Identification and Clinical Strategies for Working with Co-Occurring Adolescent Disorders

Current statistics point to rising experimentation, use, and dependency of substances in clients under the age of 25. In fact, this group represents the largest growing segment of the population seeking treatment for substance abuse. Treatment providers struggle to keep up with current trends in both use and treatment and are often unsuccessful in engaging this population. Using case studies and a highly experiential format, participants will learn how to identify adolescents and young adults at risk for substance abuse, common substances of abuse, and strategies to engage the adolescent, family, and community for successful treatment outcomes.

Parents as Healers: Strategies to Incorporate Caregivers into Treatment Sessions

ID: 5215

There is increasing evidence to support the claim that therapy is more effective when the parent and child are seen together or the parent is placed in a pivotal role. Mega-studies are showing strong support for the effectiveness of family based treatments, the importance of bonding and relationship in childhood trauma, and the efficacy of parent training for disruptive behavior disorders. Yet, research also indicates that in practice parents and their children are frequently seen separately or the role of the caregiver is marginalized. This workshop will teach participants how to make parents a dynamic part of treatment planning and intervention. It will also demonstrate how to incorporate parents and children together in strategies using CBT, DBT, directive play, psychoeducation, and creative arts to address a wide range of mental health issues. Learn how to enable the caregiver to be the primary healer by encouraging the parent to be active within the session, making their concerns and observations a priority, and having them continue the healing with home based strategies.

The Relational Base of the Integrative Approach

ID: 5243

A basic goal of couples therapy is to help therapists foster a couples ability to think about their experience in a relational and bidirectional perspective as opposed to the perspective of two separate individuals caught in a blaming cycle in which one partner is the villain and the other is the victim. Through restructuring the couples interaction in the room, the therapist helps the couple recognize the relational dramas they re-enact over and over again with each other helping them to become more flexible, compassionate, and intimate in the relationship. The therapist must be an active participant in co-creating safety, reducing threat, and engendering self and relational reflectiveness. This workshop will address the important concepts and interventions in this approach through lecture and practice-oriented exercises.
