Zines are self-published magazines that can help improve mental health. Participants will have the opportunity to create their own zine. Altered books can be used as therapeutic journals. We will also discuss how to integrate storytelling with psychotherapy to increase rapport in therapy, client hope, and optimism. Finally, most superheroes including Superman, Jessica Jones, Dare Devil, and Luke Cage while super, have flaws, challenges, and vulnerabilities. We will discuss how to integrate their lessons into psychotherapy to help clients accept themselves and become their own superhero.

Disrupting Rumination:  Changing the Cognitions that Underlie Depression and Anxiety


DATE(S):
April 30, 2020
TIME:
8:45 AM - 4:15 PM
LOCATION:
Oakton Community College
1600 E. Golf Road
DesPlaines, IL


BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
Overactive brain circuitry can trap people in cycles of ruminative thinking. Neurobiologically based rumination links anxiety and depression—two disorders that concur in about 50 percent of clients. Whether clients experience depressive themes of worthlessness and inadequacy, or the anxious full-of-dread cognitions, repetitive patterns of negative thoughts keep people locked into distress. Letting go isn’t easy. In this workshop, we’ll examine why clients lock into depressive patterns that increase their unhappiness, and explore the four subtle reasons for holding on to worry. Understanding these underlying rationales helps clients increase both their confidence and ability to change their mental habits. Pragmatic, achievable solutions will be examined to disrupt rumination and stuck behaviors, and to eliminate these patterns and replace them with attitudes of calmness and competency. After utilizing experiential and interactive methods, participants will be able to offer clients effective tools to end rumination, alter stuck behaviors, and move into recovery from depression and anxiety.
