Immediate Help for Clients Using CBT with Self-Inquiry
Tuesday February 12, 2019
1:00pm - 4:15pm
3 contact hours total:
- 3 NBCC credit hours
- NCSAPPB approved substance use specific (SS) and evidence based treatment (EBT)
This is the second half of the day. The first half is Working With Veterans. Sign up for just one workshop, or both.
This training will focus on immediate help in assisting the client with skills to narrow down or clarify problem(s) that they are facing. The form of self-inquiry will utilize the pretzel posture to calm the emotional brain, allow for the thinking part of the brain to identify and contemplate the most immediate problem(s), allow for natural insight to develop, and then identify an action plan for making changes in their life. During the process, there are short periods of writing down the insights as they arise to assist with insight development.
This form of CBT will allow and support the removal of blockages to behavior change and a clear path to a plan of action. Bilateral tapping may also assist with emotional regulation and an emphasis in supporting the thinking frontal lobes of the brain. We’ll utilize this technique focusing on both substance abuse and mental health recovery.
- Understand the 3 part brain and how trauma and emotional blockages often sabotage the changes a recovering person will attempt to make in their life.
- Practice and develop the skills of self-inquiry with CBT seeing how it can benefit both counselor and client.
Snacks, coffee, tea, and water served!
We look forward to seeing you there!
