Group Supervision with CEU’s #3: Bridging the Brain and Body

Building Clinical Skills for Today and Beyond

The Group Supervision is limited to 10 participants and is a closed group process for the duration of the 4 weekly sessions.

This group supervision experience allows clinicians to explore aspects critical in providing mental health care in the private sector taking into account the research and practices that bridge the brain and body in regulating the nervous system. In the first hour of each session, the focus will be on a particular topic related to connecting neuroscience with techniques to ease client distress. These will include Polyvagal Theory, The Negativity Bias, The Window of Tolerance, and Somatic Therapies. In each of these presentations clinicians will be offered techniques they can easily work into their existing approach to treating clients. This group is supervised by clinicians who are trained and experienced in working with children, teens, young adults, adults, and families. In the second hour of each session, the focus will be on case reviews, with each participant having an opportunity to share and obtain feedback from the group. The group will meet for 2 hours each week for 4 weeks.

  1. The Polyvagal Theory
  2. The Window of Tolerance
  3. Somatic Therapies
  4. The Negativity Bias

First Hour of Session: We will examine the topic assigned for each session in depth, including relevant research, examples in clinical practice, along with providing opportunity for group discussion and case application. We are focusing on those practices which enhance the brain body connection for clinical out-patient treatment in regulating the nervous system.

Second Hour of Session: Each clinician will have an opportunity to share a specific case they have brought for review that has potential relevance to the topic of the brain body connection (including stress, trauma, and mood disorders). Each participant will obtain valuable feedback on specific aspects of their work, and will have an opportunity to offer clinical support to other counselors.

Learning objectives of this course

  1. Identify the vagus nerve and its importance as a communicator between the brain and body.
  2. Explain why it is important that clients expand their window of tolerance and simple activities that help with expansion.
  3. Describe the Negativity Bias and demonstrate how addressing this effectively can help their clients shift to a more positive outlook.
  4. Apply and utilize at least 4 exercises/activities that promote the brain and body connection.
