Pre-conference elective courses designed to serve the needs of our community

Our Thursday elective options are designed to support both the providers new to our ALF InterFACE community and those who strive to continue to build on the foundation of their existing education.

Empowering providers and patients to utilize simple yet sophisticated techniques to overcome emotional challenges.

Understanding the benefit of augmenting delta wavelength therapies as a companion to optimizing neurologic function is an asset to the ALF Therapy clinical teams ability to provide quality, comprehensive patient care. 

The focus of the seminar  is on what would be most useful for practitioners/clinicians who are not specifically mental health practitioners and provide psychotherapeutic services but who do work with patients who experience emotional dysregulation, present with symptoms of panic/fear/etc, as well as those with trauma presentations. The goal is to support practitioners to develop the skills to provide interceptive Havening assistance for their patients as they work out a referral to a seasoned practitioner to continue the care.  To this end, the seminar will focus bringing together the Havening Techniques and brain science to teach practitioner applied interventions for patients, interventions for patients to use at home, as well as developing a personal program for self-healing and Brain Resilience. In addition to the practicum and application components, the seminar content will teach an accessible framework for understanding the impact of trauma on brain functioning
