I can't even tell you how many times I've heard this in the last 16 years as a couple's therapist. Clients seem relieved if not a little dumfounded by the ease with which I pose the inquiry: "Tell me a little or a lot about your erotic life." Or "What's your sex life look like these days?" There are so many ways to engage the conversation. In this talk we will explore individually, in dyads, and in large group discussion how to create more comfort with ourselves and our clients in engaging in the conversation and exploration of sex and sexuality. We will also discuss the large lexicon of sexual terminology so that definitions and usage are more clear.

Sat, Oct 19 - Sun, Oct 20Somatic EMDR Tools for Grief and Loss - Somatic EMDR Workshop in Boulder, Colorado - October 19, 2019 (Saturday) to October 20, 2019 (Sunday), 1-800-674-3637
This Somatic EMDR Workshop -- taught by Barb Maiberger, MA, LPC  and Katie Asmus, MA, LPC, BMP -- is designed to help EMDR therapists learn how to work with grief and loss using EMDR therapy. We often hear EMDR therapists say that they can't work with grief because clients are afraid that EMDR therapy will "take away" the grief and the connection to their loved one or meaningful situations. That is impossible! EMDR therapy cannot take a person's grief away. What it does is help people process what is stuck and holding them back and causing tremendous pain. If losses are not processed they can lead to distressing symptoms and dysfunctional thoughts, feelings, and body sensations. Through consciously exploring the impact of loss, therapists will deepen their understanding of the complex factors contributing to the grief process. Our integrative approach helps clients move with and through their pain emotionally, physically and spiritually using somatic tools that will help clients feel more alive and present while still honoring the complexity of the loss. - APA, EMDRIA, and NBCC CE credit hours available. - Visit our website or contact us to learn more.

Being able to understand and address root biochemical issues gives many mental health practitioners the edge they need to help clients overcome physiological distress that may drive relapse! *10 CEUs* This PART II, subsequent 3-month ACCELERATED EDUCATION course builds on the integrative nutrition knowledge acquired in PART I. It further applies the tenets of functional medicine to mental health and addiction recovery by evolving student understanding of metabolic regulation and support for particularly sensitive clients, with a focus on alcohol, ammonia, glutamate, and histamine. A thorough review and deeper understanding of where to find and how to use proteins (amino acids), lipids (fatty acids and cholesterol), and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) for mental health, digestive wellness, and detoxification will be explored. The synthesis, reuptake, regulation, and degradation of major neurotransmitters will be examined through a nutritional lens. The student will explore connections between liver and brain health by learning about histamine, alcohol, and ammonia metabolism and how they impact mental health and addiction recovery. Lectures meet on alternating Tuesday evenings from 6:15 - 8:15 pm MTN time, 1/14, 1/28, 2/11, 2/25, and 3/10.

Fri, Feb 7 2020 - Sun, Feb 9 2020Learn EMDR Therapy To Help Heal PTSD and Trauma - Complete EMDR Training Package - EMDR Training in Denver Tech Center / Englewood, Colorado - February and May 2020 - 10 Hours of Group Consultation Included, 1-800-674-3637
Learn EMDR Therapy to Heal PTSD and Trauma and See Real Change in Your Clients Today! As clients struggle with not making the changes they are longing for in therapy, many therapists become frustrated and feel helpless that they are lacking the skills to help their clients make lasting change and transformation. If therapists only pay attention to what the client is saying, and the client is struggling to make lasting change, then something is missing in the therapeutic process. The solution may be a somatic approach to healing trauma using EMDR therapy. This evidenced based, integrative modality, is a recommended treatment of choice by several international mental health organizations for healing PTSD and trauma. Millions of people around the world have transformed the negative impact experienced from traumatic events into more adaptive ways of living by increasing their confidence, sense of joy and feeling more at peace. Real change is possible! This EMDRIA Approved EMDR Training program is personally taught by Barb Maiberger, the founder and CE Program Administrator for the Maiberger Institute. Barb's proprietary approach has pioneered the further integration of somatic interventions into EMDR therapy. She is the author of "EMDR Essentials: A Guide for Clients and Therapists", and co-author of "EMDR Therapy and Somatic Psychology: Interventions to Enhance Embodiment in Trauma Treatment."
