LACPA’s Child and Adolescent SIG welcomes Cat Tweedie, PhD and Jeff Lieberman, MS on Thursday, Feb 15, 2023, 12:00-1:00pm PST

Topic: Immersive group-based methodology for accelerating development and addressing root causes of anxiety, depression, and loneliness in young adults

Presenters: Cat Tweedie, PhD and Jeff Lieberman, MS 

This presentation explores the methodology of a group-based intervention that rapidly clarifies their sense of themselves, what they want in life and how they want to be with others. This 30-day immersive program uses playful experimentation and authentic connection to invite gentle attention to the numb, frozen, or banished aspects of our human experience. The curriculum combines group-based emotional and relational practices, attention training, yoga, embodiment, cooking, and creative expression and is supported by a team of facilitators and therapists. The immersive program is followed by a 9-month remote integration program. We look forward to discussing results from our data studies designed with Aneel Chima of the Stanford Flourishing Project .

Co-founders of Sleepawake Camp, Jeff Lieberman and Cat Tweedie combine their MIT science backgrounds with deep explorations of self to offer young people what we wish we had: mentorship in the art of being a human.

Jeff Lieberman spent ten years at MIT earning degrees in math, physics, mechanical engineering and robotics. He has turned his attention to the most beautiful puzzle: what are the most direct pathways to deep human flourishing? Jeff creates elegant solutions to tough problems — he is an artist, building sculptures that exploit the limits of human perception. He hosted ’Time Warp’ on the Discovery Channel to share these wonders. See more at http://bea.st.
