25TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE

KEYNOTE: THE POWER OF COMPASSION TO CHANGE LIVES

Sorry… this video is no longer available.

Who we are today is often a manifestation of our past.

I will share my own story of growing up in poverty with an alcoholic father and a mentally impaired mother and a woman I met who gave me her time and insights that allowed me to change my future which has allowed me to be with you today.

Childhood trauma (ACEs) remains a significant contributor to who we become and a determinant of how we function in the present. This reality frequently results for many in poor mental and physical health. As a result, individuals have a poor self-image and are often highly critical of themselves leading to rumination and depression. This negative self-dialogue and lack of self-compassion results in an inability to see a positive future and makes one have less trust or belief in others.

Neuroscience and psychology have given us insight into ACEs and have allowed us to develop tools and interventions for dealing with these traumas and give individuals hope for a positive future.

Objectives:

1.Understand the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences.

2.Understand the nature of bonding and attachment.

3.Understand the neuroscience of compassion.

4.Understand how compassion can change lives.

After enjoying this Inspiring keynote address, you will be able to:

1) Explore ways to harness the power of both the brain and heart and explain how these body systems are connected; and,
2) Discuss how the brain-heart connection can be used to confront trauma and teach clients techniques which they can use to make this happen.
