    The Wisdom of the Heart: Where Psychology, Health and Spirituality Meet

            Joan Borysenko, PhD

    Honorary Conference Chairperson
    This distinguished pioneer in integrative medicine is a world-renowned expert in the mind-body connection. Her work has been foundational in an international health-care revolution that recognizes the role of meaning, and the spiritual dimensions of life, as an integral part of health and healing. Harvard Medical School trained cancer cell biologist, a licensed psychologist, and bestselling author of 15 books including New York Times bestselling Minding the Body, Mending the Mind, and her recent The Plant Plus Diet Solution: Personalized Nutrition for Life.

    We understand intuitively that love is what matters most. Scientifically, we’re beginning to uncover its links to health, happiness, and peace of mind. From the role of oxytocin and bonding in women’s adaptive response to stress, to the healing power of gratitude and forgiveness, to the importance of empathy and connectedness in health and longevity, we can document the effects of love on mental wellbeing and physical health. Living a life grounded in compassion and optimism rather than fear and pessimism is the cornerstone of spirituality as well as positive psychology. Retraining the brain and nervous system to generate “heartfulness” is a natural companion to mindfulness both easily taught and learned by children as well as adults.

    Problem-Solving Theatre (PST)

            Meg Givnish, PhD

    A nationally recognized clinician, teacher, trainer and motivational speaker, she was among the first professionals to be certified as a Trainer, Educator and Practitioner by the American Board of Examiners in Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama, training directly under Dr. J. L. Moreno, the founder of psychodrama. From 1981 to 1983, she served as President of the Moreno Institute, an organization that has helped individuals from all over the world learn about Psychodrama. In 1980, she created the Problem-Solving Theater Troupe. She was also featured in “When Hopes Become Despair”, an award-winning documentary on teen suicide, and received an Emmy for her work on the special “What Will We Do about Momma?” of which she was the writer, director and narrator. She is Executive Director for Clinical Development for Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches.

    PST is a blend of therapeutic drama, therapy, humor and spontaneity that has educated and entertained thousands across the United States. This adaptation of Psychodrama is sometimes referred to as “Psychodrama at arm’s length” since the role play and scene development is performed by trained actor/therapists who represent problems which are expressed by members of the audience. In this audience participation form of clinical Psychodrama, actor/therapists take on the roles of people in situations which represent concerns of inter-personal difficulties that may exist among members of the audience. It can be described as therapeutic improvisational drama.

    Working with Easily Triggered and ‘Acting Out’ Trauma Survivors

            John Briere, PhD

    Many of the most troubling long-term effects of interpersonal trauma is the tendency for some survivors to be involved in externalizing or “acting out” behaviors. This workshop will describe the typical process through which this occurs, including the notion of “triggering”, affect dysregulation, and tension reduction behaviors. Interventions specifically useful for such individuals will be explored.

    Eliminating Self-Defeating Behaviors

    8:45–10:00am

    One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

            Larry Dossey, MD

    An internal medicine physician, former Chief of Staff of Medical City Dallas Hospital, and former co-chairman of the Panel on Mind/Body Interventions, National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, National Institutes of Health. He is executive editor of the peer-previewed journal Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing. He is the author of twelve books on the role of consciousness and spirituality in health, which have been translated into languages around the world. His most recent book is ONE MIND: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters. He lectures around the world.

    Many health care professionals have presumed that medical science and spirituality don’t mix. These presumptions need to be reexamined. Recent evidence shows that individuals who follow some spiritual path—it seems not to matter which one they choose—live on average around seven years longer than those who do not follow such a path, and they have a lower incidence of most major diseases. Among the additional assumptions that are changing is the belief that consciousness is produced by the brain and is confined to it. In contrast, the great wisdom traditions affirm that there is a collective, universal mind, of which all individual minds are a part. This image of consciousness has been affirmed by recent scientific evidence suggesting that consciousness is nonlocal—that it is infinite in space and time, therefore united and one. Dr. Dossey will examine the implications of this emerging view of the mind for health, healing, and human welfare. He will show that we are arriving at a view of consciousness that transcends death and annihilation, and that portends a majestic, new view of what it means to be human.

