Summary:​​Did you know that distractions alone downregulate the amygdala? They are a powerful and integral part of the Havening Techniques toolkit. Distractions are both art and science, and can be used elegantly for many purposes.

In this workshop you will learn how distractions engage different aspects of cognition and working memory and dive deeper into the opportunities for harnessing neuroscience in your Distractions work. You will explore how to use distractions intentionally to move your clients’ autonomic nervous systems towards greater regulation and their somatic patterns towards relaxation and ease.

Join us and learn how to use distractions to:

  • ​build relational safety and enhance rapport;
  • downregulate an overactive nervous system or upregulate a depressed one;
  • target sticky sensory elements of an EMLI;
  • and more!

This is an experiential workshop with opportunities to practice different uses and types of distractions and to open your mind to further thinking about them. Join Certified Havening Techniques Trainers Dr. Kate Truitt and Erika Neil, LCSW for a fun and engaging workshop on the nuanced and fascinating world of distractions!

Note: Completion of the Havening Techniques Certification Training is a requirement to attend this seminar.
