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.
