Jewish Family Service Spotlight Event featuring author Liza Long

  • Congregation Shaarey Zedek (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Two days before Adam Lanza’s lethal rampage at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, Liza Long’s thirteen-year-old son was hospitalized at an acute mental health facility.  When she learned about the shooting, her first thought was, “What if my son does that someday?”  She then wrote a blog that went viral called, “I am Adam Lanza’s Mom.”

Drawing from her experience raising a son with bipolar disorder, and her extensive research leading to her book, “The Price of Silence: A Mom’s Perspective on Mental Illness,” Liza Long will share her journey and all that she has learned about how we address mental health, especially in children.  Speaking about how children are funneled through a system of education, mental health care, and juvenile detention that leads far too often to prison, Liza asks one central question:  If there is a poster child for cancer, why can’t there be one for mental illness.  The answer is stigma.  Liza is speaking in a voice that we cannot help but hear, and she won’t stop until something changes for children who have mental illness and their families.

Course Description:

The goal with our program for this event is to ensure that there is time for attendees to not only discuss the work around trauma that is being done in their sectors, but also to have time to create action plans with people who may have common problems and solutions. Together we created a program that would allow for attendees to do some learning with Dr. Laura Porter, and hear about her expertise and knowledge around the subject before they break out into their chosen sector: Education, Health, Government, Community Work, or Human Resources. Each breakout session is scheduled to be facilitated by a leader in that sector. The first session will focus on laying the groundwork and sharing out information to create a framework for the next session. After lunch, attendees will head to the second breakout session where the facilitators will help them to create action plans around how they want to see their sectors become more trauma-informed. After this, everyone will head back to the main room for a general assembly and a closing session, a Call to Action, led by Dr. Porter.

Social Work Practice in Rural Settings

  • U of M School of Social Work (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

This minicourse will examine practice theory and techniques relevant to social work in a rural setting. There are many definitions of what might be considered a rural community. For the purposes of this course, we will define communities as rural that have a population size of 2,500 to 20,000 with no major metropolitan area within hour of the community. Rural communities are often plagued with similar problems as vast metropolitan areas such as high poverty rates, inadequate housing, and inadequate access to health care. However, the scarcity of resources and professionals including medical providers, socioeconomic underdevelopment, and physical distance from services and lack of public transportation are frequently identified as compounding factors of living in a rural community. The impact of differences in the key diversity dimensions such as ability, age, class, color, culture, ethnicity, family structure, gender (including gender identity and gender expression) marital status, national origin, race, religion or spirituality, sex, and sexual orientation will be examined, within the context of practicing in a rural community. This course will also emphasize issues of ethical practice as defined by the social work code of ethics within a rural community.

Self-Care, the Wounded Healer, Resiliency, and Post-traumatic Growth

Course Description:

After briefly reviewing the rationale for social worker self-care (burnout, secondary trauma, compassion fatigue), the facilitator moves beyond this common knowledge to an exploration of self-care through the lens of the Wounded Healer. Because the study of burnout has often been said to have “burned out,” the facilitator focuses on self-care through the eyes of the Wounded Healer and examines how the experience of woundedness supports resiliency and post-traumatic growth.

Compassion Fatigue: Addressing Secondary Trauma in our Lives

Course Description:

Compassion fatigue differs from burnout in that burnout is caused by stress, while compassion fatigue is caused by caring. Other names for compassion fatigue include: vicarious traumatization; secondary trauma; and secondary PTSD. Compassion fatigue is the emotional residue that one carries as a result of working with clients exposed to trauma. Signs of compassion fatigue include a loss of energy, grief, anger, frustration, tardiness, depression, feelings of hopelessness, irritability, sleep problems, flashbacks, erosion of idealism, spiritual distress, and a shift in one’s world view. People vulnerable to compassion fatigue include mental health workers, addictions professionals, individuals with heavy trauma caseloads, counselors who deal with death and dying, individuals who work with traumatized children and sexual abuse survivors, medical professionals, fire fighters, and the clergy. Participants will leave this interactive, skill-building session with tools that will enable them to prevent and overcome compassion fatigue.

