DESCRIPTION: 

It’s becoming increasingly clear that the range of issues men bring into our offices—such as shame, rage, passive dependency, control and communication issues, narcissism, and the inability to be intimate—often stem from trauma. Thus, it’s often hard for men to change when therapy only focuses on the presenting problem. This workshop will look at new research on trauma, from attachment issues to incident-based trauma, and explore specific methods for implicitly and explicitly working with these core issues.

OBJECTIVES:

  • How a deep embodied atunement with your clients helps them heal from attachment trauma and become more able to be relational, mindful, and heart-centered
  • How your face, voice, and body language help heal attachment wounds in your clients
  • Three breathing techniques you can teach your clients to help them regulate their nervous system
  • Three simple steps to achieve an embodied heart-centered engagement with your clients

PRESENTER:

Patrick Dougherty, MA, LP

 

Mr. Dougherty has been a licensed clinical psychologist and been in practice for over 35 years and has been working with men’s issues for the past 25 years. He’s the author of Qigong in Psychotherapy and A Whole-Hearted Embrace.
