Playing the brain for a change!

Using Neuroscience to Stop Heartbreak with Emotional Pain Intervention (EPI®)

Three Day Training:Register Here

If you’re anything like me you see a number of clients in your practice in deep emotional pain and stuckness due to relational pain, post-romantic stress, or what’s referred to as Heartbreak.  Many psychotherapists I surveyed were deeply concerned that talking about client’s break-up was actually making them worse and more ‘love-stuck’.  Brain science offers us a new conceptualization of client problems, and memory reconsolidation research appears to explain how painful experiences, such as heartbreak can be updated in the brain accelerating resolution.

In this workshop, you’ll see how the latest neuroscience offers us a powerful new understanding of how to approach heartbreak and better yet, get it to stop.  Join in a three-day workshop to STOP Heartbreak with Emotional Pain Intervention (EPI®).

Training Overview

You will receive user-friendly overview of the benefits of using Neuroscience in psychotherapy to end HEARTBREAK featuring some evidence-based steps for promoting therapeutic alliance and brain change. The human brain, is an amazing organ, biologically wired for loving relationships, so romantic breakups can disrupt non-conscious motivational, attachment and social engagement systems causing intense emotional pain.

Enjoy the benefits of the Emotional Pain Intervention (EPI®) Brain-Changing Conversation guideline to support you knowing what to do in sessions while you facilitate neuroplasticity in both incremental (gradual) and transformational (rapid/lasting) ways.

You’ll obtain ways to reach the BOTTOM (Primitive/Emotional) and MIDDLE Brain areas in your work as a psychotherapist for more rapid, deeper, and lasting change in your clients.
Learn the key ingredients for sessions to eliminate the painful effects of HEARTBREAK using an integrative whole-brain-based approach. Get skilled in how to assess and reset non-conscious, primitive emotion-action systems with key interventions to promote optimal brain and nervous system functioning.

The EPI® STOP (Skills Training Over Pills) approach incorporates cognitive, psycho-sensory, experiential methods in sessions to promote the client self directing neuroplasticity and attaining healthy affect regulation ability.

This workshop will illuminate some of the “magic” of brain and life changing power therapies as it relates to clearing traumatic impressions, troubling emotions and trauma-based meanings and/or schemas. If you’re already using a transformational therapy such as Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Hypnotherapy, Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT), Brain Spotting, EMDR, or BAUD see how using the EPI® Brain Changing Conversation guide will improve your results by intentionally incorporating EPI® neuro-effective tools in psychotherapy.

This training is for Mental Health professionals only!

What Others Are Saying

I wanted to share a super training opportunity offered by Dr. Elizabeth Michas. I attended her previous workshop. The best part of the training was learning specific and effective interventions to use in my work. My practice has been revitalized due to the information learned in this training.

Felicia G., LMHC

She understands the RRT process and can explain how it can be so effective in light of recent findings in brain science. I had many ‘ah ha’ moments (so that’s why it works!) and feel the work I am doing with clients now is more effective and has much better outcomes. I have a better understanding of how to reach my clients and feel better about what I am able to do for/with clients. For me, Elizabeth’s training was instrumental in helping me make the shift from therapist to RRT practitioner. I traveled from Chicago to Florida and it was well worth it to me and my practice. I highly recommend Elizabeth’s training and if you are debating whether you need another training, I say attend this one.
