    Brain and magnifying glass.Transforming Trauma: The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) for Addressing Adverse Childhood Experiences and Resolving Complex Trauma

    Presented by: 

    Brad Kammer, LMFT, LPCC


    Friday, Mar. 3, 2023

    9:00 am - 1:15 pm

    Zoom

    Qualifies for 4 CEs (4 hours of instruction with one 15-minute break)

    Course Description         

    This webinar will introduce you to the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) for addressing adverse childhood experiences and resolving complex trauma. NARM is a promising therapeutic modality for addressing life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties that arise from unresolved attachment, relational, developmental, cultural and intergenerational trauma.

    NARM weaves together a “bottom-up” and “top-down” approach, integrating somatic, psychodynamic and relational clinical skills, that helps clients address the adaptive survival styles they’ve used to manage the impact of ACEs and C-PTSD. Offering a new perspective on post-traumatic growth, focusing on relational health and heartfulness, NARM provides a powerful model for supporting personal and collective transformation.

    Learning Objectives

    At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
    1. Identify how the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) fits into the current field of Trauma-Informed therapeutic approaches.

    2. Differentiate NARM from other Trauma-Informed therapeutic approaches.
    3. Differentiate between shock trauma (PTSD) and developmental/complex trauma (C-PTSD).
    4. Understand the life-long impacts of unresolved adverse childhood experiences and complex trauma from a NARM perspective.
    5. Identify the 5 NARM Adaptive Survival Styles.
    6. Identify the NARM Relational Model.
    7. Identify the NARM 4 Pillars model.
    8. Identify the NARM focus on Heartfulness and Post-Traumatic Growth.

          Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD) and Psychosis: A Biopsychosocial Perspective

          Presented by: 

          Anish Shah, MD, Psychiatrist


          NEW DATE: Friday, April 7, 2023

          9:00 am - 12:15 pm

          Zoom

          3.0 CEs

          Note: This event was originally planned for January. If you registered for that original date under a "free" member level, we ask you to please re-register here to attend the rescheduled April 7th event.  If you registered under a "paid" registration, contact us at therapy@recamft.org and we can either transfer your registration to this new date or issue a full refund at your request. If we don't hear from you by April 1, we will refund your original registration fee.


          Course Description         

          This presentation will include how to evaluate and treat treatment resistant depression and associated psychosis. Most studies suggest that about 10%–30% of patients with clinical depression do not improve or show a partial response coupled with functional impairment, poor quality of life, suicide ideation and attempts, self-injurious behavior, and a high relapse rate. Treatment resistant depression is a complicated psychiatric issue which has a significant cost in our society when it comes to economic and social factors.

          The pathology is difficult to treat with standard treatment. It requires a novel treatment approach and comprehensive biopsychosocial treatment involving addressing all psychosocial factors with evidence based psychotherapy. Our patients with repeated episodes of depression, bipolar disorder, elderly population, women , severe chronic pain and sleep problems are especially vulnerable to TRD.

          Psychotic depression, or major depressive disorder with psychotic features, is a serious illness during which a person experiences the combination of depressed mood and psychosis, with the psychosis commonly manifesting itself as nihilistic or somatic-type delusions.

          In the STOP-PD study, the diagnosis of psychotic depression was missed 27% of the time, which was likely a conservative estimate because patients with comorbid conditions, such as substance abuse in the past three months, or unstable medical conditions were excluded.

          In the United States, despite the APA practice guideline recommending the combination of an antidepressant and antipsychotic for the acute treatment of psychotic depression since 2000 , studies have shown that only 5% of patients with psychotic depression receive an adequate combination of an antidepressant and an antipsychotic. Up your game with this fascinating 3 hour presentation! 

          Learning Objectives

            At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
            1. Evaluate clients for Treatment Resistant Depression and Psychosis.
            2. Describe the Biological Theory of Clinical Depression and Psychosis.
            3. Understand Psychopharmacological Treatment of Clinical Depression and Psychosis.
            4. Understand Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Treatment for Clinical Depression: Theory and Treatment approach.
            5. Describe a novel approach with Ketamine for Treatment resistant depression.

                  About Anish Shah, MD, Psychiatrist

                  Anish Shah, MD

                  Dr. Anish Shah, MD has been a practicing psychiatrist in Northern California for 19 years, gaining experience in several behavioral health settings, including Lake County Mental Health, Kaiser Permanente, and Sonoma County Mental Health. In addition to direct patient care, I also served as the Medical Director of Napa State Hospital before launching his practice in 2012. As the Medical Director at Napa State Hospital, he led a staff of 220 medical professionals and managed a $4 million medical services budget.

