The Ghost in You: Psychotherapy and the Art of Grieving

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma American Academy of Psychotherapists 64th Annual Institute & Conference Hyatt Regency Savannah, GA    The Ghost in You: Psychotherapy and the Art of Grieving “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.”—William Faulkner Loss is integral to the human experience. There is no attachment without the risk and eventuality of loss. The response to loss, however, determines our engagement in the present moment, as unfinished business can exist in a ghostly fashion. The ability (or inability) to navigate grief has a profound impact on the quality and duration of our relationships. Mourning can be a vehicle for, or an obstacle to, growth.  Over the course of these five days, we will take a deep dive into conscious and unconscious factors that influence how we, as therapists and individuals, metabolize grief. Particular attention will be paid to the potential for growth inherent in addressing what could, otherwise, be a scary topic. We invite you to explore the theme of ghosts and grief as they relate… State / Province: Georgia. Contact Phone Number: (518) 240-1178. Contact Email: AAP@caphill.com. Event Registration Link: .

Clinical Applications of Mindfulness and Compassion

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, & Trauma It’s now well known that mindfulness and compassion practices can enhance virtually any form of psychotherapy and have been proven effective in treating anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and other disorders. These practices also have an even greater potential—they can challenge our conventional view of ourselves and the world, waking us up from limiting beliefs about who we are and how we can find happiness. But mindfulness and compassion practices are not one-size-fits-all remedies. Researchers are now differentiating the effects of focused attention, open monitoring, loving-kindness, compassion, and equanimity techniques. To be safe and effective, practices need to be tailored to fit the needs of individual clients—and this workshop will show you how.

Attachment-Focused EMDR for Addiction: Healing Relational Trauma and Rewiring the Addicted Brain With EMDR-Based Treatment

Addictions While there are a number of programs targeted toward helping people overcome addiction, recovery often remains elusive or short-lived for all too many. Using EMDR-related techniques to help support motivation, increase affect regulation, and increase control over dysfunctional behaviors, we may be better able to break the addiction cycle, and support our clients in a life free of addictions. Attachment-focused EMDR extends the use and benefits of EMDR and bilateral stimulation for use with clients who have been typically less responsive to traditional EMDR protocols due to acute or chronic relational trauma and attachment deficits. Over two days, you will learn a holistic, integrative approach for treating addictions and dysfunctional behaviors that is brain-wise, resource-based, trauma-informed, and attachment-focused.
