 Topic: Immigration Evaluations: Making a Powerful Impact while Creating a  Thriving 
 Practice

 Presenter: Georgia King, LCSW

 1 CEU available

 RSVP to caroldemeo@si.rr.com by 3/1/2022

 Date: Saturday, February 19th, 2022 at 11 AM - 1 PM
 Topic: Clinical Meditation and Imagery Training

 Based on meditation research, the latest neuroscience is describing the awakening of higher brain   states which release the emotions of joy, interconnectedness and oneness and calm the lower,   fear-  based brain. Concurrently, major medical schools, including NYU, Harvard, Oxford, Yale, and   Stanford, are opening psychedelic medicine centers to study and administer psychedelic drugs   such as psilocybin to induce spiritual states and reduce fear in medical (cancer, addiction,   depression) patients. Mental health counselors need to be aware of these developments as they   point to a new frontier in counseling – how to awaken these beneficial states in clients without the   use of drugs. This webinar will include case studies and practical methods.

  Presenter: Richard Schaub, PhD, LMHC, director of the Huntington Meditation and Imagery Center.    He is the author of five books and teaches internationally.
