Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE®) Experiential Workshop  

May 13, 2017: 10:30am-12:00pm

Presented by Jennifer L. Rolnick, Psy.D., Certified TRE® Provider

As mammals, we have a unique, naturally occurring shaking/tremor response that occurs in the body to release the excess charge after significant stress or a traumatic event. Created by Dr. David Berceli, TRE® safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. TRE® is a series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma.  When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance.

This workshop is experiential and is intended for those who are new to TRE® or who need a refresher. This modality is for anyone who serves others, is seeking a natural and effective tool for reducing the impact of everyday stress on their mind and body, and wishes to increase their ability to facilitate healing. No prior level of physical fitness or special ability is required.

Clinical Applications and Healing Potential of Dream Work 

October 14th 10:00 am – 3:00 pm (Lunch on your own from 12-12:45)

Presented by Ryan Maher, MA, LCPC, CYT

Dreams: Are they relevant? Can they help in our work with clients? What are their uses and applications? Ever feel lost when a client shares a dream they are curious or excited about? This workshop will examine different ways dreams have influenced human experience and how integrating dreams in clinical practice can deepen and energize the therapeutic experience. We will also look at what new research in neuroscience might mean for the future of dream work. You will leave with fresh ideas of how to work with your client’s dreams and what their dreams can offer in relation to diagnostic insight, treatment plan, and prognosis.

CEUs: 4 CEUs will be provided to Licensed Clinical Psychologists, LCSWs, LMFTs, and LCPCs.
