Bullies to Buddies

ID: 4185WEB

Since the tragedy of Columbine, schools have desperately attempted to eliminate the problem of bullying through strategies of punishing bullies, reinforcing the standard that bullying is wrong and by identifying role models who stand up against bullying. Even with all these efforts the problem of bullying is increasing. Schools are reporting an even higher number of bullying cases in the aftermath of the pandemic. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. In this webinar you will learn social skills that professionals can teach students to use in response to aggression from others. You will also learn the psychological principles that make this method so effective. The Bullies to Buddies method, developed by psychologist Izzy Kalman, teaches a way to respond to a bully that immediately decreases the incidence of bullying and strengthens the victim's resilience because they have been empowered to solve the problem. You will also learn how ways to help the bully decrease aggression and increase productive social behavior. This method doesn't just change the lives of individual students; it has the potential to change the entire culture of a school and its community.

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.

Introduction to Gender Diversity

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 is it and Why is it so Challenging to Learn? What 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.

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-

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. Through experiential processing parents become more sensitized and responsive to their child.

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

Should Psychotherapy Be Fun? Let's Talk About Dopamine

ID: 5432WEB

There are many goals of psychotherapy including managing difficult feelings, dealing with trauma, and making healthier behavioral choices. This webinar explores mechanisms of healing including utilizing the therapeutic relationship and understanding that what we expose ourselves to (people, the arts, movement) changes our neurotransmitters and therefore how we experience the world. This interactive workshop examines how we can help those we serve, and ourselves, to find areas of control and inspiration to elevate our mood and increase our sense of well-being. Utilizing various videos, this webinar reflects on what neurotransmitters are stimulated when we enjoy music, comedy, and physical movement. Using a strength-based approach, participants are encouraged to incorporate discussion of the arts, comedy, and physical movement into psychotherapy to stabilize and increase mood and foster empowerment among those we treat.

Supporting Adults, Teens, and Children Coping with Loss

ID: 5294WEB

Adults, teens and children experience many different types of loss: death, divorce, abandonment, foster care, illness, incarceration and deportation leaving them at higher risk for mental and physical illness, substance abuse and aggressive behavior. Learning how to support people after a loss enables them to live emotionally healthy, meaningful and productive lives. This workshop provides an understanding of the impact of loss on children and youth and adults. Attendees will learn the definitions and interrelatedness of loss, grief, mourning and resilience. The dominant culture encourages winning and success, but doesn’t focus on learning how to lose. This essential life skill can be learned as social workers and other professionals provide support to those who are grieving. This webinar will explore the connection between grief and shame as well as differing cultural "grief beliefs" after a loss. While this webinar will focus primarily on how to help people cope with a loss due to death, these concepts are transferable to all types of loss.

Termination of Pregnancy for Medical Reasons: A Unique Grief

ID: 5123WEB

Terminating a pregnancy due to fetal anomaly (TOPFA) during or after the second trimester of pregnancy may present as both an immediate and existential crisis for expectant parents. This presentation explores the unique bereavement of people who TOPFA as compared with other perinatal losses and provides an introduction to the population itself and the unique factors leading them to seek therapy. While TOPFA has been explored in qualitative research, there are few practice-based articles addressing both the nuts and bolts of therapeutic intervention as well as how to approach people’s attempts to grieve and mourn this loss. Successful, sensitive, and informed therapeutic interventions rooted in theoretical perspectives including continuing bonds and ambiguous loss may result in making meaning from their grief.

This presentation will apply theory to practice by introducing a model in which to conduct therapy entitled ACCEPT, and illustrate the intervention through the experience of a composite patient. In the future, a Part 2 webinar will be provided to explore the DOUBLE RAINBOW approach to clients who are subsequently pregnant after TOPFA.

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.

The Therapeutic Dance: Keeping One Eye on the Client and One Eye on Ourselves

ID: 1015WEB

As the pandemic continues and helping professionals experience their own trauma and the cumulative trauma of the clients they serve, it is more important than ever to become aware of how our own experiences and traumas affect our relationships with clients. This webinar will provide a review of attachment theory and the prevalence of traumatic transference when working with trauma survivors. Participants will have the opportunity to examine how their own attachment style affects their approach with clients. The concepts of empathic disequilibrium, empathic withdrawal, empathic enmeshment and empathic repression will be reviewed and discussed. Strategies for promoting self-awareness and self-care will be presented. When we do not care for ourselves or keep an eye on the therapeutic dance with clients, the likelihood of burnout, vicarious traumatization and empathic strain are real dangers for the health and well-being of the helper and the therapeutic relationship.

Trauma Informed Person-Centered Care

ID: 4515WEB

As various systems, including mental health and criminal justice services, strive to support those we work with to achieve their goals, we are regularly faced with challenging behaviors from our clients that often appear to be self-defeating. Difficulty identifying life goals, knowing the steps to achieve those goals, and managing anxiety and self-doubt as they move forward, is a particular challenge for trauma survivors who have often adjusted to lifestyles and coping skills that are, at times dangerous, and only enable them to survive and not thrive. Important concepts such as “learned helplessness” and “fight or flight” can assist helping professionals understand the origins of how our clients move through their lives, often unaware of how to break free from dysfunctional coping strategies. Using a person centered approach, along with motivational interviewing strategies, this webinar aims to help workers understand trauma informed care in action, and turn that understanding into strategies of empowerment.

Understand the Trans/Nonbinary Experience & Providing Affirming Care

ID: 5365WEB

Many transgender and non-binary people struggle to find therapists that are affirming of their identities, and even clinicians that are well meaning often have to be educated by their clients when it comes to their gender identities. This webinar is designed to facilitate consciousness-raising and depth of self-awareness of how gender socialization impacts and informs the therapeutic lens and therapeutic relationship. Participants will have opportunities for small group discussions and self-reflective activities to facilitate a depth of personal and professional understanding of how themes of gender inform clinical conceptualizations. Participants will also gain a foundational understanding of the lived experience of transgender and non-binary individuals, as well as core current affirmative language and terminology to use with gender-expansive individuals and groups.
