Description

  • Integrate the latest on neuroscience into your practice
  • Hardwire recovery from anxiety and depression
  • Promote emotional regulation
  • Address anxiety and insomnia with relaxation

Advances in mindfulness and neuroscience have led to revolutionary breakthroughs in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and age related functional declines. Explore these cutting edge discoveries and corresponding mindfulness strategies designed to build depression and anxiety recovery skills in your clients. You will learn how to individualize these strategies, applying them to the treatment of various clinical diagnoses and to diverse populations. Learn why these approaches reduce relapse probability and how to teach relapse prevention skills. Take home specific interventions to promote and sustain client recovery from anxiety, depression, and limiting lifestyle habits.

A portion of the seminar will focus on mindfulness approaches for anger management, forgiveness, gratitude, and effective decision making. Difficulties in these four areas are among the strongest predictors for anxiety and depression and increase the likelihood of relapse. You will learn innovative skills to help your clients manage anger, forgive appropriately, build gratitude and make wise choices.

This recording consists of highly engaging, experiential learning and gives you the tools to immediately incorporate these new interventions into your daily work. With emphasis on clinician self-care, you will end the recording feeling renewed, energized and inspired.
