The NYMHCA Learning Institute Presents: Improv for Building Counseling Relationship - A Zoom presentation.
Presenter: Joan Ingalls, LMHC, Ed.D., MA & Jennifer Bullock, LCS
The Counseling relationship isn't just a vehicle for problem-solving or an empathic emotional environment for sharing. Emerging research and practice modalities point to how the activity of building that relationship can support emotional growth and make problems vanish, for it is our emotional underdevelopment that produces many problems.
In this experiential workshop, attendees play improv theater games and participate in role-plays. We explore how improv helps us be more present - better listeners and responders - as we build our relationships. Participants gain skills for continuously building the counseling relationship throughout the course of therapy.
Event Title: Aligning Mind and Body: Behavioral Health Treatment and Chiropractic Care
Presenter/s: David W. Eckert, Dr. Alex Eckert, & Dr. Sherry Nau
Event Description: This presentation will focus on the body's conscious and preconscious responses to stress and trauma, the mind-body connection, increasing awareness of this dynamic, and understanding what individuals can do to thrive both emotionally and physically in today’s world. Content on the mind- body connection will be drawn from the work of Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, Patricia Ogden, and Dr. Dan Siegel. Emphasis will be placed on a holistic approach to healing that is centered in mindfulness and healthy life choices. The neurobiology of stress will be reviewed from a biopsychosocial perspective and Dr. Alex Eckert will demonstrate how the effects of stress and trauma are stored by the body and treated through chiropractic care. Sherri Nau, LCSW, will show how an understanding of the mind-body connection, and effective collaboration with a chiropractor, can help clients with a great number of presenting concerns. The goal of this presentation is to help participants understand how emotional and physical wellness are intertwined, and how to use integrated treatment approaches to activate change.
