Course Description:

This interactive workshop will begin with a thought-provoking literature review and discussion on the topics of mothers who have toxic tendencies and the impact of being raised in this environment.

You will then examine the experiences of these daughters once they reach adulthood and are charged with the task of mothering their own infants and toddlers. Videotaped interviews of these daughters will be presented throughout this workshop and will be used to illustrate (in the words of the daughters) the challenges they face in the aftermath of their challenging relationships with their own mothers.

Strategies for Managing Your Change Management Initiative

Course Description:

Today, organizational change is inevitable – regardless of the size or industry of an organization. Equally important, the speed at which a new change occurs has accelerated. Organizational change can range from barely a blip/minimal to upending or transformational – but it will happen. Managing change and creating a change-ready culture is paramount. Questions we will answer during this Webinar will support understanding some of the dynamics of change (e.g., message, resistance, communication) and taking a strategic approach that intertwines both the people and the operational sides of change.

Understanding and Treating Men in Therapy and Mastering the Five Love Languages with Clients in Therapy and in Our Own Lives

Course Description:

We tend to think women as complicated and men as one-dimensional simpletons. As gender roles and expectations shift and technology has infiltrated every aspect of our lives, more men are seeking therapy and other forms of support. We urgently need to challenge our own assumptions about the landscape of the male psyche and what things men share in common with each other, with women, and how each man is--in the end--a unique individual. We'll also explore The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate, a 1995 book by Gary Chapman which outlines five primary ways we express and receive love: receiving gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service, and physical touch. Learn this model and how to apply it in your own life as well as with clients in therapy.

Ethics for Social Workers and Substance Use Disorder Providers in the 21st Century

Course Description:

The conceptual foundation of ethics represents an inherent and essential framework for behavioral health, including clinical social work. While assuming all ethical standards and professional codes of ethics represent identical approaches to care, significant differences exist. In this workshop, emphasis will be given to examining personal values and ethical concepts, contrasting those personal beliefs to professional codes of ethics and determining appropriate approaches to clientele. In addition, given the demands within behavioral health, boundary crossings as well as boundary violations receive prominent focus and attention.  This workshop will actively engage participants, prioritizing current issues in the field through use of controversial topics and issues. You should come prepared for a thought provoking, emotionally challenging, actively engaged day via a multi-media, multi-sensory format, teaching to all styles of learning. Case study material will be utilized, with video clips presented from various health care disciplines, and didactic material that addresses both the conceptual and practical level.

Course Description:

 The presentation will be an overview of the DSMV Diagnostic Changes to PTSD(with special focus on Criteria E-2-“Reckless an Self Destructive Behavior”) and the new classification of Gambling Disorder as Substance Related and Addictive Disorders and its implications for combat veterans post 2001. It will also look at the different dimensions of stress and how combat service creates survival skills that, while necessary in war, can often remain activated post war and can, at times, overwhelm a veteran biologically, emotionally, spirituality, neurologically and many other ways. It will stress the importance of screening and proper referrals, within the VA’s Medical Centers, as well as civilian resources. It will also include a historical overview of the Department of Defense and their policies on Gambling. This will be a continuation of a workshop that took place in November 2018.

"In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction"

Course Description:

For twelve years Dr. Maté was the staff physician at a clinic for drug-addicted people in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, where he worked with patients challenged by hard-core drug addiction, mental illness and HIV, including at Vancouver Supervised Injection Site. In his most recent bestselling book , "In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts, " he shows that their addictions do not represent a discrete set of medical disorders; rather, they merely reflect the extreme end of a continuum of addiction, mostly hidden, that runs throughout our society. In The Realm Of Hungry Ghosts draws on cutting-edge science to illuminate where and how addictions originate and what they have in common. Contrary to what is often claimed, the source of addictions is not to be found in genes, but in the early childhood environment where the neurobiology of the brain’s reward pathways develops and the where the emotional patterns that lead to addiction are wired into the unconscious. Stress, both then and later in life, creates the predisposition for addictions, whether to drugs, alcohol, nicotine, or to behavioral addictions such as shopping or sex.

