From the book by Hans Selye "The Stress of Life" to the eye-opening results of the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACEs) on childhood trauma and health, the case is clear for the negative emotional, physical, and social fallout of severe and protracted stress and trauma. But what about the flip side? Where are we as it relates to the science and practice of positive emotional states and experiences? What is known about the healing power of humor, faith, spirituality, love, and social connectedness?
This workshop provides the mirror-side view of the stress literature. From author Norman Cousins and his lifesaving discoveries in "Anatomy of an Illness: As Perceived by the Patient, " Bernie Siegel's caring therapeutic approach "Exceptional Cancer Patients", the inclusion of irreverence and humor in Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT) as a core strategy, to the exciting neuroanatomical changes seen with a mindfulness practice, you will learn about and experience how positive emotional states can rapidly alter both physiology and mood.
Control-mastery is a cognitive, psychodynamic, relational (CPR) theory of psychotherapy to help clients overcome barriers to their well-being. The theory is an empirically supported and effective approach for therapists. Learning control-mastery, helps you understand clients’ behavior and motivations, while also elegantly explaining common countertransference reactions. Although the theory does not provide specific techniques, it is the foundation of understanding a psychotherapeutic stance.
