General Description:
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a skills-based, psychoeducational model designed to help clients learn and practice basic tools for managing compulsive, addictive, and self-harming behaviors; intrusive thoughts; intense or overwhelming feelings; chronic feelings of emptiness; ongoing relationship crises; and other painful experiences. Rooted in principles of mindfulness practice, existential philosophy, developmental psychology, and cognitive/behavioral therapy, DBT skills training is particularly helpful to clients in the early stages of any kind of recovery process or those who find themselves stuck in destructive patterns that are hard to break.

Body/Movement Observation and Analysis: Foundations of Movement Patterning and Body Organization

Registration: Please visit the website for the United States Association for Body Psychotherapy

General Description:

As Body Psychotherapists it is important to learn and understand movement patterning and body organization from a theoreti- cal perspective, from an observational perspective, and from an embodied, personal perspective. Each of these perspectives works in tandem with the others to bring deeper meaning and clarity to the unique and diverse movement repertoires that therapists will encounter in the clinical environment. The focus of this workshop is on learning the experiential and kinesthetic aspects of developmental movement and somatic patterning drawing from the Kestenberg Movement Profile (KMP) and Laban Movement Analysis (LMA).

General Description:
Having basic counseling skills and an intention to be of service provide an excellent foundation for beginning therapists, however, being a well-meaning therapist is usually not enough when working with clients who present with a complex array of psychosocial challenges. The skill set that is required in these situations requires an understanding of the self of the therapist, the developmental processes that shape the client's sense of identity, and the intersubjective field that exists between the therapist and the client. Comprehending and cultivating these abilities demands an advanced level of clinical training that is rooted in a deep therapeutic presence, keen theoretical understanding human development, and nuanced application of skills in creative and spontaneous ways that are adapted to the uniqueness of each individual.
 
Day One: The Inner Journey (Saturday, June 5 from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm; 7.5 Contact Hours)
Research suggests that therapeutic presence and the ability of the therapist to create a secure relationship with the client are the crucial factors that affect the healing process. The focus of the first day therefore focuses on experiential activities that cultivate the primary ingredients of the therapeutic relationship: presence, resonance, attunement, trust, and the capacity for repair. Essential material based in contemplative practice will be shared in an embodied and engaged way that is substantiated by contemporary psychological theory and neuroscientific research.
 
Day Two: The Outer Journey (Sunday, June 6 from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm; 7.5 Contact Hours)
Having sound techniques for bridging personal knowledge and theoretical understanding into sound clinical practice is an important part of therapeutic training. The focus of the second day is on developing the self-awareness skills and theoretical constructs explored during the first day into a coherent model of clinical decision-making that supports the client and the therapeutic relationship at eachstage of development. Essential material in attachment theory, mindfulness, somatic patterning, dialectics, object relations, and self-psychology will be integrated.
 
NOTE: This workshop is designed for advanced practitioners or those who have had some prior supervised counseling experience, thus it is not appropriate for individuals with no clinical training.
