Sat, Jan 5 2019Adult Children of Parents with NPD/BPD Support Group, 3034594776
Having a parent with Borderline or Narcissistic Personality Disorder isn't always easy to identify. You long ago learned to agree completely, in order to maintain the peace, because those with the illness and no willingness to change experience disagreement as rejection. Anyone in their lives can tell you, they're never quite sure when the switch gets flipped, and suddenly the exciting flow of attention and admiration gets cut off, leaving you cold and alone, prey to the hostility that follows. If you're someone raised by a parent or other caregiver with BPD, you might well be convinced that they are right. As you look around, you feel how foreign you are from others who aren't constantly second-guessing themselves, who are at ease with being less-than-perfect, and comfortable in relationships where they can let themselves be themselves. Your shame might even convince you not to talk about it because of course no one will understand. Except for others raised by those with BPD/NPD. Imagine getting together in a group, debunking the lies you learned about your selves and the world. Sharing the risk of removing the mask you've built, and instead recognizing that not only are those around you more wonderful as their authentic selves...so are you. This structured group will be held once a month on the first Saturday of the month, from 11-12:30, at Denver's Peoplehouse in the Highlands west of downtown. Interested participants to be screened first. Maximum of 7. Learn More...

Somatic EMDR Tools for Trauma Treatment - Somatic EMDR Workshop - Boulder, Colorado - March 2, 2019 (Saturday) to March 3, 2019 (Sunday) - APA, NBCC, and EMDRIA credit hours available - This EMDRIA approved two-day Somatic EMDR Workshop -- taught by Barb Maiberger and Dr. Arielle Schwartz, authors of "EMDR Therapy and Somatic Psychology: Interventions to Enhance Embodiment" -- is designed to help EMDR therapists learn the foundational somatic skills necessary to navigate profound somatic experiences during the 8 Phases of EMDR therapy. While we know in EMDR therapy that the body is an important element of the modality, we have found that many therapists are scared of the body's natural responses that can arise in trauma treatment. Research has shown that effective trauma therapy requires a holistic approach to deal with the cognitive, emotional and somatic symptoms of PTSD. Our approach is an integrative approach to help EMDR therapists navigate the complexities of helping traumatized clients become more embodied in EMDR therapy.

Sat, Mar 30 2019 - Sun, Mar 31 2019Brain to Brain, Body to Body: The Relational Nature of Shame, Pat Ogden, BPI - 303 494 0393
This workshop explores the early roots of shame, its impact on the body and nervous system and on patterns of emotions, thoughts and beliefs. We will address the various manifestations of shame, and how shame is so often disguised and veiled, sometimes even to our clients themselves. Since the first shameful encounters occur between the infant or young child and attachment figure primarily through non-verbal communication, such as prosody, eye contact, and touch, we will explore the role of these in the therapy hour in terms of healing shame. Foundational principles that create a therapeutic container, or atmosphere, that maximize the possibility of working through shame will be illustrated and operationalized in clinical practice. With an emphasize on the relational nature of shame, special attention will be given to the importance of the therapeutic relationship, including both implicit and explicit communication between therapist and client, to resolve shame. The use of touch will be clarified including cautions, transference and countertransference, and potential benefits. Videotapes will illustrate interventions drawn from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy work with clients. CE credits are available. Learn More. Sign Up.
