Transgender Mental Healthcare for the 21st Century: Therapeutic Innovations with the Gender-Diverse

Stacee L. Reicherzer, Ph.D.

3 CONTACT HOURS

Workshop Description:

If you’ve worked with transgender or gender nonconforming clients, it probably took some time to stop feeling very self-conscious about your use of correct pronouns. Or you got mired in the complexity of diagnosing gender dysphoria when other mental health concerns, substance abuse, or life challenges were occurring. Perhaps you even questioned your right to provide service with very limited transgender clinical experience. In this energizing webinar, Dr. Stacee Reicherzer will bring transgender and gender nonconforming experiences to life, guiding you through terminology, case conceptualization, and strength-based care for clients across the gender continua. We’ll talk drag, we’ll talk transsexual, we’ll talk gender fluidity; and all of the gender experiences that exist in-between. Additionally, audience members will be provided with templates for creating letters of diagnosis for medical referrals. You don’t want to miss this engaging and fun learning experience!

Learning Objectives:

As a result of attending this session, audience members will be able to:

  1. Work from a trans-competent and strength-based framework in providing clinical services for transgender and gender nonconforming clients.

Utilizing Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in the Treatment of Addictions

Chad Yates, Ph.D., LPC & Caroline Brown

3 CONTACT HOURS

Workshop Description:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) has grown in popularity in the recent decade. Research has documented its efficacy in treating a variety of mental health and addiction-related concerns. ACT belongs within the third wave of behavioral therapies. Third wave therapies emphasize mindfulness, emotions, acceptance, the relationship, values, goals, and meta‐cognition. ACT aims to help clients behave, or act in ways, that are flexible to their environment, their inner emotional states, with current thoughts, and to help them clarify and live within the value systems they hold.

ACT views addiction as a learned behavior that overtakes the healthy functioning of individuals. Using ACT with clients with substance use disorders can help clients explore how they behave to avoid pain and suffering associated with thoughts and emotions. Helping clients understand the connections between how they feel, think, and behave can help them change their relationship to previous behaviors like drinking and drug use.

This presentation will explore briefly the theoretical underpinnings of ACT, explore how ACT conceptualizes substance and process-related addictions, and include interventions that clinicians can use to introduce ACT practices within treatment.

Learning Objectives:

1.Attendees will learn the theoretical underpinnings of ACT

2. Attendees will learn how ACT conceptualizes substance and process related addictions

3. Attendees will learn ACT interventions to use within the treatment of substance use disorders

Interdisciplinary Ethical Decision-Making for Emotional Support Animal Recommendations

Leslie Stewart, Ph.D.

3 CONTACT HOURS

Workshop Description:

The popularity of including animals in human healthcare is exponentially increasing, as are client/patient requests for Emotional Support Animals. When presented with a request for an Emotional Support Animal letter, many clinicians are uninformed about important legal, ethical, and treatment planning related considerations associated with such requests. Despite the growing popularity of animals’ roles in human healthcare, many providers and clinicians remain unaware of important role distinctions, access rights, liability concerns, and animal welfare considerations associated with different types of helper animals. In this workshop, the presenter will orient attendees to 3 vastly different helper animal roles: Service Animals/Assistance Animals, Therapy Animals, and Emotional Support Animals. Further, the presenter will provide evidence based best practice recommendations associated with each of the 3 helper animal roles.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify and define 3 distinctive helper animal roles: Service/Assistance Animals, Emotional Support Animals, and Therapy Animals.
  • Discuss legal, ethical, and best practices considerations relevant to all 3 roles discussed above.
  • Generate informed decisions about including or formally supporting a helper animal in a client’s treatment plan.
  • Describe documentation, policies and procedures appropriate to each helper animal role.
  • Identify appropriate and ethical inclusion of animals in professional settings and respond to inappropriate or unethical inclusions of animals in a professional setting.
  • Identify resources for developing provider competence in therapeutic human-animal interactions.

The Human-Animal Bond in Counseling: Ethics and Applied Strategies

Leslie Stewart, Ph.D.