School Shootings, Best Practices, and the Need for More School-Based Mental Health Services *

Course Description:

Among the many priority issues facing school systems, school shootings represent an area of major concern. School shootings have generated a national debate on how to secure children in school settings in a society that allows its citizens the right to bear firearms. High profile school shootings have generated anxiety and fear among school-aged children and youth and their parents. Public demands to reduce the likelihood of school shootings include a call for greater gun control, greater police presence in schools, the issuing of guns to trained school based personnel, physical changes in school safety protocol, and a greater focus on screening for mental health problems in schoolchildren and adults working in schools.  

School social workers and other relates services personnel must be acutely aware of the circumstances in which school shootings may occur, preventive practices and best practices for reducing harm during the experience of an active shooter in a school. It is important that related services personnel understand the etiology of school shootings and engage in crisis intervention specific to the local setting.

 In this webinar, the presenter will discuss the reality of issues and options related to the prevention of school shootings. The discussion will include information on research findings, the identification of causal factors related to school shootings, and best practices concerning school shootings.

The Neuropsychology of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Google Calendar ICS

Course Description:

Psychological trauma occurs as the result of an extraordinarily stressful event that diminishes or destroys an individual's sense of security and involves a threat to life or safety. Traumatic experiences exceed the person's ability to cope, and the ability to integrate emotions involved with the experience. It is widely recognized that traumatic experiences contribute to the development of PTSD; however, neuroscience researchers also know the manner in which psychological trauma is associated with functional and even structural changes in the brain. This presentation will describe the neuropsychology of PTSD, and show how neuroimaging demonstrates changes in the amygdala, hippocampus, and prefrontal cortex resulting from trauma. The four important stages in healing from trauma will be discussed as well as treatment recommendations including EMDR and CBT.

Autism Training for Psychotherapists

Course Description:

The differences between individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their neurotypical (NT) counterparts are real. Nevertheless, especially for those who are often described as high-functioning, traditional mental interventions are rarely adapted to address the underlying characteristics of autism. This failure to modify strategies is related to the grim mental health, employment, educational, and social outcomes for autistic adults. A skilled provider utilizes strategies for modifying traditional interventions so that those with ASD can participate and benefit in new ways.

The diagnostic characteristics of ASD, as presented in the DSM-V will be reviewed. In addition, strategies for identifying the underlying characteristics of autism that are specific to each individual client will be presented. Participants will be introduced to Ziggurat Model, a framework, for providing psychotherapy for those with ASD.

Ethics for Social Workers and Substance Use Disorder Providers in the 21st Century

Course Description:

The conceptual foundation of ethics represents an inherent and essential framework for behavioral health, including clinical social work. While assuming all ethical standards and professional codes of ethics represent identical approaches to care, significant differences exist. In this workshop, emphasis will be given to examining personal values and ethical concepts, contrasting those personal beliefs to professional codes of ethics and determining appropriate approaches to clientele. In addition, given the demands within behavioral health, boundary crossings as well as boundary violations receive prominent focus and attention. This workshop will actively engage participants, prioritizing current issues in the field through use of controversial topics and issues. You should come prepared for a thought provoking, emotionally challenging, actively engaged day via a multi-media, multi-sensory format, teaching to all styles of learning. Case study material will be utilized, with video clips presented from various health care disciplines, and didactic material that addresses both the conceptual and practical level.

