1.5 EMDRIA Credits
Resilience is an embodied state of mindful, compassionate attention to the needs of self and others. It creates an interpersonal field of open mind and heart, in which information and intuition flow organically, cultivating excellence in practice. Empathy, the forerunner to compassion, can be either positive (caring); or negative (merging). The former activates the reward circuits of the brain. The latter activates pain circuits, setting the stage for compassion fatigue. In this workshop, participants will learn skills, both for themselves and clients, that promote positive empathy, mindfulness, and the installation of positive experience, that lead to increased resilience and happiness.
