    The Therapeutic Aha with Courtney Armstrong

    in Spirituality

     


    Courtney Armstrong’s The Therapeutic “Aha!” explores the thrilling and rare moment when a client reaches an elusive realization, allowing them to make meaningful change. In 10 straightforward strategies, this practical book demonstrates how to shake things up in therapy when a client is stuck or stalled to jumpstart progress. Readers will learn how to spark the “emotional brain”—the part of the brain that houses automatic, unconscious patterns—and create new neural pathways that engage and advance the healing process.


    Divided into three parts—(1) Awakening a Session, (2) Healing Emotional Wounds, and (3) Activating Experiential Change—the book walks readers through specific techniques for harnessing the emotional brain and re-patterning its routine. Elegant therapeutic insights and coping strategies only go so far; until we intervene with something our emotional brain can understand—a compelling felt experience—old, established neural patterns will persist. The brain-based strategies Armstrong presents include how to enliven the therapeutic alliance; elicit exciting goals; identify the root of an emotional conflict; reverse trauma with memory reconsolidation; invoke inspirational imagery; and use stories, humor, music, poetry, and even mindfulness to induce change.

    Helping Parents Fund Therapeutic Boarding Schools

    in Family

    Therapeutic Boarding Schools are expensive, so how do parents afford them?  Scott Leshin, Founder and President of SJ Personal Healthcare Advocates, joined Lon February 27, 2015 to explain how his business was founded to help parents handle what might at first seem overwhelming.  Working on a contingency basis, Scott explained there are a lot of potential resources for parents such as insurance and school district financing through the Individual Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  The best way for parents to access these resources are to work with a professional who knows the system and how to help parents work through the health insurance and education bureaucracies to ensure claims are paid in a timely and accurate manner.

    Ben Hancock-An Etsy Store at CooperRiis, a Therapeutic Community

    in Youth

    Ben Hancock, a Community/Service Worker at CooperRiis-NC joined Lon Woodbury on Dec. 31, 2014 to explain how the program has developed an ETSY store to help their residents.  CooperRiis is a therapeutic community for young adults with mental challenges.  Part of their therapeutic experiences is for some of them to process goat’s milk to make soaps and lotions, learning some work ethic.  This is addition to counseling, therapy and the program’s structure to help them learn how to overcome or live with their mental challenges. All the residents have work to do, and some process the soaps and lotions for sale.  In the past they have sold their products at the local stores.  To expand their reach, they have taken an ancient craftsman art and joined it to modern technology by making their products available on etsy.com, an online market for arts and crafts. Ben was enthusiastic about the results in the first month, sales being significantly more than what they had been receiving through local outlets.  Ben explained the money is used to help with scholarships.
