Pat Ogden’s Luncheon Address

 

Body Wisdom, Lost and Found

Today’s luncheon address featuring Pat Ogden, a clinical leader on the forefront of incorporating bodywork into therapy, was fabulous. Throughout her address, she used video demonstrations to reflect her insights about integrating mind/body into therapy, which made everything she was saying feel both so present and so vivid. She also had us “try on” different gestures and postures to see how they feel.

Meet the 2012 Symposium Visionaries

 

Over the last 35 years, one of the most noteworthy aspects of the Networker Symposium has been the depth and wisdom of the keynoters who address the conference. This year’s Symposium is no exception.

Opening the conference with a morning keynote on Friday is Andrew Weil, the world’s leading proponent of integrative medicine. andrew_weil-105He’ll be discussing the meaning of integrative mental health and how therapists can enrich their knowledge and understandings to help clients—and themselves—achieve optimal health. To learn more about integrative mental health, see the recent Networker article on his work here.

Next will be Scott Miller’s luncheon address on “Charting Your Path to Clinical Excellence,” a topic that’s been much discussed in the Networker community during this past year. He’ll share what research is showing us about how to achieve excellence, and how we can apply these understandings to gain mastery in the consulting room, as well as in our personal lives.

Mary Pipher has achieved national renown as the author of Reviving Ophelia, amary_pipher-105nd she will be inspiring attendees as the Saturday morning keynote speaker. Her subject—“Facing the Challenge of 21st-Century Activism” is a compelling presentation of her vision of  the many ways therapists can influence the world-at-large and why doing so can make us feel more joyous, connected, and empowered.

Pat Ogden will be Saturday’s luncheon address speaker and she’ll cover her transforming, trailblazing work that incorporating bodywork in psychotherapy.

Later that day, Jane Fonda will be speaking with Networker Editor jane_fondaRich Simon about her life, career, and beliefs about how to improve your life while growing older. Yes, that’s right… Jane Fonda will be at the Networker Symposium! You really won’t want to miss this conference and especially not this particular dinner event.

Finally, Sunday holds even more opportunities for discovery, as brain science pioneer Dan Siegel will be discussing whether our growing knowledge about brain science is making us wiser. If you’ve never heard Dan Siegel speak before—or even if you have—his presentations are always a treat.

NP0014, Diets, Session 4, Geneen Roth

 
Thank you for attending this fourth and final session of “Diets and Our Demons.” We hope you’ll come away from this course with a better understanding of the scientific research on diets and an understanding of the variety of viewpoints and skills about mental and physical health that therapists can bring into the consulting room.

During this session with Geneen Roth, who’s the author of eight bestselling books and a leader in looking at our relationship with eating, will delve into how our eating habits reflect our basic beliefs and attitudes about ourselves. She’ll cover why eating is inseparable from our core beliefs about life, the roots of our relationship with food, how to trust your body, and how to demystify weight loss.

After listening to the course, please take a few minutes to write on the Comment Board about what was most interesting to you during this session, and to reflect on the course in its entirety. What was most relevant to you in your professional and personal life? What questions remain for you?

If you have any technical questions, please feel free to contact support@psychotherapynetworker.org.Thank you again for your participation in this series, and for taking the time to share your thoughts.

NP0014, Diets, Session 3, Linda Bacon

 

Linda Bacon, researcher, professor, and author of Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight, will discuss the evidence illustrating that popular ideas regarding weight loss as equal to positive self-care can actually hinder a healthy lifestyle. She’ll cover the science that disputes conventional perspectives about health and weight, how working toward weight-loss goals can undermine a client’s ability to achieve positive, healthy habits, how to help clients understand that self-nourishment is more important than weight loss, and much more.

After listening to the session, please share on the Comment Board what you learned and any questions you may have. What was most interesting or relevant to you? We invite you to include your name and hometown with your comment, and to take a few minutes to read and respond to other participants’ comments.

NP0014, Diets, Session 1, Judith Matz

 
Welcome to “Diets and Our Demons,” a 4-week webcast series, which will cover a variety of perspectives about helping clients maintain mental and physical health.

In this first session with Judith Matz, the director of the Chicago Center for Overcoming Overeating, she will present some of the research that shows that dieting is actually counterproductive. Matz will discuss why the practices of attuned eating and weight acceptance can offer a more effective substitute to conventional dieting techniques.

After each webcast session, a Comment Board will be provided so that all of you can share reflections on what you’ve learned, or any questions you may have. We believe these forums create a sense of community of learning and help inspire each other. Please take a few moments to comment on what was most interesting or relevant to you, and we encourage you to include your name and hometown with your comments.

Thank you so much for your participation, and welcome to this relevant series. If you ever have any technical questions or issues, please feel free to email support@psychotherapynetworker.org anytime.

*Make sure to check out our January/February 2011 issue, which was also called “Diets and Our Demons.” This issue reported on research and case studies related to different ways of looking at dieting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If you’re interested, check out that issue here.

NP0013, Mindfulness, Session 1, Jack Kornfield

 
Welcome to the New Perspectives on Practice series, “Is Mindfulness Enough?” This series will explore the benefits and limitations of both psychotherapy and mindfulness as well as the integration of these two wisdom traditions. In the first session with leading Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield, he’ll discuss the erroneous belief that prayer and meditation is all that’s needed for personal transformation, talk about how to combine meditation with our daily activities, and describe how to bring the sacred into the practice of therapy.

Throughout the series, a Comment Board after each session will be available. The Comment Boards are a way for course participants to share thoughts and reflections about what was most interesting after each session and to ask questions of the presenters and of each other. We invite and encourage you to use these Comment Boards as a forum for thought and to continue the conversation sparked by each session. After listening to this first session, please just take a few minutes to engage in the Comment Board. What was most striking about this session? What questions do you have?

Thank you so much for your participation, and welcome to this relevant series. If you ever have any technical questions or issues, please feel free to email support@psychotherapynetworker.org anytime.
