    Dreams Demystified: An online course on the clinical use of experiential dreamwork is presented by Dr. Leslie Ellis

    Short Summary:

    In this two-part online course, participants will learn the fundamentals of experiential dreamwork based on the most current research and neuroscience -- which make a compelling case for including dreamwork in your practice. Format includes succinct presentations and live dreamwork demo sessions and Q/A sessions. Topics include theories about why we dream, understanding the language of dreams as embodied metaphor, kinds of dreams and a simple road map to working effectively with any dream.

    Event Description:

    In your work as a therapist, do you sometimes feel stymied and wish for creative inspiration to deepen the therapy process and help clients move forward? Dreams are like a wise and trusted supervisor who reliably points toward what matters most to your clients. Most therapists say they don’t work with dreams because they lack training and know-how. This course, based on A Clinician’s Guide to Dream Therapy provides up-to-date theory and simple techniques to help you explore your client’s dream life with confidence. You will see for yourself how dreamwork accelerates and deepens the process of therapy, engaging your client more deeply and ultimately improving outcomes.

    Part One covers the fundamentals: current research that builds a strong case for working with dreams, what dream research tells is that makes the case for dreamwork even more compelling, some basic ideas about the possible reasons we dream, and how these relate to the process of psychotherapy. We will also cover how to introduce dreams in your practice, how to recall and record dreams, and will go through all of the most common experiential dreamwork practices in use by therapists today.

    Leslie’s online dream course is incredibly well put together – comprehensive, elegant and thought provoking. Personally I loved the overview it gave me. What was new for me was some of the dream/brain information. I was also introduced to some new approaches with which I was not familiar. It is great to be given new threads to pull in. I have felt very engaged with the material and have loved the way it has reanimated my dream work in my office.

    - Louise Mina, Clinical Psychologist, Cape Town, South Africa

    I loved the course! Leslie’s presentation was clear, superbly presented, and the format easy to navigate. Her manner & voice are easy to listen to and engage with. The course offers a reassuringly solid foundation and great practical information on working with dreams. Shaila Patel, RCC, Coquitlam, BC

    Event Title: Sex and Shame - ONLINE

    Event Subtitle: Helping Clients Create or Restore a Life-Affirming Sexuality

    Presented By: Sheila Rubin LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon PhD, SEP

    Short Summary:

    Sexuality is a vital, defining part of our identity. We are at our most vulnerable when we experience sexual feelings—therefore we're the most prone to feeling shame. In this workshop, we will offer tools you can use to help clients talk about, explore, and heal the sexual shame that can arise at any stage in the life cycle—and help them towards a life-affirming sexuality.

    Sexuality is a vital, defining part of our identity. We are at our most vulnerable when we experience sexual feelings—therefore we're the most prone to feeling shame. We are subject to sexual shaming from early childhood, when we are most vulnerable to moral judgments from family and society—and to boundary violations from family members and those older than us. Entering our teenage years, we long to be attractive to others and try desperately to "be cool" and fit in. As adults, we seek a partner and try to balance the constraints of monogamy with sexual adventure. In our mature years, our ability to function sexually diminishes and our faces and bodies are no longer as we remember them.

    In this workshop, we will offer tools you can use to help clients talk about, explore, and heal the sexual shame that can arise at any stage in the life cycle—and help them towards a life-affirming sexuality.

    There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

    Integrating working with the body, brain, and nervous system with traditional psychotherapy is now at the forefront of clinical advances for healing attachment wounds and early developmental deficits.

    This webinar will address -
    Using Touch Interventions To Renegotiate Early Relational Trauma: Creating A Safe Bridge For Body-Mind Integration

    Touch is at the foundation of our relational experience. Scientific evidence has shown that attuned, caring touch is critically important for normal brain development as well as for healthy emotional and cognitive maturation. Healing early trauma begins with offering the missing nonverbal somatic support, attunement, and safety—a secure bottom-up foundation based in trust and care from which a new top-down narrative can emerge.

    NeuroAffective Touch® is a professional somatic training that introduces psychotherapists, mental health practitioners, and body-centered therapists to the use of touch as a vital psychobiological bridge to body-mind integration. NATouch™ addresses attachment, emotional, and relational deficits that cannot be reached by verbal means alone.

    A Polyvagal-Informed Model

    NeuroAffective Touch® is a polyvagal-informed somatic approach that uses intentional mindful touch to bring the unconscious memories and experiences held in the body and viscera into conscious awareness. Working with the exteroceptive, proprioceptive, and interoceptive aspects of the nervous system, NATouch™ helps establish a new embodied foundation from which to rework trauma-based responses and rebuild self-awareness and identity.

