When overwhelming anxiety or loss leaves your clients feeling stressed, or worse—traumatized—there’s a way not only to help them bounce back, but bounce forward. Recent discoveries in neuroscience have given us specific tools to facilitate posttraumatic growth, allowing clients to engage with virtually any challenge as an opportunity. In the process, clients can change old coping patterns, shift perspectives, and discover new possibilities. In this experiential workshop, you’ll discover how to:
- Use body-based tools of breath, touch, movement, and visualization to restore equilibrium in the nervous system
- Help clients manage disruptive emotions and cultivate positive ones to shift brain functioning from states of contraction to openness and learning
- Adapt mindfulness practices to help clients identify dysfunctional coping patterns and uncover new, healthier behaviors
- Use brain-based techniques to transform mistakes and losses into opportunities for learning and empowerment
