Whatever inner voice or “self-talk” people follow will create their experience. Since human nature is unconsciously conditioned to operate from ego, they often follow a voice of fear, creating “mistaken beliefs” that immobilize and limit their potential. Given the basic premise that we can choose our thoughts, participants will learn how to identify and heal mistaken, fear-based beliefs and the feelings that result from them.

Throughout life we are in relationship: caregiver-child, family member, intimate partner and even therapist/client (to name a few). Safe, supportive relationships are important and can have long-term impact on growth, wellbeing, and life satisfaction. Research has also found that the capacity to relate empathetically and attune to others occurs primarily through our non-verbal- body and movement patterns.
We all dissociate. We all have basic splits within - “Part of me wants or feels .... but another part of me wants or feels the opposite!”
The DSM 5 made some changes to the Dissociative Disorders category. The scope of this class will offer the participant to have an understanding of the Dissociative disorders in the DSM 5, and to learn one technique for resolving a basic split.

Brief Psychotherapy With Individuals and Couples
This introduction to ecopsychology is meant for therapists, psychologists, social workers, students in these fields or anyone dealing with the health and well-being of clients. The goal of ecopsychology is to create healing through awe leading to unity between people and the natural world. Combining Adlerian Holism and Striving for Social Interest we will claim how cooperation creates both social interest and unity that Adler declares is mentally healthy. We will also use Adler’s treatment of holism to decide how to live in our largest system, Earth.
