Confabulation and Delusions: Similarities, Differences, and Clinical/Forensic Implications – Webinar

August 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Webinar

Embodied Attachment Introduction: Transform Stuck Patterns into Life Affirming Connections

September 28 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
London

If I’m wired to connect how come I still feel empty and alone? One of the main reasons post-traumatic stress disorder doesn’t resolve is due to the underlying, unresolved attachment issues. Our bodies, minds, and hearts are wired to connect. When connection(s) are broken, or betrayed, especially while growing up the internal patterns become disorganized, remaining that way despite how one appears externally. Research indicates that one in four people has a secure attachment style (Brown, Elliott, et al, 2016)-…

Boost Mindfulness to Promote Co-Regulation

October 15 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
Sudbury

Co-regulation is a key component in many evidence-based approaches such as Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS), Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI), and relationship- and attachment-based models. Essentially, co-regulation is a process of regulating another person’s emotional state and de-escalating a crisis. By mirroring, role-modelling, and maintaining a calm and collected state of being, it becomes possible to hold space for others in a way that supports their emotional regulation. Increasingly, research has shown that a critical quality of the caregiver or helping…
