Gender Dysphoria: Overview of a Model for Assessment and Treatment

ID: 5372WEB

This program is the second in a series, and is recommended (but not required) after taking the Introduction to Gender Diversity webinar (#5371WEB) for those who do not have a strong basis of prior in-depth understanding of gender identity. It will bring participants beyond considerations of gender identity to begin developing a deep sense of gender dysphoria; the primary distress impacting the mental health and wellbeing of those who choose to undergo social and/or medical gender transition, and the primary reason gender diverse individuals seek gender-related mental healthcare. It will explore the experience of dysphoria in depth, as well as the opposing experience of gender euphoria. It will then cover how these concepts can be explored with clients to not only assess dysphoria clinically, but develop a targeted treatment plan based on different types of dysphoric experiences. It highlights a number of areas in which the treatment of gender dysphoria differs from traditional psychotherapy practice, requiring systemic interventions on a number of levels, and coordination of care between a variety of providers. This program is perfect for those who want to take their work with gender diverse individuals to the next level, becoming a nuanced, skilled evaluator, prepared to develop individualized treatment plans for these individuals, and for those who want to develop strong assessment skills before embarking on working with this population.

How can I keep track of the many types of gender identity terms and experiences out there? What are the best ways to talk to clients about gender identity? How do I know what I don't know about gender diversity? This webinar is intended to give an in-depth overview of the basics of gender diversity for clinicians. It covers the many different aspects that make up a person's experience of gender, including identity, gender expression/presentation, gender role, and biological sex, and provides a model that can be utilized with clients to explore their own identities. The webinar covers a variety of gender identities and the best language to use when talking about them, as well as explaining the differences between gender identity and sexual orientation. We will discuss what we do and don't know about how transgender identities occur as a basis for a gender-affirming model of care. A model that understands the experience of gender as internal and separate from one's biology. Finally, we will discuss important considerations for culturally affirming care of transgender and other gender diverse clients and how clinicians can prepare for this work and consider both the challenges and rewards of working with the transgender population.

Intuitive Eating: What Exactly Is It and Why Is It So Challenging To Learn? Why Social Workers need to know?

ID: 5122WEB

Recently there has been an abundance of information on intuitive and mindful eating. The two are actually different and the learning process is challenging. Intuitive eating is a multi-layered practice that can only be successful if a detailed inquiry of an individual’s "food story" is understood by the practitioner. The course will examine the process and participants will learn how to conduct a detailed food history with their clients as well as learn other useful skills. The reason why the development of intuitive eating is so challenging will be explored and illustrated with detailed case examples.

Parents as Healers: Recovering from the Trauma of Domestic Violence-WEB

ID: 1029WEB

This webinar will introduce an overall approach, Parents as Healers, which among other things gives the caregiver the knowledge and encouragement they need to be a dynamic partner with the therapist in the healing of their child’s trauma. Participants will learn how to create opportunities for parents and children to process traumatic experiences together using a variety of techniques including directive play therapy, verbal expression, creative arts, and more.

Guidelines for providing effective parent training for domestic violence survivors will be provided.

The Neurobiology of Trauma/PTSD

ID: 5235WEB

The overall goal of this webinar is for practitioners to understand that the development of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is not merely a psychosocial phenomenon and to be better able to provide treatment interventions based on changes in the nervous system. PTSD has been found to be prevalent, but it is important to study PTSD to understand why some individuals develop the disorder and others, also exposed to specific traumatic events, do not. Studying the symptomology of PTSD, as it relates to possible neural mechanisms, may provide some insight toward answering these questions. By the end of this webinar, you will be able to: list the three general categories of symptoms exhibited by individuals with PTSD; describe the role of the limbic system in the production of memory dysfunction in traumatized individuals; understand how the hypothalamus and pituitary gland are involved in the fight or flight response; and the benefits and side-effects of the most common pharmacological agents used to treat PTSD/Trauma.
