Topic:
COVID-19 has had a profound impact on the work we do as therapists. In our efforts to help others, many of us have forgotten how to attend to our personal needs. Come to this training to understand the impact of compassion fatigue and learn creative ways to build stress resilience. You’ll walk away with a renewed sense of energy as you explore the power of setting boundaries with those who take advantage of our helping spirit, and you’ll practice simple mindful movements that improve posture, enhance quality breathing, and decrease pain. .

Topic:
Real people in real situations often do not fit neatly into categories; and if you work with people with multiple diagnoses then this course was designed with you in mind. Co-occurring disorders, trauma, personality complications, and multiple high-risk behaviors can derail and confuse traditional treatment protocols and systems to become ineffective. This class focuses on how to effectively apply the principles and processes of DBT to those with Borderline Personality Disorder, emotion dysregulation problems, substance use, self-harm and more.
