Stop Overreacting: Effective Strategies for Calming Emotions

Judith Siegel, PhD, LCSW
presented by Leading Edge Seminars, Inc

Thursday, October 10, 2013
9:00 am to 4:30 pm
YWCA Elm Centre, 87 Elm Street, Toronto

So many of our clients’ problems can be traced to behaviours and responses that are the result of emotional overreactions. In this workshop, Judith Siegel, best-selling author of the book of the same title, will enable you to help your clients identify emotional triggers and discover new ways of processing impulsive thoughts and feelings.

You will learn how to teach your clients that their emotions undermine their ability to remain rational under stress. You will also learn how to help clients make sense of past traumas and unresolved interpersonal disappointments. When emotionally laden memories are activated, the emotions that were captured in the past can co-mingle with those in a current situation, leading to feelings that are extreme and confusing. Often, clients have no awareness of their emotional response or the circumstances that have triggered it.

This workshop will help you work with couples and individuals so that they are better able to recognize dysregulation, as well as unhelpful cognitive mechanisms, such as splitting and flooding, that add fuel to the fire. Techniques that help restore balance and connection will be shared, along with ways to neutralize and heal painful memories.

You will learn —

Why neural networks are important and how to apply this information in your work
The difference between emotions, feelings, and emotional dysregulation
About typical triggers of emotions and how to defuse them
Techniques to help clients tolerate difficult emotional states
How to create trauma narratives that help heal the past
How to help partners become attuned to each other’s pain