Animal Assisted Therapy Introduction Experiential

Course Description:

This workshop will start with an orientation webinar on Friday, June 7 from 2-5pm. The remainder of the course, which is primarily experiential, will meet at the instructor's farm in Dexter, Michigan on Saturday, June 8.

Course Description:

This course provides an experiential opportunity for students to explore animal-assisted therapeutic activities specifically designed to further a wide range of therapeutic goals with children, adolescents, families and adult clients. Like play therapy and art therapy, animal-assisted interventions, when integrated with evidence-based methods including (but not limited to) CBT and mindfulness, trauma recovery, family systems, cultural-relational and psychodynamic approaches, offer opportunities for people to work through a variety of issues and insecurities related to attachment, trauma, self-esteem and identity concerns, dysregulation, behavioral difficulties, mental illness, developmental disabilities, and family and relational problems. With selected animals as therapy partners, the therapeutic team helps people of all ages and positions foster new alliances, understand more fully existing problems and build practical life-skills to enhance confidence, effectiveness and joy. Presently, animal-assisted therapy is gaining acclaim in the field of mental health intervention and there is a growing body of evidence supporting its efficacy and standards in the field to be explored. This course introduces the theoretical foundations, standards, ethics, evidence, certifications, integration of methods, case examples, evaluation and practical skills involved in partnering with a variety of animals, in particular dogs, cats, goats, pigs, horses and chickens (yes, chickens!)- to provide engaging and effective interventions.

The Gut-Brain Connection: Facts, Fads, & Fallacies

Course Description:

The goal of the “Gut-Brain Health” seminar is to help Social Workers digest the complex scientific research in this field into a concise, user-friendly overview that will help them not only improve

their own gut-brain health, but also to be feel more confident when interacting with their patients/clients. After completing this course, Social Workers will be able to recognize the “red flags” of

pseudoscience, and become a “healthy skeptic”—one who carefully and critically evaluates each piece of advice, taking into account not only its source, but also the strength of the science behind it. Being either too gullible or cynical–believing everything or nothing we hear or read—can negatively affect our health. Henry David Thoreau once said: “To know that we know what we know, and that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge.” The aim of this course is to help Social Workers understand what is known (i.e., the established facts in the field of gut-brain health), to embrace the reality that there’s still much we don’t know (i.e., the gray areas), and to be able to recognize the fads and fallacies that are so widely disseminated in the lay press. In the end, this seminar will help Social Workers increase their personal wellness, as well as to become stronger role models, advocates and educators for their communities and work environments and, ultimately, for their patients/clients.

Understanding Substance Use Disorders & Facilitating Recovery

Course Description:

Social workers inevitably encounter substance use problems, whatever their area of practice. Traditional approaches to treating substance use disorders have tended to emphasize acute care models with time-limited doses of services delivered within treatment institutions. This course will focus on real-world models for implementing long term addiction recovery support. Some of these approaches emphasize treatment professionals, while others emphasize natural and community supports..

Traumatized Systems: Understanding Exploitation in the Brain, Body and Bureaucracy

Course Description:

Disconnected systems enable predators to exploit vulnerable people. Human Trafficking thrives on confusion. In the place of actionable data and mobilized resources, we have misaligned systems telling an inaccurate story. For victims and the professionals who support them, the healing process can feel overwhelming. Compounding the trauma, resources & treatment often lay behind systemic barriers. However, the tools to solve this problem already exist.

DBT for Pregnancy and Postpartum Training

  • University of Michigan Rachel Upjohn Depression Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Pregnancy and Postpartum is a 24-week group intervention for at-risk mothers created Maria Muzik MD, Katie Bresky, LMSW and Natalie Burns, LMSW and based on the works of Marsha Linehan, PhD.  

  • While DBT was originally developed for chronic suicidality and BPD, it is now adapted to treat multiple problem areas/diagnostic criteria (Substance Abuse, Eating Disorders, etc). It is a treatment approach that is well suited to honor biological, environmental, mood and interpersonal changes present in perinatal period/perinatal anxiety and depression.