    10:30–11:30pm

    Mindfulness and Recovery: Quenching the Thirst for Wholeness

            Rokelle Lerner


    An international speaker and trainer on addiction, trauma and women’s issues. She is the Senior Clinical Advisor for Crossroads Centre Antigua. For the past eighteen years Rokelle has been the co-founder and clinical director of Spring Workshops in London, UK. She is also co-founder of Children Are People, Inc., a program used in thousands of schools throughout the US and Europe. Recipient of numerous awards for her work including Esquire magazines “Top 100 Women in the US Who are Changing the Nation” and the National Association of Children of Alcoholic’s Lifetime Achievement Award. She is the author of several books including The Object of My Affection is in My Reflection: Coping with Narcissists and the recently released Inkspirations for Recovery: A Coloring Companion Celebrating Recovery.

    The thirst for alcohol can be compared to men and women’s thirst for wholeness and a hunger for the sacred. One often self medicates in an effort to escape the present moment, numb their pain or avoid the “void” in their soul. Unfortunately the inability to be in the present moment doesn’t change because someone went to treatment. In order to experience the miracle of recovery, addicts need practical tools that will allow them to nourish their spirit and show up for their lives. This lecture will explore the topic of mindfulness in recovery and offer tools that will allow recovering addicts to embrace their birthright of serenity and wellbeing.

    11:30–12:30pm

Bill is also a Licensed Mental Health Professional and Certified Professional Counselor.

    Spirituality has often been left out of therapeutic work primarily because therapists haven’t been shown a respectful, non-intrusive way to bring it in to change work. But leaving out this important resource in people’s lives is impositional in another way. This session will provide a clear overview, definition of spirituality and provide easy to understand and use tools for spiritual assessment and intervention.

    2:00–3:30pm

    CONCURRENT WORKSHOPS

    The Art and Science of Resilience: From Surviving to Thriving

            Joan Borysenko, PhD

    Resilience is more than the ability to bounce back from adversity. It’s a transformational process that reveals our inherent nobility, a rite of passage from pieces to peace. Mythologist Joseph Campbell called this passage The Hero’s Journey. It consists of three parts. Change disrupts life as usual. Next, we’re plunged into the unknown territory between no longer and not yet. There we can either despair and lose hope or—if we’re resilient—discover new strengths. The journey of resilience ends with giving back the wisdom we’ve gained to others.

    The Four Energies: Helping Clients Find Their Purpose and Direction in Life

            Bill O’Hanlon, MS, LMFT

    Clients often flounder when it comes to meaning, purpose and direction in life. Even after they recover from addiction, they are not sure what to do with themselves. This session gives a clear model for quickly helping clients discover vibrant life directions and find work with meaning and purpose.

    Poison Delivered in Nectar: When Passion Becomes Pathological (Relational Harm and Its After-Effects: A Somatic-Shamanic Model)

            Luisa Kolker, MA, LPCC


    A licensed psychotherapist in the state of New Mexico, with a full-time, private practice in shamanism and psychotherapy for over twenty-five years. In the 1980s, Luisa was invited to apprentice with master-metaphysician and healer Ioanna Salajan in Spain; she apprenticed one-on-one with Ms. Salajan for five years. She has been trained in Pia Mellody’s family-of-origin emotional trauma resolution model, and has studied numerous earth-based, shamanic traditions. Luisa offers dynamic shamanic-psychotherapy workshops and seasonal ceremonies in the United States and abroad.

    Attachment trauma in early life may predispose some individuals to having romantic and sexual attraction templates that are dysfunctional at best and fatal at worst. The drama of high intensity longing, temporary attainment and loss (all expressions of the simultaneous desire and dread of intimacy) are compulsively repeated until compassionate contact is made with the underlying, frozen complex of the abandoned self. She will introduce participants to her 3 Energy Body Healing Model, a somatic and shamanic model, which respectfully and safely bypasses habitual ego structures in order to make conscious, relational contact with the abandoned self.

