Trauma-Informed Approaches to Working with Voice Hearers 

Date: June 13, 2019
Time: 12:30—4:30pm
Location: 100 Roscommon Drive, Suite 203, Middletown, CT
Presenter: Caroline Mazel-Carlton, B.A., C.P.S., Director of Training, Western Massachusetts Recovery Learning Center 
Cost: $55.00

An estimated 8 million Americans will hear voices at some point during their adult lives (rates are higher in children). Most of them are trauma survivors. However, few trauma trainings offer concrete, culturally competent strategies for supporting people to navigate the voice-hearing experience. This workshop will provide demonstrations of Voice Mapping, Voice Dialogue, and other techniques that acknowledge the context of voices and can create a greater sense of empowerment for voice hearers.

Continuing Education: This training has been approved for 4 Continuing Education Credit Hours by NASW/CT. To register, contact Nikita Joslyn at 860-343-5500, ext. 2110.
ENERGETIC BODY TYPES: WHAT THEY REVEAL ABOUT YOUR CLIENTS

Friday, June 28, 2019
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Blue Heron Healing, 43 Amato Circle, Wethersfield, CT
The Energetic Body Types are: Creator, Lover, Supporter, Achiever and Challenger. Like energetic armor, each type reflects a way of holding energy in the body that defends against pain. Adopted in childhood, these defensive patterns prevent our clients from moving through life with flow, vitality and grace.

For each body type you’ll discover: how they engage in life, their main issues, their hidden agendas, how they feel, how they make others feel, how they speak, their human challenge, their spiritual life task, early imprinting, the energy centers most affected, their shadow emotions, how their overall energy feels; what physical, emotional, and psychological difficulties each body type is prone to, and the gifts and talents of each one. You’ll learn short and long-term healing practices for each.

The training goal is to begin to recognize the body types -- to ascertain what psycho/emotional/spiritual dynamics are at play for your clients. This is fascinating information you can put to immediate use in your practice.

To register please contact: Julie Montinieri, Energy Medicine Practitioner, at julie.montinieri@gmail.com or 860-614-0747. Visit http://blueheronhealing.blogspot.com/p/nasw-approved-cecs.html  for further information. $159 includes catered lunch.

This program is NASW/CT approved for 6 CECs.
