Disrupting Rumination:  Changing the Cognitions that Underlie Depression and Anxiety


DATE(S):
October 2, 2020
TIME:
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
LOCATION:
LIVE Webinar


BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
Overactive brain circuitry can trap people in cycles of ruminative thinking, and that neurobiologically based rumination links anxiety and depression—two disorders that concur in about 50% of our 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 live webinar, we’ll examine why clients lock into depressive patterns that increase their unhappiness, and we will explore the four subtle reasons they hold 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 the rumination and stuck behaviors, eliminating these patterns and replacing 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.
