Presenter: Margaret Wehrenberg, PsyD
Overactive brain circuitry can trap people in cycles of rumination that keep them anxious and depressed. Letting go of ruminating worries, or banishing persistent negative thoughts like I’m not good enough or I’m worthless isn’t easy for our clients. And when those repetitive thoughts won’t shift, therapists themselves can begin to feel stuck. In this workshop, we’ll examine why clients lock in to depressive thought patterns and explore the four subtle reasons they hold on to worry. And we’ll explore pragmatic, achievable solutions for eliminating these patterns and replacing them with attitudes of calmness and competency.
