Promises Treatment Centers Hosts Continuing Education Event in West Los Angeles

Promises Treatment Centers Hosts Continuing Education Event in West Los Angeles (Vocus) March 17, 2010 -- On Wednesday, March 24th, Promises Treatment Centers will host a continuing education event for therapists at its West Los Angeles location. Jorid Nygard, MFT, will be offering a brief overview of the developmental stages couples go through, providing a better understanding of the power imbalances and stalemates that so often occur in relationship. She will also review therapeutic techniques that improve communication and encourage partners to explore internal vulnerabilities.

Cheryl Procaccini, LCSW, will be providing an experiential workshop called “Caring for the Soul: Sound, Music, and Meditation as a Path to Inner Peace.” Sound, meditation, and music have long been used to reduce stress, ease anxiety, improve concentration, manage pain, enhance positive emotions, and restore one’s sense of well-being. This workshop is designed for professionals, providing care for the caregiver and a healing environment for stress reduction and balancing one’s physical and emotional energy, which are important elements of addiction recovery.
