WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
In this workshop, you will learn how, in only 4 sessions, you can equip your clients to master the concepts needed for overcoming depression, make the basic value shift essential to recovery, and learn the skills that will empower them to overcome depression and prevent relapse. You will take away structured protocols to intervene on various types of depression and anxiety. You will learn a solid approach that directly addresses the key feature in the anxiety/panic process – a fear of exercising one’s own power. Dr. Elliott will explain how learning a sense of one’s self in relationships contributes to the onset of symptoms. She will explain the 6-step WILFY process for equipping the client to unlearn such faulty learning. In addition, she will offer two essential therapeutic interventions to empower the client in avoiding relapse. Anthetic is a term that means “blossoming”. This model, called Anthetic Therapy, fully and creatively supports the unfolding of the inner freedom we are called to support and develop in our clients.
