Autism = Always Unique Totally Interesting Sometimes Mysterious

Jaxson Stark, MMHC, LCPC, NCC
8 CONTACT HOURS

In the 1970s and 1980s it was estimated that 1 in 2000 kids were diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  In recent years that number has risen to 1 in 68. While there is an ongoing debate as to why this number has increased and the causes of Autism, a more functional question is: “What are clinicians to do in the treatment of this and other developmental disorders?”  Even though clinicians may not be specialized in Autism studies and treatment, there is a high likelihood that they are already working with the “always unique, totally interesting, sometimes mysterious” population. This workshop is designed to help develop insight and awareness of diagnosis, resources, interventions and overall treatment of individuals with Autism Spectrum and other developmental disorders.

Objectives:

Increase awareness, confidence, and competence in the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder and differential diagnosis.

Learn real world, in office interventions to enhance the counseling relationship with clients and their support systems.

Gain a greater understanding of the myths, facts and nuances of working with individuals diagnosed with developmental disabilities.

Registration Fee: $100

Building an Affirmative Practice: How to Work with Clients in the LGBTQ+ Community

Jen Moore, M.Coun., LPC
15 CONTACT HOURS or GRADUATE CREDIT

Though more mental health professionals today have positive attitudes toward the LGBTQ+ community, people still face unequal care due to a lack of training, examinations of own personal bias, and/or understanding of Queer culture. Mental health care providers still do not always have up-to-date knowledge of the unique needs of the LGBTQ+ community or training on LGBTQ+ mental health issues. Providers who lack knowledge and experience working with members of the LGBTQ+ community may focus more on a person’s sexual orientation and/or gender identity than a person’s mental health condition.

Striving towards increased multicultural competence, this workshop will help clinicians increase their knowledge of LGBTQ+ language/terms while exploring heteronormativity and cisgender normativity and the privileges of living within one or both of those worlds. Participants will discuss timely and pertinent ethical considerations and explore what their licensure-specific code of ethics advise regarding such considerations. Through this increased competency, participants will work towards the goal of learning how to create safer spaces while supporting and celebrating the resilience of those they work with within the Queer community.

  • Increase knowledge of language and terms common to LGBTQ+ community
  • Explore own understanding of gender, sexuality, and other such identities as it relates to self and to LGBTQ+ clients
  • Discuss ethical considerations when working with members of the LGBTQ+ community regarding personal bias,  recommended competencies, and referrals
  • Increase ability in creating safer spaces and fostering resilience for LGBTQ+ clients within office, agency, school, and community settings
  • Learn resources available for so as to continue working on increased competency and be better equipped to support LGBTQ+ clients

Introduction to Motivational Interviewing: Theoretical Foundations and Skills

Leslie Stewart, Ph.D.
15 CONTACT HOURS or GRADUATE CREDIT 

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a person-centered counseling style for addressing the common problem of ambivalence about change. MI is a collaborative partnership that respects the other’s autonomy, seeking to understand the person’s internal frame of reference (Miller & Rollnick, 2013). When practiced with appropriate training, MI is a valuable and empirically supported approach that enhances a counselor’s ability to  effectively work with diverse client populations presenting with a full spectrum of readiness for change. MI may be integrated with all counseling theoretical orientations and is compatible with many other models/approaches to counseling. In this workshop, the presenter will orient attendees to the philosophy and theoretical underpinnings of MI and introduce intervention skills specific to MI. A combination of lecture and experiential skill role-plays will be used to help attendees understand and apply MI skills and philosophy.

Please Note: This is an introductory-level workshop appropriate to current students and practicing counselors interested in integrating MI into their counseling approach. Advanced workshops may become available based on demand.

Learning Objectives:

  •         Identify and define theoretical foundations appropriate to Motivational Interviewing.
  •         Discuss the role of client values, ambivalence, and discrepancies in Motivational Interviewing.
  •         Differentiate between Motivational Interviewing and the Stages of Change Model, and understand how the 2 philosophies may be successfully integrated.
  •         Identify and demonstrate OARS skills.
  •         Describe treatment planning, assessments, and other clinical documentations relevant to Motivational Interviewing.
  •         Discuss Ethical and Multicultural considerations relevant to Motivational Interviewing.