                  Currently, Dr. Shah is the CEO and Medical Director of Siyan Clinical Corporation (SCC) located in Santa Rosa, California. Established initially as a solo private practice, SCC has since grown into one of the largest psychiatric practices north of San Francisco with ten clinicians (three psychiatrists, three therapists, and four mid-level providers) and more than 5,500 registered patients. The most substantial behavioral health concern among SCC's patient population is generalized anxiety disorder. In his leadership role, he has had the opportunity to collaborate with several leading experts in psychotherapy. This relationship with local providers, as well as an extensive patient database, will enables SCC to obtain valuable input that they can use in the development of a mobile application, ensuring a high-quality product that will genuinely benefit those suffering from generalized anxiety disorder.

                  Dr. Shah has eight published papers in peer-reviewed journals on topics including bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, clinical depression, and opiate dependence treatment. He also has two publications, on chronic pain and overcoming wildfire trauma, in local magazines. Furthermore, he is active in the community as a behavioral health resource, providing behavioral health expertise upon request as well as continuing education programs in the prevention, treatment, and management of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and opiate dependence.

                  In addition, Dr. Shah has extensive experience as a researcher leading clinical trials. He served as the Principal Investigator for two Phase 3 clinical trials investigating therapeutic modalities for treating patients with major depressive episodes associated with bipolar I or bipolar II disorder. He is also currently the Principal Investigator for a study evaluating the efficacy of Vortioxetine in subjects with panic disorder.

                  RECAMFT's 3000 Hour Club presents our monthly

                  Walk & Talk

                  for our Prelicensed Members. Students, Trainees and Associates are all welcome!! 

                  RECAMFT's 3000 Hour Club for Prelicensed Members next meets:

                  Friday, Apr. 7th, 2023
                  3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

                  Your hosts: Jessica Heaney, AMFT and Debbie Melmon, LMFT.

                  Your prelicensed event

                  Walk & Talk was designed to address the perceived need for students, trainees and associates to receive support, connection, guidance and case conceptualization outside of the supervision relationship. On the first Friday of each month, our prelicensed members are invited to meet with each other and guest RECAMFT LMFTs of various orientations, who offers their knowledge and wisdom, on a beautiful farm and garden on the edge of Ragle Ranch Park in Sebastopol. We sit together and check in for the first hour. In the second hour we hit the trail for a gentle walk in the park while discussing a member's case of interest. The combination of connection and movement in the beauty of nature creates an environment for growth and camaraderie. You can use Walk & Talk as a resource as it fits in your schedule / life (not a monthly commitment) and a way to meet prelicensed people in all stages, a place to share successes, challenges and find support.

                  • Location: Debbie’s Barn and office at 8325 Candy Apple Ln. Sebastopol, 95472.
                  • Register online for each session separately.
                  • Sessions meet on the first Friday of each month from 3:00-5:00pm.
                  • This group is not supervision or a replacement for supervision and CEs of any form, and “credit” is not available.
                  • Confidentiality is the cornerstone of safety. Everything discussed in the group, stays with the group and participants are asked to discuss the content of group ONLY in our group sessions.
                  • The nature trail we walk is sparsely populated, however, when we do encounter the public we suspend our conversation until we are once again out of ear shot of strangers.
                  • Specific names as well as identifying features of clients will not be used or discussed.
                  • Members are asked to bring all legal and ethical issues, as well as challenging cases and topics that may arise in Walk and Talk, to their supervisors for discussion and treatment planning.
                  • Members are asked to speak with the group leaders if something is said in group that is upsetting or confusing.
                  • We practice our active listening and effective communication skills, we refrain from advise giving and cross talk and encourage inquiry and input from our own experiences.

                  Come join new and old friends, goats, chickens, dogs and wilderness for an informal consultation - it may be the best therapy yet!

                    Course Description         

                    Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is at the forefront of the psychedelic psychotherapy movement. When used under proper medical and therapeutic supervision, ketamine can provide near-immediate relief from emotional pain, while helping individuals look deeply into themselves. It has been shown to quickly help with Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD) as well as chronic suicidal ideation. We find that ketamine’s healing potential is most effective when combined with psychotherapy from a trained provider. KAP can be a powerful tool to examine the unconscious processes that keep one stuck in negative and obsessive patterns.

