Integrating Mind-Body Skills into Your Life and Your Therapy Practice: A Skills-Based Training for Mental Health Professionals

Workshop Description

The purpose of the experiential workshop is two fold: 1) to offer therapists a variety of easy to adopt, evidence-based, mind-body skills for their own self-care routine; and 2) to assist therapists in skillfully integrating simple, evidence-based mind-body skills into their work with clients. Research shows that daily practice in nervous system down-regulation mitigates the impact of trauma, reduces compassion fatigue and secondary trauma and improves personal resilience. To this end, we will focus on practical, easy-to-learn skills therapists themselves and use to support their own health, as well as use in treating clients who present with trauma-related symptoms. The presenter will offer a scientific framework for these practices, ample experiential practices, and opportunities to practice leading the exercises with other participants.
