Why Microaggressions Matter in Child Welfare

  • Andrews University Chan Shun Hall-Whirlpool (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Microaggressions occur when someone experiences either intentional or unintentional slights that send negative messages related to the group(s) he/she belongs to.

In this training, participants will learn about the effects of microaggressions on vulnerable populations. The presenter will define microaggression and apply a theoretical taxonomy to child welfare recipients. A summary of research findings on the relationships between microaggressions and physical and mental health will be presented. Participants will be able to practice and identify strategies to create more self-awareness about the implicit biases that can lead to microaggressions.

Revisiting our Consensus on Sexual Boundary Violations: A Clinical, Historical and Metapsychological Analysis of the “Primal Crime”

  • Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

In the final decades of the 20th century, the pioneering work of Glen Gabbard and others led to a near unanimous consensus about “sexual boundary violations” (SBV): what they are and why they are so profoundly injurious to the psychoanalytic community, especially analytic patients and their families. In addition to the sexual misconduct of the individual analyst, we must direct our attention to the role of narcissism (both “normal” and “pathological”), not only in the individual analyst, but also as a collective “force” or “drive” that predominates in the life of human groups and therefore also in our professional history. There is an element of trans-generational trauma involved, and we need to be able to recognize this among ourselves and to talk about it at a much deeper level than we normally do—no easy task! This paper will explore these issues in clinical, theoretical and historical terms, and will include discussion of material from analysts and patients who have had experience of what it means to “cross the line.”

Improving Equity: Working with Rural LGBT Individuals *

Course Description:

* Specialty Practice Members Only

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender (LGBT) individuals continue to face greater health threats and disparities than their heterosexual peers. Importantly, LGBT people are members of every community, and include people of all races and ethnicities, all ages, all faiths and socioeconomic statuses, and from all parts of the country. Although much has changed socially and politically regarding the social and legal status of LGBT persons, issues of marginalization, stigmatization, and homophobia continue to plague the LGBT community. LGBT individuals in rural environments continue to face greater psychosocial and health disparities compared to their urban LGBT counterparts. This is in addition to the challenges of access to economic, educational, and healthcare opportunities we often find in rural areas.

Social workers have an essential role to play across the lifespan of LGBT individuals. Social workers often find themselves as one of the first persons an individual will identify to, as well as the one ensuring an individual's identity is respected in later life.

This webinar will provide an overview of the experience of LGBT individuals in rural environments throughout the lifespan. Throughout the webinar participants can expect to gain knowledge about issues facing rural LGBT persons, existing community strengths, as well as resources and tools to interact with rural LGBT clients and communities.

Postpartum Support International 2-Day Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder Conference

  • Postma Center at Pine Rest (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

The medical community has made minimal progress in understanding more about  treatment  and care of families  experiencing   perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs). We are caring for women more often who are affected with this illness and have realized that they have different treatment needs than others with generalized depression and/or anxiety. Their needs can be so significant and debilitating that we need to learn and utilize better strategies of how to treat these individuals, including new fathers with PMAD, which little research and information exists .  There is a gap in understanding the best treatment modalities for this population.

Out of Control Sexual Behavior (OCSB) Versus Sex Addiction Treatment: Helping Clients with Problematic Sexual Behaviors

Course Description:

With the recent addition of the diagnosis “Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder” in the ICD-11, there is confusion about whether or not it applies to the “sex addiction” model. Rather than providing a pathway to healing, the “sex addiction” model too often contributes to clients being sexually lost and at odds with their erotic nature.  Therapists are left with both being unable to help clients with their continued out-of-control sexual behaviors and also with the consequences of being the recipient of a pathologizing label.  This workshop will educate therapists on the new strength-based model of Out-of-Control Sexual Behavior (OCSB) which comes from a position of sexual health as an alternative to the sex addiction model.  We'll focus on: How to help clients develop a non-pathologizing understanding of their own individual sexuality and erotic identity; A comprehensive assessment and alternative treatment that emphasizes the guiding principles of sexual behavior rather than pathologizing the sexual behavior itself; Helping therapists explore their own countertransference with clients struggling with sexual behaviors the therapist experiences as problematic; Differentiating normative male sexuality from out-of-control sexual behaviors around the use of porn, fetishes, and sex with partners; Educating therapists on healthy sexual expressions and erotic orientations.

