    • How incorporating music in your clinical sessions can deepen the therapeutic relationship and open up new clinical insights

    NO COST TRAINING FOR MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

    Avoid the 5 Most Common Mistakes Therapists Make that Keep Children and Teens Stuck in Anxiety

    To register visit: https://korulearninginstitute.ck.page/
    As counsellors, we are often inundated with so much information about anxiety that it’s hard to know what approach is best. The most popular strategies are not necessarily the most effective and can actually stall our clients’ progress or even worsen their anxiety.

    Graduate training did not teach mental health professionals the specific tools they need to help children and teens with anxiety. And most CE trainings teach more theory and less practical tools, are boring, are plain ineffective, and do not promote skill development.

    It’s time to take control of your professional development and become a highly effective therapist when working with children and teens struggling with anxiety.

    That’s exactly why we want to offer this free workshop exclusively for mental health practitioners to learn the common mistakes to avoid and how to start making immediate, meaningful progress instead.

Participants in this workshop will receive specific instruction in the manualized therapy. CBCT for PTSD is time-limited (fifteen 75-minute sessions) and problem-focused, and has the simultaneous goals of improving individual PTSD and enhancing intimate relationship functioning. Case examples and role-plays allow participants to have hands-on experience with the interventions. Clinical considerations in the application of this therapy to different types of couples and specific issues that might arise in the delivery of the therapy (e.g., intimate aggression, substance abuse) are discussed.

    The CSCH-OD Fundamentals of Clinical Hypnosis Workshop provides clinical training in both the theory and application of hypnosis in the clinical practice of medicine and psychotherapy for those who have never practiced hypnosis. Based on evidence-based best practices, the workshop uses a combined format of lecture, demonstration and supervision to develop clinical hypnosis skills. Participants will be taught how to present hypnosis to a patient, how to do a number of different hypnotic inductions, and how to apply these in their practices. Participants will practice in small group sessions with individualized supervision, leading to the development of selected skills.

    This will be a highly interactive two days, with a minimum of 25% of workshop time spent in question and answer discussions, learning from case vignettes, video and live demonstrations and practice of induction techniques.

    Please note: there is a pre-workshop reading and a follow-up assignment for this workshop. Participants write a one-page summary of the use of hypnosis in their own practice and then submits it to a “mentor”. The mentor then provides constructive feedback and suggestions for improvement. Participants are invited to participate in a 90-minute post-workshop conference in 1-2 months following the workshop.

    Student applicants must provide supporting documentation. Please review eligibility requirements prior to registering.

    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.

    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

    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
