    Our community has come together in remarkable and beautiful ways since the fires. However many who have lost their loved ones, pets, homes, and possessions are struggling with their grief, stress, and sense of loss.

    Sonoma County licensed therapists are offering supportive grief groups for those who want to express their grief, tell their stories, and be with others who have had similar losses. This is not group therapy, but rather a chance to listen and speak the sense of loss we feel as a result of the fires. The group is limited to those who have experienced those losses firsthand.

    The groups are sponsored by Redwood Empire California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (RECAMFT.org), and will be held at Catholic Charities, and if there is interest, in other locations as well. They will be held on: 

    • Sat., February 3, 2018, 3:00 to 4:30 PM

    Presented By: Julie Stass, PhD, LCSW

    Julie says, "Like most MSWs and MFTs, I was trained to use specific theoretical models. With every question I asked or intervention used, my clinical supervisors required a logical theoretical justification. If I deviated from the traditional prescribed path and acted on an intuitive hunch my clinical supervisor became suspicious and concerned about my clinical judgment. 

    Today as a clinical supervisor, I agree with the need to scrutinize how interns practice psychotherapy. But, I am concerned that we are not training new clinicians that the importance of integrating natural emotional connections and intuitive responses is equally essential as using one of the preferred therapeutic models."

    This 90-minute session reaches out to clinicians who hesitate to trust the power and clarity that comes from their intuitive gut responses: what she calls "our inner healer". Julie will cover research that: 1) explains why emotional connections and clinical intuition are so affective in therapy and 2) confirms that clinicians who respond intuitively and develop strong trusting connections find that their clients are highly motivated and are able to sustain the positive changes they’ve made. Dr Stass will explore how to integrate a right-brained clinical practice into a left-brained performance focused marketplace. Finally, she’ll recommended daily practices that cultivate, motivate and sustain our inner healer.

    Learning Objectives - After completion of the presentation the attendees will:

    1. Identify the neuro-biological therapeutic changes that occur when the clinician and client emotionally connect.

    2. Know the research confirming that the therapist-client emotional connections motivates and sustains lasting change for clients; how right-brained connections heal old emotional wounds for both the client and the clinician.

    3. Know some daily practices that help motivate, support and sustain the intuitive clinician.

    Presented By: Annie Chen, LMFT, Barbara Ochsner-Walsh, LMFT, & Cheryl Cohen Greene, DHS

    As therapists we know that our clients struggle with sexual disorders and social concerns relating to difficulty with sexual stigmas in the world. We want to help them overcome these challenges but are often limited with the tools to help them. Surrogate partner therapy is an effective resource that has been used for over 50 years starting with Masters and Johnsons in their clinic.

    With combined 79 years of experience, the presenters will ensure that you will leave with additional tools and confidence on how to integrate surrogate partner therapy with individuals struggling with sexual issues.

    Above movie photo: Based on Cheryl Cohen Greene's work as a Surrogate Partner Sex Therapist, the movie, "The Sessions" starred Helen Hunt, and won numerous awards. 

    Learning Objectives - After completion of the presentation the attendees will:

    1. Experience and understand some of the somatic benefits of Surrogate Partner Therapy.

    2. Identify clients with whom this triad will benefit and prepare them for the work with the Surrogate Partner.

    3. Identify practical steps involved in collaborating with a Surrogate Partner.

    Presented By: Dr. Bruce Feingold, PhD, Licensed Clinical Psychologist

    Research suggests there are significant gender differences in how men and women manifest and experience depression, help seeking behavior, coping mechanisms, psychosocial risk factors, and rates of completed suicide. Men often present atypical externalizing symptoms of depression, such as anger, substance abuse, and risk-taking behaviors. Due to masculine gender norms, which emphasize independence, and avoidance of vulnerable feelings, men are less likely to seek psychotherapy, more likely to isolate themselves, suppress affect, and attempt to resolve depression on their own.

    Through extensive case studies, role play and discussion of contemporary research, participants will gain a better understanding of how masculine socialization norms and family of origin contribute to male depression, and a higher rate of successful suicide. The course will discuss the research by Joiner and Maltsberger to comprehend the cognitive, affective, ego and interpersonal issues associated with depression and suicide, and explore how to evaluate, and treat suicidal issues.

    As men understand the nature of depression and are more willing to seek help, therapists will learn how to utilize a variety of traditional therapeutic interventions to address the multiple symptoms of depression, and suicide.

    Learning Objectives - After completion of the presentation the attendees will:

    1. Understand gender differences regarding depression, diagnosis, help seeking behavior, coping mechanisms, psychosocial risk factors and suicide.

    2. Understand and apply clinically the effect of hegemonic masculinity on depression, and psychotherapy.

    3. Utilize the theories of depression and suicide, by Maltsberger and Joiner, to evaluate suicide risk, and make therapeutic interventions.

    4. Make gender specific, and integrated therapeutic interventions, with men coping with depression and suicide.

    Presented By: Leslie Davenport, LMFT

    Climate scientists estimate 200 million Americans will be touched by significant psychological distress from climate-related events in the upcoming years, and yet little attention is given to how to treat the trauma that results from client chaos. The mental health field is powerful in addressing the emotional underpinnings of climate denial, understanding motivators for change, and identifying the most effective communication strategies. Our profession is poised to cultivate a pragmatic form of hope by helping develop empowering actions, a clear direction, ways to connect with collective and systemic support, practices for effective self-care, and the tools and methods necessary for change. 

    Learning Objectives - After completion of the presentation the attendees will:

    1. Identify the growing relevance of climate change in psychotherapy.

    2. Analyze a variety of ways to ethically incorporate climate psychology perspectives into clinical practice.

    3. Identify key theoretical underpinnings of the psychology of climate change denial.

    About our speaker

    Leslie Davenport, LMFT, brings innovative climate solutions to the halls of academia, clinical settings, and to the streets. She is the author of three books, including Emotional Resiliency in the Era of Climate Change. Leslie is a founding member of the Institute for Health and Healing at California Pacific Medical Center, and her 25 years of developing an integrative, collaborative healing model has informed her approach to climate justice. Her former profession as a dancer keeps creativity alive in all she does. She has served on Red Cross Disaster Mental Health teams, and the 350.org Marin Clean Energy Campaign. This year she is teaching climate psychology on faculty at the California Institute of Integral Studies, JFK University, a webinar with Kosmos Journal, Hollyhock Retreat Center, and at Spiru Haret University in Romania.
