Participants will explore the natural emotional and trauma responses of anxiety and depression. We'll look at the neuroscience behind anxiety as a warning sign, a symptom of what might be alerting a client to make needed changes in their life, especially in relation to "the happiness trap" by Russ Harris. We'll also explore how not responding to anxiety can lead to hopelessness and depression. We'll begin with emotional regulation and emotional sobriety moving towards specific curriculum that uses CBT, mindfulness, lifestyle examination, strengthening attachment/connection and building resources to support full integration into community.
- Participants will define both emotionally and through neuroscience, exactly what is anxiety and depression.
- Participants will learn basic skills in emotional regulation and developing skills for emotional sobriety.
- Participants will explore current curriculum that addresses both clinical therapy and self-help techniques in treating anxiety and depression.
Hope to see you there!