    Resilience and the Healing Power of Story

            Kathleen Parrish, MA, LPC


    Clinical Director of Cottonwood Tucson, an internationally renowned, residential treatment program for co-occurring disorders in Tucson, Arizona.

Kathleen has worked in private practice, outpatient treatment, and residential treatment settings and has worked with trauma survivors for over 20 years, focusing on story, mindfulness, and self-compassion. She has written articles for Counselor, Addiction Professional, Addiction Today and Arizona Together magazines. She has presented seminars on trauma and eating disorder in the United States and Europe.

            Tanya Lauer, MC, LPC


    Holds a Master’s Degree in psychotherapy and counseling and has over twenty years working in trauma healing in various settings including outpatient trauma centers, psychiatric hospitals, inpatient treatment centers. Tanya currently works as a trauma specialist at Cottonwood Tucson. She has presented at conferences and facilitated workshops in the United States and Europe. She believes in the importance of developing narrative, mindfulness and self-compassion as essential skills for supporting trauma resolution and emphasizes the need for integration and the mind body connection in her work.

    Many clients suffer from the effects of trauma and PTSD. At any age, PTSD can also co-occur with many other problems, including depression, low self-esteem, substance use disorders, struggles with interpersonal relationships and self-harm behavior. Clinicians must understand the underlying negative beliefs that often complicate trauma recovery in clients. This workshop will review recent changes to diagnostic criteria for PTSD and will examine evidenced-based interventions in the treatment of trauma. Further, it will provide strategies to support trauma survivors in telling and transforming their story as they reclaim personal identity and integrity.

    Integrating Poetry and the Creative Arts into Trauma and Addiction Treatment

            Ericha Scott, PhD, LPCC

    Licensed as E. Hitchcock Scott, PhD, she has 31 years of professional experience working with those who have co-occurring addictions and complex trauma.

This first part of this 3.5 hour workshop will last approximately 1.5 hours and the experiential workshop plus small group processing will be 2 hours.

    CONCURRENT WORKSHOPS

    Breath and Meditation Practices for the Treatment of Trauma and Addiction

            Tommy Rosen


    Addiction is disconnection. Yoga is union. Addiction is characterized by a sense of lack. Yoga brings wholeness. Addiction is a dis-ease. Yoga brings ease. There is an old yogic saying: If you can control the breath, you can control the mind. Come join Tommy Rosen as he shares several powerful, yet accessible practices that will add to your personal toolbox and give you an edge in your work with your clients.

    Recovering the Essential Self: A Paradigm Shift for Life

            Sandra Felt, LCSW, BCD

    Author of the newly released Beyond the Good-Girl Jail: When You Dare to Live from Your True Self.

Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work and former director of a child abuse treatment research program, she trains therapists at national conferences, enjoys sunrise hikes, and plays bluegrass bass.

    When we listen from a deeper place, we hear a deeper truth. Everyone once lived from the true self. How was this aspect of development interrupted? Where did the true self go? How do we tap into this essential anchor now to strengthen healing from the long-term impact of trauma, addiction, and eating disorders? Learn the language of the self and sure-fire strategies to Recognize, Reconnect, Rebuild, and Return to living from the strength of the true self.

    Projection & Shamanic Soul Loss: Psychological & Spiritual Dynamics of Boundary Failure

            Luisa Kolker, MA, LPCC

    Participants will learn about the cross-cultural, shamanic phenomenon of “soul-loss.” Soul-loss will be discussed as a collapsing or fragmentation of the integrity of an individual’s regulating ego-consciousness. The re-integration of these collapsed or fragmented aspects of self is called “soul retrieval” in shamanic traditions, and is an organic process intuitively practiced by some therapists. Luisa will share ways in which that reintegration process may be structured for optimal effect.