Trauma, Process and Representation

Course Description:

 Practice Gap/Need and Course Description: The concept of “trauma,” so central to Freud’s (1895b) original formulations of hysteria, continues to occupy a problematic place in psychoanalysis and for analysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapist.  This paper re-examines Freud’s concept of trauma and some of its implications for analytic process when viewed from the perspective of his theory of psychic representation as it has been advanced and extended by contemporary authors influenced by the work of Bion, Winnicott, Green and the Paris School of Psychosomatics.  Thus, in assessing the consequences of any experience or interaction, trauma can be measured by the extent to which various psychic processes referred to as cathexis (Winnicott 1971), containment (Bion 1970), objectalization (Green 2005), symbolization, figurability (Botella and Botella 2005), representation (Levine et al 2013), and other denominations of mental processing (Marty 1976, 1980) are disrupted or prevented from developing.  A brief clinical example is offered as illustration of these views.

Organizing Support to Protect & Expand School Social Work Jobs*

Course Description:

The roles and functions of school social workers are unique within school systems. While school social workers collaborate with other Specialized Instructional Support Personnel (SISP), there are numerous functions that school social workers perform that others cannot. Unfortunately, many school systems do not recognize the full value of school social work services and wrongfully may think that related professions can fill the roles of the school social worker. This webinar will address this issue by presenting proven strategies from the field that have protected existing school social work positions and have expanded positions within school systems. Case examples will be used to illustrate how school social workers can organize support both within and outside of the school system to protect and expand jobs. The presentation will include empowering students and families as allies, gaining community support, lobbying school boards and other public officials, and building coalition with your state NASW chapter. School social workers are wonderful advocates for students and their families. This webinar will help you build similar advocacy skills for yourself.

Non-profit organizations have the unique opportunity to fund programmatic, capital, and endowment projects through well-conceived philanthropy, and most require some level of donated funds to successfully meet their mission.

Even when the organization has full-time, dedicated fundraising staff, no one is exempt. There are key elements that need to be securely in place for sustainable fundraising success within an organization. This presentation will define these elements, describe their importance, and demonstrate how participants can measure each element within their own organization.

Course Description:

Social justice is foundational to the profession of social work, and advocacy is deeply rooted in its practice. While most social workers heed the call to challenge the balance of power and privilege at the macro-level, addressing them in clinical practice can prove difficult – especially when opportunity is limited and relevant support is scarce. This program will explore issues of power and privilege as they manifest between cisgender clinicians and the transgender, gender nonconforming, and non-binary clients that they serve. Introductory clinical skills and ethical issues in treatment will be examined.

Gender Affirming Care for Transgender Youth and Their Families

Course Description:

Transgender youth are among the least served, most at-risk members of society due to lack of affirming mental health services as well as the frequency of school and family rejection. The availability of culturally sensitive, evidence-based direct mental health care is life affirming and life saving! Mental health providers need to understand the basic elements of a gender transition—legal, social, and medical as well as the elements of delivering gender-affirming care to transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) youth and families. In this workshop, language and terminology will be examined, as well as multiple risk factors that impact transgender youth from a solution-focused lens. Family relationship dynamics, along with strategies to increase family support, will be explored with an emphasis on increasing parental capacity to support transgender youth. This workshop will also cover specific concerns that apply to TGNC children younger than age 13, such as understanding gender identify at younger ages, along with specific facts about working within elementary and preschool settings and offering long-term guidance and planning recommendations to parents and children that are developmentally appropriate.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Psychosis

Course Description:

Schizophrenia is a chronic and severe mental illness affecting roughly 26 million people, equating to 1% of the global population. Psychosis is experienced within schizophrenia spectrum or other psychotic disorders in addition to several other disorders, often framed as being 'psychotic features.' Since the majority of mental health services in the US are delivered by social workers, it is important for clinicians to be prepared for work with clients including the need for interventions tailored to the experience of psychosis. Cognitive-behavioral therapy for psychosis is a cognitive and behavioral approach tailored for individuals experiencing psychosis and is an effective and valuable evidence-based intervention to use in practice. This workshop will discuss an overview of psychosis and its prevalence, a brief overview of CBT theory and basics, a central focus on intervention using CBT for psychosis, and the integration of recovery-oriented approaches in practice.
