Presented a 2-Day Workshop: Redeveloping Secure Autonomous Adult Attachment: A Clinical Model
This workshop presented a model of therapy and interventions for professionals in the Mental Health field to assist clients to recognize their unconscious models of relationships, to develop greater security through the therapeutic relationship and to risk new and healthy interactive patterns in present relationships. Attendees developed awareness of their own attachment style and its importance in their therapeutic work with clients.
Compassion Fatigue and Developing Resilience
On March 9, 2018, Durham/Kawartha OASW and Ontario Shores Social Work Council presented a half-day workshop. The presenter was Dylan Zambrano. The key objectives were to apply mindfulness and compassion practices to enhance resiliency, self-awareness, and emotional intelligence; detect empathy fatigue early by identifying warning signs, symptoms, and level of risk; and to understand the neuroscience of mindfulness and compassion and how they can improve well-being and reduce risk of burnout.
