    “The Phoenix is rising, so harness your capacity to turn towards challenge to emerge stronger, smarter and more resilient.” ~ Sushama Kirtikar

    In this workshop, Mental Health Clinicians will acquire practical tools to help themselves and their clients rise to meet the current pandemic period. The tools taught in this presentation are based on Positive Psychology applications, empirical evidence and neuroscience. Positive Psychology is uplifting, elevating, hope giving and energizing. At the same time, it is rooted in concrete, scientific research, making it valid and reliable. Juxtaposed to its lightness is its solidity. Its applications are easy, workable and achievable.  

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understand the Science of Resilience with studies on emotional health, heart health and brain health (Barbara Fredrickson)
    2. Learn 4 ways to meet well-being needs & build resilience (Rick Hanson)
    3. Identify 3 Explanatory Styles of Perspective (Martin Seligman)
    4. Discover the 5 Thinking Traps & 3 Strategies to overcome them (Karen Reivich, Director of Resilience and Positive Psychology Training @ UPenn)
    5. Know APA's guidelines for cultivating resilience
    6. Recognize what resilient employees do differently, more effectively and with more efficiency

        OUR SHADOW AS OUR ALLY: Bringing Conscious Clarity


        Presented by Julie Wells, LCSW, CP, TEP

        http://www.journeyintowellnesscounseling.com/

        Journey into Wellness Counseling, 2641 Harbor Circle, Clearwater, FL

        (727) 688-5800

        3.0 GENERAL CEUS | Friday, April 16, 2021 from 1:30 - 4:30 PM

        Carl Jung brought us the concept of the shadow. When we help our clients work with the shadow in therapy, we confront aspects of them that are hidden from their awareness. These disowned parts or qualities cause them shame and guilt, and bring up trauma responses, distorted expression, and unhealthy coping strategies. During these difficult times, the shadow offers us a view into what is going on underneath.

        Equally as challenging is the concept of the Golden Shadow.  The Golden Shadow holds all the brilliance, potent possibilities, and positive aspects that our clients deny and push aside in their search for acceptance, modesty, and self-preservation. These are the same qualities that will help them persevere in the uncertainty of this pandemic. 

        Join us and take this opportunity to have personal growth while exploring ways to help your clients work with both sides of the shadow and turn their shadow into an ally. Learn action-oriented interventions and theories that are trauma-informed and adaptable to any population. The process of learning psychodrama requires us to take the role of the client to experience and explore these exercises for ourselves.  This workshop is a live, interactive Zoom workshop that will enhance your understanding of Jung’s insightful dynamic, the SHADOW, and practice ways to move clients toward self-acceptance and integration of their full self with more conscious clarity. 

        Learning objectives:

        ·         Define and gain a fundamental understanding of Jung’s Shadow and Golden Shadow

        ·         Practice shadow exercises and apply them for use in your practice

        ·         Identify parts of a psychodrama including but not limited to: warm up, action, sharing

        ·         Participate in psychodramatic interventions to gain awareness and insight about your personal shadow work to decrease countertransference

          Re-storying Lost Identities in Families with Sexual, Affectional, Intersex, and Gender Expansive Identities Although family members vary in their degree and pace of acceptance of a family member that differs in their sexual, affectional, intersex, and/or gender expansive identity, most struggle adjusting to the change in their identity as a family. When an individual comes out, family members may be affected regardless of their own gender identity or sexual orientation. Reactions may include grief, shame, anger and worries about their family. Counselors can help family members identify and process feelings around ambiguous loss through the use of The Relationship Tree and guide families into reauthoring their family’s transition story. 

          Training Objectives: 

          1. Participants will be able to analyze their own values, beliefs, and behaviors associated with working with LGBTQI+ clients through the use of a self-assessment tool.

          2. Participants will be able to apply an ethical decision-making process for working with LGBTQI+ clients.

          3. Participants will be able to identify and educate families on ambivalent guilt reactions and ambiguous loss as it relates to their Sexual, Affectional, Intersex, and Gender Expansive expansive loved-one.

          4. Participants will be able to demonstrate the use of The Relationship Tree as an experiential approach to processing grief as it relates to ambivalent feelings and ambiguous loss.

          5. Participants will be able to facilitate the process of identifying perceived losses related to the family member and guide clients to reauthor their family story
