These Practice-transforming Workshops from the Psychotherapy Networker Symposium

Addictive Behavior as the Problem with Janina Fisher, PhD
 

It’s no secret that many therapists consider the field of addictions treatment to be dangerous foreign territory with its own special language and methods. But increasingly, therapists and substance abuse professionals alike have begun to recognize the connection between addictive behavior and traumatic life experience. In this module, world-renowned trauma expert Janina will present an approach to addictive behavior that:

  • Focuses on the interactive relationship between the underlying trauma symptoms and the impulse to “use” to regulate unbearable feelings and sensations
  • Provides a meaning-making component that lessens shame and offers inspiration to live a “life beyond trauma”
  • Integrates Sensorimotor Psychotherapy techniques that teach clients how to regulate their nervous systems, decrease anxiety, tolerate sadness and loneliness, and ground themselves both physically and emotionally
  • Engages the client’s right brain through drawing, diagramming, movement and gesture, as well as utilizing traditional cognitive interventions

Mastering the Anxiety Game with Reid Wilson, PhD
 

When it comes to treating anxiety, there’s growing evidence that the quickest, most effective approach involves instructing them to ramp up their fears while telling themselves how much they welcome the experience. In this module, you’ll learn how to help clients shift their relationship with their fears and override the responses that perpetuate them. After this session you'll be able to:

  • Explain how to rapidly engage anxious clients in the therapeutic alliance and change their mindset toward their fears.
  • Identify why the first step to changing an overwhelming response to anxiety is accepting the perceived threat as something the client can approach and change.
  • Implement strategies to help clients transform their fear into a challenge to be met or a puzzle to be solved.

FREE Networker Magazine Article PDF Download: Six Master Therapists Recall Their Most Unforgettable Sessions
 
Many therapists speak of the privilege of witnessing another’s authenticity, beyond the cheery “I’m fine” presentations of self that human beings work so hard to maintain. In the process, clinicians get the chance to experience a particular depth of connection with clients that’s unlike any other. And when clients take a leap that propels them out of some longstanding, misery-making behavior, therapists feel their own hearts lift. Hear from leading experts Terry Real, Mary Jo Barrett, Courtney Armstrong, Ron Taffel, Margie Nichols and Hedy Schleifer as they answer the question, "What's your most memorable therapeutic moment?"
