Clients ask us implicitly and explicitly about boundaries everyday. Does your training include detailed ways to think about boundaries, how the brain is processing different kinds of boundaries, and interventions that are geared to shift problematic boundaries? I have created this training to answer those questions and fill in gaps that I saw in my training around working with clients with boundaries. This course is a synthesis of information about the brain, ideas about boundaries from a variety of thinkers and clinical practice. I have split boundary work into four categories and will explore the neural networks and brain states involved in each category. Then we'll move from theory to practical application and see boundary work in action with clinical demos. Plan to leave with a categorization for different types of boundary work, thoughts about how to support healthy executed boundaries and specific practices to do with clients that you can take into your office now. - Austin IN Connection
In this online, self paced course full of both didactic and experiential content, we will explore Interpersonal Neurobiology. Applying the research that is opening the door to a deeper understanding of how our brains, minds, and relationships function can create more intentional, efficient and deep work with our clients.
Interpersonal Neurobiology is not a therapy, it is a theory of mind and theory of change that can help you discover how to organize you tool box to work with the natural energy and information flow patterns of the brain.
We want to be efficient in our work, influenced by recent research in neuroscience and trauma, and stay client centered. Tracking the neural network is a way to do deep work quickly, while being open and co-creating change that is lead by the client.
The full experience of any event is held in a neural network and many of us were never taught to track one for ourselves, much less help a client to do so. This type of differentiation and linkage leads to deeper brain integration and therefore greater mental wellbeing. We can use this skill in trauma recovery, grief, couples counseling, family counseling, dilemma of change work and more.This will be an experiential and didactic training, so come expecting lots of opportunity to practice this technique.
You will learn:
a skill that is the base of every effective trauma treatment
how helping a client to track their own network is a client centered way to invite change
to help clients bring compassion towards even difficult neural networks
through demo's of this type of tracking
through experiential practice how to use this tool with clients
