Learning Objectives

MORNING SESSIONS

Self-Compassion for Clients: Transcending Trauma with IFS to reconnect to our Self

dr-frank-g-anderson-live-workshopsLed by Frank G. Anderson, M.D.

Working with clients who suffer from complex PTSD can often feel like being on a roller coaster. The extreme reactions, multiple comorbidities, difficulty with boundary issues and volatility in relationships make these clients challenging even for the most skilled therapists. Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy has a unique way of addressing and overcoming the complexities of relational trauma. It deals with the cognitive by addressing and unloading distorted thoughts and beliefs, it incorporates the body as it supports the movement and discharge of physical sensations, and it facilitates the release of painful feelings (such as unworthiness, loneliness, and unlovability) by healing the wounds that parts of us carry.

This course includes case examples, personal experiences, and clinical exercises to enhance your learning as well.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify various types of trauma and compare IFS with traditional phase-oriented treatment.
  2. Demonstrate how to integrate IFS with other treatment models and address protective parts to unlock access to wounds.
  3. Differentiate between empathy and compassion in relation to Self-energy within the IFS framework.
  4. Learn strategies to gain permission from protective parts to access hidden vulnerabilities.
  5. Analyze common adaptations of relational trauma, such as neglect, vulnerability, shame, and substance use.
  6. Evaluate the range of traumatic wounds and various healing forms associated with complex PTSD and dissociation.
  7. Evaluate neuroscience knowledge related to the IFS model and review the neurobiology of PTSD and dissociation.
  8. Investigate how neuroscience can inform therapeutic decisions for extreme symptoms and how IFS addresses attachment trauma.
  9. Review common roadblocks to healing and discuss ways to successfully overcome them to help clients release pain.

 

AFTERNOON SESSIONS

Self-Compassion for Therapists: Caring for others without losing yourself

dr-kristin-neff-self-compassion-co-creator-author-associate-preofessor-live-ce-trainingLed by Kristin Neff, Ph.D.

Self-compassion involves treating ourselves kindly, like we would a close friend we cared about. Rather than continually judging and evaluating ourselves, self-compassion involves generating kindness toward ourselves as imperfect humans, and learning to be present with the inevitable struggles of life with greater ease. This workshop will present theory and research on the crucial role that self-compassion plays for therapists to reduce burnout. A variety of practices will be taught that can help individuals maintain balance in difficult situations with clients. We will also reconnect with our core values as professional caregivers.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the components and main benefits of self-compassion
  2. Distinguish between empathy fatigue and compassion fatigue
  3. Identity the link between self-compassion, stress, and burnout
  4. Apply self-compassion in professional caregiving contexts
