Addictions in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Communities: If Gay Means Happy Why Am I Always Getting High?

ID: 4333

LGBT people are more likely to use alcohol, tobacco and other drugs than the general population.

The workshop examines the complexity of sexual identity and gender expression, social and cultural variables, mental health, and trauma history that influence problematic use, abuse and dependence on alcohol, tobacco, drugs and other addictions. Participants will be better able to provide LGBTQ Affirmative treatment interventions in helping clients to enact behavior changes in the process of recovery from addictions.

CBT for Illness: Using CBT Skills for Disease Related Anxiety

ID: 5734

This workshop will provide clinicians with the necessary tools and techniques to help clients and caregivers make meaning out of a life-altering illness such as cancer, HIV, or heart disease. When clients and caregivers are informed of life-altering illness, the question of “Why” is often rhetorically asked. This question can raise existential angst. For some, thinking of mortality or the pressure to now “seize the day” can feel overwhelming. This workshop will provide clinicians the opportunity to guide and support clients through these evidence-based techniques to improve their coping.

Co-Occurring Disorders: Going Beyond the Boundaries of Diagnosis

ID: 5224

We used to call individuals with mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders a "special" population, but over the years we have become aware that the prevalence is so great that they are our population. This workshop is designed for helping professionals who may need hope, understanding and methods for dealing with the most difficult of behaviors. An overview of the development of disorders, the interrelationship of mental illness and substance use, levels of severity, and how to sort through symptoms of each disorder will be explored. We will explore how attention to diagnosis, rather than attention to the total person can complicate engagement and treatment. This workshop will provide underlying principles for assessment, diagnosis, treatment and recovery support that can be provided in any agency in any system.

Eating Disorders: Exploring Evidence Supported Treatments

ID: 5296

The eating disorder treatment landscape … has changed dramatically over the past 20 years” (Attia et al., 2017). Indeed, evidence supported treatments (ESTs) reveal promising results for clients with disordered eating behaviors (DEB) and related mental health problems. Yet, despite the development and availability of treatments relevant to eating disorders a critical gap exists between these treatments and their integration into clinical practice. To address this gap, this course will inform clinicians about recent developments concerning what works and for whom. A broad range of treatment interventions " their plusses and minuses" will be examined. These include CBT modified specifically for ED clients (CBT-ED), treatments that increase self-compassion, reduce body image shame, guided self-help approaches (e.g. CBT-gsh), plus other evidence supported strategies (e.g. pendulation, somatic experiencing and EFT).

Recovery Oriented Psychotherapy: What Therapists Need to Know to Work with Alcohol & Drug Problems in an Outpatient Setting

ID: 4970

Mental Health clinicians often believe that they can’t appropriately or effectively work with persons with substance use problems, and that such clients are best treated by specialists in addictions. In fact, mental health therapists are often the most appropriate professionals for such work. There is a 50% overlap between the mental health and substance using populations, and the therapist’s skill set is readily applicable to this population. This workshop has the objective of adding to the therapist’s knowledge base and skill set to begin to effectively address the co-occurring substance use problems already in your current caseload.

The Link between Trauma and Substance Abuse: Causes, Signs, and Treatment Indications

ID: 5041

This workshop is designed to educate both the substance abuse counselor and mental health professional on the prevalence of substance abuse and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, and importance of cross education for themselves to ensure the best outcomes for their client. The workshop begins with an overview of the long history of specific populations who are most often diagnosed with both disorders and the poor treatment outcomes when the attempt is made to treat each separately and not concurrently. The chemical reactions created by both traumatic stress and substance abuse are discussed and the research linking them. Finally, some successful treatment models are discussed with experiential exercises participants can use in early stages and later treatment with this population.
