An Integrated Approach to Mind-Body Principles and Techniques to Improve Your Clinical Work
This four-week training opportunity is designed for students, beginning practitioners, and those new to direct clinical practice. The course will introduce an integrative model of treatment focusing on relational psychotherapy, neuroscience, and mind-body work. A didactic and experiential format will be employed. Through the use of readings, discussion of clinical cases, and in-vivo demonstrations, we will:
1. Identify the structure and goals of treatment;
2. Describe central concepts in attachment theory, object relations theory, and self-psychology that can be employed to inform mind-body approaches and strengthen the therapeutic relationship;
3. Teach mind-body techniques to deepen the therapeutic process, focusing on the scientific bases and current empirical research for these practices;
4. Practice the acquired skills in the training session and learn to apply them using an integrated model
5. Learn to co-create a healing narrative using hypnotic inductions and bi-hemispheric communication;
6. Discuss central concepts in affective and social neuroscience that promote positive outcomes in treatment, such as empathic attunement, limbic resonance and revision, engaged equanimity, and neural integration; and
7. Review the ethical considerations and issues of competency when using mind-body techniques
This workshop will begin on Tuesday, July 19th, 2016 and run for 4 consecutive Tuesdays through August 9th, 2016 from 7:15 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The facilitators will be Dr. Stephen Stein and Dr. Victoria Sylos-Labini. The workshop will be held at 3000 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Suite 327. This training will be free of charge and open to any interested participants with the limit of 8 participants.
