Becoming a "Good-Enough" Mother: From Pregnancy to Birth to Healthy Attachment

ID: 5278

This workshop is about the journey of motherhood, particularly the key areas of pregnancy, postpartum issues, and attachment. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of what mental health issues can surface for a woman during and after pregnancy. Participants will explore the projections and fantasies that can arise for women during pregnancy, as well as the transference issues that can surface if the therapist herself is pregnant. The symptoms and treatment of postpartum mood disorders will be discussed at length. Finally, D. W. Winnicott's concept of the "good-enough" mother will be explored in its connection to a healthy attachment from mother to baby. Case examples and interventions will be explored, and extensive resources, reading lists, and current research articles will be provided. The workshop will be a combination of lecture and group process. Participants are free to bring case examples.

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.

Self-Care: Holistic Health for Clinician and Client

ID: 4213

The term “self-care” is vague and overused. This workshop aims to reclaim self-care as a principle of holistic mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health, rather than as a buzzword for underdeveloped treat yourself sessions. This workshop will help clinicians to integrate the core principles of any healthy and effective self-care regimen, including responses to acute stress. You will learn to recognize the relationship between holistic health and true self-care. Discover common issues hindering self-care, such as a tendency for brain hyperfrontality, chronic hyperthermia, lack of hormesis response, chronic inflammation, carcinogenic diets, and emotional deprivation. Learn to employ core medical principles that are essential to all mental health clinicians’ toolbox.