    Inclusive Therapy: A Simple and Powerful Method of Dissolving Resistance in Clients

            Bill O’Hanlon, MS, LMFT

    This session details a new model of therapy designed to deal with the ambivalence to change that challenging clients often bring to the therapy process. A gentle way to approach conflicted clients to dissolve resistance, binds and dissociation in a way that rapidly moves the change process forward will be discussed. This method can be especially useful in dealing with borderline, hostile/violent clients.

    Integrating Poetry and the Creative Arts into Trauma and Addiction Treatment (Continued) (This workshop will extend until 6:00 PM)

    This seminar will address the convergence of Science and Spirituality with an examination of how consciousness emerged. Special attention will be on how evolution shaped consciousness and how the new developments in neuroscience are relevant to understanding consciousness and spirituality. Finally, the seminar addresses the question as to whether there is common ground between the developments in physics, consciousness, and the teachings of the spiritual traditions.

    10:30–11:30am

    From Resistance to Resilience: Techniques from the Precursors Model

            Fred Hanna, PhD

    Professor in the Department of Counseling at Adler University, Chicago, IL and also serves as a Faculty Associate at Johns Hopkins University. He has held positions on the editorial boards of six scholarly journals and has published a wide range of professional articles. His research interests have focused on developing the Precursors Model of Change. Fred has also developed and published many innovative clinical techniques aimed at positive change for aggressive adolescents, addicted clients, suicidal clients, victims of personal and cultural oppression, and criminal personalities. Author of the book, Therapy with Difficult Clients: Using the Precursors Model to Awaken Change.

    Graduate schools typically do not teach courses that address how to approach involuntary, highly resistant and defiant clients. The Precursors Model offers a host of innovative and immediately applicable techniques that soften resistance and converts unwilling clients into those who willingly engage in counseling. This can often be done in one session. Over a dozen strategies and techniques are offered. You know about the defense mechanisms. The precursors are the offense mechanisms of change.

    11:30–12:30pm

    Healing Rhythms

            Andrea Barthwell, MD, FASAM

    Founder and Director at Two Dreams Outer Banks, Dr. Barthwell served as Deputy Director for Demand Reduction at the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). She received her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Michigan. Following post-graduate training she began her practice in the Chicago area. Dr. Barthwell served as President of the Encounter Medical Group, is a Past President of The American Society of Addiction Medicine and Chief Medical Officer of The Manor.

    Every living organism has a natural rhythm. These rhythms are disrupted by illness, particularly drug and alcohol use. A drug can create false sleep. A drug can stimulate alertness. A drug can suppress appetite. Another can stimulate appetite. This workshop explores the science behind living rhythmically, strategies that promote and restore natural rhythms, and the role of sleep, nutrition, meditation and exercise in the 21st century approach to healing oneself in recovery.

    Brain-Based Therapy and Anxiety Disorders

            John B. Arden, PhD

    Recent advances in neuroscience have increased our knowledge of how and why people change. Brain-based therapy synthesizes neuroscience, evidence-based treatment, psychotherapy research, and attachment theory into a hybrid therapeutic model to help with anxiety disorders. This training will also examine the use of brain-based therapy to enhance outcome with clients who have been traumatized. The role that brain function plays in mood, memory and behavior.

    Discovering Spiritual Equals: The Underlying Key to Healing Trauma and the True Self

            Sandra Felt, LCSW, BCD

    Trauma survivors simply cannot heal in the same relationship system that injured them. This explains why research has shown that the therapeutic alliance is the most accurate indicator of therapeutic outcome, not the treatment modality. The same old ways of relating will always elicit the same old power struggles and protective reactions, regardless which treatment techniques are being utilized. But when we examine the three basic relationship positions from which we can relate to clients, we discover how we can relate from a different system and reference point called spiritual equals that makes it possible for clients to feel safe enough to heal and dare to live from their true self. The questions to ask are these: What part of us do we relate to clients from? What part of a client do we relate to? And how do we know which way we are relating?

