ABOUT ADMISSIONS & MARKETING SYMPOSIUM

DATE: April 2-3, 2020
LOCATION: Cumberland Heights River Road Campus

There is no greater purpose in our field than to be a resource to the clients and families we serve.

Southeast Admissions & Marketing SymposiumWhat started as a dinner conversation in 2012 about the need for quality training and collaboration for our admissions and marketing teams has developed into an event many treatment center owners and executives count on to provide ethics, leadership, mentorship and collaboration for their employees. This unique professional development opportunity is attended by seasoned professionals and newbies alike, and is packed with outstanding informational keynotes and breakout sessions applicable to all.

As a program executive, admissions or marketing representative, you have the potential to change lives and heal generations of families. Every call or contact with a family is an opportunity to help. That initial voice on the phone, be it a receptionist, intake person or community representative, may be the only person the caller ever reaches out to. Our responses and communication with that person are vital. Raising the professionalism in our field with education, ethics, shared experience and communication of knowledge is essential to achieve success.

Our hope is that no matter how long you have been in the field – be it 10 years or 10 days – there is something new for you to learn and share at the Admissions & Marketing Symposium. It is our vision and goal to transform our field into a shared mindset of abundance rather than be divided by scarcity or competition. To collaborate and connect professionals and families with the best treatment resource and opportunity for healing is the take-away message for the event. These opportunities may or may not always be within the centers we are representing, so by sharing information, we will be better able to make the best referral for each and every family and we will continue to grow and save lives. The character traits you nourish, skills you develop, and new information you learn will benefit both your own personal and professional development as well as the success of your center.

The Admissions & Marketing Symposium is the ideal place to find collaborators and mentors, colleagues with years of experience and attitudes of abundance. Join us in this sharing of knowledge and support the change we wish to see in this field.

Sunday Sermon: Finding Joy in What is to Come

Sunday Sermon: Finding Joy in What is to Come
Sunday Sermon: Finding Joy in What is to Come

As we mark the halfway point of the Christmas/advent season, we light a special pink candle to emphasis the spiritual principle of joy. In this message, we share about how difficult it is for us to feel joy as humans, because it means accepting our vulnerability in the possibility of loss. We also learn about joy that comes not from the moment, but from the anticipation of the moment. This talk closes with a reading of the promises of recovery from the AA Big Book, pages 83-84 as the anticipation of “what is to come” in our recovery.

Sunday Sermon Advent A Season for Anticipating Change
Advent Candles – Three Purple And One Pink as a Symbol of Faith with Bokeh Lights
On this first Sunday of the Christian season of Advent, we discuss the spiritual concept of hope, and talk about the hope that comes from inviting God/Higher Power into our lives. As God turned the world upside down with the birth of a baby on Christmas, our Higher Power has the ability to turn us inside out in our recovery, turning our despair into hope, our grief into joy, and our suffering into service.

Sunday Sermon: The Promise of Freedom, Part 3

Sunday Sermon: The Promise of Freedom, Part 3

October 20, 2019

The Promise of Freedom, Part 3: Once we take the first step in recovery, admitting our powerlessness over our addiction and the unmanageability of our lives, we ask for help and become free from the substance. What remains are the deeper conditions of our disease: resentments, fears, shame, and character defects. This third message on freedom takes a look at how the process of recovery, notably in steps 4-7, we gain freedom from these deeper issues that keep us bound to addiction.

Event Description:

Athletic Director Bill Battle Photo by Kent Gidley 04-03-13 Administration Mugs Athletic Director Bill Battle
Bill Battle, Athletic Director, Coach

After a successful four-year tenure as Director of Athletics at The University of Alabama, Bill Battle transitioned into his current role as Special Assistant to the President in 2017. While leading Alabama athletics, they produced three NCAA team national championships, 11 SEC team championships in five different sports, 17 NCAA individual/relay titles; 40 Academic All-Americans; and 21 NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship awardees.

Battle has had an impactful role in a career that spans more than 50 years and has encompassed some of the most historically compelling issues in collegiate athletics. From his days as a football player under head coach Paul W. “Bear” Bryant, on to assistant coaching stints at Oklahoma, Army and Tennessee, and becoming the nation’s youngest head football coach at UT.

At Tennessee, Battle played a key role in the rise of the African-American student-athlete in the South as he oversaw the development of UT’s first black quarterback. After his coaching days came to an end, he excelled in the business world by bringing the licensing of logos, slogans and other intellectual property to universities. That development brought about a major new revenue stream, enriching institutions across America.

The Experiential Healing Center offers a training program in SomExSM: A Somatic Experiential intervention to treat trauma and addiction. Certification is offered to counseling professionals, but the training is open to anyone wanting to enhance their practice with a deeper understanding of the neurophysiology of trauma, emotion, and self-regulation. Some of the professions we have worked with are massage therapists, speech therapists, alcohol and drug counselors, physicians and, of course, psychotherapists.  A professional can participate in one module, or attend all four modules and participate in supervision for certification.

Created by Kent Fisher and Michelle Rappaport, this modality uses an inter-relational model of somatic awareness and experiential techniques.  It is highly effective in working with chemical and process addictions, trauma, and attachment disorders, with an emphasis on emotional regulation. This four-module training is designed to give therapists the tools to transform the nervous system around issues of trauma.

Participants will:

  • Develop a working knowledge of the neurobiological aspects of trauma on the body.
  • Practice Emotional Regulation techniques.
  • Practice Experiential techniques to help uncouple the freeze in traumatized individuals.
  • Learn interventions for harmony and repair around core attachment wounds.

​Friday, October 4th thru Sunday, October 6th 2019

Cost: $595 each module

When Kent Fisher and Michelle Rappaport founded the Experiential Healing Center, they were extensively trained and highly skilled experiential therapists, using psychodrama and other action-oriented techniques to help clients access feelings and develop choice making about how they react and repair.

They certified in Somatic Transformation and began to incorporate the somatic techniques to help clients oscillate within their Optimal Arousal Zone in order to touch the edges of their activation and collapse. They began to see that the two schools of thought were not only mutually supportive, but also nearly seamless in their execution, and SomExSM was born.

We don’t wound alone and we certainly don’t heal alone. SomExSM–a Somatic Experiential intervention to treat trauma and addiction–honors this process, connecting the left-brain hemisphere of rationalization , reasoning and meaning-making to the right hemisphere’s capacity for social engagement and emotional processing.  It facilitates the repair of disorganized and insecure attachments of our childhood through somatic engagement and builds resiliency so clients are able to rediscover the Self that lives within all of us–playful, passionate, unashamed, unafraid, eager to learn and grow. At EHC we believe this is the difference between therapy and counseling. Therapy is a co-regulated process where therapist and client embark on a journey to recover and repair the Authentic Self.

SomExSM training will give you a deepened understanding of the neurobiological aspects of trauma, disordered attachment and addiction. It will equip you with a valuable set of skills to facilitate repair and regulation in your clients–allowing them to explore life in the Optimal Arousal Zone known to us here at the Experiential Healing Center as Emotional Harmony.
