Daybreak Therapy and Training
June 8th and 9th, 2018
Ramada Plaza - Toronto, Canada
This is a Mind-Body-Spirit Conference to celebrate holistic psychotherapy and integrative healing in the field of mental health and addictions. Here's your opportunity to connect and study with like-minded therapists who want to bring the best of mind-body-sprit approaches to clinical practice.
The conference will be of special interest to Social Workers, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Physicians, Nurses, and Psychotherapists.
The loss of connection with ourselves can manifest in any number of physical and mental health conditions. So healing, then, is reconnecting, becoming whole again. That's the origin of the word "healing."
~ Dr. Gabor Mate, M.D., Conference Faculty

Why be afraid of the "S" word in Mind-Body-Spirit?
Farzana Doctor, MSW, RSW, C.Hyp / Workshop Faculty /CBC Nominated: "Ten Canadian Women Writers You Need to Read Now."
During the Conference Program, you'll be putting your fear aside, as you learn how to maintain professional commitment and scope of practice, while honouring the psycho-spiritual journey of your clients.
You'll be hearing from regulated practitioners who have thriving private practices focused on ethical, professional and holistic psychotherapy.
I think that the spiritual world is important...I try to be in touch with this whole other part of our existence that we maybe don't think enough about
-Farzana Doctor, MSW, RSW, Conference Faculty
Have questions about maintaining legislative requirements, while still offering an integrative and innovative approach to healing? Well, we've got a power-packed panel on that very subject, PLUS workshop leaders dedicated to teaching the best and highest standards in mind-body-spirit mental health and addictions care.
Central to the focus of all workshops is the creation of a sacred space in clinical practice. In addition, clinicians will have the opportunity to meditate in group sangha celebrations. Whether it's a joy journalling experience, chanting or delving into the subject of your own healing signature, you'll have ample opportunity between formal workshops for heart-led reflections and networking.
Our leading edge faculty are committed to sharing innovative practices and techniques that are both evidence-based and holistic, so that the entire conference program is structured as a "how to" guide on integrative psychotherapy for holistically minded mental health professionals.
I believe in techniques. We owe it to our clients to be skilled. But, to be our best clinical self, we need to have both wisdom and compassion. All the techniques in the world aren't going to do the job if we can't convey love and compassion.
