We have lost the “Art of Boredom.” We live in accelerated times and there is a need for understanding and applying the basics of Relaxation and stress reduction to all our client populations.
This presentation will address many of the relaxation techniques that can be utilized. Methods and applications will be reviewed and experienced. The clinician will be able to incorporate an effective stress management plan in all their client populations. This presentation will also address working with challenging populations who typically have a hard time with the “Lost Art of Boredom” such as chemical dependence populations and stuck and resistant clients. This presentation will also address working with trauma clients and demonstrate stress reduction techniques specific to working with this population who do not respond to the conventional stress reduction models. Modifications and new insights and applications will be shared to bring new refreshing approaches to healing trauma.
This presentation will go beyond just the basic relaxation techniques to equip the clinician with effective and proven evidence based interventions to make their clinical work and outcomes more effective.
This presentation will be of value and benefit to all behavioral health and health care professionals with a desire to advance their clinical skills. This presentation is suitable for social workers, counselors, case managers, marriage and family therapists and human service professionals. This presentation will be particularly beneficial to those clinicians working with stuck and challenging client populations and particularly to clinicians working with trauma clients.
