  2. 2. Victimized and traumatized patients who have Complex PTSD and a variety of co-occurring disorders including prolong and complicate grief and Borderline Personality Disorder, with a specific focus on ways to incorporate evidence-based Cognitive therapy interventions to address the emotional aftermath of anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, anger and moral injuries.
  3. 3. Patients who experience anger, manifest aggression, and accompanying violence toward self and others with a specific focus on treating victims of interpersonal domestic violence.
  4. 4. Patients with Traumatic Brain Injuries focusing on ways to conduct comprehensive cognitive rehabilitation interventions.


A case conceptualization Model that informs both assessment and treatment decision-making will be presented, as well as an enumeration of the core tasks of psychotherapy that contribute to lasting changes.

All attendees will receive a free copy of Dr. Meichenbaum’s recent book “Recovery Voices: Treatment Of Individuals With Addictive Disorders



Mindfulness and Heartfulness: Practices for Enhancing Well-Being
Amy Saltzman, MD

Mindfulness is paying attention here and now, with kindness and curiosity,so that we can choose our behavior. “Paying attention here and now” means doing our best to not dwell on the past, or worry or fantasize about the future; simply paying attention to what’s actually happening in this moment. And we pay attention “with kindness and curiosity.” Otherwise we are often incredibly hard on ourselves. We tend to see only where we’ve “made a mistake” or “screwed up.” Rather than judging and critiquing ourselves, with mindfulness we practice bringing an attitude of kindness and curiosity to ourselves and our experience. Finally, when we bring our kind and curious attention to our thoughts and feelings, to the sensations in our bodies, and to the people and circumstances in our lives, then we have all the information we need to “choose our behavior”—that is, respond in the moment to events in daily life.

This workshop is for anyone who wants to apply these skills in their lives, and to support their patients/ clients doing the same. Together we will engage in variety of practices that will support us, and those we serve, in freeing ourselves from the inner critic, befriending difficult emotions, responding (rather than reacting) to challenging circumstances, engaging in true self-care, and offering ourselves and others kindness and compassion. Research demonstrates that for clinicians these practices decrease compassion fatigue and burnout, and increase empathy and clinical efficacy. For patients/ clients the practices decrease stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, physical pain, resolve ineffective/ destructive habitual patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving, and increase physical, mental and emotional health, sense of purpose and meaning, and the ability to live with joy.

This workshop will benefit both those with no prior experience with mindfulness and heartfulness, and those with long term practices in the field.
