Prolonged Exposure Therapy Workshop with Dr. Edna Foa

“Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) Workshop with Dr. Edna Foa”

In May 2005, the Tree Group held a workshop by Dr. Edna Foa, a worldly renowned psychotherapist in treating PTSD, for professionals in the field of psychology and psychiatry. 

  

Dr. Foa is a clinical psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania in the U.S. and works as a director for Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety. Not only is she an expert in PTSD, Dr. Foa is also known for her work in psychopathology and anxiety treatments. She is the chairman of the committee for researching DSM-IV of PTSD. Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) developed by Dr. Foa has shown to result in the most therapeutic effects for individuals with trauma from sexual abuse, wars and human rights violations. 

  
In order to provide training for PE and supervision in an ethical manner, the Tree Group invited Dr. Foa to Seoul and held a 4-day intensive workshop. 

  

Dr. Cho translated and published Dr. Foa’s books, PE Manual and Workbook, and continues to research treatments to support victims and survivors of traumatic events and train juniors.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy Workshop with Marsha Linehan

“Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Workshop with Marsha Linehan”

The DBT Center of Korea invited Dr. Marsha Linehan who is one of the most influential authorities in the field of psychology and psychological treatment. Hundreds of professionals or students in areas such as psychology, medicine, social services, and nursing gathered at the Coex Center in Seoul to participate in her DBT workshop. The event was held for three consecutive days from October 2nd to October 4th, 2008.

 

Dr. Marsha Linehan made vigorous attempts to develop a treatment for those with borderline personality disorder and showed chronic suicidal crisis. 

It was during the early 1990s when she started to find empirical evidence that Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) decreases symptoms of borderline personality disorder. DBT is one of the few psychological treatments that have been proved to be effective by numerous research. Such empirical evidence is thoroughly studied and confirmed in hundreds of her journals published in SCI. 

 

The core of Dr. Marsha Linehan’s effort in developing an evidence-based treatment is her care and compassion for people and those with personality disorders. This workshop was a great opportunity for many to see her devotion, sacrifice, and compassion in developing an evidence-based treatment to reduce symptoms of unbearable emotional pain in borderline personality disorder, understand how DBT enhances quality of lives for many, and acknowledge why DBT has been praised for years by professionals all over the world. 

 

The workshop was a specially designed event to have Dr. Marsha Linehan lecture for three days and ask questions on the spot. To have her directly provide training on DBT is very rare considering her reputation and tight schedule and all the Tree Group staff and participants of the workshop showed high satisfaction and were able to wrap up the event in a successful manner.

2021 Winter Term and Seasonal Program

Happy New Year! We sincerely wish you a year fully loaded with happiness and good health.

Starting this year, the Tree Group’s School of Life – Active Learning Program is implementing the Term System instead of the Semester System in order to pursue a more thorough psycho-educational and clinical program. One year is divided into 4 terms – Winter Term (December – March), Spring Term (March – June), Summer Term (June – September), and Fall Term (September – December). At the end of each term, a feedback session will be held in which the clinicians will share the children’s clinical and psycho-educational progress with their parents and establish future treatment plan to ensure a more systematic and scientific treatment.

Each term is designated with a seasonal theme. Held in conjunction with our branch, Retreat Soom in Aya, specific theme and color are selected for each season, and we plan to host activities and programs that help our clients understand its meaning mindfully.

  • December – February: Season of White Serenity
  • March – May: Season of Green Awakening
  • June – August: Season of Violet Exuberance
  • September – November: Season of Calm Colors
  • December: Season of Being Together

We will keep you posted on various seasonal events held at the Tree Group, so please look out for our future updates 🙂

2020 Chuseok Break

Hello, this is the Tree Group.

The unprecedentedly long raining season finally came to an end, and it has already been a month since fall officially started. Although many aspects of our lives are restricted due to COVID-19, we sincerely wish that you had an enjoyable September.

With Chuseok and the National Foundation Day coming up, the School of Life Active Learning Program is having a week-long break from 9/29 to 10/3. “Chuseok” falls on August 15th according to the lunar calendar, and it symbolizes a central day of summer and a night with the best moonlight. During this festive time of the year, we wish everyone would have the best holiday possible with your loved ones.

There are many meaningful events in October. October 9th is the Hangeul Day. Hangeul, the Korean alphabet, is the only language in the world that the name of the creator and the proclamation date are known. “Han” means “the Korean people” and “big.” Hangeul is Korea’s own language that King Sejong made with a big heart, wishing for a world where no one is disadvantaged for not knowing the writing system. Being thankful and proud of Hangeul, School of Life Active Learning Program is taking a break on October 9th.


According to the government’s guidelines, we have been holding our sessions online to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Until further notice, we plan to continue with this system even after the Chuseok Break to ensure everyone’s safety. Thank you for understanding and cooperating. Happy Chuseok!
