A look at Media, Misogyny, and the "Consumption" of Women

ID: 4201

This workshop invites participants to take an in-depth look at how we as a culture have become comfortable with the institutional consumption of women. The purpose of the workshop is to help prepare workers in the field to understand the insidious and often unconscious reality of the consumption of women from a biopsychosocial perspective. We will begin by exploring the deeply rooted patriarchy that ceaselessly promotes and is comfortable with the objectification and resultant consumption of women. We will examine this phenomena with a spotlight on mass media including print, entertainment, technology and social media. Next we will discuss the consequences of this patriarchal paradigm including gender-based economic injustice, the over-sexualization and objectification of women and children; labor and sex trafficking and the parallel issue of sex-worker's rights. Participants will have the opportunity to explore how they can inform positive change within their communities as individual clinicians and advocates, as well as through the tools of leadership and organization-building within the movement of violence against women and children.

Fatherhood

ID: 4926

This training highlights the correlation between positive involvement by fathers in their children's lives and the dynamic structural and systemic elements that impose barriers to healthy involvement.

LGBT Issues and the Law

ID: 4073

Being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered often requires clients to view who they are and what their rights are as defined by law. A general understanding of what the law says is required in many situations, such as: legalizing a relationship, ending a relationship, housing, protecting civil rights in employment, and asserting one?s rights when it comes to discrimination and hate crime victimization. This workshop will address what the helping professional needs to know when it comes to the New Jersey civil union and domestic partnership statutes, adoption law, the Law Against Discrimination and Hate Crimes Act, as well as the impact of Federal laws such as The Civil Rights Act, the Defense of Marriage Act, and the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, among other things. The participant will also learn who they can refer their client to and what kind of assistance is available to them, as well what changes are currently pending to make New Jersey safer and more equal for LGBT clients. Knowledge of the law is not necessary as the presenter is committed to making law understandable for social workers and other helping professionals. *This workshop does not qualify for NBCC clock hours in ethics

Mini-Certificate in Complex Trauma

ID: 8886

Drawing upon the most current conceptualizations of complex trauma, this four-day workshop will provide in-depth training in working with issues of complex trauma with older adolescents, adults and older adults. The workshop is designed for both clinicians new to working with complex trauma-spectrum problems, as well as for more experienced clinicians in various clinical settings. Clinicians will learn the essential principles of a phase-oriented, relational approach. Utilizing a resilience based, attachment-focused framework, clinicians will experience how to provide the necessary conditions for safely assisting clients in healing from complex traumatic disorders. In order to foster the kind of depth-oriented learning required to address the topic, the workshop is designed as a "closed cohort" model, i.e., the same group of particpants will be enrolled for the four day sequence, working closely in small groups for maximum participation.

Week One: Current Conceptualizations and Biopsychosocial Assessment of Complex Trauma This module provides an introduction to the series, as well as a theoretical foundation for the intervention approach. The developmental etiology and neurobiological consequences of complex trauma will be reviewed through the lens of current research on attachment. Potential psychological and physical consequences of untreated complex trauma across the lifespan will be discussed. Clinical assessment of complex trauma will be reviewed, through the use of case vignettes and videotapes, highlighting managing the clinical interview, engaging the client, and setting the stage for treatment. Risk/vulnerability and resilience profiles will be presented so participants can understand the range of complexity inherent in treating complex trauma.

Week Two: Differential Diagnosis and Ethical Issues Encountered in the Treatment of Complex Trauma and Phase-Oriented Treatment Model The morning module focuses on diagnostic dilemmas that clinicians face in accurately assessing complex trauma, as well as the ethical issues that are commonly encountered in working with individuals suffering from this type of distress. Identifying commonly misdiagnosed "presentations" of complex trauma, avoiding clinical pitfalls that can lead to ethical dilemmas, and adopting a process and outcome-focused treatment response model are presented as essential prerequisites to working with these issues. Case vignettes and small group exercises will provide experiential learning opportunities. The afternoon module presents an overview of the phase-oriented, relational approach (Courtois and Ford, 2013) that provides clinical guidelines for maintaining safety, providing structure, responding to particular reactions and issues, and managing the clinical disruptions that are inherent in the treatment of these trauma-spectrum problems.

Week Three: Implementation of the Phase-Oriented Treatment of Complex Trauma The focus of this module will be on matching client needs to treatment sequences and interventions. The morning session will focus on applying the phase-oriented relational approach to trauma-spectrum problems through the use of case vignettes, videotapes and small group practice exercises. The afternoon session will review evidence-based treatment models, such as cognitive processing therapy, prolonged exposure therapy, EMDR, sensorimotor psychotherapy and narrative exposure therapy as examples of clinical approaches that can be integrated within the phase- oriented model. Continued practice exercises in small groups of three will focus on applying essential skills to case vignettes. Time permitting, case consultation and discussion will be provided at the end of this module.

Week Four: Building a Complex Trauma Model: Essential Practice Principles This module further develops and deepens the competencies acquired through previous modules, focusing on integrating and applying best practice approaches to working with complex trauma across a variety of settings and populations. Drawing upon the experience of the prominent clinicians and scholars in the field, application of a complex trauma model is reviewed and discussed, with continued practice of specific clinical situations, such as working with the dissociative client, addressing safety needs in real world contexts of domestic violence, and providing culturally responsive approaches to traumatic grief. This module concludes with an experiential segment on self-care for clinicians, and developing communities of practice to sustain trauma workers in the field.

Shifting Paradigms, Challenging Perceptions

ID: 4949

Clients often present with a limited capacity to meet the varying demands and challenges of introspection in treatment and recovery. Many individuals are so busy reacting to what life throws at them that they dont realize the need, or take the time to build the necessary cognitive and coping skills to develop multiple options in approaching life's problems. Professionals often learn about family dynamics, dealing with resistance and getting clients unstuck, but may lack the practical knowledge or experience to initiate, provide, and model, a variety of skills for shifting paradigms and challenging perceptions. You may have been asked to think out-of-the-box but, have you ever been told how to do it? To paraphrase Albert Einstein, we cant use the same thinking to solve a problem that got us into it. This workshop provides a variety of strategies for clients and professionals to help them actually think out-of-the-box, and generating greater options.