3 CONTACT HOURS

Workshop Description:

Enthusiasm surrounding the therapeutic application of the human-animal bond is steadily growing among the general public, client populations, and mental health providers. While the popularity of these approaches is on the rise, few are aware of the unique ethical and professionalization considerations of this highly specialized and nuanced approach. In this workshop, the presenter aims to provide an introductory orientation to the complex world of human-animal relationships and other forms of biophilia in professionalized healthcare and discuss the myriad of ways to include such approaches into treatment planning and wellness optimization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify and define distinctive animal roles: Service/Assistance Animals, Emotional Support Animals, Therapy Animals, and Companion Animals.
  • Understand and describe the theoretical underpinnings of beneficial human-animal relationships and interactions, and; the empirical basis for what kinds of human-animal interactions are beneficial, which are contra-indicated.
  • Discuss unique ethical and professionalization considerations relevant to the therapeutic application of the human-animal bond.
  • Generate a step-by-step plan towards integrating the human-animal bond into one’s own practice.

Using Disenfranchised Grief as a Lens to Work with Marginalized Populations Impacted by Racial Injustice

Olivia Ngadjui, Ph.D. & Elizabeth Horn, Ph.D.

3 CONTACT HOURS

Workshop Description:

This presentation provides an overview of disenfranchised grief, a form of grief that goes unrecognized by society, and the ways in which marginalized populations impacted by racial injustice may inherently experience it. This is in supportive response to the recent nationwide spotlighting of harm done to Black lives (e.g. Breonna Taylor, Tiffany "Dior" Harris, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery) to foster culturally sensitive consideration and care for clients who may grieve those public losses. Through conceptualizing both overt and covert forms of discrimination through the lens of disenfranchised grief, practitioners may be able to help clients recognize losses and grief reactions of which they were previously unaware. The recognition of disenfranchised grief can lead to greater adaptation and integration of losses and help clients to strengthen their identity and promote healing.

Learning Objectives:

1)    Attendees will learn about the current trends in grief and loss as well as racial injustice

2)    Attendees will learn about disenfranchised grief and the ways in which it manifests

3)    Attendees will learn how to identify disenfranchised grief within marginalized populations impacted by racial injustice

4)    Attendees will learn how to conceptualize and work with marginalized populations experiencing disenfranchised grief in order to promote adaptation, empower identity, and healing.

What is Unconscious Bias and What do we know about it? A Reckoning for Vocational Rehabilitation and Counseling Professionals

Bryan Austin, Ph.D. & Ne'Shaun Borden, Ph.D.

3 CONTACT HOURS

Workshop Description:

Accurate clinical judgments are needed to make sound clinical decisions related to client assessment and service delivery. Unfortunately, counselors may unconsciously make biased judgments or judgment errors during key decision points that may interfere with achieving optimal client outcomes. Therefore, understanding the bias research as well as how counselors make judgments, while also applying a model of practice that recognizes this inherent limitation, but that includes a preventative stance such as intentionally integrating counselor debiasing strategies, may be important.

Opportunities to conceptualize and demonstrate empirically-supported strategies relevant for vocational rehabilitation and other counseling professionals to improve judgments and decision-making in professional practice will also be provided. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Bias research and why it’s important to know for practice
  • Model of how counselors make judgments
  • Application of empirically-supported counselor debiasing strategies

Cameron Staley, Ph.D., BCB

6 CONTACT HOURS

Workshop Description:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of the few research supported treatments for compulsive sexual behaviors like unwanted pornography viewing. As an alternative to traditional “addiction” approaches which can interfere with behavioral change and healthy sexual development, ACT provides a comprehensive framework for addressing core underlying concerns that maintain problematic pornography viewing.

Evaluate ACT treatment outcome studies

Identify four main pathological processes underlying problematic pornography viewing

Interdisciplinary Series Part I: Introduction to Motivational Interviewing

Leslie Stewart, Ph.D., LCPC & Chad Yates, Ph.D., LPC

6 CONTACT HOURS

Workshop Description:

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a person-centered interviewing 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 provider’s ability to effectively work with diverse populations presenting with a full spectrum of readiness for change. MI is an empirically supported approach for mental health providers, medical professionals, and other human service professionals. In this workshop, the presenter will orient attendees to the philosophy and theoretical underpinnings of MI and introduce microskills 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. Primary objectives include MI-compliant relationship building, microskills, assessment, and case conceptualization. The curriculum will also introduce relevant legal, ethical, and multicultural considerations. After completing this program, attendees will be prepared to engage in the Advanced Motivational Interviewing Workshop.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify and define theoretical foundations appropriate to Motivational Interviewing.

2. Discuss the role of client values, ambivalence, and discrepancies in Motivational Interviewing.

3. Differentiate between Motivational Interviewing and the Stages of Change Model, and understand how the 2 philosophies may be successfully integrated.

4. Identify and describe OARS skills.

5. Describe treatment planning, assessments, and other clinical documentations relevant to Motivational Interviewing.
