Fall Workshops

I am pleased to announce the Fall 2020 Continuing Educational Workshops.  These classes will occur monthly from September 2020 -December2020.  The classes will be held  on the Zoom platform, which adds to the convenience of learning.    In addition, each class will be two hours long, allowing for smaller blocks of learning.  This will aid in retention and usability of the information.

1)Our series “kicks off” with a 2- part class on addiction.  As a therapist working in the  addiction field for most of my 35 years,  “ Hard to Handle”,  is an accurate description of dealing with addicted clients and their families.  This presentation will be broken up into two parts.  Part I, Assessment, will be held on September 16th from 9AM to 11AM.   Part II, Treatment, will be  held on September 23rd from 9AM-11AM.  Both parts will give participants many useful components in order to learn how to assess and treat addictive disorders.  The presentations will also include many case examples that illustrate these concepts.

2)In the month of October,  “Making change:  Using Milton Erickson’s Hypnosis Principles Without Using Hypnosis” will be our topic. This workshop will occur on Wednesday October 14th from 9AM-11AM.   Erickson was a master therapist who worked uniquely with every client.  There was no “cookie cutter” or “one size fits all” approach. The best part of this class is that you can use hypnosis thinking and interventions without knowing how to do hypnosis! If you are interested in learning different therapeutic approaches using a hypnosis lens, please register for this class.

3)Wednesday November 4th from 9AM-11AM is the date for our next workshop.  Astute readers will note that this is the morning after Election Day and our workshop is aptly titled, “Winners or Losers: Use of Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Stress Reduction”.    Regardless of the outcome of the election, can you think of a better time to learn how to use hypnosis in order to reduce stress and anxiety?  This class will have both didactic and experiential components to it.

4)Our last class of the Fall 2020 workshop series may be the most important.  It involves ourselves.

  • How many times have we felt frustrated or angry when dealing with a client?
  • How many times have we hoped that this client would not attend the session?
  • How many times have we anticipated that the client would make a meaningful change after a particularly useful session, only to find out that the client has not progressed at all?

If you’ve answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, please register for “Therapist Self -Care: Work Smarter Not Harder;  How to use different models to produce change”

This class will be  held on Wednesday December 2nd from 9AM-11AM.
