April 21-22, 2018
Integrating Mind-Body Practices into Your Life and Your Therapy Practice
Starbright Training Institute, Fairfax, VA

The purpose of the experiential workshop is twofold: 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.

You Will Learn:

By the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • How the Autonomic Nervous System is affected by stress and trauma
  • How specific mind-body techniques can mitigate the effects of stress and trauma.
  • How to practice several simple, evidence-based breathing and guided meditation exercises to enable people to down-regulate their own nervous systems, and thereby enhance sleep, improve mood, increase a sense of control, and improve concentration
  • How to effectively introduce breathing and meditation techniques in the therapy office setting
  • Key factors in ensuring mind-body practices are trauma-sensitive
  • Methods to enhance your own and your clients’ self-observation skills
  • Mind-body tools to support self-compassion
  • Mind-body exercises that people can weave into their busy lives to bring more present-moment awareness and ease.

Participants Will Receive:

  • Scripts for guiding trauma-sensitive breath and meditation exercises
  • Recorded trauma-sensitive breath and guided meditation exercises
  • Written instructions for doing and teaching trauma-sensitive breath and meditation exercises

The training earns you 12 CEUS .The CEUs are included in the workshop fee.

Appropriate for therapists and health professionals of all backgrounds, wishing to integrate more mind-body skills into their practice. No yoga or meditation experience is necessary. No prerequisites.

Tuition: $300
