Creating Meaning - Dr. Sheldon Solomon
On the Role of Death in Life CEs

This Webinar introduces an overview of Terror Management Theory (TMT). TMT posits that the juxtaposition of an inclination toward self-preservation with the highly developed intellectual abilities that make humans aware of their vulnerabilities and inevitable death creates the potential for paralyzing terror. One of the most important functions of cultural worldviews is to manage the terror associated with death awareness. This is accomplished primarily through the cultural mechanism of self-esteem, which consists of the belief that one is a valuable contributor to a meaningful universe.

In an Unspoken Voice - Dr. Peter Levine
How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness CEs

Trauma is neither a disease nor a disorder but is rather an injury caused by fright, helplessness and loss. By enlisting the wisdom of the living sensing body and engaging our innate capacity to self-regulate high states of arousal and intense emotions, trauma can be transformed. In this Webinar, Dr. Levine draws on more than 40 years as a body oriented clinician, parallel studies of stress, biology and recent developments in the neurosciences. He links an evolutionary understanding of the source of trauma to a spiritual dimension of how we as human beings can be strengthened by traumatic healing. This journey unfolds–if we learn to listen to the “unspoken voice of the body.”

Secure and Insecure Love - Dr. Phil Shaver and Dr. Lisa Firestone
An Attachment Perspective CEs

Both clinicians and researchers have noted the importance of close interpersonal relationships for the development of personality, character, and overall well-being. Attachment theory was originally created by a psychoanalytically oriented psychiatrist, John Bowlby, but unlike many psychoanalytic theories, attachment theory has been vigorously researched during the past 35 years. Recently, researchers have been exploring adolescent and adult attachment, with implications for relationship (e.g., marital) quality and individual well-being (both psychological and physical). This Webinar presents evidence concerning the mental and neural processes underlying attachment patterns, the relation of the patterns to particular forms of psychopathology and unhappiness, and the potential to intervene to increase a person’s basic sense of security and the success of his or her close relationships with others.

Relationships 2.0 - Dr. Pat Love
Navigating love, lust, commitment, infidelity in the new millennium CEs

Relationships have changed drastically since the dawn of the 21st Century. Dating, mating, single-life, sex-life, monogamy, matrimony, cohabitation, co-operation, fidelity, infidelity—all look different than one short generation ago. As if it weren’t challenging enough to keep up with pathological, technological, ethnic, educational, gender, geographic, socio-economic, and sexual diversity, we now have the largest generational gap in modern history to contend with which means the relationship expectations and mores that made total sense to the Boomers now baffle many Millennials. Cultural shifts in relationships can create collateral damage in sex and love. In an age when expectations as well as stressors are greater, it’s more difficult to keep healthy love alive. This webinar will take a look at the state of our unions and then focus on fidelity and infidelity in the 21st Century. Models for treatment and recovery will be presented.

Love in the Time of Twitter - Dr Pat Love and Dr. Lisa Firestone

While 90% of young people still say that marriage is in their long-term plans, if trends continue, only half will be able to even come close to that goal.

Fortunately, neuroscience is quickly providing answers and strategies for helping. So today, as more individuals and couples seek help for their relationship issues, we, the clinicians, can offer better help and insight.

Suicide - Dr. Lisa Firestone
What Mental Health Professionals Need to Know CEs
For those in the mental health community, suicide is not a rare occurrence but a very real psychological emergency and tragic occupational hazard. Half of people who die by suicide have seen a mental health professional at some point. Most practicing psychotherapists see five suicidal clients a month, while one in four therapists will lose a client to suicide. After experiencing this loss themselves, 25 percent of families will sue a mental health provider.

Most therapists have not received adequate training in dealing with a suicidal client. They have been provided with limited or outdated information that no longer meets the standard of care. In the past 10 years, there has been a wealth of insightful and essential research and data revealing what works and what doesn't when it comes to preventing suicide. With suicide on the rise in the United States, there is no more essential time for all therapists to learn the tools and techniques that can save a life.

Self-Compassion - Dr. Kristin Neff
A Conversation with Dr. Kristin Neff CEs
This webinar will explore what the experience of compassion feels like. First, to have compassion for others you must notice that they are suffering. Second, compassion involves feeling moved by others’ suffering so that your heart responds to their pain (the word compassion literally means to “suffer with”). Having compassion also means that you offer understanding and kindness to others when they fail or make mistakes, rather than judging them harshly. Finally, when you feel compassion for another (rather than mere pity), it means that you realize that suffering, failure, and imperfection is part of the shared human experience. Self-compassion involves acting the same way towards yourself when you are having a difficult time, fail, or notice something you don’t like about yourself. Instead of just ignoring your pain with a “stiff upper lip” mentality, you stop to tell yourself “this is really difficult right now,” how can I comfort and care for myself in this moment?

Changing Sense of Identity - Dr. Lisa Firestone

"In this Webinar, Dr. Lisa Firestone will discuss the formation of identity and the ways we can reshape it. Our identity is neither fixed nor one dimensional. In order to discover who we really are, we have to let go of the “shoulds” and “roles” laid out for us by our history. We must also take steps to free ourselves from the self-critical thoughts and self-limiting psychological defenses that have bent us out of shape. In her presentation, Dr. Firestone will introduce the concept of differentiation, a step-by-step approach to revealing one’s true self. She will explain the role of the “critical inner voice” in holding us back and discuss how practicing self-compassion can change the way we see ourselves, making real change possible. She will explore Daniel Siegel’s concept of “selfing,” as a means to “surf the waves” of self and discover who we are."

Helping Clients Develop Secure Attachment - Dr. Lisa Firestone

In this illuminating, two-part Webinar, Dr. Lisa Firestone will integrate the latest attachment theory and neurobiological research to help clinicians understand attachment and how it impacts psychotherapy. In two 90-minute sessions (three hours total), this online workshop will focus on how to help patients create coherent narratives, so that they can move from less secure forms of attachment to earned secure attachment and have a deeper sense of inner security. Research in neurobiology shows that when a person writes a coherent narrative, they actually rewire their brain to feel more secure within themselves and their relationships.

Breaking Free from Bad Relationship Patterns - Dr. Lisa Firestone

In this 90-minute Webinar, Dr. Lisa Firestone will shed light on crucial ways one’s early environment influences their romantic relationships. Drawing on research from attachment theory as well as her and her father, Dr. Robert Firestone’s, concepts of the “critical inner voice” and “selection, distortion, and provocation,” she will explain why people are subconsciously driven to recreate dynamics from their past. Whether by choosing partners who make them feel old, familiar ways, repeating negative patterns they witnessed or experienced, or playing out half of a destructive dynamic, people are rarely aware of the ways they create their own nightmare in relationships. Fortunately, by identifying these patterns and connections, both individuals and therapists working with clients can learn tools for breaking free of defenses and behaviors that no longer serve them and for making more conscious decisions about both who they want to be with and who they want to be in their relationships. With this knowledge, people can challenge deep-rooted patterns and forge a new romantic destiny.
