Do you regularly work with stress, anxiety or depression? We have recently become more aware of the incredible damage psychotropic medications can do to our long-term physical and mental health. Yet, sadly, there are still very few viable alternatives offered. This course focuses on an integrated method of mind-body-spirit psychotherapy that will support you and your clients to naturally overcome these challenging emotional issues. Feb 22-23, Sat & Sun, 9a.m.-4:30p.m. Kari Joys, MS. 12 CEUs

As health professionals, it’s crucial that we become catalysts for transformation by practicing, modeling and teaching emotional health. If we want to help others overcome their challenging issues, we need to walk our own talk, and live the truth we are promoting.

In this training, you’ll learn experientially how to practice and teach the 7 JoyIAm Skills for Success, including:

  • Identify, express and release your feelings and come back to inner peace
  • Change negative thoughts, beliefs and expectations
  • Love, support and empower yourself
  • Nurture loving, healthy relationships
  • Balance and heal your body, mind and spirit
  • Find a purpose in life and put it into practice
  • Utilize the power of your unconscious mind to create a happy, healthy life

Previous participants have found the JoyIAm Training to be life-changing for everyone involved. Whether you use it personally or for your professional practice, you’ll come away with skills and tools that you can use for a lifetime. When you practice these skills regularly, over time you’ll become stronger, more confident, more compassionate and better able to support your clients in accomplishing their goals. The best part of all is that when you work with Kari Joys, you’ll definitely laugh and have fun in the process. Although this seminar has been developed for health care practitioners, the general public may attend as well.

Upon completion of the course you will be able to:

Identify four negative impacts that psychotropic medications can have on your clients’ physical and psychological health

  • Describe the JoyIAm Emotional Healing Process and explain how regular practice can help your clients overcome anxiety and depression naturally
