Uncovering Happiness

The Neuroscience and Psychology of Personal Transformation
10 CE Hours Available

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

10 CE Hours Available

The seeds of happiness are always within you. Join the author of Uncovering Happiness and The Now Effect, clinical psychologist Elisha Goldstein, for a transformative experience of how to help your patients/clients and create lasting personal transformation and grow happier—naturally and sustainably.

Learn the step-by-step principles and practices that nurture the brain’s natural antidepressants, especially the practice of mindfulness, one of the most important elements. An increasing body of research shows that mindfulness can help our patients/clients heal stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, and chronic pain.

Though mindfulness is the foundation for Elisha’s work, you also learn the science behind other contributors and critical components of happiness to help you thrive and live a fulfilled life.

In this experiential workshop, you will learn:

  • Demonstrate the depressive loop and the unhealthy habits that continue to fuel it for patients/clients/students
  • Conduct mindfulness practices that help patients/clients turn the volume down on rumination and open up spaces for greater choice and perspective
  • Summarize the therapeutic benefits of mindfulness, self-compassion, compassion and play to patients/clients.
  • Practice exercises to elicit the natural anti-depressant effects for self-compassion, compassion and play to foster healing when sliding into a depressive relapse.
  • Identify precautions, contraindications, or modifications needed for applying mindfulness and self-compassion when depressed
  • Explain the latest research regarding Mindfulness, self-compassion, compassion, play and mastery in respect to Depression.

With a unique ability to make complex concepts simple, Elisha will help you to expand your patient’s/client’s capacity to nurture a stronger and healthier brain and open up to joy, love, self-compassion, and a greater sense of happiness.
