    Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MiCBT) addresses a broad range of psychological disorders and general stress conditions. MiCBT uses a novel and effective therapeutic system based on exposure and desensitization to the “interoception” that maintains unhelpful thought processes. The 4 stages of MiCBT provide a clear structure for both therapists and clients to support progressive implementation of mindfulness skills in challenging situations in daily life.

    The North American Chapter of the MiCBT Institute is offering two exciting clinical training opportunities for Psychologists and other mental health professionals

Treating Chronically Traumatized Children: The Sleeping Dogs Method
Special PTSD Edition with Bonus Material
Presented by Arianne Struik
Live Stream Option (see Envision website for details)

    • Location: Vancouver, BC

 

    • Website:

https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/treating-chronically-traumatized-children-the-sleeping-dogs-method-tickets-64753434265

The treatment of severely traumatized children and adolescents usually focuses on helping the child and the family to process their traumatic experiences with EMDR therapy. But in some cases children cannot or do not want to participate in EMDR therapy. These children may for example refuse to talk about their traumatic memories, they may dissociate, or may say they have forgotten about it. Cases such as these get stuck and often the trauma doesn’t get processed. We let ‘sleeping dogs lie’, with devastating consequences for future development. But how to help these children?

This workshop would benefit all mental health clinicians
