Childhood and adolescence are critical times for emotional and psychological development. During these stages, anxiety patterns can begin that continue into adulthood.

When this response arises too frequently or intensely and doesn’t match actual situations of danger, it can interfere with life and cause great distress.

Narrative Therapy – Tools for Exploring Stories

Oct 15, 2018 (9 AM - 4 PM)
Price: $ 209.00 (*early rate) $ 235.00 (regular rate)
*early rate expires September 24, 2018

We are all influenced by stories. In some of these stories, we are active players; other stories are thrust upon us. When problems occur (as they inevitably do), “problem stories” have a tendency to overshadow other stories. A narrative counselling framework seeks to explore the numerous stories that shape and influence identity, problems, and preferred directions in life.

*early rate expires September 25, 2018

Many of the challenges that we experience are based on irrational and unhelpful thought patterns that impact both our feelings and our behaviour. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a time-sensitive, structured, and present-oriented form of counselling that focuses on problem solving and teaching individuals how to modify these distorted patterns of thinking. CBT is also one of the most well-known, researched, and practiced forms of therapy available to us.

Nov 28, 2018 (9 AM - 4 PM)
Price: $ 209.00 (*early rate) $ 235.00 (regular rate)
*early rate expires November 07, 2018

Many people who struggle with mental illness also struggle with an addiction. Recovery from both of these issues is complicated because they affect each other and are intertwined. Helpers may often be at a loss for where to start – did the addiction cause the mental illness, did the mental illness cause the addiction, or is there something else leading to both? This workshop provides a framework for working systemically with both issues at the same time.

Harm reduction is an approach to help people explore their relationship with substances and behaviours. It works to reduce and mitigate damage and pain, and offers strategies to increase and promote safety, choice, and control.

Price: $ 209.00 (*early rate) $ 235.00 (regular rate)

Helpers regularly encounter stories and symptoms of trauma in their roles.