    Radically Spiritual: 10 Techniques for Achieving Profound Well Being

            Fred Hanna, PhD

    This workshop consists a collection of techniques taken from Asian sources such as the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Vijnanabhairava, and also from mystical Christian, Buddhist, and Existential sources as well. Each technique is designed to produce increased mental energy, increased coping ability, and a greater sense of calm, as well as bringing some negative mental processes under volitional control providing a corresponding sense of psychological liberation and freedom.

    Ethical Mindfulness: The Core Practice of Refuge Recovery

             Dave Smith


    Buddhist meditation teacher, addiction treatment specialist, experienced speaker and published author. Dave is the Guiding Teacher and Program Director of the Against the Stream Nashville Meditation Center and teaches over 300 meditation classes and workshops a year. He provides direct services for mental health agencies, public libraries, and speaks nationally at Addiction and Behavioral Health conferences. Dave recently relocated to Los Angeles to work full time for Refuge Recovery Center.

    New areas of science, such as the field of contemplative neuroscience, are emerging to study the effects of mindfulness meditation on the human brain. Despite the increasing diversity of views among different mindfulness communities, one thing remains clear: mindfulness has positive mental and emotional consequences for those who practice it. As mindfulness enters a world with epidemic anxiety, depression, trauma and addiction the need for practices that hold non-harming as a core value is overwhelmingly obvious and without significant remedy. Ethical mindfulness offers a complete set of tools to end suffering. As our understanding of these skills improves, our willingness to live ethically will grow. We will find that we’re able to move through our lives with much more ease and presence.

    CONCURRENT WORKSHOPS

    Planting SEEDS for a Healthy Brain

            John B. Arden, PhD

    There is tremendous misinformation about brain health in the popular press and in the pop psychotherapy genre. Every year there is a new fad which very soon drifts away when a new one emerges that supposedly improves the brain. This seminar describes five key factors that research has consistently shown to support brain health. The research behind each factor of the formula is strongly supported by new developments from neuroscience that has overthrown many of our preconceived beliefs about mental health and the brain.

    Alpha Brain Wave: the Realm of the Inner Healer


            Mary Faulkner, MA


    Integrative Hypnotherapy speaks the language of the heart. It assists clients in slowing down the thinking mind (beta wave) and relaxing into an alpha brain wave where healing occurs naturally. Alpha wave corresponds to the parasympathetic nervous system where the body and mind rest and regenerate. The brain releases serotonin, dopamine, and other feel good chemicals. Ideally we switch back and forth between beta and alpha brain waves throughout the day relaxing and regenerating. Stress and busy schedules interrupt this natural process of maintaining health and wellbeing. You’ll have a chance to experience your alpha state, enjoy some restoration and be able to introduce clients to this simple and profound healing state.

    Meditation for Transcendence: Achieving Bliss, Being, and Exhilaration


            Fred Hanna, PhD

    This workshop focuses on the three major styles of meditation and the bliss that results from transcendence. Many myths will be busted in this workshop and the emphasis is on advanced practice, way beyond the usual descriptions and practices. The 3 styles of meditation covered are concentrative, surrender, and mindfulness. Each style is described in the context of transcendence and advanced tips are offered on the execution of the technique so as to maximize efficiency, benefits, and the joy, awareness, and intuitive knowledge for which meditation is famous.

    Psychology, Spirituality and True Happiness

            Cardwell C. Nuckols, PhD

    This personal and professional development skills training utilizes integrated multiple pathways leading one toward true happiness. This powerful approach incorporates current understandings of developmental psychology, neurobiology, and contemplative approaches to permanently dissolve aspects of the false-self (ego). This dissolution or emptying of self opens one up to spiritual healing. This realization is the key to serenity and selfless service—sources of true happiness.

    Participants will be able to:

    1. Identify effective treatment approaches and develop counseling skills for a range of issues in mental health, behavioral health, and the addictions.

    2. Identify and implement key issues and therapeutic implications of various spiritual insights and practices.

    3. Identify symptoms of trauma and PTSD and appropriate therapeutic treatment for these issues.

    4. To identify the key implications of neuroscience research as it applies to addictive disorders, anxiety, trauma and other areas of counseling and psychotherapy.
