January

Overactive brain circuitry can trap clients in cycles of rumination that can keep them anxious and depressed. Letting go of ruminating worries, or banishing persistent thoughts, like I’m not good enough or I’m worthless, isn’t easy for clients and when ruminations don’t shift, therapists can begin to feel stuck themselves.

You will learn practical interventions to use in-session for eliminating these patterns and replacing them with attitudes of calm and competency.
