II Free Teleseminar on EFT July 19

Friday, May 5th, 2017

II offers free teleseminars three times a year. Our next program will be on July 19th on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which is a clinically proven, modern therapy that draws on the latest research in neuroscience and attachment. It combines structured tools with an approach that is warm and interactive. EFT doesn’t just focus on the past. It gives couples concrete tools in the here and now so that they can connect with each other in new ways. It focuses on how couples fight, rather than what they fight about.
EFT is a structured process with nine steps. Clients receive a map of the work, so that they can know where we are, and where we are headed.

Join II with Isabel Diamond, MA for this FREE teleseminar!

Professional Resilience: Helping Doesn’t Have to Hurt

with Marette Monson, LCSW, MBA

This presentation draws from the Accelerated Recovery Program for Compassion Fatigue and the Certified Compassion Fatigue Specialist Training to provide an informative 30 minute presentation for professional helpers to prevent compassion fatigue and other work-related stress disorders. Created by Dr. Eric Gentry, the Accelerated Recovery Program for Compassion Fatigue has been published in several journals and is recognized as an effective treatment for the symptoms of compassion fatigue. The presentation is a potent alchemy of didactic information, experiential processing, and transformative techniques that assist the professional and/or volunteer care provider in resolving symptoms of compassion fatigue while, at once, developing resiliency skills and practices that prevent compassion fatigue symptoms in the future.  The keynote will serve to dispel common myths about compassion fatigue and its prevention and treatment and encourage and empower professional caregivers to seek care and support each other.

 

Marette Monson, LCSW, MBA is the only Certified Expert in Compassion Fatigue and Resiliency in the United States. She is a Certified Compassion Fatigue Educator from the Figley Institute. Marette has been personally mentored by J. Eric Gentry, Ph.D., LMHC is an internationally recognized leader in the study and treatment of compassion fatigue. In 1997, under Dr. Charles Figley’s direction, Gentry developed the Accelerated Recovery Program for Compassion Fatigue with Anna Baranowsky, Ph.D., and Kathleen Dunning.  The ARP has demonstrated powerful effectiveness for treating the symptoms of compassion fatigue. Marette is trained and certified in the techniques from the ARP and her agency and private practice in Holladay, UT, called the Center for Counseling Excellence, is one of the only compassion fatigue treatment centers in the United States. Marette just finished co-authoring a workbook on professional resilience, which will be available on Amazon in the Spring of 2017. She is a seasoned speaker who has presented at workshops and conferences around the United States. Her commitment to her mission to serve caregivers helping them to become evermore effective with minimal symptoms is evident throughout this keynote. You will be challenged, inspired, and uplifted by Marette Monson and this address.

E.S. Gallegos, II Imagery Person of the Year 2015

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

eligio-stephen-gallegos     

E.S. Gallegos, Phd is awarded Imagery International’s Imagery Person of  the year 2015.

He says,
 “The route of healing was known within each person. I as a therapist or as a psychologist did not need to know how to go about healing a person. In fact I couldn’t. I didn’t know how to heal a person.  But what I recognized was there is something within each one of us that does know where we are injured and how we need to go about our healing and they take care of that remarkably quickly. The real injury that has happened to us, usually in childhood, is that we’ve been taught to doubt our imaginations rather than working to recognize how our imagination fits into our other ways of knowing.”
