We encourage all EBT clinicians and researchers to NOT MISS this exceptional program and community experience!

The Spirituality Intensive for the meeting includes the following sessions:

                                          EBT Annual Meeting Spirituality Intensive

  • The Core Concepts of Neuroscience that Explain Spirituality - Igor Mitrovic, MD.
  • EBT Kit 6: Spirituality, Tools, Concepts, Pitfalls and Rationale - Laurel Mellin, PhD  
  • What Happens in the Brain with Anger and How Anger Promotes Spiritual Aliveness - Arinn Testa, PsyD. 
  • Accessing Negative Emotions to Reach Deeper Spiritual Connection - Kathleen Wilson, PhD  
  • Managing Our Triggered Survival Circuits: Clinical Transference Strategies  – Denice Keepin, MA, LMHC
  • Deepening Your Sanctuary: Identifying “Personal Best Practices” – Cynthia Moore, MS, RD, CDE.
 

                      EBT Annual Meeting Experiential Workshops

  • Identify one Survival Circuit to progress in rewiring during the meeting, with the support of another provider in small dyadic sessions.  Use the latest techniques and deepen your understanding of how to effectively and lovingly rewire a Survival Circuit. Includes a skill update and a special Survival Circuit Psychodrama!
  • Move up your set point and enhance your spirituality by choosing one hurt to progress in healing during the two days. Participate in 3 EBT Cluster Groups to increase forgiveness. Learn the clinical use of the Empathy Cycle, the Anger Cycle, Love Bursts and Forgiveness Tools.  Learn more about how to train your participants in these essential tools.
  • Enjoy the natural beautity of the venue, including fabulous whole foods prepared in gourmet style and develop awareness of the way that natural pleasures enhance your spiritual connection and eudonic rewards, including vibrancy.

                      Update on Research and Clinical Practice 

  • Update your understanding of the mission of your EBT Practice, learning the latest statistics on stress symptoms, seeing how EBT addresses those systems and giving feedback and sharing ideas about the future of EBT. 
  • Refine your understanding of lifestyle changes in EBT, and the role of stress in clinical care, and what you can do about it for your own stress, and for potential markets for EBT to health professionals.
  • Enhance marketing of your practice. Create a video that reflects your clinical practice that you can use to promote your EBT Practice. Professional videographer will be on site throughout the conference.
  • Get one-on-one support to update your clinical practice with information technology so that you can improve your monitoring and support by using technology rather than needing to track your participants' progress by hand. Get a soft and warm transition into the new way of practicing health care services.

The annual meeting is open to fully certified EBT Providers, those who are considering pursuing certification and health professionals, educators and administrators who want to update their understanding and skills in the treatment of stress-related problems.

EBT is based on a new paradigm in health care that uses self-directed, targeted neuroplasticity to rewire the stress response, with the goal of improving outcomes for stress-related problems and decreasing the excessive use of medications for the treatment of a brain set point of stress.

             By the conclusion of the meeting, participants will be able to:

  • Describe three advances in neuroscience and spirituality their application to clinical practice.
  • Discuss the methods and results of two recent studies of EBT effectiveness in preventing or treating stress symptoms.
  • Practice four neuroscience-based self-regulatory tools that promote neural integration and the experience of the eudonic reward of spirituality.
  • Describe three scientific advances related to positive emotional plasticity that impact clinical practice.
  • Describe one change in your clinical practice that you will implement to better align your practice to prevent or treat stress symptoms.
What follows is a schedule of activities for the two-day annual meeting for clinicians and researchers. In addition, there will be time to enjoy the exquisite venue and natural beauty of Cavallo Point and the surrounding areas.  

Rooms have been reserved at Cavallo Point Lodge at significantly reduced rates. To make a reservation, call 888-651-2003, Cavallo Point Lodge Reservations and request the EBT Annual Meeting Rates. These rates are limited. Please make your reservation early.
