Workshop: Integration as a Path to wellness
The stress and inevitable challenges of daily life can often lead to compartmentalization, which is the process of separating parts of the self from experience in order to make it through difficult times. While often useful in the short-term, this practice can break down the coherent integration of our thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and relationships leaving in its wake a sense of feeling frustrated, fragmented, frazzled, and alone.
Through an exploration of the emerging field of Interpersonal Neurobiology, Dr. Christopher Harrison will provide methods and practices to assist in reclaiming the natural integration of thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and relationships, thus providing a blueprint for optimal mental health and well-being. Please join Dr. Harrison for an exciting exploration of Integration as a Path to Wellness.
Harrison, Ph.D. is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in private practice and Clinical Director at The Sequoia Center, an alcohol and drug addiction treatment facility in Redwood City, CA. Dr. Harrison previously worked at the Stanford University School of Medicine where he helped to develop and deliver a smoking cessation protocol for a National Cancer Institute funded study on nicotine dependence in adolescents.
