Description:  Many of the challenges that we experience are based on irrational and unhelpful thought patterns that impact both our feelings and our behaviour. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a time-sensitive, structured, and present-oriented form of counselling that focuses on problem solving and teaching individuals how to modify these distorted patterns of thinking. CBT is also one of the most well-known, researched, and practiced forms of therapy available to us. This workshop provides a strong foundational knowledge of the principles and strategies involved in using CBT. Participants will gain an understanding of which populations tend to benefit the most from CBT, and will be equipped with many strategies and tools that can be practically applied in their work.

Hakomi is a mindfulness-based, body-centred form of self-study. It is an approach that is used by psychotherapists and bodyworkers, teachers, social workers, and other supporting professionals. It’s a relatively fast and effective method which helps to gently reveal and transform underlying beliefs and habitual patterns that organize how someone experiences life.

Hakomi is a distinctive approach to body-inclusive psychotherapy developed in the USA by therapist and author Ron Kurtz, who began this work in the 1970s.  Hakomi is for people who want to become more conscious and internally spacious, less reactive, more emotionally well, and have healthier relationships.

Hakomi Experiential Psychotherapy is a mindfulness-based approach to self-understanding. Much more than a method or set of techniques, Hakomi is a way of looking at the world that is compassionate, mindful, curious, non-invasive, humorous and respectful.

The word “Hakomi” is borrowed from the Hopi tribe, a sovereign nation living in southwestern USA. “Hakomi” means “where do I stand among the many realms?”

Mission Empowerment!
Working with Survivors of Complex & Developmental Trauma: Effective Strategies for Front-Line Workers

 May 4 & 5, 2020
Time: 9:00 PM - 4:00 PM (Daily)
Location: Quality Inn & Conference Centre Festival (formerly "The Festival Inn"), 1144 Ontario Street, Stratford, ON
Instructor: Natalie Zlodre, MSW, RSW

escription: Anxious and disorganized early attachment patterns intertwined with early childhood trauma (emotional deprivation, physical /sexual abuse) and the strain of adversity or ongoing victimization may lead some clients to experience chronic and complex intrapsychic and interpersonal reactions. For some individuals, their adult lives are filled with a pool of unmet needs, a legacy of interpersonal turmoil, a range of disruptive trauma reactions and a deficit of skill, motivation and support to move beyond their past. These individuals may become chronically depressed, have addictions and are vulnerable to ongoing victimization. They may also be more likely to become “stuck” in counselling and to be prone to therapeutic impasses.

In this workshop, a conceptual framework for understanding and guiding your work with complex individuals will be discussed. You will learn how to assess and respond ethically and appropriately to clients with complex trauma, given the parameters of your workplace.
