The 9th Western Conference: Behavioral Health and Addictive Disorders provides a forum for exploring the complex issues within the physical, emotional, social and spiritual dimensions of mental illness and addictive disorders.
A premier training event, specializing in mental health and the addictions field. US Journal Training, Inc. and The Institute for Integral Development present a combination of nationally recognized faculty who can address a wide variety of today’s most relevant topics.
The result is a highly acclaimed national training event featuring customized training opportunities for developing new treatment strategies and the sharing of research advances for clinicians and counselors.
I will present a workshop on Thursday afternoon:
Buddhist Psychology and Trauma-Focused Care:
2600 years ago the historical Buddha proposed and transmitted a complete psychology over his 45 years of teaching. The MET(T)A Protocol (Mindfulness and EMDR Treatment for Trauma and Adverse Life Events) is described, usable tools are taught and experienced, expanding in particular on the Buddhist concepts found in Dr. Dansiger’s new book (with Jamie Marich) EMDR Therapy and Mindfulness for Trauma Focused Care.