                    KAP has been used to successfully treat PTSD, anxiety disorders, developmental trauma, phase of life issues, as well as helping clients navigate end of life and spiritual exploration. With careful attention to science, safety, and the individual needs of each client, KAP can lead to healing and transformation. This work can help clients transcend long-held narratives, feeling/mood states, and struggles that they may be having difficulty shifting with traditional psychotherapy and/or psychopharmacology. While there continues to be progress with clinical trials using psilocybin and MDMA to treat mental health disorders, ketamine is the psychedelic medicine that can currently be legally prescribed and supervised by trained, licensed professionals. Join the team at Evolve Mind Wellness in Sebastopol to learn more about this modality and how you can collaborate with psychedelic therapists to assist your clients in deepening their work.

                    Learning Objectives

                      At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

                      1. Understand what Ketamine is and what role it has in mental health treatment
                      2. Become familiar with general principles of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, and understand the values and philosophies embedded in psychedelic medicine work as they contrast with psychiatric prescribing and conventional therapies.
                      3. Be able to identify clients who may benefit from Ketamine and KAP
                      4. Be able to identify common contraindications for Ketamine treatment
                      5. Feel confident and comfortable explaining basics of KAP to clients and prescribers, and developing a relationship with prescriber.
                      6. Be able to discuss/identify issues in ethics and care delivery in psychedelic medicine.
                      7. Understand key indications for KAP and have realistic expectations for potential treatment outcomes.

                            About Our Speakers

                            Evolve Mind Wellness logoGerman Ascani, MD, is a board-certified psychiatrist, with a broad range of clinical expertise, having worked extensively over a decade in public and community mental health systems. He has experience in primary care and specialty clinics providing psychiatric consultation to serve diverse clinical populations across the full spectrum of mental health and illness. Dr. Ascani has particular interests in the potential for psychological, emotional and spiritual healing that new and emerging psychedelic medicines bring to the mental health field. He supports the safe use of these powerful transformative tools to open up a process of deep exploration, self-reflection and lasting growth.

                            German is a graduate of the University of California Davis School of Medicine. He completed his general psychiatric training at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, California. He has a Masters of Science in Physiology from Georgetown University and a BA in psychology from the University of California at Berkeley. He has collaborated in the latest published research on Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP). He also presently serves as co-faculty and medical lead for PRATI (Psychedelic Research and Training Institute) for their KAP trainings for mental health professionals, and is a research therapist for the MAPS phase 3 research trial of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD in Fort Collins. He is a native of Argentina.

                            Shanna Butler, PhD, is a Licensed Psychologist offering depth and somatic psychotherapy, and ketamine assisted psychotherapy. She has trained in ketamine-assisted psychotherapy with Sage Integrative Health and is currently enrolled in the MAPS MDMA Therapy Training Program. Additional specializations include affirmative psychotherapy for the LGBTQ communities, trauma recovery, addictions, relational issues, and spiritual and creative development. Her philosophy as a psychologist is informed from many streams including rigorous study of depth psychology, social justice traditions, many wisdom traditions, earth based spiritualities, energy medicine, and intuition.

                            Moksha Donohue, LMFT: Moksha is a Somatic Psychotherapist working with adults and teens addressing depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, and life transitions. She has been working as a guide in the psychedelic community for 4 years and has been trained in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy from the Polaris Insight Institute. She is interested in bringing KAP into groups because she believes the power of psychedelics to increase in community spaces. Much like in meditation, when there are groups sharing a sacred setting and intention, the potential for healing can be much deeper. She is also leading group psychedelic integration circles to foster greater connection in the community for her clients.

                            Celeste Monnette, LCSW, is a licensed psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience. She earned her Master’s degree in Social Welfare from UC Berkeley and has worked in community-based nonprofits and private practice. In 2005, she completed a two-year, post-graduate training program at The Psychotherapy Institute in Berkeley. Since, she has been working with clients with a broad range of goals for symptom relief and healing through various therapeutic modalities. After discovering the power of Ketamine to heal and reduce suffering, Celeste’s professional focus and development began to center around ketamine work and psychedelic integration. Celeste is currently enrolled in the MDMA Therapy Training Program and has a particular interest in trauma and trauma-informed care. She recently co-authored a publication on Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP).

                            Suegee Tamar-Mattis, DO, is a board-certified Family Medicine physician, certified in psychedelic-assisted therapies and research from the California Institute for Integral Studies, and trained in ketamine-assisted psychotherapy at the Polaris Insight Center.

