Recap of October 2022 Conference
We enjoyed a full day of training at our annual CCPC conference from Carolyn Leaf, PhD, on ‘Cleaning up your Mental Mess.” Attendees gained an overview of neuroscientific strategies to manage thoughts to help reduce anxiety and depression. Dr. Leaf discussed mind-management – how the science can help us transition from being aware of toxic thoughts, to catching and managing them in their early stages. It was a great time of networking and discussion.
