What This Program Is About
"The Technology for your Psychology" Program
Tools and techniques are given to clinicians that can be used and recommend for their patients as part of a Comprehensive Lifestyle Medicine Approach. During a traumatic experience, the body goes through profound changes. Discussion on how to create a clear and understanding mind & body for ( the clinicians to engage their clients.) and enables the healthcare professional to have more success with their most challenging clients.
This program provides evidence-based and practical methods to improve emotional Intelligence & facilitate well-being and improve stress responses in the health professional's settings. There are many challenging situations in dealing with patients that confront the health care professional on a regular basis These techniques can reduce an emotional uproar and provide a "calm in the storm" presence.
This CE-CEU program provides tools (technology) for accessing and beginning to understand the internal landscape. The participants will learn methods to evaluate their own habitual responses, negative conditioning, and survival skills. They will be assisted in the self-study of beliefs, fears, reactions, and desires that are self-limiting and they will identify "masks" and recognize new ways to protect themselves and not only "survive" but "thrive" in the world.
Patients experience various levels of trauma which have many physical effects.
Dr. Bessel A Van der Kolk, a clinical psychiatrist and founder of the Trauma Center at Brookline MA. states "it's important to move beyond simply talking ... feeling that somebody understands your suffering is enormously comforting but it doesn't make your body know that you are safe. The real method is "resetting your physiology." MRI brain scan breakthroughs enable scientists to look at how the brain functions in real time, other than just taking a still photograph. Harvard research on Mindfulness Meditation shows that the medial prefrontal cortex shuts down during stress and lights up during meditation. Dr. Van der Kolk recommends yoga and breath work as a body-based therapy for releasing trauma.
The workshop includes in-depth training in mind-body techniques such as 3 Part Breath, Body Movements, Videos, Worksheets, and Discussion.