Dr. Tamar-Mattis is a long-time advocate for the intersex community, serving as a consultant for Human Rights Watch and as a medical advisor to interACT: Advocates for Intersex Youth.

                            for our Prelicensed Members. Students, Trainees and Associates are all welcome!! 

                            RECAMFT's 3000 Hour Club for Prelicensed Members next meets:

                            Friday, May 5th, 2023
                            3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

                            Your hosts: Jessica Heaney, AMFT and Debbie Melmon, LMFT.

                            Your prelicensed event

                            Walk & Talk was designed to address the perceived need for students, trainees and associates to receive support, connection, guidance and case conceptualization outside of the supervision relationship. On the first Friday of each month, our prelicensed members are invited to meet with each other and guest RECAMFT LMFTs of various orientations, who offers their knowledge and wisdom, on a beautiful farm and garden on the edge of Ragle Ranch Park in Sebastopol. We sit together and check in for the first hour. In the second hour we hit the trail for a gentle walk in the park while discussing a member's case of interest. The combination of connection and movement in the beauty of nature creates an environment for growth and camaraderie. You can use Walk & Talk as a resource as it fits in your schedule / life (not a monthly commitment) and a way to meet prelicensed people in all stages, a place to share successes, challenges and find support.

                            • Location: Debbie’s Barn and office at 8325 Candy Apple Ln. Sebastopol, 95472.
                            • Register online for each session separately.
                            • Sessions meet on the first Friday of each month from 3:00-5:00pm.
                            • This group is not supervision or a replacement for supervision and CEs of any form, and “credit” is not available.
                            • Confidentiality is the cornerstone of safety. Everything discussed in the group, stays with the group and participants are asked to discuss the content of group ONLY in our group sessions.
                            • The nature trail we walk is sparsely populated, however, when we do encounter the public we suspend our conversation until we are once again out of ear shot of strangers.
                            • Specific names as well as identifying features of clients will not be used or discussed.
                            • Members are asked to bring all legal and ethical issues, as well as challenging cases and topics that may arise in Walk and Talk, to their supervisors for discussion and treatment planning.
                            • Members are asked to speak with the group leaders if something is said in group that is upsetting or confusing.
                            • We practice our active listening and effective communication skills, we refrain from advise giving and cross talk and encourage inquiry and input from our own experiences.

                            Come join new and old friends, goats, chickens, dogs and wilderness for an informal consultation - it may be the best therapy yet!

                              Walk & Talk was designed to address the perceived need for students, trainees and associates to receive support, connection, guidance and case conceptualization outside of the supervision relationship. On the first Friday of each month, our prelicensed members are invited to meet with each other and guest RECAMFT LMFTs of various orientations, who offers their knowledge and wisdom, on a beautiful farm and garden on the edge of Ragle Ranch Park in Sebastopol. We sit together and check in for the first hour. In the second hour we hit the trail for a gentle walk in the park while discussing a member's case of interest. The combination of connection and movement in the beauty of nature creates an environment for growth and camaraderie. You can use Walk & Talk as a resource as it fits in your schedule / life (not a monthly commitment) and a way to meet prelicensed people in all stages, a place to share successes, challenges and find support.

                              • Location: Debbie’s Barn and office at 8325 Candy Apple Ln. Sebastopol, 95472.
                              • Register online for each session separately.
                              • Sessions meet on the first Friday of each month from 3:00-5:00pm.
                              • This group is not supervision or a replacement for supervision and CEs of any form, and “credit” is not available.
                              • Confidentiality is the cornerstone of safety. Everything discussed in the group, stays with the group and participants are asked to discuss the content of group ONLY in our group sessions.
                              • The nature trail we walk is sparsely populated, however, when we do encounter the public we suspend our conversation until we are once again out of ear shot of strangers.
                              • Specific names as well as identifying features of clients will not be used or discussed.
                              • Members are asked to bring all legal and ethical issues, as well as challenging cases and topics that may arise in Walk and Talk, to their supervisors for discussion and treatment planning.
                              • Members are asked to speak with the group leaders if something is said in group that is upsetting or confusing.
                              • We practice our active listening and effective communication skills, we refrain from advise giving and cross talk and encourage inquiry and input from our own experiences.

                              Come join new and old friends, goats, chickens, dogs and wilderness for an informal consultation - it may be the best therapy yet!
