    Event Link: https://SOSWorkshops.ca/.

    Chronic shame is one of the most challenging experiences to resolving in many clients, and therapists often do not feel they have sufficient skills to effectively address it. This workshop will explore several functions of shame and how we defend ourselves against shame in maladaptive ways. A practical integration of cognitive, emotional, somatic, and relational interventions to resolve chronic shame will be discussed. We will also explore specific “antidotes” to shame, as well as ways to help clients (and therapists) develop resilience to shame reactions. Most importantly, we will examine how to be with shame -our own and our clients – with curiosity and compassion, finding ways to create a safe relational space in which to deeply attune with and help repair chronic shame.

    Early Bird rate: $89+hst (1/2 day event), group rates available
    A recording will be made available to registered participants until June 11th.

    Event Link: https://SOSWorkshops.ca/.

    Everyone experiences an inner critic, based on negative messages from authority figures and from ourselves in reaction to unrealistic expectations of perfection and emotions such as fear, shame, contempt, or envy. In this workshop we will explore an integrative approach to understanding and working with a wide range of inner criticism, punishment, and harshness in our clients, but also in ourselves as therapists. We will explore how these inner aspects develop, and understand their several functions of protection, avoidance, and attempts to gain or maintain validation and care from others. Participants will have an opportunity to explore their own inner critic with compassion as a step toward helping clients learn to deal with their own. Our ability to reflect on and shift our own tendencies toward self-criticism and perfectionism will support our capacity to work with these experiences in our clients.

    Early Bird rate: $89 + hst
    A recording of this event will be available to registered participants until June 11th

    The Centre for Posttraumatic Stress & Anxiety Treatment is pleased to announce a four-day intensive online training workshop in Prolonged Exposure (PE) Therapy for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.

    PE is a manualized cognitive-behavioural treatment for PTSD with an extensive base of empirical support. Numerous controlled studies have shown that PE significantly reduces the symptoms of PTSD in a wide range of trauma survivors. PE is strongly recommended by every major U.S. and international clinical practice guideline for the treatment of PTSD.

    Topics covered:
    • Assessment, diagnosis and psychopathology of PTSD;
    • Empirically-supported psychotherapeutic treatments for chronic PTSD and their comparative efficacy;
    • Emotional Processing Theory and its relation to PE;
    • Implementation of the components of PE, including psychoeducation, breathing retraining, in vivo exposure to trauma reminders, imaginal exposure to trauma memories, and processing of exposures;
    • Identification and management of obstacles to effective emotional processing, including avoidance, over-engagement, and under-engagement;

    Video vignettes will illustrate the various components of PE, and participants will have an opportunity to practice selected interventions in pairs during break-out sessions.

    Intended audience:
    Licensed mental health professionals or those working under the supervision of a licensed mental health professional. Previous training and experience with cognitive-behavioural therapy is advised.

    Registration: https://www.cpsat.ca/workshops/pe-for-ptsd-may-2021

    Sleep problems are reaching an epidemic level in our society, especially with the current pandemic stresses. Hypnosis is often recommended and can be effective for sleep problems, but most published scripts are targeted towards simple insomnia – difficulty falling asleep in the absence of significant sleep or co-morbid mental health challenges. Most of our clients are much more complex.

    Embedding Sleep is a 7 week, online course that offers an introduction to sleep disorders (both primary and secondary to other mental health challenges) as well as practical, psychoeducational, and hypnotic strategies to treat sleep problems.

    The Embedding Sleep program is an approved CPA Provider (2021) and is authorized to offer 20 CEC credits for members of the Canadian Psychological Association.

    The course starts on May 19th and finishes on June 30th. Course materials include pre-recorded and live online sessions. The live sessions are offered weekly on Wednesdays at 5:30 Mountain time.

    Cost: $397 CAD + appropriate taxes. There is a 10% early bird registration discount if you register before May 1, 2021. Registration closes May 15, 2021.
