The Resilience Mindset: The Neuroscience of Coping with Disappointment, Difficulty, even Disaster
Monday, June 22, 2020, 8:00 AM to Friday, June 26, 2020, 5:00 PM EDT
Category: CE Events: Adult Individuals

Dealing effectively with challenges and crises is the core of resilience and well-being. Helping clients develop flexible and adaptive strategies for coping with everyday disappointments, existential dread, and extraordinary disasters is the heart of the therapeutic process. Helping clients harness the brain’s processes of change, rewire coping strategies that are defensive, dysfunctional, and blocking of growth, and encode new more flexible patterns of response, is the focus of this workshop. Modern neuroscience is teaching us how to use the brain’s innate neuroplasticity to rewire coping behaviors, even when they are seemingly “stuck” and intractable. Clinicians will learn through didactics, experiential exercises, and group discussions, which tools and techniques of brain change best help clients reverse the impact of stress and trauma, come out of anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, guilt and shame, deepen the self-compassion and empathy that connect them to their inner resources, strengthen the resonant relationships that foster perseverance, and shift their perspectives through mindful awareness to discern options and make wise choices. Participants will learn to apply these tools and techniques, which underlie the therapeutic modalities they are already familiar with – Internal Family Systems, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, AEDP, DBT, EFT – to five intelligences - somatic, emotional, relational within ourselves, relational with others, reflective - and develop a healthy resilience mindset that supports well-being and flourishing. Clinicians will also learn to apply these tools to their own brain care as self-care to avoid compassion fatigue and burnout.
