EFT is an important tool in the therapist’s toolbox to work with couples, families, and individuals. This is especially true for the problem gambler who has disconnected from feeling and is often estranged from their partner and family. As recovery occurs, they need support to self-regulate and process emotion, to repair significant relationships, and to re-attach safely.
The Responsible Gaming Association of New Mexico is pleased to offer the fifth webinar in our series on problem gambling. The February 19, 2021 session will focus on Mindfulness-Based Emotional Processing:(MBEP). This is a useful method for helping clients who struggle with gambling disorder learn to regulate and process emotions.
The event will be Friday, February 19, 2021 from 11am-12:30 pm MST.
Attendees will earn 1.5 gambling-specific CEUs. Attendance is free but registration is required. Space is limited.
The presenter will be Daniel Blackwood, LPCC, ICGSCII-BACC, and RTM Certified. He will will share this useful method of working with clients while diving deeper into the work with gambling disorder; balancing left-brain approaches with the right brain, a bottom up, more e-bodied and integrated approach, utilizing Mindfulness-Based Emotional Processing (MBEP).
MBEP, developed by Robert Weisz ,PhD, is a mindful, body-centered approach to activating intrinsic emotional processing in the brain. The processing is activated and maintained by the client’s and the therapist’s mindful, felt sense attention, upon the client’s somatic experience. The client’s emotional processing is enabled, focused, and supported through the attuned relational connection between the therapist and the client.
MBEP is a practical, useful method for initiating and promoting essential emotional regulation and processing. It can easily be incorporated into any therapeutic modality.