    Touch and the New Diagnosis of Complex PTSD

    The World Health Organization (WHO) in its 2018 International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) recognized the diagnosis of Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). Consequently, training in how to work with developmental trauma and complex PTSD is more important than ever.

    By communicating directly with the body at the nonverbal level where we have all received our first imprints, NeuroAffective Touch® addresses the effects of family abuse and neglect that are at the root of C-PTSD and shape our behavior and sense of identity.

    Are you thinking about making a change in your practice?

    Be a pioneer! Experience how integrating mind and body with the therapeutic use of touch can transform your practice and your perspective as a clinician.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Transcend the reach of talk therapy in healing emotional and relational wounds
    • Understand the key touch skills necessary for working with attachment deficits
    • Learn how to access preverbal and nonverbal states
    • Move beyond the traditional psychodynamic understanding of identity as

    residing in the mind by working simultaneously bottom-up with the body and top-down with the mind

    • Teach clients practical self-care touch exercises to stabilize their nervous system

    Presenter Bio:

    Aline LaPierre, PsyD, MFT, SEP
    Dr. Aline LaPierre is the developer of NeuroAffective Touch® and director of The NeuroAffective Touch® Institute specializing in teaching the therapeutic use of touch and bodywork to professionals in the fields of psychotherapy, somatic psychotherapy, and bodywork. She is the co-author of Healing Developmental Trauma: How Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image, and the Capacity for Relationship now available in ten languages. Dr. LaPierre is a graduate of Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, and The New Center for Psychoanalysis in Los Angeles, and is trained in many bodywork modalities. She is past faculty in the Somatic Doctoral Program at Santa Barbara Graduate Institute (2000-2010), where she taught the use of touch at the doctoral level. She is the current Vice-President of the United States Association for Body Psychotherapy (USABP) and Deputy Editor of the International Body Psychotherapy Journal (IBPJ). She maintains a private practice in West Los Angeles.

    The Center for Mindful Body Awareness is offering a 6-day intensive Level 1 Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT) course.  MABT teaches therapists how to facilitate their clients’ ability to learn and develop interoceptive awareness (awareness of internal body sensations) and related skills for self-care and emotion regulation.  MABT is an evidenced-based approach that is particularly helpful for clients who are disconnected from their bodies due to stress, pain or chronic physical or mental health conditions. 

    This course is limited to 12 participants so that we can give a lot of instructional support throughout the week. Please click on these links to learn more about the Level 1 training, and registration information.

    NARM PRACTITIONER TRAINING – AUSTIN, TEXAS MODULE 1

    Wednesday, January 15 - Sunday, January 19, 2020

    Still Waters Retreat Center  – Austin, Texas

    The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM): A Practitioner Training for Healing Attachment, Relational & Developmental Trauma

    THE NARM™ Practitioner Trainingis an advanced clinical training for the treatment of complex trauma.  Enrollment is open to psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, and other mental health professionals who work with trauma.  Applications are approved on a case-by-case basis.

    NARM is a cutting-edge model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties.  This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model - as outlined in Dr. Laurence Heller’s book Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship - emerged out of earlier psychotherapeutic orientations including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Somatic Psychotherapy, as well as mindfulness-based approaches.  NARM bridges traditional psychotherapy (“top-down”) with somatic approaches (“bottom-up”) within a context of relational practice

    NARM is positioned to become an invaluable treatment option for C-PTSD (Complex PTSD), and a leader in the Trauma-Informed Care movement as we gain greater understanding of the long-term effects on the body and mind of adverse childhood experience (ACEs). 

    For more information visit: www.narmtraining.com

    NARM Practitioner Training Course Objectives:

         A comprehensive theory and skills for addressing the long-term effects of unresolved childhood trauma (ACEs).

         How to address the complex interplay between nervous system dysregulation and identity distortions.

         The clinical skills needed to work with attachment, relational and developmental trauma.

         Differentiating the skills necessary for addressing shock trauma versus complex trauma.

         Working with shame, guilt, low self-esteem, chronic self-judgment, self-hatred, and other psycho-biological symptoms.

         How to work moment-by-moment with early adaptive survival styles that, while once life-saving, distort clients’ current life experience.

         When to work ‘bottom-up’, when to work ‘top-down’, and how to work with both simultaneously to meet the special challenges of complex trauma.

