The Power of Emotion – Practical Applications of EFT and Attachment Theory

Ironically, for a field so focused on dealing with the emotional life, we, psychotherapists, are often intimidated by the raw power of clients’ feelings. All too frequently, we try to bypass or contain emotion, rather than actively using it for change. This recording will teach you how to utilize clients’ deepest emotional reserves as a positive force for shaping growth and transformation:

THE POWER OF EMOTION - 3 CPD HOURS
http://www.psychotherapydvds.com/The-Power-of-Emotion

You’ll learn to identify and differentiate between primary emotions (deep feelings that expose our vulnerability, leading us to conceal them for self-protection) and secondary emotions (the defensive emotional wall we create around ourselves, precisely so others won’t detect the easily triggered emotions within). We’ll then explore specific techniques and strategies to help clients begin to break down those defensive walls and become less fearful of displaying vulnerability and gaining access to primary emotions. Through case histories and discussion, you’ll gather insights into how this corrective emotional process works, step by step.

INTRODUCTORY OFFER:
Buy today and save £12 off the regular price.

Offer ends at midday 30 November 2016.

Advances in the Understanding and Management of ADHD with Dr Russell A. Barkley

ADHD is among the most common childhood and adolescent behavioural disorders, affecting up to 5-7 percent of the school-age population and 4-5 percent of adults. Research has shown that ADHD is a disorder of the brain's executive functions that provide for human self-regulation across time to anticipate future events. The disorder impairs all major life activities studied to date, including family, peer, community, educational, occupational, sexual, social, driving, and financial domains. It is therefore imperative that mental health, medical, and educational professionals understand the executive functions, how they develop, how ADHD interferes with that development, and how best to address those executive and self-regulatory deficits produced by ADHD.

Today’s instalment is a recording of an excellent seminar by a world-renowned expert in the field – Dr Russell A. Barkley:

ADHD FROM A TO Z: ADVANCES IN THE UNDERSTANDING AND MANAGEMENT OF ADHD IN CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS  6 CPD HOURS
http://www.psychotherapydvds.com/ADHD-from-A-to-Z-Advances-in-the-Understanding-and-Management-of-ADHD-in-Children-and-Adolescents

This 4 DVD Set will provide a summary of the major advances over the past decade in the nature, diagnosis, life course, aetiologies, and management of ADHD in children and teens.
It also discusses the role of executive functioning and self-regulation in the disorder and what this means for management of ADHD.
Dr Barkley will discuss the advances in our scientific knowledge of ADHD and their exciting implications for optimizing the effective treatment of children and teens having ADHD.
He will also discuss the science-based treatments for the management of ADHD, its executive functioning deficits, and the impairments likely to arise from the disorder.

Panic Attacks on the Rise

Marie Claire magazine highlighted this week the disturbing fact that Panic Disorder –particularly amongst women – is on the rise.

“In the past five years, charity Anxiety UK has seen a 10 per cent increase in calls to its helpline and email support network, with one in ten people suffering from panic attacks and, of these, two thirds are women. Meanwhile, NHS figures show outpatient appointments for anxiety disorders, of which panic attacks are a common form, have increased five-fold since 2007, and hospital admissions increased by a third. Prescriptions for tranquilizers such as Xanax and Valium rose by 13 per cent in the past four years, and for antidepressants – often used to treat panic attacks – by 38 per cent.”

CBT for Panic Attacks is one of the longest established CBT treatment approaches. Developed over twenty five years ago, extensively researched and validated, it should represent an essential part of any good therapist's toolkit.

If you want to add this to yours or simply want to refresh your knowledge and skills come along to our

Book here: http://skillsdevelopment.co.uk/cbt_seminars.php?courseid=162

New - Working with Self-depreciation with Windy Dryden

We are very excited to present to you a brand new DVD featuring Professor Dryden demonstrating a live session with a real client:

WORKING WITH SELF-DEPRECIATION WITH WINDY DRYDEN – 2 CPD HOURS
http://www.psychotherapydvds.com/Working-with-Self-Depreciation

Self-depreciation (or self-deprecation) is a common problem for many. Strongly held negative beliefs about self and our relationship with others often leads sufferers to present themselves as lesser than others or attempt to be socially invisible. The net effect of this is to create a sense of “feeling bad” about oneself combined with feelings of unappreciation and frustration.

This DVD demonstrates bestselling author and therapist Professor Windy Dryden, using CBT with a client who suffers from these very problems. Observe how he expertly guides the client to understanding how his current life strategies compounds his problems, and then how he guides him to a constructive route to solving them.

The session starts, unfolds and finishes in front of the viewer. Prof. Dryden does not have any additional information about the client before he starts the session.

Also in this DVD, Consultant Clinical Psychologist Paul Grantham interviews Professor Windy Dryden on his perspective of helping clients struggling with problems relating to self-depreciation. Professor Dryden shares his views and ideas on the topic, mainly concentrating on the application of CBT and in particular Single Session Integrated CBT to work with this group of clients.

INTRODUCTORY OFFER:
For the next 24 hours save £8 off the regular price.
Offer expires 2 November at midday.

Enjoy your viewing.
