I’m looking forward to seeing some of you this weekend in Palm Springs, California at my new workshop, with my new workshop for The Conferenceworks: Breakthroughs in Healing Trauma: Success Through Guided Imagery and the New Therapies.

At this 9-C.E.U. weekend, I talk about what actually helps trauma survivors and what doesn’t, and I demonstrate techniques as well as report on the latest research findings. We actually now know a lot about how to help people with PTSD and acute stress reactions, but the info is so new that a lot of clinicians and lay people just haven’t been able to catch up on it yet. The fact is, traumatic stress serves up a nasty and persistent set of symptoms, that have been fairly impervious to traditional "talk" therapy. This weekend will bring people up to speed, using the findings reported in my new book, Invisible Heroes. These are very exciting times and this information needs to be shared. I’m also offering some additional information about the intensely intuitive states that traumatic events generate - one of the few side-benefits of an extremely distressing cluster of symptoms!

This workshop is for the general public and for clinicians and early responders alike - anyone affected by a traumatic event (which could be anything from Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters, a car wreck, ICU stay, life-threatening diagnosis, fire, traumatic labor & delivery, assault, rape, domestic violence, grievous loss, combat, terror attack, childhood illness, and so on). We welcome all trauma survivors, and the therapists, counselors, docs, nurses, early responders, uniformed officers, EMT workers, teachers, journalists and concerned family members looking for a way to help.

I’ll also be offering this material at Cape Cod, (Oct 29-30) and Albuquerque (Nov 12-13). For more information, call 888-517-7089 or for more contact info on The Conference Works! click on http://www.conferenceworks.com.

If you have time, you might want to check out our newly posted Back-to-School Pack for teens, to help engender confidence, reduce stress and focus energy and motivation toward success and mastery. BR’s Self-Confidence and Peak Performance imagery can be used for either academic, social or sports success; ditto for Martha Howard’s fabulous Keys to Your Highest Potential hypnosis and imagery CD; and the invigorating aromatherapy candle adds a marvelously scented dimension to the whole immersive process.

OK, take care and be well!
