Learning to Bounce Back from Disappointment, Difficulty, and Even Disaster
Has your life ever taken a challenging turn that you didn’t see coming? Dealing effectively with the challenges and crises of life is the core of our resilience and well-being. Developing flexible and adaptive strategies for coping with everyday disappointments and extraordinary disasters is at the heart of any transformative process—and essential to recovering from any trauma.
This workshop draws on the evidence-based tools of relational psychotherapy, is informed by neuroscience, and emphasizes mindfulness and self-compassion practices to show you how to shift brain functioning and coping behaviors. It includes presentations, guided meditations and visualizations, group discussions, gentle movement, and written reflection.
You will gain tools to deepen the self-compassion and empathy that connect you to your inner resources for thriving and flourishing.
Highlights of the workshop will be learning reliable and proven ways to:
- Reverse the impact of stress and trauma
- Come out of anxiety, depression, addictions, grief, loneliness, guilt, and shame
- Strengthen relationships that are healthy and nourishing
- Bypass the voice of the inner critic and open to self-trust and new possibilities.
As a result, you will learn to discern options and make wise choices that lead to a truly authentic sense of self, meaningful work, and connection to your life’s purpose.
You will take home specific practices to continue to rewire your brain’s automatic patterns of response and reinforce new patterns of resiliency and well-being.
Master practices to strengthen your resilience in all aspects of life, from dealing with minor discomfort to traumatic events.
Expand your ability to see a wide variety of options, choices, and avenues that you can explore for living your best life.
Trust yourself and your capacity to overcome the inevitable obstacles that can arise throughout a lifetime.