  • The treatment incorporates several evidence-based therapies/intervention strategies including DBT, Interpersonal psychotherapy and Infant Parent Psychotherapy, behavioral change and acceptance strategies as well as validation.  This group model is a valuable tool in the perinatal period, allowing a place for normalization of symptoms, finding common ground among women and increasing peer support.

  •  This treatment is accessible, supportive, and sensitive to the unique needs of women during the perinatal period, teaching concrete therapeutic skills that target frequent areas of difficulty in the perinatal period. These include biological changes impacting mood regulation and frustration tolerance, changes in interpersonal relationships and support networks, as well as the challenge of attending to multiple needs of individual and family members. With a focus on emotion regulation and stress coping skills that promote mothers’ mental health, peer support, parenting competence, and parent-child relationships, the Perinatal DBT group ultimately seeks to prevent recurrence of mental health episodes in mothers and the inter-generational transmission of risk and trauma to their children.

  • The child team component provides a therapeutic play based group setting for infants toddlers and preschoolers where children engage in group socialization and therapeutic skill development.  The focus of the intervention is often centered on the development of the child’s ability to better communicate their emotions, cope with big feelings, and advance their social skills through supported interactions with peerrs/caregivers. The mission of the child team is to provide a secure space for exploration, participation, and skill development while in close proximity to their mothers. 

With the training we will provide participants the opportunity to explore ways to successfully build the curriculum into their practice, in both group and individual settings.  The training will focus on a basic overview of the program curriculum, psychoeducation, theory and in vivo practice.  It serves as a basic overview to DBT for Pregnancy and Postpartum and will be followed with an opportunity for more intensive training in coming months.

How to Avoid Trauma Overload: Moving away from shame, identifying triggers, and implementing self-care practices when working with clients experiencing trauma

Course Description:

From social media and the other news reports, our own organization, Social Workers are bombarded with messages about “burnout” and “self-care”, but do we really understand and practice these concepts? Especially if you are a mental health professional who works with clients experiencing severe trauma or a health care provider who experiences vicious trauma, you may feel that you are strong, capable and able to take on whatever your work throws at you! However, if not appropriately processed, stress, anxiety, and “burnout” can begin to overwhelm us and prevent us from being our authentic selves. Whether you have yet to experience symptoms or you are currently navigating some real issues, this workshop can help. You will learn how to recognize the unhealthy mental patterns and lifestyle habits that contribute to emotional numbness and exhaustion. You will also gain some new insights into using helpful coping skills that can work to prevent burnout or bring you back from the brink of anger, frustration and feelings of hopelessness. Come share your stories and learn about strategies for bringing a sense of wholeness and healing back with you to your practice; you no longer need to suffer alone.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

  • MSU Human Ecology Building (map)

DBT is a multi-modal treatment. Although skills training is a single mode, it is by far the most popular mode of DBT. Many programs begin implementing this mode in the beginning of learning how to develop their DBT program. Perfect for support staff, those working on the front lines, and for direct care clinicians, this training will primarily focus on the concepts and the foundation of the DBT skills while at the same time helping those clinicians experienced in DBT expand their knowledge in them. Participants can also expect to learn how to structure and format a skills training group, understand the roles and functions of facilitators, begin to teach the concepts of the DBT skills, identify and confront specific therapy-destroying behaviors found in group, lead meaningful mindfulness exercises, and assign specific homework assignments to help strengthen skill generalization.

Why words matter: navigating substance abuse, gender, sexuality and microaggressions

Course Description:

In today’s more politically divided climate, using appropriate words in session with your LGBTQ+ client is about being inclusive. To be inclusive is to be accepting and affirming of everything about someone as a person. This presentation will talk to the importance of using appropriate words, especially at the intersection of substance abuse, gender, sexuality and microaggressions. Most of your LGBTQ+ clients have experienced some form of trauma in their past, and by not honoring or supporting them for who they are, you may inadvertently retraumatize them in session. Using harmful or offensive language not only retraumatizes your LGBTQ+ clients, it may endanger them to participate in self-harm due to not receiving the appropriate and much needed help they deserve.

Social Work Practice in the Era of Fake News

  • U of M School of Social Work (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

The term "post-truth," the Oxford Dictionaries 2016 Word of the Year, reflects an era where everyone is a few clicks away from
