: The Highland County Club, LONDON, ON

Like parenting, psychotherapy can be only “good enough.”  Therapeutic mistakes are inevitable, yet our work lives don’t allow us many opportunities to acknowledge and grow from them.  Our mistakes occur in the privacy of an office with no one there but the client with whom we could process them.   The thought of sharing them with colleagues often increases shame, not curiosity.   We may pause to critique ourselves but rarely have the chance to ask: How did that happen?

This workshop examines the underlying issues that most often contribute to therapist error and explores how what drives us to do this work can also lead to “mistakes of the heart.”   Whether the mistakes we make are more clinically mis-attuned, ethically incorrect, or the result of our own internal conflicts, there is much to learn both about our own vulnerability and what it can teach us about preventing future mistakes and repairing past errors.

Integrating psychodynamic and somatic conceptualizations of countertransference with an understanding of internal conflicts occurring simultaneously in client and therapist, this workshop will look at complex therapeutic relationships through a different lens.  Sometimes therapeutic mistakes end the treatment or cause havoc from which neither client nor therapist can recover fully.   Sometimes, though, our honesty and vulnerability can provide an opportunity for growth—for therapist, client, and their relationship.

Experience of Awe in Psychotherapy: Working with Spirituality in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy and Introduction to AEDP + Master Class

AEDP CASCADIA PRESENTS:

Experience of Awe in Psychotherapy: Working with Spirituality in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy,

and

Introduction to AEDP + Master Class

September 8 – 10, 2017 – 9:00am – 5:00pm

In this workshop, presenter Danny Yeung, MD, will demonstrate how, in AEDP, awe and spiritual experience can emerge as part of the healing process. Through lecture and video illustrations of clinical sessions, Dr. Yeung will provide a theoretical framework of AEDP and the essential skills required to accompany the client through the transformational process, where regulated by the emotional presence of a caring and empathic therapist, the patient emerges from the experience with a sense of relief, lightness and hope.

Particular attention will be paid to the Third and Fourth States of the model. The Third State, focusing on the experience of transformation includes the emotional pain of mourning-the-self, the emergence of healing affects, and a new understanding of Self and other.  State Four, Core State, is marked by emotional serenity, wisdom, the sense of things being ‘right’ and the truth sense. Enriched with mental clarity and coherence, experiencing core state provides the patient with the opportunity to create a new, adaptive and transcending autobiographical narrative.  Dr. Yeung will also be addressing the application AEDP to Asian cultures.
