Program Description
In this workshop, Dr. Briere describes a nonpathologizing approach to the treatment of complex trauma that involves 4 pathways to trauma resolution:
reworking activated attachment schemas in the presence of a compassionate and attuned therapist;
reducing negative emotional responses to memory by encouraging awareness and mindfulness during emotional processing;
increasing capacity to regulate and tolerate negative emotional states; and
helping to change the client's relationship to his or her internal experience through greater metacognitive awareness.
John integrates Buddhist tenets of impermanence, dependent arising, and loving-kindness into trauma therapy, and reveals how this ancient philosophy can inform and improve modern approaches to treatment.
