The Virtual Healing & Treating Trauma, Addictions & Mental Health Disorders Conference | Airing November 30, 2020

$135.00

3 Hours  |  Pending CEU Approval

Description

While most mental health approaches focus on addressing deficits and treating psychopathology, recent research has begun to shed light on the core principles for well-being, and how we can harness these skills towards lasting positive change. Combining neuroscience and positive psychology, participants in this workshop will learn about some of the key brain systems linked to well-being, and how to strengthen these through positive self-directed neuroplasticity. In addition, we will explore how specific skills such as compassion, gratitude, savouring, and self-compassion can improve our physical health, social connections, and overall functioning. We’ll also explore some of the common myths related to happiness, and discuss factors that help explain why happiness can feel so hard to come by.
