Product Description

Title: Outside the Box of Limiting Beliefs: New Tools for Change

Presented by: Tracy Durkin, LCSW

5 DVS Credits: Mental Health

As professionals, we are trained to understand how certain beliefs are at the root of family violence and oppression. We are trained to be aware of intersectionality, of how beliefs and power structures related to age, gender, culture, class, race, and standards for physicality affect every aspect of the cases we work with. We seek, through support and education, to help our clients expand their beliefs to include empowerment and possibilities for themselves and their children. Awareness and understanding of collective belief systems is vital to our work, thus our commitment to ongoing diversity training and education.  This workshop will turn the focus away from the collective and more toward the inner, the private, the belief system of the individual.

Beliefs are powerful energetic structures that organize our thinking and behavior in ways that, for most of us, are not conscious. Beliefs are merely ideas, mental constructs; they are invisible and intangible, yet they exert tremendous control over our personal and interpersonal choices.  Core beliefs are usually fixed within us from a very young age, and they tend to create patterns, causing us to behave similarly from situation to situation, relationship to relationship, job to job, etc. When beliefs are positive, they create patterns that are healthy and life-affirming. When internal beliefs are negative, they create destructive and damaging patterns.

With a light-hearted and compassionate approach, you will learn to identify how false beliefs within a person (about themselves and about the world) are interfering with their life’s potential. By observing patterns in an interested, curious and accepting way, in order identify which beliefs are “driving the bus.”  You will learn a non-judgmental language to describe and interpret what you see.

You will acquire a few fundamental skills that might change the way you define problems and formulate solutions and might give you practical insights to share with your clients.

This is a fun, interactive, fast-moving workshop where you will have “Aha Moments” right away!

You will apply a new understanding to yourself, and by the end of the day, you will feel clear and confident about how to create change for yourself and others!
