Psychotherapy and Counseling with Older Adults

ID: 1070

This workshop will dispel the all-too-common assumption that psychotherapy and counseling are not effective treatment modalities with senior adults. Contrary to the belief that seniors are "inflexible and stuck in their ways" as well as having diminished cognitive and reflective capacity, studies indicate that they can benefit as much from these modalities as younger persons, albeit with some different approaches, techniques and goals. In this workshop we will consider the special strengths and challenges of senior adults, the place of their particular life cycle issues and how to understand and use transference, resistance, support and interpretation in working with this population. Many case examples and exercises will be offered.

The Secret Life of Hoarding

ID: 1130

According to the International OCD Foundation (IOCD): "Hoarding has been a hidden disorder for many years and before the early 1990?s, there was little research on topic." Increased awareness with hoarding, throughout the lifespan, has occurred due to clinical issues such as unhealthy living conditions that impact individuals, families, and communities. This workshop, "The Secret Life of Hoarding" will concentrate on the older adult who meets the criteria of Hoarding Disorder as per the DSM 5. Participants will practice skills in working with the older adult who meets this criteria as well as identifying strategies for family members who are involved with an older adult who is diagnosed with this disorder.

Trauma Informed Programs: A Forum for Agency Planning and Change

ID: 7688

This workshop is designed for program administrators, supervisors and individuals who have a desire to become a trauma informed care setting, and who can affect systems change within their agency. We will set a foundation for systems change by reviewing how trauma impacts those we serve. Participants will review and utilize the elements of a trauma informed system of care as we perform an agency self-assessment of staff and program readiness to incorporate trauma into the treatment milieu. A SWOT analysis will begin your preparation for change by developing your strengths and needs into a "TO-DO" list: making growth toward becoming trauma informed painless, clear and meaningful. Through both small and large group discussion, we shall share strategies and boost your potential to create growth within your agency. Because sustainability is always a factor with change, we will develop plans to identify the trauma champions within your program structure who will provide that reinforcement and accountability. An important part of the process, we shall also review the role of care for the caregivers as we refine a supervision model that can be incorporated into your agency. Roll up your sleeves and be trauma informed! This workshop does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours.