         How to support clients with a mindful and progressive process of disidentification from identity distortions.

         A new, coherent theory for working with affect and emotions, which aims to support their psychobiological completion.

         A powerful relational model that strengthens clinical effectiveness by highlighting the interpersonal nature of the therapeutic process.

    Short Summary:

    This workshop provides mental health professionals with a clinical foundation for using trauma-sensitive yoga, integrated with polyvagal theory, to improve therapy outcomes for individuals with symptoms of psychological trauma, anxiety and depression. The training includes the in-depth study of polyvagal theory, the physiology of trauma, and trauma-sensitive yoga interventions, such as chair postures, breathing practices, yoga nidra, and meditation.

    Event Description:

    Title: Integrating Trauma-Informed Yoga with Polyvagal Theory: Embodied nervous system regulation for improving outcomes in therapy.

    This professional training offers participants a solid foundation for bringing two related, embodied approaches into individual and group therapy sessions: polyvagal theory and trauma-sensitive yoga. It is conducted in a retreat environment, offering participants the opportunity to cultivate relationships; rejuvenate their mind and body; and rest.

    The curriculum includes the in-depth study of polyvagal theory; the physiology of trauma; principles of nervous system-informed, trauma-sensitive yoga; and guidelines for choosing and teaching therapeutic yoga interventions which can be incorporated into any style of therapy. These include selected chair postures, breathing practices, yoga nidra, and meditation. The material will be taught through lecture, case discussions, experiential exercises, and scripted practicums. No prior yoga experience is required.

    The course meets from 7 to 8 a.m. and 9:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, with three additional, hour-long practicums. The rest of the afternoons and evenings are free, for the enjoyment of the on-site outdoor pool and jacuzzi, the nearby ocean beach, the many cultural and social events which Delray Beach offers, and eachother!

    You can expect to:

    Develop a basic fluency in the language and practice of polyvagal theory (a theory of how the autonomic nervous system functions).

    Understand the physiological basis of psychological trauma.

    Learn how, when, and to whom to incorporate nervous system-informed, trauma-sensitive yoga-based interventions into individual and group therapy sessions.

    Improve your ability to recognize and respond to your own patterns and nuances of autonomic state shifts, and to support more adaptive response patterns in your clients.

    $1200-$500 residential; $850 non-residential.

    Embodiment Teacher Certification Training

    (Exceptions may be made for long-time RP students and people who have taken previous RP certification trainings.) This training includes the main Realization Process practices for embodied nondual awakening, as well as specific embodiment and gentle movement practices for attuning to fundamental consciousness within one’s whole body. These practices cultivate internal unity, balance, fluidity, presence and subtle energy within the body.

    As the embodiment of fundamental consciousness, we become both empty and present at the same time.   We know ourselves as the integration of awareness, emotion and physical sensation.  We perceive, understand, touch, move, and express ourselves with the whole breadth of our being.

    Participants will learn how to recognize and help people resolve chronic imbalances and tensions in the body that limit embodiment and the realization of fundamental consciousness. The training is also an opportunity to deepen your own embodiment and realization of nondual, fundamental consciousness.

    Note: The Realization Process Embodiment Teacher Certification Training will not be offered again until Fall, 2021 online and Spring, 2023 in person.

    Format: two five-day modules.  The first module is taught by senior Realization Process teachers in your choice of three locations and the second module is taught by Judith Blackstone in Woodstock, New York.

    Part Two

    Arrangements for lodging, especially in Woodstock, should be made as soon as possible, as this is a popular tourist destination.  There are reasonably priced hotels and many airbnbs in the area.

    Registration for part one is a commitment to complete both parts of the training. 

    Certification:

    You will receive a certificate at the completion of the two five-day modules, authorizing you to use the Realization Process Embodiment practices professionally.

    Cost: $730 for each part ($530 if you are repeating the Realization Process Embodiment Teacher Training)

    Registration Process:

    To register, email your completed application to the teacher of your choice for part one of the training, Marcia and Christi, Jon or Roma. They will send you an invoice for your $400 deposit.  $200 will be applied toward each of the two parts of the training. Your deposit is refundable, minus a $50 cancellation fee, if you cancel up to two weeks before part one of the training.

    Note: The teacher certification trainings are for people who intend to teach the Realization Process or to integrate it into their current professional work. (Exceptions may be made for long-time RP students and people who have taken previous RP certification trainings.)  It is recommended that you experience the Realization Process practices, in a class or workshop, with Judith Blackstone or a certified Realization Process teacher, before registering for the training.
