        Presented By: Talal Alsaleem, LMFT, President, Sacramento Valley CAMFT.

        Talal Alsaleem, LMFT, founder of the Infidelity Counseling Center, has created this workshop to help clinicians of all levels conceptualize and treat infidelity from the framework of trauma. Working with couples in crisis can be overwhelming for new and seasoned clinicians, especially when it comes to working with clients struggling with infidelity who are often in extreme emotional distress and feeling lost and hopeless about the future of their relationship. 

        The knowledge base you will gain from this workshop as well as the clinical interventions you will learn are based on extensive clinical work with couples dealing with infidelity. Completing this workshop will expand your understanding of the process of healing and give you the clinical tools you need to help your clients recover individually or as a couple.

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

        1. Participants will recognize the psychological and physical impact of affairs.

        2. Participants will identify types of affairs and distinguish the different causes behind each type.

        3. Participants will learn about the seven milestones of healing from infidelity and articulate the specific intervention needed to complete each milestone.

He is an infidelity recovery specialist, and works exclusively with couples who are dealing with the impact of physical and emotional affairs.

        Presented By: Fran Wickner, PhD, LMFT

        SFBT is imperative to learn for therapists who want diversity in their practice. Culturally, it is not unusual for clients from some cultures to feel uncomfortable talking to someone outside of their family about personal matters. SFBT is not long term and doesn’t require the therapist to “dig deep”. It’s based on where the client is, not what the therapist thinks needs to happen. So it’s very appealing to clients who have the belief that it is not right to share their lives with strangers (i.e. the therapist). 

        In regard to economic diversity, knowing how to do SFBT is a necessity. Most low income clients not afford long term treatment and many low income clients have other factors that keep them from being able to commit to therapy long term. They may have jobs that don’t let them take off for “doctor's appointments”, or working too long hours, or taking care of family members, or not even the money to get to your office. Having the skills to help clients make changes in even a few sessions is important if you want to see clients across the socioeconomic spectrum. Helping them focus on goals and succeeding in these goals can help them make lasting changes.

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

        1. Understand SFBT assumptions, definitions and guidelines.

        2. Have the skills to set goals with their clients and develop a solution focused treatment plan including exactly what to say and do with their clients.

        3. Be able to incorporate the material into their own therapeutic belief system and utilize what they learned immediately with the clients they see.

        About our speaker

        Presented By: Jill Johnson-Young, LCSW

        No matter your career track as a clinician, you will face difficult moments and conversations that aren't covered in grad school, and that are influenced by your own experiences. Participants will learn what happens when death occurs, how to prepare a client and their family, the multiple facets of grief, and practice words and techniques to use (and not to) when facing a dying client and their family. You will leave with knowledge about creating a practical treatment plan, and an approach to grief that is about recover and making grief a learning and growth opportunity.

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

        1. Identify barriers to providing best practice services for dying clients resulting from your own experiences, and learn and practice new words and techniques.

        2. Increase knowledge of the impact grief can have, and how to create a treatment plan that's realistic for terminally ill clients and their family. 

        3. Learn new skills to meet the specific, realistic goals necessary to cope with family dynamics, micro and macro issues, and the dying process centered on the client's needs, and supporting the family.

        4. Become more aware of the need for self-care when working in this area, and conceptualize your own rituals to use to acknowledge a client's death.

        Presented By: Rick Grant-Coons, PsyD

        With a suicide death every 12.8 minutes and over a million attempts in the United States every year, suicide impacts every community. This is especially true for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning communities. Today, more research has shown elevated risk factors specific to these communities due to heterosexist and  transphobic abuse that exists in society. 

        LGBTQ Affirmative Therapy is an approach to psychotherapy that is based on the understanding that LGBTQ people are not just tolerated or accepted but instead celebrated for their value in any culture. This perspective is essential for effective therapy since it challenges many years of hostility inflicted by the dominate culture. Mental health clinicians trained in LGBTQ Affirmative Therapy and Suicide Prevention can improve their effectiveness for helping LGBTQ clients increase protective factors and resilience while decreasing risk of suicide attempts and death.

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

        1. Understand the risk factors and warning signs for suicide that are specific to the LGBTQ+ communities.

        2. Be able to identify LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapy interventions effective in reducing suicide risk. 

        3. Understand how to link LGBTQ+ clients to appropriate resources in the community. 

        About our speaker

        Dr. Grant-Coons first received his master’s in clinical psychology (MA) from Antioch University in Los Angeles and specialized in LGBTQ Affirmative Therapy. He then went on to complete his doctorate in clinical psychology (PsyD) from the California School of Professional Psychology in Los Angeles with an emphasis in multi-cultural and community psychology.

        Dr. Grant-Coons has been a psychotherapist since 2006 working mostly with marginalized communities. He trained at several community agencies including AIDS Project Los Angeles, Los Angeles LGBT Center, South Central Training Consortium, and the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital-High Risk Youth Program. He has also been in private practice since 2009 providing individual, couple’s, family and group psychotherapy.

