Description

Are you looking for something to bring fun and energy to your sessions? Something more than “therapy as usual” that will have your clients eager to engage in the therapeutic process?

Tai Chi does much more than create a relaxed state of body and mind – a growing body of research supports that its combination of gentle and adaptable exercise, breath awareness, and focus offers a host of benefits for improved mental and physical health. Tai Chi can help reduce stress and anxiety, alleviate depression, curb our cravings, and alter our perception of pain. But you’re hesitant to jump in, concerned that incorporating Tai Chi into your clinical practice will be too time intensive, too complicated to learn, and too difficult to introduce to your clients.

Stop worrying and start moving! In this unique and experiential recording, you’ll quickly learn the basic skills of Tai Chi and discover how to incorporate it into your treatment plans for depression, anxiety, stress, addictive cravings, and chronic pain. And you won’t be spending your day in a chair! This recording will get you up and moving while you learn.

No previous knowledge or background in Tai Chi is required to take full advantage of this recording. You will receive detailed instruction on the practice of specific Tai Chi postures and movements, as well as strategies to introduce them to your clients so they can get started right away. Your instructor will connect the dots between the practices of Tai Chi, meditation, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and demonstrate the techniques most appropriate for the disorders you see in clients each day. Discover how you can use Tai Chi to add fun and energy to your sessions, engage your clients, and focus them on the path to healing and change.

Key benefits of watching:

  • Step-by-step instruction on the basic postures and movements of Tai Chi
  • 4 easy ways to use Tai Chi to relieve symptoms of depression.
  • Powerful techniques to anchor attention and reduce stress with meditative movement.
  • Effective methods to combine Tai Chi with CBT to disengage clients from the automatic thoughts and triggers that fuel their addictions.
  • Guided exercises that are adaptable for clients of all ages and stages of health.

Featuring demonstrations and guided experiential exercises, this seminar will have you feeling confident and prepared to bring Tai Chi into your clinical practice. Better still, you’ll be wholly engaged in what you learn during the recording and finish feeling more relaxed, more attentive, and more energetic!
