    Moving Through and Beyond Trauma

    January 14, 2019  9:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.



    Dear Colleagues, 


    The Health Alliance of Northern California (HANC) and Shasta Health Assessment and Redesign Collaborative (SHARC) are pleased to invite you to a community workshop on moving through and beyond trauma. In the wake of the Carr and Camp Fires, we are bringing the nationally recognized The Center for Mind Body Medicine to Redding for an interactive workshop open to all. Participants will learn and practice evidence-based tools for addressing personal stress and trauma.  These skills are valuable for anyone, but will be particularly helpful for those working with fire survivors and/or those that have experienced a traumatic event. We have seen that many of our community caregivers are approaching burnout while trying to juggle their regular duties and additional fire-related tasks. This half-day workshop is a valuable opportunity to support our caregivers in their important roles. Leadership staff is also encouraged to attend to gain a better understanding of how the mind/body approach might be used to heal and empower staff and clients. 


              For an introductory video about the Center for Mind Body Medicine community training program, please click here:


    Click here for a brief video summarizing the participant experience at the CMBM community workshop recently held in Sonoma County.


    Please see the attached flier for further details. The registration fee is $25 and includes lunch. Online ticketing is available here:


    In an effort to allow participation from a diverse audience, we are limiting registration to 5 people per organization. You are encouraged to register early, as we anticipate the event will sell out. Please feel free to share this invitation with colleagues that may be interested in attending.  While we particularly encourage those in helping professions to participate, there is truly no "wrong" person to attend. The skills and techniques are applicable to any human that has experienced stress. 


    Please forward any questions about this training to Amy Cavalleri.


    About the Center for Mind Body Medicine: 

    The Center for Mind-Body Medicine (CMBM) was founded in 1991 by psychiatrist James S. Gordon, M.D. In the years since, CMBM has become a worldwide leader in making self-care, group support, and community-building central to all healthcare, the training of health professionals, and the education of children. CMBM has focused on providing innovative solutions to some of the world’s most intractable and complex psychological and physical problems. Dr. Gordon, and CMBM’s 130 faculty have developed programs for population-wide trauma healing in the Balkans, the Middle East, and post-earthquake Haiti, with New York City firefighters post 9/11, in post-Katrina New Orleans, on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, in post-Harvey Houston, with war traumatized U.S. veterans, and recently the Sonoma County community following the wildfires in 2018.

    Addressing Addiction: Fostering Attachment with (EFT) Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy – Sacramento-Davis


    March 29 & 30, 2019


    The Sacramento EFT Center Presents:



    with Michael Barnett, EFT Trainer


    Drs. Nancy and Paul Aikin, Creators of HMT®/LMG, are EFT Certified Trainers, Supervisors & Therapists and Directors of the Sacramento-Davis EFT Center.


    Description of workshop:

    Psychotherapy with couples is both multi-layered and complex, often challenging the most skilled of therapists. In this fast-paced, technology-driven era that we live in, where true connection is often at a premium, substance use has escalated to epidemic proportions. It is not uncommon for couple’s therapists to be confronted with the additional challenge of contending with a pernicious “third-party” that lurks within the shadows of distressed relationships: Addiction. Although we have the superb modality, EFT, to help couples find their way to genuine, loving communion with one another, addictions present very significant obstacles to effectively working with couples that seek our services. In this two-day experiential training, we will explore specific, and necessary ways to tailor EFT skills and interventions in order to better address the impact that addiction has on the couple therapy process.

    This interactive workshop will create a safe environment together to use role-plays, video clip demonstrations, and didactic material for clinical discussion and personal exploration.


    *  An overview of addictive processes; physical, relational, and emotional

    *  How to understand addiction through the attachment lens

    *  How addiction impacts the system: Ways to place addictive behaviors into the negative        cycle

    *  The impact of addiction on emotional fluency and process

    *  Leveraging attachment processes to break through addictive denial

    *  The high prevalence of attachment injuries and other relational trauma where addiction        is present