        Before relocating to Sacramento, Dr. Grant-Coons was the Lead Clinical Supervisor at Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services-Suicide Prevention Center in Los Angeles developing and facilitating support groups for Suicide Attempt Survivors and providing suicide prevention trainings all across the United States and Canada. Currently, Dr. Grant-Coons has his psychotherapy private practice, Empowered Living Therapy, in Midtown Sacramento and is on the board of the Sacramento Valley Psychological Association as the Diversity Chair.

        Course Description         


        Whether they realize it or not, psychotherapists are creators of legal and ethical outcomes, whether for good or for ill. In this workshop, Dave Jensen, JD will instruct attendees on the ten principles that can be applied to help psychotherapists create legal and ethical outcomes, not illegal or unethical ones. This workshop will also spend a significant amount of time reviewing laws and cases concerning patients who are dangerous to third parties, and it will review in detail an actual BBS administrative law proceeding.


        There will be time for networking during the sign-in and the lunch break. Feel free to bring business cards and information about your therapy practice.

        Learning Objectives 


        This workshop is designed to help you:


        1. Identify the ten fundamentals of practicing legally, ethically, safely, and confidently.

        2. Recognize three differences between the duty to warn, the duty to protect, and the duty to report.

        3. Describe three aspects of a clinician’s credibility as a psychotherapist.

        4. List four hallmarks of thorough Tarasoff evaluation.


        This workshop satisfies the Law and Ethics course requirement of six (6) continuing education units mandated by the BBS for LMFTs, LPCCs, LCSWs and LEPs for each license renewal cycle. Participants will be updated on changes in the law that

        Presented By: Ivy Griffin, LMFT

        How familiar are you with the trait of Sensory Processing Sensitivity (SPS), more commonly known as being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)? Do you wonder if this is related to the Autism Spectrum? Did you know that as many as 50% of your clients may be HSPs?

        The term Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) was first coined by Elaine Aron as she delved into her research around the characteristics associated with this personality trait. Being an HSP is not a disorder. Instead, it is a personality trait, which can be very healing when people are able recognize, understand and work with their sensitivity, rather than spending their efforts fighting against it. This workshop will explain what it means to be an HSP, explore possible overlapping mental health concerns and identify treatment considerations and interventions for folks with this trait, who are also a large percentage of clients who seek therapy.

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

        1. Identify the characteristics of a personality trait termed Sensory Processing Sensitivity (SPS), or more commonly known as being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP).

        2. Understand differential diagnoses for mental health conditions that may co-occur or mimic some characteristics of being highly sensitive.

        3. Recognize treatment tools and considerations for working with HSPs who may comprise as much as 50% of a therapist's caseload.

        Presented By: Joe Petzel, LMFT

        Why are so many men creating so many of the world's problems? Can men change? Sure we all see individual men in our practices, and lives change and grow, but why do so many men who seek power act so unempathetic, so insensitive, with so little compassion? Why do so many men use violence, power, and control behavior? It's clear that many more men than women create these problems. Are men a tragically flawed group? An evolutionary "dead end"?

        Join us in a presentation/discussion that attempts to answer those questions. By answering these questions, and finding solutions, all of us can be part of the solution.

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

        1. Attendees will have an understanding of why so many men create so many of the world's big problems.

        2. Have an understanding of the solution to the problem of so many men having so little sensitivity, compassion, empathy, and ability to cooperate.

        3. Have tools for how to work with boys and men to assist them in encouraging, developing a deeper relationship with their sensitivity, compassion, empathy and cooperation. These tools have application in many other therapeutic situations.  

        About our speaker

        Presented By: Tim Stein, LMFT & Jeanne Vattuone, LCSW

        What is the difference between fun, adventurous sex and compulsive, addictive sex? Current research is giving us more information to answer this question.

        1. Participants will be able to describe how neurological changes impact the development of sex addiction

        Presented By: Sylvia Israel, LMFT

        What is Psychodrama? Psychodrama is a holistic experiential method of exploring a person’s internal and external worlds. The goal of psychodrama is to release the creativity and spontaneity of each individual, allowing them to clarify and gain new perspectives in relationships and problems. As clients move from “talking about” into action, opportunities arise to develop inner resources, heal the past, clarify the present and have hopes and dreams for the future. 

        After a brief talk on the history and theory of Psychodrama, we will move into experiential warm-ups that can be adapted to your work. We will then practice how to safely help clients access resources (interpersonal, intra-psychic and spiritual) through the embodiment of a role. The session will include a short Psychodrama.

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

        1. Apply one or more psychodramatic methods to your work.

        2. Explain the importance of warm-up when using role-play.

        3. Discuss why playing supportive roles is prescriptive for trauma healing.  

        About our speaker

        Sylvia Israel, LMFT (MFC #31245), TEP, RDT/BCT, Board Certified Trainer, Educator and Practitioner of Psychodrama and Registered Drama Therapist/Board Certified Trainer, teaches at CA Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) and Kansas State University. Sylvia is co-­founder of Bay Area Moreno Institute, IMAGINE! Center for Creativity & Healing and Bay Area Playback Theatre. She is also a Certified Trainer in the Therapeutic Spiral Model of working with trauma and a national (including Spirit Rock Meditation Center) and international presenter. Sylvia enjoys supporting clients in awakening to their spontaneity and creativity and living more fully in the present moment. Her work blends verbal and somatic therapy with drama, sandtray and other expressive arts.
