    "Brainspotting: Trauma Therapy the Works!"

    Presented by: 

     Lisa Larson, LMFT 


    • Friday, January 8, 2021
    • 10:30 am - 1:45 pm
    • Zoom Webinar
    • 3 CEUs


    Course Description         

    "Brainspotting" is a powerful, brain-based trauma therapy that accesses the deepest regions of the brain where clients store their traumatic experiences and survival terror. This access to the limbic system and brainstem allows deep transformation to occur. It works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional and body pain, trauma, dissociation, terror, flashbacks, panic, and other challenging symptoms. Symptoms of unprocessed trauma, which include chronic anxiety, insomnia, and numbing, are notoriously difficult to eliminate through talk therapy. This is because the brain becomes overwhelmed and is unable to process verbal information about the traumatic events.

    "Brainspotting" was voted the most effective trauma treatment by the parents and survivors of the Sandy Hook massacre after a five-year study by the Sandy Hook Foundation comparing over 25 therapeutic modalities. The parents rated it first in its effectiveness in treating the traumatic loss of their young children.

    This presentation teaches participants to metrically measure the efficacy of each session with their clients so it is very clear if the client is benefiting from the treatment. It also will help the attendees stay abreast of the most recent brain-based breakthroughs in treating clients with PTSD. This presentation underscores principles of complete non-judgment and compassion for each and every client. It also encourages the therapist to follow the client, rather than lead.

    Learning Objectives

    1. Understand the core components of Brainspotting including how to apply Brainspotting to Trauma, Dissociation, Anxiety, Performance Anxiety, Somatic Conditions, Addiction and Self Loathing.

    2. Demonstrate the theories and practices of Brainspotting.

    3. Understand how this powerful modality can integrate into your current practice and increase your effectiveness with this challenging population.

        "Porn and Relationships: Taking a Sex-Positive Approach"

        Presented by: 

        Diane Gleim, LMFT, CST 


        • Saturday, February 6, 2021
        • 10:30 am - 1:45 pm
        • Zoom Webinar
        • 3 CEUs


        Course Description         

        In the 21st century, pornography has become the lightning rod where sexuality, technology, and morality all collide. As a result, it is a confusing subject for most, including the mental health profession. As therapists we live in the same sexually illiterate, sexually oppressive, and sex-negative society as our clients and we too can be harmed by overt and covert cultural messaging about any and all topics related to sex.

        In addition, our profession marginalizes sex: there is and has been a profound erotophobia across the field for generations. Furthermore, it has been difficult for our profession to see the role morality plays in our understanding and treatment of human sexuality issues. Current research shows that therapist training in sexuality is often limited in scope and depth and this directly impacts a clinician’s comfort and competence in working with any sexual issue. Without critical thinking and additional, specialized training, therapists can default to sex-negative and traditional gendered stereotypes about sex. This of course includes ideas about pornography. The thoughtful therapist is aware of this but may not know what else to think, where to turn for more information, or how else to treat pornography issues.

        In this 1.5 hour training, attendees will get a primer on porn literacy - a new way to conceptualize and relate to pornography without pathologizing or shaming. Recent research about pornography viewers and a client-centered perspective on pornography will be also presented. Attendees may find their previous assumptions challenged and their biases identified. Finally, attendees will learn some tools for their sex-positive toolkit to help both individuals and couples where pornography is causing conflict.

        Learning Objectives

        1. Compare the different elements regarding what pornography is, is not, can be, and is ambiguous about.

        2. Identify four factors that make a client vulnerable to pornography issues.

        3. Apply two interventions to help clients with pornography issues.

            "Providing Effective Therapy to Clients with Autism"

            Presented by: 

            Haleigh Scott, PhD


            • Friday, March 5, 2021
            • 10:30 am - 1:45 pm
            • Zoom Webinar
            • 3 CEUs


            Course Description         

            Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a diagnosis that has gained increased attention over the past few decades, largely due to the rapid increase in cases. According the latest CDC numbers, 1 in 54 children has an ASD diagnosis. This is a lot of children and adults that need services! While many people think that people with ASD only need disability specific care, such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), nothing could be further from the truth. Children and adults with ASD have high rates of co-occurring mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD.

            Unfortunately, people with ASD face barriers in accessing the mental health care that they need for these conditions. While there are many complex reasons that people with ASD struggle to obtain needed care, one component of this problem is that mental health care providers often feel they are not qualified to treat these clients. In this presentation participants will learn about ASD, debunk common myths about people with ASD and therapy, and begin to build the confidence and competence to provide essential mental health care to this population.

            Learning Objectives

            1. Evaluate current practices and beliefs surrounding providing treatment to people with autism.

            2. Understand the important role of community mental health providers in supporting people with autism.

            3. Create a plan for building institutional or personal capacity to provide mental health treatment for people with autism.

                "Winnocott Goes Viral:

                A Look at Early Relationships Through Viral Videos"

                Presented by: 

                Orit Weksler, LMFT

                • Friday, April 2, 2021

                • 2 CEUs

                Course Description         

                What makes our early experiences meaningful and useful? What helps us know ourselves and make sense of the world? Using viral videos from the early days of YouTube, we will attempt to answer these questions using Winnicott’s ideas about “The Full Experience”; “Personal Gestures”; “A Holding Environment” and Transitional Space”. We will think about attachment, metallization, play and discuss ideas about rhythm, knowledge and the importance of pausing in an interactive and fun training.

                Learning Objectives 

                1. Know about Winnicott's concepts of "The full experience", "Transitional space", "Holding environment".

                2. Understand the relationship between "rhythm", "knowledge" and "pause" in creating a transitional space that allows for growth and creativity.

                3. Experience a "holding environment" in the presentation itself and reflect on how to use this experience in their clinical work.
