Upcoming Seminars

Narrative Therapy

Are you interested in learning approaches to therapy that are grounded in social justice, appreciative of clients’ knowledge and abilities, and non-pathologizing? Narrative Therapy uses a fundamentally different framework for engaging with clients that assumes that problems are separate from people. It centers the client as the expert in their own life and looks at the skills, commitments, and values the client brings to the table as well as problematic discourses in our culture that give power to problems. Learn the core concepts of Narrative Therapy and come away with new skills you can put into practice immediately.

Motivational Interviewing: The Key to Positive Change and Authentic Relationships

Working with clients having difficulty with change? They may be disconnecting from you, experiencing some frustration in a therapeutic session, or just struggling to get over the hump of behavioral change. These actions and behaviors are incredibly normal! Motivational Interviewing focuses on having a collaborative conversation with clients to help uplift their valid ambivalence and moving in the direction of awareness and change. Come learn how to apply Motivational Interviewing techniques in an experiential, client/practitioner-focused, and relevant way!

Assessment and Treatment of OCD and Related Disorders

OCD can present as clearly as concerns with contamination and hand washing or as covert as what seems like generalized anxiety. This training will help you better assess the presenting features of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and other related disorders such as Health Anxiety, Social Anxiety, and specific phobias. This training will also discuss an introduction of the treatment methods for OCD and related disorders using Exposure and Response Prevention, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and the use of virtual reality.
