Course Description & Objectives

Our bodies are not machines. There are real biological scientific reasons our clients can't struggle to utilize the skills and practices we teach them, especially in the time of COVID. This workshop provides space for helpers to shift their mindset around "problematic clients" and offers innovative, fun, modern approaches to such cognitive behavioral therapy interventions as challenging cognitive distortions, identifying triggers, setting boundaries, mindfulness & most significantly, action /treatment Plans. Structured as a teaching group, this workshop encourages interactive participant involvement for changing patterns and integrating new skills with our clients (and ourselves).


Course Objectives: 

  • Provide clear and helpful psychoeducation for trauma, chronic stress, and complex trauma related to the pandemic and how these impact bodies, minds, & spirits.
  • Collaborate with clients to identify negative coping strategies and self-sabotaging patterns better. 
  • Expand their definition of triggers to encompass all the Senses and let go of a strictly "narrative" approach to treatment.
  • Utilize Mindfulness and CBT for accessing their own intuition, thus, ensuring better adherence to treatment plans.