The False Self: The Complexity of Body Image and Identity Issues in the Treatment of Eating Disorders

Course Description:

Body image is perhaps the least understood and most complex of the core issues associated with eating disorder treatment. As an integral part of the life cycle, body image development shifts and adapts as we age and engage in life experiences. It is ironic that although our clients are focused on and obsessed with their bodies, they remain virtually disconnected from the experience of living in their bodies.

This seminar will address the intricate interplay between brain, body and beliefs (why we believe what we believe). Repetition of messages and experiences become internalized and influence, not only self-perception and self-talk, but the body itself. Negative reinforcement often becomes imprinted in the client’s bodymind, feels “true” and serves as the client’s identity.

Attendees will learn body-focused, bottom-up strategies designed to help clients reclaim their authentic self. Lecture, demonstration/experiential exercises and video clips will be utilized and attendees will be provided with a resource packet.

 Applicable to Social Work Practice:

In order to be reflective of the community that we serve, social workers need to be conscious of how our internal framework and thinking may affect the way we interact and treat each other and our patients. Studies show that building a meaningful connection between care provider and patient increases the likelihood that the patient will adhere to care plans, thus increasing the patient outcome

When Trauma Leads to Psychosis: Healing Begins by Finding the Story

Course Description:

Many studies now provide evidence that psychosis can be an understandable reaction to trauma, abuse, and other difficult experiences, with dissociation usually involved in that reaction. Learn about a science-based yet humanistic conceptualization of extreme human experiences, and discover ways to help people change their relationship with these experiences, by collaborating in building coherent and compassionate self-narratives that set the stage for real recovery. Even when trauma is only part of the story of what led to psychosis, clarifying the story may be very helpful in supporting a return to a meaningful life.

It Takes Three to Understand One: The Essential Role of Ongoing Consultation

  • Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Psychoanalytic training has often perpetuated a myth that once an analyst has graduated, he or she should be able to practice without assistance. In reality, due to the ongoing influence of transference/countertransference dynamics, even the most well trained and experienced analysts inevitably become mired in enactments that operate outside the analyst’s consciousness.  Therefore, it is argued, it is imperative that analysts seek ongoing consultation for their psychotherapy and psychoanalytic work.  This presentation examines six aspects of receiving and providing consultation that improve analysts’ functioning.

Pain Symptoms as Messengers: Listening to the Body as a Pathway to Healing

Course Description:

This workshop will reveal how physical pain symptoms are bodily messengers that can help individuals understand and manage pain symptoms. These pain symptoms can be caused by persistent unhealthy beliefs and difficult emotions as well as physical injury. The unpleasant nature of pain symptoms generally lead to difficult emotions, which can then generate more pain. When this cycle of pain symptoms goes unnoticed or unaddressed, the cumulative effect can lead to more serious physical and mental health problems. In this workshop, you will learn to differentiate difficult emotions from physical pain sensations, as you practice a body-based strategy to manage pain symptoms for optimal health. The workshop will offer brief lecture, discussion, and experiential exercises. The presenter aims to have participants leave with practical strategies and a renewed charge for reading and managing pain symptoms while moving forward with their work and life goals when working with clients.

*Recommended for LMSW beginning skill level

Understanding the Responsibility of Parenting Transracially

Course Description:

Adopting transracially requires adoptive parents to give attention to and have ongoing discussions about race and culture. A prerequisite to these activities is a willingness to reflect on one’s own privilege, to understand and identify examples of colorism, to have knowledge about how stereotypes inform implicit bias, and to deal with how those biases impact familial and societal interactions. The presenter will share her perspective in an effort to help participants gain a deeper understanding of the responsibility of parenting transracially, increase their awareness about the difference between intent and impact, and develop strategies for identifying and curbing micro-aggressions.

Understanding, Identifying and Interacting with Trafficking Survivors

“Only DEATH Can Set Me Free”: Moral Injury and the Veteran Suicide Epidemic

  • Bay de Noc Community College Heirman University Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

*Will contain graphic content*

As long as humans have engaged in war, moral injury has existed. Over the years, moral injury has taken on many names, including soldier’s heart, shell shock, battle fatigue, and most recently, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. While some symptoms of moral injury overlap with PTSD, it is important to understand that moral injury and PTSD are not the same thing, and diagnosing moral injury as PTSD can result in a missed opportunity to help a veteran in need of healing. In this workshop, you will hear firsthand veteran accounts of combat exposure, the resulting trauma symptoms and injuries to the soul, and the difference between treatment and healing. With at least 20 veterans taking their lives every day, it is time to address moral injury as one of the root causes of veteran suicide.

*Recommended for LMSW beginning, intermediate, and advanced skill levels
